Hierarchy Level


Support of precision-timers in the kernel is a feature where the kernel takes over auto-generation of BGP keepalives right after the switchover from standby to primary event occurs. The kernel in the RE continues this auto-generation until the BGP protocol is able to take over the session or until a maximum period has elapsed since the switchover event occurred. The maximum period for which the kernel auto-generates keepalives on behalf of BGP after a switchover event from standby to primary ranges from 60 seconds to 1800 seconds. The default value is 600 seconds.
