timeout-grace (Access)


Hierarchy Level


Configure a grace period during which a RADIUS server that times out after failing to respond to an authentication request is not considered to be down (if other servers are available) or unreachable (if it is the only configured server). The server is marked as down or unreachable only when it does not successfully respond to an authentication request during the grace period and times out again after the period expires.

You can use long grace periods to give unresponsive servers more opportunities to respond before abandoning them. You can use short grace periods to cause the router to declare unresponsive servers down and direct requests to available servers sooner.


seconds—Duration of the server timeout grace period.
