Enable Cluster Tracking on CEP Interfaces

By default, EFA enables reload-delay configuration on all Cluster Edge Port (CEP) Interfaces. Reload-delay and cluster-tracking configurations are mutually exclusive.

About this task

When cluster tracking is enabled, an interface can track the state of an MCT (multi-chassis tunnel) cluster and divert traffic to alternative paths when a cluster is down for reasons such as maintenance mode.

To enable cluster tracking on CEP interfaces, you must remove the reload-delay configuration.


  1. Remove the reload-delay configuration on CEP interface.
    # efa inventory device execute-cli --ip --command "Interface ethernet 0/1, no reload-delay enable" --config
  2. Configure cluster tracking.
    # efa inventory device execute-cli --ip --command "Interface ethernet 0/1, cluster-track" --config
