You can enable or disable fast convergence for the entire switch to
improve EAPS convergence times.
Possible factors affecting EAPS fast convergence time:
- The medium type of the link being flapped (Fiber link-down events
are detected faster than copper, causing better convergence).
- Number of VLANs protected by the EAPS domain (convergence time
increases with the number of protected VLANs).
- Number of FDB entries present during
the switch over (convergence time increases with the number of FDBs learned).
- Topology change event (link down or link up) causes the master node
to send an FDB flush to all transits. In the event ofa shared port failure, FDB is flushed
twice, causing an increase in convergence time.
- Number of hops between the switch where the link flap happens and
the master node (convergence increases with the number of hops).
To enable or disable fast convergence on the switch, use
the following command:
eaps fast-convergence[off | on]
