Notifies the CFM that EAPs is interested in notifications for the specified MEP and RMEP pair.

Syntax Description

cfm Connectivity Fault Management.
add Add a MEP group.
delete Delete a MEP group.
group group_name MEP group to bind.



Usage Guidelines

This command notifies CFM that EAPs is interested in notifications for this MEP and RMEP pair. This MEP should already be bound to a physical port, so when notification is received, EAPS (Extreme Automatic Protection Switching) associates that notification with a ring-port failure.


The following command deletes the control VLAN (Virtual LAN) keys from the EAPS domain eaps_1:

configure eaps cfm add


This command was first available in ExtremeXOS 15.2.

Platform Availability

This command is available on all EXOS platforms; however, not all platforms support hardware-based CFM. Platforms with no hardware-based CFM support are limited to software-based CFM transmit intervals of 100 ms or higher. Hardware-based intervals can go as low as 3.3 ms.
