configure eaps fast-convergence

configure eaps fast-convergence[off | on]


Enables EAPS (Extreme Automatic Protection Switching) to converge more quickly.

Syntax Description

off Turns fast-convergence off. Default is off.
on Turns fast-convergence on.


Default is off.

Usage Guidelines

This command acts on the switch, not per domain.

In certain environments to keep packet loss to a minimum when the ring is broken, configure EAPS with fast-convergence turned on. If fast convergence is turned on, you can view the configuration with the show eaps command.



If fast-convergence is turned on, the link filters on all EAPS ring ports are turned off. This can result problems if the port‘s hardware encountered a problem and started “flapping” between link-up/link-down states.


The following command configures fast convergence for all of the EAPS domains on the switch:

configure eapsfast-convergence on


This command was first available in ExtremeXOS 11.0.
