msec Specifies an MLAG peer health-check hello interval in milliseconds. The range is 50-10000ms. The default is 1000ms.


The interval default is 1000 milliseconds.

Usage Guidelines

Use this command to configure the length of time between health check hello packets exchanged between MLAG peer switches. After three health check hellos are lost, the MLAG peer switch is declared to be failed, triggering an MLAG topology change.


The following command sets an interval of 700 milliseconds on the switch101 peer. switch:

configure mlag peer switch101 interval 700
