configure ospfv3 spf-hold-time

configure ospfv3 spf-hold-time seconds


Configures the minimum number of seconds between Shortest Path First (SPF) recalculations.

Syntax Description

spf-hold-time SPF hold time.
seconds Specifies a time in seconds. The range is 0 to 300 seconds.


3 seconds.

Usage Guidelines

Setting the interval too high will force OSPFv3 (Open Shortest Path First version 3) to run SPF calculations less frequently. This will reduce the CPU load, but will cause delay in routes getting updated in the IPv6 routing table. Setting the interval too low will decreases the interval between SPF calculations, but will increase the processing load on CPU.


The following command configures the minimum number of seconds between Shortest Path First (SPF) recalculations:

configure ospfv3 spf-hold-time 6
