enable rip triggerupdates

Triggered updates are a mechanism for immediately notifying a router‘s neighbors when the router adds or deletes routes or changes their metric.

enable rip triggerupdates


Enables the trigger update mechanism.

Syntax Description

This command has no arguments or variables.



Usage Guidelines

Triggered updates occur whenever a router changes the metric for a route and it is required to send an update message immediately, even if it is not yet time for a regular update message to be sent. This will generally result in faster convergence, but may also result in more RIP (Routing Information Protocol)-related traffic.


The following command enables the trigger update mechanism:

enable rip triggerupdate
