Syntax Description

reload-interval Specifies configuring the time between bringing up individual MLAG ports when reload delay is enabled.
none Specifies not waiting between bringing up individual MLAG ports (default).
reload_interval_msec Specifies the time interval between bringing up MLAG ports in milliseconds. The range is 0–10,000.


By default, this feature is disabled.

Usage Guidelines

MLAG reload delay timer is used to disable MLAG ports during configuration load to allow time for the convergence of protocols and for reachability of MLAG peers (configure mlag ports reload-delay reload-delay. When there is a large number of MLAG ports (50+), and when all of them are brought up at the same time after the reload delay timer expires, a high convergence time of 1.5 seconds might occur. This command configures a time delay between each of the MLAG ports coming up.

To view the current selection for reload interval, use the show mlag ports {port_list} command.


The following example configures reload delay interval of 50 milliseconds:

# configure mlag ports reload-interval 50


This command was first available in ExtremeXOS 22.7.2.
