configure edp advertisement-interval

configure edp advertisment-interval timer holddown-interval timeout


Sets the advertisement interval and hold down interval for EDP.

Syntax Description

timer Specifies the advertisement interval in seconds.
timeout Specifies the hold down interval in seconds.


The default setting for timer is 60 seconds, and for timeout is 180 seconds.

Usage Guidelines

Extreme Discover Protocol (EDP) is used to gather information about neighbor Extreme Networks switches. EDP-enabled ports advertise information about the Extreme switch to other switches on the interface and receive advertisements from other Extreme switches. Information about other Extreme switches is discarded after the hold down interval timeout value is reached without receiving another advertisement.


The following command configures the EDP advertisement-interval to 2 minutes and the hold down interval to 6 minutes:

configure edp advertisement-interval 120 holddown-interval 360


This command was first available in ExtremeXOS 10.1.

Platform Availability

This command is available on ExtremeSwitching X435, X440-G2, X450-G2, X460-G2, X465, X590, X620, and X695 series switches.
