configure eaps failtime
Configures the period after which the master node declares a failure if no hello PDUs are received.
|name||Specifies the name of an EAPS domain.|
|seconds||Specifies the number of seconds the master node waits before the failtimer expires. Default is 3 seconds, and the range is 0 to 300 seconds.|
|milliseconds||Specifies the number of milliseconds to wait before the failtimer expires. The range is 300 to 999 milliseconds.|
The default is 3 seconds.
Use the failtime keyword and its associated seconds parameter to specify the amount of time the master node waits before the failtimer expires. The failtime period (seconds plus milliseconds) must be set greater than the configured value for hellotime. The default value is three seconds.
Increasing the failtime value reduces the likelihood of false failure detections caused by network congestion.
You configure the action taken when the failtimer expires by using the configure eaps failtime expiry-action command.
In ExtremeXOS 11.0, the failtimer range was 2 to 60 seconds.
The following command configures the failtimer value for the EAPS domain eaps_1 to 15 seconds:
configure eapseaps_1failtime15 0
The following command configures the failtimer value for the EAPS domain eaps_2 to 300 milliseconds:
configure eapseaps_2failtime0 300
This command was first available in ExtremeXOS 11.0.
The range for the failtimer was changed to 2 to 300 seconds in ExtremeXOS 11.1. The default value for the failtimer remains unchanged.
The milliseconds parameter was added in ExtremeXOS 12.4.2.
This command is available on ExtremeSwitching X435, X440-G2, X450-G2, X460-G2, X465, X590, X620, and X695 series switches.
