This command configures the stale route timer. This timer is started when the restarting BGP peer goes to the ESTABLISHED state after it restarts. The timer is stopped when the restarting BGP peer sends EOR messages for all address families. When the timer is stopped, or it expires, the stale routes are deleted.
The following command configures the graceful BGP stale route timer:
configure bgp restart stale-route-time 400
