enable iproute bfd
Enables the BFD client to provide services for IPv4 static routes.
|ip_addr||Specifies the IPv4 address of a neighbor to which BFD services are to be provided.|
|vrname||Specifies the VR or VRF name for which BFD services are being enabled.|
To enable BFD services to an IPv4 neighbor, you must do the following:
- Execute this command on the switches at both ends of the link.
- Enable BFD for specific IPv4 static routes with the configure iproute add [destination network] [gateway] bfd command.
Once a BFD session is established between two neighbors, BFD notifies the Route Manager process of the BFD session status and any changes. If other BFD clients (such as the MPLS BFD client) are configured between the same neighbors, the clients share a single session between the neighbors.
The following example enables BFD client protection for communications with neighbor 10.10.10.1:
# enable iproute bfd 10.10.10.1
This command was first available in ExtremeXOS 12.5.3.
This command is available on ExtremeSwitching 5320, 5420, 5520, and 5720 series switches.
