enable ripng triggerupdates

enable ripng triggerupdates {vlan vlan-name | tunnel tunnel_name | [vlan | tunnel] all}


Enables the trigger update mechanism. Triggered updates are a mechanism for immediately notifying a router‘s neighbors when the router adds or deletes routes or changes their metric.

Syntax Description

vlan-name Specifies an IPv6 configured VLAN.
tunnel_name Specifies an IPv6 tunnel.
all Specifies all interfaces.



Usage Guidelines

Triggered updates occur whenever a router changes the metric for a route and it is required to send an update message immediately, even if it is not yet time for a regular update message to be sent. This will generally result in faster convergence, but may also result in more RIPng-related traffic.


The following command enables the trigger update mechanism on all IPv6 configured interfaces:

enable ripng triggerupdate


This command was first available in ExtremeXOS 11.2.
