disable mpls ldp loop-detection

disable mpls ldp loop-detection


Disables LDP loop detection on the switch.

Syntax Description

This command has no arguments or variables.



Usage Guidelines

Loop detection provides a mechanism for finding looping LSPs and for preventing Label Request messages from looping in the presence of non-merge-capable LSRs. The mechanism makes use of Path Vector and Hop Count TLVs carried by Label Request and Label Mapping messages.

When LDP loop detection is disabled, LDP does not attempt to detect routing loops.


The following command globally disables LDP loop detection on the switch:

disable mpls ldp loop-detection


This command was first available in ExtremeXOS 11.6.

Platform Availability
