Specifies the time delay (in seconds) between the transmission of BPDUs from this STPD when it is the root bridge.
|stpd_name||Specifies an STPD name on the switch.|
|seconds||Specifies the hello time in seconds. The default is 2 seconds, and the range is 1 to 10 seconds.|
The default hello time is 2 seconds.
If your STPD has the same name as another component, for example a VLAN, we recommend that you specify the identifying keyword as well as the name. If your STPD has a name unique only to that STPD, the keyword stpd is optional.
In an MSTP environment, configure the hello timer only on the CIST, not on the MSTIs.
You should not configure any STP parameters unless you have considerable knowledge and experience with STP. The default STP parameters are adequate for most networks.
The range for the seconds parameter is 1 through 10 seconds.
The following command sets the time delay from STPD1 to 10 seconds:
configure stpd stpd1 hellotime 10
This command was first available in ExtremeXOS 10.1.
This command is available on ExtremeSwitching 5320, 5420, 5520, and 5720 series switches.
