FHRP - HSRP BDF Peering
The FHRP - Hot Standby Router Protocol (HSRP) Bidirectional Forwarding Detection (BFD) Peering feature introduces BFD in the HSRP group member health monitoring system. Previously, HSRP group member monitoring relied exclusively on HSRP multicast messages, which are relatively large and consume CPU memory to produce and check. In architectures where a single interface hosts a large number of groups, there is a need for a lighter protocol. BFD addresses this issue and offers sub-second health monitoring at a relatively low CPU impact.
Configuration information is included in the "Configuring HSRP" module of theCisco IOS IP Application Services Configuration Guide, Release 12.4T, at the following URL:
