F Commands


This chapter describes the Cisco NX-OS Multiprotocol Label Switching commands that begin with F.

fast-reroute (TE interface configuration mode)

To enable an Multiprotocol Label Switching (MPLS) traffic engineering (TE) tunnel to request a backup tunnel to protect against a link or node failure, use the fast-reroute command. To restore the system to its default condition, use the no form of this command.

fast-reroute [bw-protect] [node-protect]

no fast-reroute

Syntax Description

bw-protect

(Optional) Sets the bandwidth protection desired bit so that backup bandwidth protection is requested at each hop that the label switched path (LSP) traverses.

node-proteect

(Optional) Sets the node protection desired bit so that node protection is requested at each hop the LSP traverses.


Defaults

None

Command Modes
