You can configure a delay for a tracked object or an object track list that delays when the object or list triggers a stage
change. The tracked object or track list starts the delay timer when a state change occurs but does not recognize a state
change until the delay timer expires. At that point, Cisco NX-OS checks the object state again and records a state change only if the object or list currently has a changed state. Object
tracking ignores any intermediate state changes before the delay timer expires.
For example, for an interface line-protocol tracked object that is in the up state with a 20 second down delay, the delay
timer starts when the line protocol goes down. The object is not in the down state unless the line protocol is down 20 seconds
You can configure independent up delay and down delay for a tracked object or track list. When you delete the delay, object
tracking deletes both the up and down delay.
You can change the delay at any point. If the object or list is already counting down the delay timer from a triggered event,
the new delay is computed as the following:
If the new configuration value is less than the old configuration value, the timer starts with the new value.
If the new configuration value is more than the old configuration value, the timer is calculated as the new configuration
value minus the current timer countdown minus the old configuration value.
