fabricpath timers

To configure FabricPath timers, use the fabricpath timers command. To remove the FabricPath timers, use the no form of this command.

fabricpath timers { allocate-delay sec | linkup-delay sec | transition-delay sec }

no fabricpath timers { allocate-delay | linkup-delay | transition-delay }

Syntax Description

allocate-delay

sec
Timer value in seconds. The range is from 1 to 1200 seconds.
linkup-delay

Examples

This example shows how to configure the delay for a new switch ID to be propagated throughout the network before that value becomes available and permanent:

switch# configure terminal
switch(config)# fabricpath timers allocate-delay 600
switch(config)#
 

This example shows how to configure the link bringup delay to detect conflicts in the switch ID. If the system finds a conflict, the system takes some time to resolve the conflict and to bring FabricPath to an operational state:

switch# configure terminal
switch(config)# fabricpath timers linkup-delay 600
switch(config)#
 

This example shows how to configure the delay for propagating a transitioned value in the network; during this period, all old and new switch ID values exist in the network. This transition lasts only until the link comes up and the system checks to see if the network has two identical switch IDs.

switch# configure terminal
switch(config)# fabricpath timers transition-delay 600
switch(config)#
