Usage Guidelines

You must enable LACP before using this command.

You can configure the LACP rate fast feature on the LACP ports of a Cisco Nexus 5000 Series switch or a Cisco Nexus 2000 Series Fabric Extender that is connected to a Cisco Nexus 5000 Series switch.

The LACP rate fast feature is used to set the rate (once every second) at which the LACP control packets are sent to an LACP-supported interface. The normal rate at which LACP packets are sent is 30 seconds.
