Synopsis

  • This module provides declarative management of BFD protocol params on Mellanox ONYX network devices.

Parameters

Parameter Choices/Defaults Comments

integer
Minimum desired receive rate, should be between 50 and 6000.
interval_multiplier
integer
Desired detection multiplier, should be between 3 and 50.
interval_transmit_rate
integer
Minimum desired transmit rate, should be between 50 and 60000.
iproute_mask_length
integer
Configures the mask length of the ip route network prefix, e.g 24.
iproute_network_prefix
string
Configures the ip route network prefix, e.g 1.1.1.1.
iproute_next_hop
string
Configures the ip route next hop, e.g 2.2.2.2.
shutdown
boolean
    Choices:
  • no
  • yes

Key Returned Description
commands
list
always
The list of configuration mode commands to send to the device.

Sample:
['ip bfd shutdown', 'no ip bfd shutdown', 'ip bfd shutdown vrf <vrf_name>', 'no ip bfd shutdown vrf <vrf_name>', 'ip bfd vrf <vrf_name> interval min-rx <min_rx> multiplier <multiplier> transmit-rate <transmit_rate> force', 'ip bfd interval min-rx <min_rx> multiplier <multiplier> transmit-rate <transmit_rate> force', 'ip route vrf <vrf_name> <network_prefix>/<mask_length> <next_hop> bfd', 'ip route <network_prefix>/<mask_length> <next_hop> bfd']
