Synopsis

  • Manages Bidirectional Forwarding Detection (BFD) global-level configuration.

Note

This module has a corresponding action plugin.

Parameters

Parameter

Comments

echo_interface

string

Loopback interface used for echo frames.

Valid values are loopback interface name or ‘deleted’.

Not supported on N5K/N6K

echo_rx_interval

integer

BFD Echo receive interval in milliseconds.

fabricpath_interval

dictionary

BFD fabricpath interval timer values.

Value must be a dict defining values for keys (tx, min_rx, and multiplier).

fabricpath_slow_timer

integer

BFD fabricpath slow rate timer in milliseconds.

fabricpath_vlan

integer

BFD fabricpath control vlan.

interval

dictionary

BFD interval timer values.

Value must be a dict defining values for keys (tx, min_rx, and multiplier)

ipv4_echo_rx_interval

integer

BFD IPv4 session echo receive interval in milliseconds.

ipv4_interval

dictionary

BFD IPv4 interval timer values.

Value must be a dict defining values for keys (tx, min_rx, and multiplier).

ipv4_slow_timer

integer

BFD IPv4 slow rate timer in milliseconds.

ipv6_echo_rx_interval

integer

BFD IPv6 session echo receive interval in milliseconds.

ipv6_interval

dictionary

BFD IPv6 interval timer values.

Value must be a dict defining values for keys (tx, min_rx, and multiplier).

ipv6_slow_timer

integer

BFD IPv6 slow rate timer in milliseconds.

slow_timer

integer

BFD slow rate timer in milliseconds.

startup_timer

integer

BFD delayed startup timer in seconds.

Not supported on N5K/N6K/N7K

Notes

Note

  • Tested against NXOSv 9.2(2)

  • Unsupported for Cisco MDS

  • BFD global will automatically enable ‘feature bfd’ if it is disabled.

  • BFD global does not have a ‘state’ parameter. All of the BFD commands are unique and are defined if ‘feature bfd’ is enabled.

  • For information on using CLI and NX-API see the :ref:`NXOS Platform Options guide <nxos_platform_options>`
