interfaces bridge <brx> aging

show interfaces bridge brx aging

MAC addresses are aged out of the forwarding database after 300 seconds (5 minutes).

brx
Bridge group ID.
aging { age | 0 }
Specifies the length of time, in seconds, that a MAC address is to be kept before being aged out. The range is 10 through 1,000,000. The default value is 300 seconds. Specifiying an aging value of 0 means that a MAC address is kept forever.

Configuration mode


interfaces {
    bridge brx {
        aging age
