Use this command to configure a hello holdtime, the amount of time the system waits for a PIM Hello message before dropping a neighbor. The holdtime cannot be less than the current hello-interval. When the hello-interval is updated, the hello-holdtime is reviewed. If the hello-holdtime either is not configured or is configured but less than the current hello-interval, it is set to 3.5 times the hello-interval. Otherwise, the current holdtime remains unchanged.

Use the set form of this command to specify the hello holdtime.

Use the delete form of this command to restore the hello holdtime to its default holdtime.

Use the show form of this command to display the hello holdtime configuration.
