protocols bgp <asn> parameters graceful-restart <action>

Enables or disables graceful restart of the BGP process.

set protocols bgp asn parameters graceful-restart { graceful-reset | restart-time seconds | stalepath-time seconds }
delete protocols bgp asn parameters graceful-restart [ graceful-reset | restart-time seconds | stalepath-time seconds ]
show protocols bgp asn parameters graceful-restart

Paths for restarting peers are retained for at most 360 seconds.

asn
The number of the AS in which this router resides. The numbers range from 1 through 4294967294. The subrange 64512 through 65534 is reserved for private AS.
graceful-reset
Enables graceful reset capability.
restart-time seconds
Enables maximum time needed for neighbor to restart. The default is 360 seconds.
stalepath-time seconds
Sets the maximum interval, in seconds, to retain stale paths for a restarting peer. If this interval is exceeded, all stale paths are removed.

The number range from 1 through 3600. The default is 360.

The default value for this attribute is optimal for most deployments, and changing this value can have negative effects on network behavior. We recommend that only experienced network operators change this value.
