protocols bgp <asn> neighbor <id> med-out igp delay- updates

Delays the update of the multi-exit Discriminator (MED) to a peer.

delete protocols bgp asn neighbor id med-out igp delay-updates
asn
Mandatory if an ASN other than the parent ASN is to be sent to the neighbor. The number for the AS in which this router resides. The number ranges from 1 through 4294967295.

Configuration mode


protocols {
    bgp asn {
        neighbor id {
            med-out igp delay-updates
        }
    }
}

Use the set form of this command to delay the MED updates to a peer. Enter the command only if the device is already configured to assign the MED based on the changes in the IGP metric. The time delay is based on the default timer that is configured in protocols bgp <asn> parameters med-out-delay <minutes>.

Note: The device delays the MED updates when the IGP metric changes and the new metric is greater than the old IGP metric.

Use the delete form of this command to update the MED value as soon as the IGP metric changes.
