}
Use the set form of this command to delay MED updates to all peers in the peer group. Enter this command if the device is already configured to assign the MED that is based on 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 if 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.
