protocols ospf overflow database external limit <number-of-as-external-lsas> recovery <recovery-time>

Sets the maximum number of AS-External-LSAs that are allowed in the OSPF database.

set protocols ospf [ process pid ] overflow database external limit number-of-as-external-lsas recovery recovery-time
delete protocols ospf [ process pid ] overflow database external limit number-of-as-external-lsas recovery [ recovery-time ]
show protocols ospf [ process pid ] overflow database external limit number-of-as-external-lsas recovery
process pid
Specifies the PID of an IPv4 OSPF process.
number-of-as-external-lsas
The maximum number of AS-External-LSAs that are allowed in the OSPF database. The number ranges from 0 through 2147483647.
recovery-time
The number of seconds that the router waits before exiting the overflow state. The number of seconds ranges from 0 through 65535. A number of 0 indicates that there is no recovery and the router stays in the overflow state until an administrator intervenes.
