Use this command to set the time of the OSPF link-state refresh timer.

A link-state refresh is a mechanism for validating a link-state acknowledgment (LSA) and resetting its age before it reaches the maximum age. When the link-state refresh timer expires, the router floods a new link-state update to all its neighbors who reset the age of the LSA.

Use the set form of this command to set the time of the refresh timer.

Use the delete form of this command to restore the default time, which 1800 seconds, of the refresh timer.

Use the show form of this command to display the current time of the refresh timer.
