I currently have an ADVPN setup with BFD enabled on my VPN interfaces and BGP keeps flashing a bit. I adjusted the times to fix the beat issue by setting the following omeglexender controls and left the retries at 3. Maybe I could reduce the times, but wanted to set them high to see if it worked.
Center set bfd-required-min-rx 2000
I talked about the problems (not all departments have the problems) set bfd-desire-min-tx 2000 set bfd-required-min-rx 2000
My question is: do I really need BFD enabled because reg ibgp convergence rate is 5 seconds by default? Does BFD give me any other benefit other than a faster convergence rate? Is anyone else doing BFD over IPSEC links and you had to adjust the times?
