Configuration field to hold BGP restart timers


restart_timer Optional

Maximum time taken (in seconds) for a BGP session to be established after a restart. This can be used to speed up routing convergence by its peer in case the BGP speaker does not come back up after a restart. If the session is not re-established within this timer, the receiving speaker will delete all the stale routes from that peer.

stale_route_timer Optional

Maximum time (in seconds) before stale routes are removed from the RIB (Routing Information Base) when BGP restarts.

JSON Example
