Could someone point me out to some documentation or explain to me what exactly is regarded as a "link-flap" for error-disable detection ?

Is this one up/down in one second ? three up/downs in 2 seconds ? four consequetive up/down ?

Hey Geert,

The interface is put into the errdisabled state if it flaps more than five times in 10 seconds.

best regards

It is often so difficult to find the correct document on the web site. I searched for over an hour for this document. tkx.
