HI, I have been reading this and so far the difference between these two is not clear. Anyone can explain a distinct characteristic between "Invalidation timers" vs "Holddown timers".

This is the difference I have found but it does not make sense to me:

Invalidation Timers=No routes update for a duration.

Holddown Timers=Do not update for a duration.

It looks very similar to me...
