EIGRP Hello and Hold-time intervals ?

Unanswered Question
Dec 10th, 2009

Hi all,

I am studing for my BSCI test and wonder what command gives me the EIGRP Hello and Hold-time intervals ? I know the theory (5/15 seconds for Lan and P2P or 60/180 seconds for NBMA slower than T1) but I just cannot find any command giving me the current values.

This values are easily available in OSPF and BGP so I cannot understand they are so hidden in EIGRP ...

Thanks in advance.


I have this problem too.

show ip eigrp interfaces detail gives you the Hello Timer value:

R1#sh ip eigrp interfaces detail

IP-EIGRP interfaces for process 1

                        Xmit Queue   Mean   Pacing Time   Multicast    Pending

Interface        Peers  Un/Reliable  SRTT   Un/Reliable   Flow Timer   Routes

Et1/1              0        0/0         0       0/1            0           0

  Hello interval is 5 sec

  Next xmit serial

  Un/reliable mcasts: 0/0  Un/reliable ucasts: 0/0

  Mcast exceptions: 0  CR packets: 0  ACKs suppressed: 0

  Retransmissions sent: 0  Out-of-sequence rcvd: 0

  Authentication mode is not set

Hi Stephen,

indeed, you are very right, the value is displayed using  the "details" keyword.

Thanks do much for your answer.

Best regards,
