I have a pair of 6509's with Sup-720's and ACE modules. IOS is SXI3, ACE software is 3.0.

When I do a manual ACE failover from one chassis to another I see this behaviour (from debug ip routing)

Jan 14 09:13:34.211 CET: RT(test-context): add via, static metric [77/0]

My question is this - why two seconds to install the static route on the second switch? The VIP is there pretty much instantly but the static route is lagging behind by two seconds.

Is there any way to speed up the process or is it hardwired? (I've tried other versions of IOS and other versions of ACE code - no difference)
