what is mean by hold time in routing protocols? 


Holddown mechanisms to prevent incorrect routing information from being propagated,Take for example of RIP with hold down timer. Setting the hold-down timer to h seconds means enforces that a routing update which leads to an increase of the cost (hop count) in a routing table entry, will be delayed by h seconds. Setting hold-down timer to 0 means that the RIP process accepts any new modifications to the route immediately.

Hope to Help !!
