I have a bit of a problem with convergence times and i was wondering if anyone can help.
i have an eigrp network of 5 nodes, one node (lets call it X) has a destination to network on other end of the network , one link is preferred, the other link is a feasible successor
here is #sh ip eigrp topology
P 192.168.50.48/30, 1 successors, FD is 33330
via 10.100.100.58 (33330/30770), GigabitEthernet0/20
via 10.100.100.62 (35840/33280), GigabitEthernet0/22
when i shut down gi 0/20 gracefully using #shutdown command, the video stream i am running pretty much cuts over instantly , i just get a glitch for an instant.
so this is brillant and i like but...
when i pull out the ethernet cable gi 0/20 out , ie non gracefully , the video takes 4-5 secs to come back.
i am using eigrp settings, hello = 1 , holdtime = 3
does anyone know why a graceful shutdown is superior to pulling the cable out , and is there anyway i can improve my convergence ?
