What is the net effect of having

no eigrp log-neighbor-changes

under the eigrp configuration?

Correct Answer by thisisshanky about 14 years 2 days ago

When "eigrp log-neighbor-changes" is enabled, SYSLOG messages pop up indicating state change information of neighbors. When you use no form of the command, you just disable it.

Thats good to know. There is no operational impact just an informational impact.

No, there's no operational impact, but please leave it on. :-) As a former TAC and Escalation engineer, I can't tell you the number of times people have called in, and we had to "wait until the next failure" to collect information we could've gotten off of this type of generic logging. Unfortunately, this sort of logging isn't done in the EIGRP event log (something to file and bug the EIGRP guys about, I suppose), so....
