Re: setting the hold down timer in vrrp on backup routers

You won't find much documentation within Cisco for VRRP for obvious reasons, thus I'm going to refer you to a third party book:

http://books.google.com/books?id=DRIryrLoxKkC&pg=PA535&lpg=PA535&dq=vrrp+hold+down+timer&source=web&ots=SGHqFrQTR7&sig=JGYecBDcke4-RUI1AavR82wawJA&hl=en&sa=X&oi=book_result&resnum=2&ct=result

In short, the VRRP hold down timer is not configurable and it equals 3 times to advertisement interval.

Re: setting the hold down timer in vrrp on backup routers

For example, if i configure the vrrp advertisement interval to be 2 sec, it will set the master-down timer to 6 seconds. Is it correct?

Yes.

Hi Sarah,

It roughly (advertisement int x 3) + 0.6 secs

eg: if the interval is 2 secs, holdtime is approx 6.6 secs .

You can see this in the example here.

Re: setting the hold down timer in vrrp on backup routers

Thanks a lot Edison!

In hsrp, the hello time is 3 sec and hold down timer could be set to any value from 1-255 seconds, but recommended value is 3 times the hello.

In Vrrp, we don't have that choice,rather setting the vrrp advertisements interval also set the master down timer.

For example, if i configure the vrrp advertisement interval to be 2 sec, it will set the master-down timer to 6 seconds. Is it correct?

thanks a lot!
