what is the pros and cons of no keepalive command in bgp and framerelay?
In bgp ,if i use no keepalive ,the hold time will not expire ,and the bgp session will always be consider alive.And in frame-rekay config,use the no keepalive to disable the LMI keepalive packets,but i don't know in which situation should i use the command?what is the pros and cons of no keepalve command?

If the frame-relay PVC is over a point-to-point t-1, the only way the PVC will go down is if the physical t-1 goes down. In this case the keep-alives and the PVC status are redundant. Think of Frame-relay in this configuration as an HDLC protocol that supports VLAN tagging.
In a (virtual) switched Frame relay network(99% of frame relay implementations), the loss of LMI and keep-alives are undesirable. The only time LMI would be turned of is if the frame relay switches did not support it. In this rare case, a dynamic layer 3 protocol is required to detect PVC failures and provide keep-alives.
