EIGRP Neighbors Flapping quite often

Hi,

We are experiencing EIGRP neighbors flapping quite often. The log shows the below message:

000867: Jan 11 09:59:18.252 AWST: %DUAL-5-NBRCHANGE: IP-EIGRP(0) 10: Neighbor 10.100.1.1 (GigabitEthernet0/1) is down: holding time expired

000868: Jan 11 09:59:25.328 AWST: %DUAL-5-NBRCHANGE: IP-EIGRP(0) 10: Neighbor 10.100.1.2 (GigabitEthernet0/1) is down: holding time expired

000869: Jan 11 09:59:57.400 AWST: %DUAL-5-NBRCHANGE: IP-EIGRP(0) 10: Neighbor 10.100.1.1 (GigabitEthernet0/1) is up: new adjacency

000870: Jan 11 10:00:09.824 AWST: %DUAL-5-NBRCHANGE: IP-EIGRP(0) 10: Neighbor 10.100.1.2 (GigabitEthernet0/1) is up: new adjacency

We have one router at the remote site and two routers at the head office. Eigrp configured between all three routers. I have performed the below troubleshooting and I am not able to find the exact cause for EIGRP flapping.

  •          The logs are not showing that the interface went down, so that’s not the cause for the Neighbor flapping
  •          All the three devices has an hello interval of 5 seconds and the hold time is not less than the hello time. It’s 3 x times the hello time
  •          There are no loss of hello packets. I enabled “debug eigrp packets hello” on the remote office router and on the one head office router  for 20 minutes. Both routers are sending and receiving hello packets
  •          Tried pinging the neighbors with small packets and then with a large packet [1450 byte] from remote router and vice versa. No drops
  •          Also tried pinging the Multicast address 224.0.0.10 from remote router and vice versa. Getting response from the neighbors
  •           Bandwidth has been set properly on all the device interfaces
  •           The  percentage utilization is not high during business hours. But the traffic peaks to approximately  60 to 70% majority of the days between 1.30AM – 3:00AM in the night during backup. But EIGRP is not flapping during that time.

Any help much appreciated.

Thanks

EIGRP Neighbors Flapping quite often

Hello Nachi,

You have almost tried all. The only thing what i can see here is, try changing the physical interfaces once.

Thanks

Vivek
