How to Decrease Failover Time

Hi Guys!

Is there any way on how to decrease the delay time of a failover line when the other line turns down. Im using EIGRP for load balance and auto-failover.

Thanks!!!

Hi Chester,

With EIGRP, the failover is very fast, measured in milliseconds, especially when you have a feasible successor route in the topology table (like your situation).

Did you measure the failover time you have now ? What failover time would you like to achieve?

Re: How to Decrease Failover Time

The time the failover will come is may be around 6seconds. Can you give me a nice way on how to measure it? Im just trying to ping the LAN interface then i will manually shut the other WAN interface from the remote site. H.O site and Remote site are both having to MPLS connection terminated on two Serial Interfaces.

Re: How to Decrease Failover Time

Hi Chester,

Can you please post your running-config and the output of the "show ip route" and "show ip eigrp topology" commands?

I would like to see what you have exactly there.

Thanks:

Istvan
