Configuring BFD on Nexus NX-OS

Mind Safe

BDF is listed in the CCIE Data Center Lab Blueprint as, « 1.2.c – Implement BFD for dynamic routing protocols”. In this blog post, I’ll be explaining BFD and going over it’s relevance for dynamic routing protocols. Without further ado.

Bidirectional Forwarding Detection (BFD) is a protocol designed to quickly detect failures in the forwarding-path, and notify the configured protocols (OSPF, EIGRP, BGP, HSRP, etc) immediately, before they’ve even had an opportunity to be aware of the failure themselves. This results in expedited, sub-second detection of failed forwarding-paths, leading to quicker convergence.

BFD on NX-OS runs in Asynchronous mode, where a BFD neighbor relationship session is formed between two adjacent devices, and they exchange control packets to monitor the session. The configurable parameters used in the session include:

Desired minimum transmit interval
– The Hello interval (Default of 50 milliseconds)
Required minimum transmit interval
– The minimum interval that the device…
