Using BFD

For BFD to function fully, the BFD session status must be consumed by other interested parties. Currently this can be BGP, OSPF, or OSPF6.


BFD can be enabled for specific BGP neighbors using the BFD options for BGP neighbors.


BFD can be enabled for OSPF and OSPF6 by using the appropriate OSPF interface BFD option or OSPF6 interface BFD option.
