Issue Description
Why Can BGP Not Immediately Attempt to Establish Connections After the Peer Is Configured?
Solution
To prevent the Border Gateway Protocol (BGP) from frequently tearing down the neighbor relationship for renegotiation, the device waits for a proper period before establishing connections to ensure that related configurations are complete. The recommended period in RFC4271 is 120 seconds. The implementation in AR series routers is 32 seconds.
