How Is the Timeout Interval of VRRP Packets Set?

How Is the Timeout Interval of VRRP Packets Set?

If the VRRP backup does not receive VRRP packets from the VRRP master within the timeout interval, the VRRP backup considers that the VRRP master does not work properly. Then the VRRP backup becomes the master.

The timeout interval of VRRP packets cannot be configured directly on a CE series switch. The calculation formula is as follows:

(3*Advertisement_Interval) + Skew_time


Advertisement_Interval specifies the interval for sending VRRP packets. The default value is 1s.

The value of Skew_Time is as follows:

Skew_Time = (256 - Priority)/256

The value of Skew_Time ranges from 0 to 1.

You can run the vrrp vrid timer advertise command to change the interval for sending VRRP packets to adjust the timeout interval of VRRP packets.

After the configuration is complete, run the display vrrp verbose command. The TimerConfig field displays the configured interval for sending VRRP packets.
