The set protocols pim keep-alive-timer command modifies the time out value for a S,G flow from 31-60000 seconds.

Command Syntax

set protocols pim [vrf<vrf-name>] keep-alive-timer <INTERVAL>




vrf <vrf-name>

Optional. Specifies a VRF name. The value is a string. It’s a user-defined VRF set by the command set ip vrf <vrf-name> [description <string>].

keep-alive-timer <INTERVAL>Specifies the time out value for a S,G flow in seconds. Range 31 to 60000.

Usage Guidelines

31 seconds is chosen for a lower bound because some hardware platforms cannot see data flowing in better than 30 second chunks. This command is vrf aware, to configure for a vrf, specify the vrf name.


  • Configure the time out value for a S,G flow.
