To set the estimated time needed to send an OSPF LSA update packet, use the set protocols ospf4 area interface vif address transmit-delay command in L2/L3 configuration mode. OSPF increments the LSA age by the transmit delay amount before transmitting the LSA update.

Command Syntax

set protocols ospf4 vrf vrf-name area area-id interface interface-name vif vif-name address ip-address transmit-delay time



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>].

Note that: The configuration is in the default VRF if not explicitly bound to any VRF.

area-idOSPF area identifier.
interface-nameInterface name.
vif-nameVirtual interface name.
ip-addressVirtual interface IP address used for OSPF.
timeOSPF transmit delay in seconds. The range is 1-3600.


This example sets the OSPF transmist delay to 2 seconds.
