adjust retransmit interval


area [area-id] virtual link [router-id] retransmit-interval [1 - 1800]


In the ospf3 context, used on both ABRs in a virtual link to change the number of seconds between LSA retransmissions on the virtual link.

The retransmit-interval setting must be the same on both ABRs on a given virtual link. This value is also used when retransmitting database description and link-state request packets.



Specifies the OSPFv3 area in which both ABRs in a given virtual link operate. In this use, the area ID is sometimes termed "transit area ID."

This value must be the same for both ABRs in the virtual link. If the area does not exist, this command creates it.


For an ABR in a given virtual link, this is the router ID (in decimal or 32-bit dotted decimal format) used to create the link on that ABR.

This value is the router ID of the opposite router in the virtual link.

1 - 1800

Specifies the retransmit interval.

The no version of the command restores the default value.

Default: 5 seconds

Example input

switch(config)# router ospf3 area 1 virtual-link retransmit-interval
