bsr-candidate bsm-interval <INTERVAL-VALUE>

no bsr-candidate bsm-interval


Configures the interval in seconds to send periodic RP-Set messages to all PIM-SM interfaces on a router that operates as the BSR in a domain. This setting must be smaller than the rp-candidate hold-time settings (range of 30 to 255; default 150) configured in the RPs operating in the domain.

The no form of this command removes the currently configured value and sets it to the default of 60 seconds.
