dialer hold-queue




dialer hold-queue packets timeout seconds

no dialer hold-queue packets


Syntax Description:


Number of packets, in the range 1 to 100 packets, to hold in the queue. This argument is optional with the no form of the command.

timeout seconds

Amount of time in seconds to queue the packets.

Command Description:

To allow interesting outgoing packets to be queued until a modem connection is established, use the dialer hold-queue interface configuration command. To disable the hold queue, use the no form of this command.

A dialer hold queue can be configured on any type of dialer, including in-band synchronous, asynchronous, data terminal ready (DTR), and Integrated Services Digital Network (ISDN) dialers. Rotary groups can also be configured with a dialer hold queue. If a rotary group is configured with a hold queue, all members of the group inherit that queue. No individual member's hold queue can be altered.

If no hold queue is configured, packets are dropped during the time required to establish a connection. Setting packets to 0 using the dialer hold-queue command is equivalent to using the no dialer hold-queue command.


The following command configures a dialer hold queue to hold 10 packets:

Router(config)#dialer hold-queue 10 timeout 60
