Command:

output-delay


Mode:

Router(config-router)#


Syntax:

output-delay delay
no output-delay [delay]

 

Syntax Description:

delay Delay (in milliseconds) between packets in a multiple-packet RIP update. The range is from 8 to 50 milliseconds. The default is no delay.

 

Command Description:

To change the interpacket delay for Routing Information Protocol (RIP) updates sent, use the output-delay command in router configuration mode. To remove the delay, use the no form of this command.

The default is 0 milliseconds.

Consider using this command if you have a high-end router sending at high speed to a low-speed router that might not be able to receive at the high speed. Configuring this command will help prevent the routing table from losing information.


Example:

The following example sets the interpacket delay to 10 milliseconds:

Router(config-router)# output-delay 10
