Configuring SBFD

Seamless Bidirectional Forwarding Detection (SBFD) can be configured to implement rapid link fault detection.

Usage Scenario

BFD techniques are mature. However, when a large number of BFD sessions are configured to detect links, the negotiation time of the existing BFD state machine is lengthened. In this situation, SBFD can be configured. It is a simplified BFD state machine that shortens the negotiation time and improves network-wide flexibility.

Pre-configuration Tasks

Before configuring SBFD, complete the following tasks:

  • Connect interfaces.

  • Assign an IP address to each Layer 3 interface.
