Spirent TestCenter: How does Graceful Restart works?

  • Spirent TestCenter
  • Graceful Restart
Graceful restart allows a routing device undergoing a restart to inform its adjacent neighbors and peers of its condition. During a graceful restart, the restarting device and its neighbors continue forwarding packets without disrupting network performance. Because neighboring devices assist in the restart (these neighbors are called helper routers), the restarting device can quickly resume full operation without recalculating algorithms.
