RE: What Worked - What Didn't

When a BGP router loses power, it takes minutes for the peer on the
other side of the connection to notice something is wrong and reroute
the traffic.
as i do not see this in rfc 1771 or draft-ietf-idr-bgp4-1[23].txt, i
suspect that this is implementation specific.
"The suggested value for the Hold Time is 90 seconds.  The suggested value
for the KeepAlive timer is 30 seconds."

the hello timer != noticing an interface has gone hard down, which i thought
was your original point.
