Manipulating EIGRP Hello and Hold Timers

ImageLesson 4: EIGRP Timers

The word convergence defines the overall process by which routers notice internetwork topology changes, communicate about those changes, and change their routing tables to contain only the best currently working routes. EIGRP converges very quickly, even with all default settings.

One of the slower components of the EIGRP convergence process relates to the timers that EIGRP neighbors use to recognize that a neighborship has failed.
