Configuring an LACP Timeout

In a dynamic or keep-alive LAG, a port timeout can be configured as short (3 seconds) or long (120 seconds). After you configure the port timeout, the port remains in that timeout mode even it is up or down.

All the ports in a LAG must have the same timeout mode. This requirement is checked when the LAG is enabled on the ports.

Complete the following steps to configure a port for a short LACP timeout

  1. In global configuration mode, use the lag blue dynamic id 1 command to enter the LAG mode.
    device(config)# lag blue dynamic id 1
  2. Enter the lacp-timeout short command to deploy or undeploy the LAG blue.
    device(config-lag-blue)# lacp-timeout short

The following example configures a port for a short LACP timeout.

device(config)# lag blue dynamic id 1
device(config-lag-blue)# lacp-timeout short
LAG blue un-deployed successfully!
LAG blue deployed successfully!
device(config-lag-blue)#
