Usage guidelines

This command enables the tunnel interface to send keepalive packets at the specified interval. If the device receives no response from the peer within the timeout time, the device shuts down the local tunnel interface until it receives a keepalive acknowledgment packet from the peer. The timeout time is the result of multiplying the keepalive interval by the keepalive number.

The device always acknowledges the keepalive packets it receives whether or not GRE keepalive is enabled.

GRE over IPv6 tunnel interfaces do not support this command.


# Enable GRE keepalive, set the keepalive interval to 20 seconds, and set the keepalive number to 5.
