[j-nsp] Link with errors, how to fast detect ?

Dear James,

You can use LFM to detect errors on the link

Edit protocols oam
ethernet {
    link-fault-management {
        action-profile detect-loss {
            event {
            action {
        interface ge-x/x/x {
            apply-action-profile detect-loss
            pdu-interval 50;
            pdu-threshold 3;

however there's no hold-time on LFM to test the link for say 10sec in order to render it usable again so you might need interface hold down timers for stability

set int ge0/0/0/ hold-time up 10000 down 0
