Configuring the SBFD Initiator Functions

The functions of the Seamless Bidirectional Forwarding Detection (SBFD) initiator can be configured, in addition to the reflector functions, which implements rapid SBFD link detection.

Usage Scenario

SBFD is a simplified BFD mechanism and involves the initiator and reflector:
  • Initiator: functions as a detection end to implement the SBFD state machine and detection mechanism and triggers service protection.
  • Reflector: responds to SBDF packets sent by the initiator but does not implement the state machine or mechanism and is not associated with services.


  1. Run system-view

    The system view is displayed.

  2. Run bfd

    BFD is enabled.

  3. Run quit

    Return to the system view.

  4. Run sbfd

    SBFD is enabled.

  5. Configure the mapping between the IP address and discriminator of an SBFD reflector.

  6. Run commit

    The configuration is committed.
