Description (partial)


One of the links takes approx 80-90 seconds to transition from STANDBY to ACTIVE when "mlacp switchover bundle-etherx" is performed.

Only when we cli command "mlacp switchover bundle-etherx"

Other methods of failover scenarios mentioned below, there are no issues.
1. Link Failure:
The member can be removed from the bundle using any of the following events:
Fiber pull at either end of the POA-DHD link. (NB: This is the most representative way of testing this scenario.)
Shut down the POA-DHD link on the DHD.
Shut down the POA-DHD link on the POA.
Remove the bundle membership configuration on either end of the POA-DHD link.

2. Device Failure:
This  represents a meltdown of the router carrying the traffic; total loss of  the node. The only valid test trigger for this event is a hard reset  (power down) of the device, even a router reload is not truly  representative as the device will tend to go down in a series of  indeterminate stages.
