Description (partial)

R3(config)#do show ip bgp | inc reuse
Dampinfo: penalty 2080, flapped 3 times in 00:07:59, reuse in 00:00:19 <---

*Note the penalty is at 2080 and reuse time is 19 seconds.
*A few seconds later the timer resets to an inexplicable value:

R3(config)#do show ip bgp | inc reuse
Dampinfo: penalty 2056, flapped 3 times in 00:08:16, reuse in 00:10:54 <--- resets to an unexpected value.

It appears that the feature is working correctly, based on a manual count down. However, the parser output makes determining the actual reuse time from the console output impossible.

The following parameters were used:

R3(config)#do sho ip bgp dampening parameters
 dampening 15 750 2000 30
  Half-life time      : 15 mins       Decay Time       : 520 secs
  Max suppress penalty:  3000         Max suppress time: 30 mins
  Suppress penalty    :  2000         Reuse penalty    : 750
