EIGRP - Insignificant Overhead.

Im re-reading chapters and trying a different way of viewing what im reading besides "Black and White text"

Something jumped out at me:

"To optimize convergence, an engineer could simply reduce the Hello and Hold Timers, accepting insignificant additional overhead, in return for shorter convergence times. These settings can be made per interface/subinterface, and per EIGRP process."

What would be considered "insignificant"?
In order to succeed, your desire for success should be greater than your fear of failure.

    What size are EIGRP hello packets? How many are usually sent a second/period of time? Multiply that by however much you decrease the timers by and you have your answer.
    An expert is a man who has made all the mistakes which can be made.
