Hi All,

How long it will take when the router transits from Master to backup when it hears the advertisement packet with different advertisement interval and higher priority.

In RFC 5798 haven't specified timers here,

Please correct me If I am wrong.

(725) -* If the Priority in the ADVERTISEMENT is greater
            than the local Priority,
            (730) -* or
            (735) -* If the Priority in the ADVERTISEMENT is equal to
            the local Priority and the primary IPvX Address of the
            sender is greater than the local primary IPvX Address, then:

               (740) -@ Cancel Adver_Timer
               (745) -@ Set Master_Adver_Interval to Adver Interval
               contained in the ADVERTISEMENT
               (750) -@ Recompute the Skew_Time
               (755) @ Recompute the Master_Down_Interval
               (760) @ Set Master_Down_Timer to Master_Down_Interval
               (765) @ Transition to the {Backup} state
