Hello Experts,

Our ISP are suggesting that we change our BGP timers to holdtime of 20 and keepalive to 5 seconds. We will probably go ahead with it, however can someone please tell me what are the pitfalls?

I know that if our IGP is unable then BGP my reset often. However, I was wondering if there are anything else I should look out for?
