What does the "no atm ilmi-keepalive" command do?
When you configure VC management, you enable the router to detect VC connections and disconnections automatically. This notifies protocols to reroute packets immediately, preventing protocols from waiting for unpredictable and relatively long timeout periods.

You may use Integrated Local Management Interface (ILMI) or operation, administration, and maintenance (OAM) or both for managing your PVCs, and OAM for managing your SVCs. For PVCs, you must decide which method is reliable in your particular network.

Once you have configured an ILMI PVC, you can optionally enable/disable the ILMI keepalive function by using atm ilmi-keepalive or no atm ilmi-keepalive command. Default if no atm ilmi-keepalive.
