  3. hmmm…at first I thought this question owned me, but I said “Non-Stop Forwarding (NSF)” … after googling for OSPF graceful restart, I found out that it appears to be the same thing so I guess I was right? 🙂

    • I’m with you Joe, my first instinct was NSF, I wonder if they would give credit for both.
