Question
Hellow,

1)what is the meaning of delay in cisco router config
2)delay setting on interface, what does it mean?
3)Delay 10000000  .... Will it add latency by 10Sec… for the traffic going / coming on that interface???

Answer
Its an artificial delay that you add. Software, in this case, router IOS do not add any delay to packets. But in case you want to add some delay you use this command to induce artificial delay to the packets sent. YOu can set this value between 8 to 50milisec.

I am sure that you are not talking about Voice delay here, Srini.
