OSPF SPF Scheduling and Throttling

This topic is to discuss the following lesson:

Hello Rene,
I have a question. I see that after the 2xspfhold and then second spf start there is a gap of 5 seconds(35 to 40). Could you please explain as to why is that so?

Hi Ravi,

There is no particular reason, the time from 35 to 40 seconds ( 5 seconds in total) is a period of inactivity, I made up that time.
