Hello Justin

Route dampening is a BGP feature that is designed to minimize the propagation of flapping routes across a BGP network. It is part of the BGP Next Hop Address Tracking feature which is used to reduce the BGP convergence time by monitoring BGP next hop address changes in the routing table. You can find details about how dampening works with this feature at the following lesson:

For more details about the dampening feature itself, take a look at the following Cisco documentation:
