flash-update-threshold ...a bit of confusion

http://www.cisco.com/en/US/docs/ios/12_0/np1/command/reference/1rrip.html#wp1022291

 


This command suppresses flash updates when the arrival of a regularly scheduled update matches the number of seconds that is configured with the seconds argument. The range of seconds that can be configure is from 0 to 30 seconds. If the number of seconds matches the number of seconds or is less than the number seconds that is configured with the seconds argument, the flash update is suppressed. If the numbers seconds until the flash update arrives exceeds the number of seconds that is configured with the seconds argument, the flash update is not suppressed. The regular scheduled interval for flash updates and the configuration of the suppression of flash updates can be verified with the show ip protocol command.

shouldn't this say " when the sending  of a regularly scheduled update"

 

 

why would you want to suppress a flash update when the arrival of an update matches the number of seconds that is configureed in this command....
 lets say we take the arrival logic and the local RIP database changes...makes no sense to suppress a flash update because a neighbor is about  to send the local router an update...

 

or am i reading this wrong?

corrections to me understanding appreciated...

 

thankyou
