When the branch reflector is operating slowly or is using excessive bandwidth, you can stop providing service to its peer clients. You can resume providing service to the peer clients of a paused branch reflector at any time.

When you use the Reject Peers feature, the branch reflector is not deleted from the Branch Reflectors list. The branch reflector cache is preserved.

You can use the Accept Peers feature to resume providing service to the peer clients of a paused branch reflector.
