triggered update

triggered update: A type of Routing Information Protocol (RIP) announcement that occurs when network topology changes. With triggered updates, the update announcing network topology changes is sent almost immediately rather than waiting for the next periodic announcement. Triggered updates improve the convergence time (the time it takes for a router to update its routing tables) of RIP internetworks, but at the cost of additional broadcast traffic while the triggered updates are propagated.

This message is used when the client detects a potential conflict because the IP address is found to be already in use on the network. The DHCP decline message name is DHCPDECLINE.
