EIGRP Hello / Hold timers


To configure EIGRP :
router eigrp 100
network 192.168.1.0
redistribute connected
redistribute static

To adjust the timers, you should be at the interface level of the switch/router :

S3750(config-if)#ip hold-time eigrp 100 300
S3750(config-if)#ip hello-interval eigrp 100 100

The HOLD Timer is 3 x Hello Interval.
Hello is default 5 sec and Hold timer 3 x 5 = 15 sec.
