On S series switches, what are the methods of defining the values of Hold and Keepalive timers on BGP peers

For S series switches that support BGP, the value of Hold and Keepalive timers can be set with the peer timer command. This command specifies the hold time when the BGP connection is interrupted and the interval for sending Keepalive messages. Large values of the two timers reduce the impact of link flapping, and small values enable the device to detect link changes. After the peer relationship is set up, the values of the two timers are negotiated by both peers, and the smaller ones are used.
