system eco-friendly-mode—Configure a vEdge Cloud router not to use its CPU minimally or not at all when the router is not processing any packets (available on vEdge Cloud routers). By default, eco-friendly mode is disabled.

Enabling eco-friendly mode is useful when you are upgrading multiple vEdge Cloud routers simultaneously, especially routers that have only one virtual CPU (vCPU). Enabling this mode allows the routers to download the software image files without timing out. (A software image download times out after 60 minutes).
