    In an ospf network do routers in the same area need to have the same
    spf timers setting? Or can a set of routers that need quicker
    convergence have their timer spf set independent of the rest of the
    area?

    HelloInterval
    The length of time, in seconds, between the
    Hello Packets that the router sends on the
    interface. This value is advertised in the
    router's Hello Packets. It must be the same
    for all routers attached to a common network.

    RouterDeadInterval
    After ceasing to hear a router's Hello Packets,
    the number of seconds before its neighbors
    declare the router down. This is also
    advertised in the router's Hello Packets in
    their RouterDeadInterval field. This should
    be some multiple of the HelloInterval (say 4).
    This value again must be the same for all
    routers attached to a common network.
