Internet is playing very important role nowadays for satisfying people with various services related to different areas. It is a very versatile facility which can help the user in completing many tasks easily and conveniently with few clicks, the slow convergence of routing protocols after a link or node fail in the network becomes a growing problem. Because of faulty interfaces in network, transient failure occurs unfortunately. In this paper, surveys of the different IP recovery schemes are described. With these approaches, when no more than one link failure notification is suppressed, a packet is guaranteed to be forwarded along a loop-free path to its destination if such a path exists.
