  • Page 4: Configuring Evi

    Configuring EVI Overview Ethernet Virtual Interconnect (EVI) is a MAC-in-IP technology that provides Layer 2 connectivity between distant Layer 2 network sites across an IP routed network. It is used for connecting geographically dispersed sites of a virtualized large-scale data center that requires Layer 2 adjacency (see Figure EVI enables long-distance virtual machine workload mobility and data mobility, disaster recovery, and business continuity.

  • Page 5: Network Topologies

    Easy management and maintenance—EVI requires deployment only on edge devices and does not • introduce any topology change or configuration within sites or the transport network. Network topologies As shown in Figure 2, an EVI network has one edge device at each site. These sites are connected through virtual links and run the EVI IS-IS protocol to advertise their MAC address entries to each other.

  • Page 6: Terminology

    Figure 3 Multiple EVI networks Site 2 Site 1 EVI 1 VLANs 100-101 Site 3 EVI 2 VLAN 4000 EVI 3 VLANs 50-80 Site 4 Site 5 Terminology Edge device An edge device performs typical Layer 2 learning and forwarding on the site-facing interfaces (internal interfaces) and performs tunneling and routing on the transport-facing interfaces.

  • Page 7: Working Mechanism

    ENDC An EVI neighbor discovery client works with an ENDS to learn neighbor information and triggers EVI link setup between neighbors. EVI IS-IS EVI IS-IS establishes adjacencies and advertises MAC reachability information among edge devices at different sites in an EVI network. EVI IS-IS runs independently of the Layer 3 routing protocols on the transport network and sites.

  • Page 8

    NOTE: The mac-address max-mac-count command and the mac-address mac-learning enable command take effect only on local MAC addresses, which are learned in the data plane. They do not take effect on remote MAC addresses, which are learned in the control plane. Unicast flow For intra-site unicast flows, an edge device performs the typical MAC address table lookup, as shown Figure...

  • Page 9: Selective Flooding

    Figure 5 Layer 2 forwarding between sites Flooding flow An edge device handles flooding by frame type, as follows: Broadcast frame—Floods the frame to all interfaces in the VLAN where the frame has been • received, including internal interfaces and EVI-Link interfaces. Destination-unknown unicast or multicast frame—Floods the frame to all internal interfaces in the •...

  • Page 10: Path Mtu

    Path MTU When encapsulating an Ethernet frame in EVI, the edge device does not modify the Ethernet frame, but it sets the DF bit in the IP header. For an Ethernet transport network, the total size of an EVI protocol packet increases by 46 bytes, and the total size of a data packet increases by 38 bytes.

  • Page 11: Configuring Evi Basic Functions

    Tasks at a glance Remarks Perform this task to ensure correct (Required.) Enabling MAC address learning at the ingress MAC address learning. Configuring EVI basic functions Except for configuring the site ID and enabling the EVI feature, all tasks in this section are required for setting up an EVI network.

  • Page 12: Assigning A Network Id To The Evi Tunnel

    Step Command Remarks By default, no source IP address or source interface is specified for any tunnel. The source interface can be a Layer 3 Ethernet interface, Layer 3 aggregate interface, VLAN interface, or Layer 3 loopback interface. Specify a source IP address source { ipv4-address | or interface for the tunnel.

  • Page 13: Configuring Endp

    An extended VLAN can be specified only on one EVI tunnel. • • To avoid loops, do not assign transport-facing ports to extended VLANs. To avoid data breach, make sure all edge devices in an EVI network maintain the same list of •...

    Step Command Remarks By default, ENDS is disabled. On an ENDS-enabled tunnel interface, you can use the evi neighbor-discovery client evi neighbor-discovery server Enable ENDS. enable command to add one more ENDS, enable and use the evi neighbor-discovery client register-interval command to modify the ENDC registration interval.

  • Page 15: Tuning Evi Is-is Parameters

    Step Command Remarks By default, EVI function is disabled Enable EVI on the interface. evi enable on all interfaces. Tuning EVI IS-IS parameters EVI IS-IS automatically runs on an EVI link immediately after the link is set up. You can tune EVI IS-IS parameters to optimize the protocol performance.

  • Page 16: Optimizing An Evi Is-is Network

    Perform network optimization tasks (see "Optimizing an EVI IS-IS network") except configuring the • EVI IS-IS hello interval and the maximum LSP lifetime. The ID of an automatically created process is the same as the EVI tunnel interface number. Alternatively, you can use the evi-isis command to create an EVI IS-IS process manually. To delete a manually created EVI IS-IS process, you must use the undo evi-isis command.

    Step Command Remarks The default hello interval is 10 seconds. Configure the EVI IS-IS If the edge device is a DED, its hello evi isis timer hello seconds hello interval. interval is one-third of the hello interval set with this command. Configuring the hello multiplier for calculating the adjacency hold time Adjacency hold time sets how long one edge device can retain the adjacency with another edge device.

    Configuring the CSNP packet sending interval This configuration takes effect only on DEDs. The DEDs in an EVI network regularly send CSNP packets to advertise LSP summaries for LSDB synchronization. To configure the CSNP packet sending interval on a DED: Step Command Remarks...

  • Page 19: Specifying A Routing Policy For An Evi Is-is Process

    Configuring the LSP refresh interval An edge device regularly sends LSP updates to remote edge devices for updating MAC reachability information. To change the LSP refresh interval: Step Command Remarks Enter system view. system-view Enter EVI IS-IS process evi-isis process-id view.

    Step Command Remarks Enter system view. system-view Enter EVI IS-IS process view. evi-isis process-id Enable adjacency change By default, adjacency change log-peer-change enable logging. logging is enabled. Configuring SNMP notifications and context for EVI IS-IS To report critical EVI IS-IS events to an NMS, enable SNMP notifications for EVI IS-IS. For EVI IS-IS event notifications to be sent correctly, you must also configure SNMP as described in Network Management and Monitoring Configuration Guide.

    If Graceful Restart is enabled, the adjacency hold time equals the EVI IS-IS hello interval multiplied by the holding-multiplier or the restart interval, whichever is greater. (For a DED, the hello interval is one-third of the hello interval set with the evi isis timer hello command.) To configure Graceful Restart for an EVI IS-IS process: Step Command...

    To enable EVI flooding for all destination-unknown frames: Step Command Remarks Enter system view. system-view Enter EVI tunnel interface interface tunnel number view. [ mode evi ] Enable EVI flooding. evi flooding enable By default, EVI flooding is disabled. Enabling selective flooding for a MAC address CAUTION: Do not configure selective flooding for a unicast MAC address that might be learned at an edge device's data plane.
