    Layer 1. The Cisco Nexus 7000 Series device periodically transmits UDLD frames to neighbor devices on LAN ports with UDLD enabled. If the frames are echoed back within a specific time frame and they lack a specific acknowledgment (echo), the link is flagged as unidirectional and the LAN port is shut down.

  • Page 130: C H A P T E R 5 Configuring Bidirectional Forwarding Detection

    • Asynchronous Mode Cisco NX-OS supports the BFD asynchronous mode, which sends BFD control packets between two adjacent devices to activate and maintain BFD neighbor sessions between the devices. You configure BFD on both devices (or BFD neighbors). Once BFD has been enabled on the interfaces and on the appropriate protocols, Cisco NX-OS creates a BFD session, negotiates BFD session parameters, and begins to send BFD control packets to each BFD neighbor at the negotiated interval.

  • Page 131: Distributed Operation

    Router B Distributed Operation Cisco NX-OS can distribute the BFD operation to compatible modules that support BFD. This process offloads the CPU load for BFD packet processing to the individual modules that connect to the BFD neighbors. All BFD session traffic occurs on the module CPU. The module informs the supervisor when a BFD failure is detected.

  • Page 132: Security

    S e n d d o c u m e n t c o m m e n t s t o n e x u s 7 k - d o c f e e d b a c k @ c i s c o . c o m Security Cisco NX-OS uses the packet Time to Live (TTL) value to verify that the BFD packets came from an adjacent BFD peer. For all asynchronous and echo request packets, the BFD neighbor sets the TTL value to 255 and the local BFD process verifies the TTL value as 255 before processing the incoming packet.

  • Page 133: Guidelines And Limitations

    If you enable BFD at the router level (for example, from OSPF), any BFD sessions over a N7K-F132XL-15 linecard will not come-up. See the Cisco Nexus 7000 Series NX-OS Unicast Routing Configuration Guide, Release 5.x for information about OSPF and other routing protocols.

    • HSRP for IPv4 is supported with BFD. HSRP for IPv6 is not supported with BFD. BFD packets generated by supported the Cisco NX-OS device linecards are sent with COS 6/DSCP • CS6. The DSCP/COS values for BFD packets are not user configurable.

  • Page 247: Manually Configuring The Vpc Peer Device Role

    Manually Configuring the vPC Peer Device Role By default, the Cisco NX-OS software elects a primary and secondary vPC peer device after you configure the vPC domain and both sides of the vPC peer link. However, you may want to elect a specific vPC peer device as the primary device for the vPC.

  • Page 248: Configuring The Tracking Feature On A Single-module Vpc

    Configuring the Tracking Feature on a Single-Module vPC Beginning with Cisco NX-OS Release 4.2, if you must configure all the vPC peer links and core-facing interfaces on a single module, you should configure a track object and a track list that is associated with the Layer 3 link to the core and on all the links on the vPC peer link on both primary vPC peer devices.

  • Page 250: Configuring For Recovery After An Outage

    In the event of an outage, vPC waits for peer adjacency to form on a switch reload. This situation can result in an unacceptably long service disruption. You can configure the Cisco Nexus 7000 Series device to restore vPC services when its peer fails to come on line.

  • Page 254: Configuring The Suspension Of Orphan Ports

    When a device that is not vPC-capable connects to each peer, the connected ports are known as orphan ports because they are not members of a vPC. Beginning with Cisco NX-OS Release 5.2(1), you can explicitly declare phyiscal interfaces as orphan ports to be suspended (shut down) by the secondary peer when it suspends its vPC ports in response to a peer link or peer-keepalive failure.

    Configuring the vPC Peer Switch You can configure the Cisco Nexus 7000 Series device to make a pair of vPC devices appear as a single STP root in the Layer 2 topology. This section includes the following topics: Configuring a Pure vPC Peer Switch Topology, page 7-53 •...

    You can configure a hybrid vPC and non-vPC peer switch topology by using the spanning-tree pseudo-information command (see the Cisco Nexus 7000 Series NX-OS Layer 2 Switching Command Reference, Release 5.x.) to change the designated bridge ID so that it meets the STP VLAN-based load-balancing criteria and then change the root bridge ID priority to a value that is better than the best bridge priority.
