BASP runs within the Broadcom Advanced Control Suite 2 (BACS2) utility. BASP supports four types of teams for Layer 2 teaming: •...
  • Page 10 Smart Load Balancing™ and Failover Smart Load Balancing™ and Failover is the Broadcom implementation of load balancing based on IP flow. This feature supports balancing IP traffic across multiple adapters (team members) in a bidirectional manner. In this type of team, all adapters in the team have separate MAC addresses. This type of team provides automatic fault detection and dynamic failover to other team member or to a hot standby member.
  • Page 11 SLB (Auto-Fallback Disable) The SLB (Auto-Fallback Disable) type of team is identical to the Smart Load Balancing™ and Failover type of team, with the exception of when the standby member is active, if a primary member comes back on line, the team continues using the standby member, rather than switching back to the primary member.
  • Page 12: Vlan Overview

    LiveLink™ LiveLink™ is a feature of BASP that is available only for the Smart Load Balancing™ type of teaming. The purpose of LiveLink is to detect link loss beyond the switch and to route traffic only through team members that have a live link. This function is accomplished though the teaming software.

    Broadcom Gigabit Ethernet Teaming Services This chapter explains the technology and considerations when working with the network teaming services. Broadcom Gigabit Ethernet Overview The goal of Broadcom teaming services is to provide fault tolerance and link aggregation across a team of two or more adapters. The information in this manual is provided to assist IT professionals during the deployment and troubleshooting of system applications that require network fault tolerance and load balancing.

  • Page 21: Teaming Concepts

    Teaming Concepts Storage devices use RAID technology to group individual hard drives. Switch ports can be grouped together using technologies such as Cisco Gigabit EtherChannel, IEEE 802.3ad Link Aggregation, Bay Network Multilink Trunking, and Extreme Network Load Sharing. Network interfaces on servers can be grouped together into a team of physical ports called a virtual adapter.
  • Page 22 For switch-independent teaming modes, all physical adapters that make up a virtual adapter must use the unique MAC address assigned to them when transmitting data. That is, the frames that are sent by each of the physical adapters in the team must use a unique MAC address to be IEEE compliant. It is important to note that ARP cache entries are not learned from received frames, but only from ARP requests and ARP replies.
  • Page 23 Smart Load Balancing enables both transmit and receive load balancing based on the Layer 3/Layer 4 IP address and TCP/UDP port number. In other words, the load balancing is not done at a byte or frame level but on a TCP/UDP session basis. This methodology is required to maintain in-order delivery of frames that belong to the same socket conversation.
  • Page 24 Transmit traffic through a router will be load balanced as transmit load balancing is based on the source and destination IP address and TCP/UDP port number. Since routers do not alter the source and destination IP address, the load balancing algorithm works as intended. Configuring routers for Hot Standby Routing Protocol (HSRP) does not allow for receive load balancing to occur in the adapter team.
  • Page 25: Software Components

    Generic Trunking Generic Trunking is a switch-assisted teaming mode and requires configuring ports at both ends of the link: server interfaces and switch ports. This is often referred to as Cisco Fast EtherChannel or Gigabit EtherChannel. In addition, generic trunking supports similar implementations by other switch OEMs such as Extreme Networks Load Sharing and Bay Networks or IEEE 802.3ad Link Aggregation static mode.

  • Page 29 4.3.7 Selecting a Team Type The following flow chart provides the decision flow when planning for Layer 2 teaming. The primary rationale for teaming is the need for additional network bandwidth and fault tolerance. Teaming offers link aggregation and fault tolerance to meet both of these requirements. Preference teaming should be selected in the following order: IEEE 802.3ad as the first choice, Generic Trunking as the second choice, and SLB teaming as the third choice when using unmanaged switches or switches that do not support the first two options.
  • Page 30: Teaming Mechanisms

    Teaming Mechanisms 4.4.1 Architecture The Broadcom Advanced Server Program (BASP) is implemented as an NDIS intermediate driver (refer to "• Teaming Across Switches Without an Interswitch Link" ( pg.141)). It operates below protocol stacks such as TCP/IP and IPX and appears as a virtual adapter. This virtual adapter inherits the MAC Address of the first port initialized in the team.
  • Page 31 4.4.2 Outbound Traffic Flow The Broadcom Intermediate Driver manages the outbound traffic flow for all teaming modes. For outbound traffic, every packet is first classified into a flow, and then distributed to the selected physical adapter for transmission. The flow classification involves an efficient hash computation over known protocol fields.
  • Page 32: Protocol Support

    On the inbound code path, the Inbound Flow Head Hash Table is also designed to allow concurrent access. The link lists of Inbound Flow Entries are only referenced in the event of processing ARP packets and the periodic load balancing. There is no per packet reference to the Inbound Flow Entries.
  • Page 33: Types Of Teams

    4.4.5 Performance Modern network interface cards provide many hardware features that reduce CPU utilization by offloading certain CPU intensive operations ( "4.7 Teaming and Other Advanced Networking Properties"(pg.138)). In contrast, the BASP intermediate driver is a purely software function that must examine every packet received from the protocol stacks and react to its contents before sending it out through a particular physical interface.
  • Page 34 • Applications The SLB algorithm is most appropriate in home and small business environments where cost is a concern, or with commodity switching equipment. SLB teaming works with unmanaged Layer 2 switches and is a cost-effective way of getting redundancy and link aggregation at the server. Smart Load Balancing also supports teaming physical adapters with differing link capabilities.
  • Page 35 • Configuration Recommendations Static trunking supports connecting the teamed ports to switches if they are on the same broadcast domain and support generic trunking. It does not support connecting to a router or Layer 3 switches since the ports must be on the same subnet. Dynamic Trunking (IEEE 802.3ad Link Aggregation) This mode supports link aggregation through static and dynamic configuration via the Link Aggregation Control Protocol (LACP).

Settings to check include VLANs and QoS Packet Tagging, Jumbo Frames, and the various offloads. Advanced adapter properties and teaming support are listed below.
  • Page 39: Checksum Offload

    Checksum Offload Checksum Offload is a property of the Broadcom network adapters that allows the TCP/IP/UDP checksums for send and receive traffic to be calculated by the adapter hardware rather than by the host CPU. In high-traffic situations, this can allow a system to handle more connections more efficiently than if the host CPU were forced to calculate the checksums.
  • Page 40: General Network Considerations

    Preboot Execution Environment The Preboot Execution Environment (PXE) allows a system to boot from an operating system image over the network. By definition, PXE is invoked before an operating system is loaded, so there is no opportunity for the BASP intermediate driver to load and enable a team. As a result, teaming is not supported as a PXE client, though a physical adapter that participates in a team when the operating system is loaded may be used as a PXE client.
  • Page 41 Furthermore, a failover event would cause additional loss of connectivity. Consider a cable disconnect on the Top Switch port 4. In this case, Gray would send the ICMP Request to Red 49:C9, but because the Bottom switch has no entry for 49:C9 in its CAM Table, the frame is flooded to all its ports but cannot find a way to get to 49:C9.

  • Page 43: Spanning Tree Algorithm

    4.8.3 Spanning Tree Algorithm In Ethernet networks, only one active path may exist between any two bridges or switches. Multiple active paths between switches can cause loops in the network. When loops occur, some switches recognize stations on both sides of the switch. This situation causes the forwarding algorithm to malfunction allowing duplicate frames to be forwarded.
  • Page 44 4.8.4 Topology Change Notice (TCN) A bridge/switch creates a forwarding table of MAC addresses and port numbers by learning the source MAC address that received on a particular port. The table is used to forward frames to a specific port rather than flooding the frame to all ports. The typical maximum aging time of entries in the table is 5 minutes.
  • Page 45 4.8.5 Port Fast/Edge Port To reduce the effect of TCNs on the network (for example, increasing flooding on switch ports), end nodes that are powered on/off often should use the Port Fast or Edge Port setting on the switch port they are attached to.
  • Page 46 4.8.9 SLB Teams SLB teams are the only teaming type not dependant on switch configuration. The server intermediate driver handles the load balancing and fault tolerance mechanisms with no assistance from the switch. These elements of SLB make it the only team type that maintains failover and fallback characteristics when team ports are connected directly to a hub.
  • Page 47 4.8.10 Troubleshooting Teaming Problems When running a protocol analyzer over a virtual adapter teamed interface, the MAC address shown in the transmitted frames may not be correct. The analyzer does not show the frames as constructed by BASP and shows the MAC address of the team and not the MAC address of the interface transmitting the frame.
