11.1CC

11.1(18.1)CC - 11.1(19)CC

Problem Description

When configured with OSPF, EIGRP, or STUN along with Weighted Fair Queuing (WFQ), hello packets are being dropped because of hashed queues function in Cisco IOS. Distributed WFQ (DWFQ) is not affected.

Note:?WFQ is on by default for physical interfaces with bandwidths less than or equal to 2.048Mbps and that do not use Link Access Procedure, Balanced (LAPB), X.25, PPP, or Synchronous Data Link Control (SDLC) encapsulations.

Bug Details

CSCdk10629 has been opened for the symptom stated above and has been marked a duplicate of CSCdj95348. The actual software defect was introduced in CSCdj77694.

Cisco Bug ID CSCdj77694 (registered customers only) - Packets out of sequence with WFQ.

Cisco Bug ID CSCdk10629 (registered customers only) - EIGRP: HELLO pkts could not go out on HSSI/4T with fair queue on.

Cisco Bug ID CSCdj95348 (registered customers only) - STUN basic doesnt pass data when direct is configured

Problem Symptoms

Neighbors will not see the router that is affected by CSCdk10629 because the hello packets are dropped from the affected router. The router affected will see its neighbors. The show ip eigrp neighbor command can be used to view the neighbors. For example, the command output below shows one neighbor:

router#sh ip eigrp nei
IP-EIGRP neighbors for process 1
