HA Support for MLDP

HA Support for MLDP

Last Updated: November 20, 2012

The HA Support for MLDP feature enables Cisco Multicast Label Distribution Protocol (MLDP) to checkpoint sufficient signaling and forwarding information for repopulating the necessary database on a dual Route Processor (RP) platform on which Stateful Switchover/Nonstop Forwarding (SSO/NSF) and Label Distribution Protocol (LDP) Graceful Restart are configured, after a switchover.

Finding Feature Information

Prerequisites for HA Support for MLDP

Last Updated: November 20, 2012
  • Stateful Switchover/Nonstop Forwarding (SSO/NSF) and LDP Graceful Restart must be configured on the dual Route Processor (RP) platform.
  • LDP Graceful Restart must be configured on the NSF router peers.
  • The Cisco IOS release software installed on the active and standby RPs must support MLDP-based MVPN and HA Support for MLDP.

Restrictions for HA Support for MLDP

Last Updated: November 20, 2012
  • If Label Distribution Protocol (LDP) Graceful Restart is not enabled on the dual Route Processor (RP) platform, Nonstop Forwarding (NSF) peers will remove existing forwarding and label information from their Multicast Label Distribution Protocol (MLDP) database entries immediately following a switchover.

Information About HA Support for MLDP

Last Updated: November 20, 2012

The HA Support for MLDP feature enables MLDP to checkpoint label forwarding or path set information. To support NSF, MLDP uses existing PIM HA architecture to checkpoint the information to the standby RP.

MDT data group creation is a dynamic event triggered by traffic exceeding a specified threshold. When the threshold is exceeded (requiring an MDT data group to be created) or when traffic falls below the threshold (requiring the MDT data group to be deleted), the router detecting the event creates, deletes, or updates an MDT data "send" entry, creates the corresponding (S,G) state, if necessary, and sends a message to PE peers to create, delete, or update a corresponding MDT data "receive" entry and the corresponding (S,G) state.

The active RP will checkpoint the current state of the MLDP peer, paths to peers, root, paths to root, and the database and replication/branch entry onto the standby RP and use this state to recreate the MLDP state after a switchover.
