Information About OSPFv3 for BFD

The Bidirectional Forwarding Detection (BFD) protocol supports Open Shortest Path First version 3 (OSPFv3).

How to Configure OSPFv3 for BFD

Configuring BFD Support for OSPFv3

This section describes the procedures for configuring BFD support for OSPFv3, so that OSPFv3 is a registered protocol with BFD and will receive forwarding path detection failure messages from BFD. You can either configure BFD support for OSPFv3 globally on all interfaces or configure it selectively on one or more interfaces.

There are two methods for enabling BFD support for OSPFv3:

  • You can enable BFD for all of the interfaces for which OSPFv3 is routing by using the bfd all-interfaces command in router configuration mode. You can disable BFD support on individual interfaces using the ipv6 ospf bfd disable command in interface configuration mode.

  • You can enable BFD for a subset of the interfaces for which OSPFv3 is routing by using the ipv6 ospf bfd command in interface configuration mode.


Note


OSPF will only initiate BFD sessions for OSPF neighbors that are in the FULL state.


Configuring Baseline BFD Session Parameters on the Interface

Repeat this task for each interface over which you want to run BFD sessions to BFD neighbors.

SUMMARY STEPS

    1.    enable

    2.    configure terminal

    3.    interface type number

    4.    bfd interval milliseconds min_rx milliseconds multiplier interval-multiplier


DETAILED STEPS
 Command or ActionPurpose
Step 1 enable


Example:
Device> enable
 

Enables privileged EXEC mode.

  • Enter your password if prompted.

 
Step 2 configure terminal


Example:
Device# configure terminal
 

Enters global configuration mode.

 
Step 3 interface type number


Example:
Device(config)# interface GigabitEthernet 0/0/0
 

Specifies an interface type and number, and places the device in interface configuration mode.

 
Step 4 bfd interval milliseconds min_rx milliseconds multiplier interval-multiplier


Example:
Device(config-if)# bfd interval 50 min_rx 50 multiplier 5
 

Enables BFD on the interface.

 

Configuring BFD Support for OSPFv3 for All Interfaces

Before You Begin

OSPFv3 must be running on all participating devices. The baseline parameters for BFD sessions on the interfaces over which you want to run BFD sessions to BFD neighbors must be configured.

SUMMARY STEPS

    1.    enable

    2.    configure terminal

    3.    ipv6 router ospf process-id [vrf vpn-name]

    4.    bfd all-interfaces

    5.    exit

    6.    show bfd neighbors [vrf vrf-name] [client {bgp | eigrp | isis | ospf | rsvp | te-frr}] [ip-address | ipv6 ipv6-address] [details]

    7.    show ipv6 ospf [process-id] [area-id] [rate-limit]


DETAILED STEPS
 Command or ActionPurpose
Step 1 enable


Example:
Device> enable 
 

Enables privileged EXEC mode.

  • Enter your password if prompted.

 
Step 2 configure terminal


Example:
Device# configure terminal 
 

Enters global configuration mode.

 
Step 3 ipv6 router ospf process-id [vrf vpn-name]


Example:
Device(config)# ipv6 router ospf 2
 

Configures an OSPFv3 routing process.

 
Step 4 bfd all-interfaces


Example:
Device(config-router)# bfd all-interfaces
 

Enables BFD for all interfaces participating in the routing process.

 
Step 5 exit


Example:
Device(config-router)# exit
 

Enter this command twice to go to privileged EXEC mode.

 
Step 6 show bfd neighbors [vrf vrf-name] [client {bgp | eigrp | isis | ospf | rsvp | te-frr}] [ip-address | ipv6 ipv6-address] [details]


Example:
Device# show bfd neighbors detail
 

(Optional) Displays a line-by-line listing of existing BFD adjacencies.

 
Step 7 show ipv6 ospf [process-id] [area-id] [rate-limit]


Example:
Device# show ipv6 ospf
 

(Optional) Displays general information about OSPFv3 routing processes.

 

Configuring OSPF Support for BFD over IPv4 for One or More Interfaces

To configure BFD on one or more OSPF interfaces, perform the steps in this section.

SUMMARY STEPS

    1.    enable

    2.    configure terminal

    3.    interface type number

    4.    ip ospf bfd [disable]

    5.    end

    6.    show bfd neighbors [details]

    7.    show ip ospf


DETAILED STEPS
 Command or ActionPurpose
Step 1 enable


Example:
Device> enable
 

Enables privileged EXEC mode.

  • Enter your password if prompted.

 
Step 2 configure terminal


Example:
Device# configure terminal
 

Enters global configuration mode.

 
Step 3 interface type number


Example:
Device(config)# interface fastethernet 6/0
 

Enters interface configuration mode.

 
Step 4 ip ospf bfd [disable]


Example:
Device(config-if)# ip ospf bfd
 

Enables or disables BFD on a per-interface basis for one or more interfaces associated with the OSPF routing process.

Note   

Use the disable keyword only if you enable BFD on all of the interfaces that OSPF is associated with using the bfd all-interfaces command in router configuration mode.

 
Step 5 end


Example:
Device(config-if)# end
 

Exits interface configuration mode and returns the device to privileged EXEC mode.

 
Step 6 show bfd neighbors [details]


Example:
Device# show bfd neighbors details
 

(Optional) Displays information that can help verify if the BFD neighbor is active and displays the routing protocols that BFD has registered.

Note   

If hardware-offloaded BFD sessions are configured with Tx and Rx intervals that are not multiples of 50 ms, the hardware intervals are changed. However, output from the show bfd neighbors details command displays only the configured intervals, not the interval values that change.

 
Step 7 show ip ospf


Example:
Device# show ip ospf
 

(Optional) Displays information that can help verify if BFD support for OSPF has been enabled.
