IS-IS IPv6 Client for BFD

IS-IS IPv6 Client for BFD

When Bidirectional Forwarding Detection (BFD) support is configured with Intermediate System To Intermediate System (IS-IS) as a registered protocol with BFD, IS-IS receives forwarding path detection failure messages from BFD.

Prerequisites for IS-IS IPv6 Client for BFD

  • IS-IS must be running on all participating devices.
  • The baseline parameters for BFD sessions must be configured on the interfaces that run BFD sessions to BFD neighbors.

Information About IS-IS IPv6 Client for BFD

IS-IS BFD Topology

When BFD support is configured with IS-IS as a registered protocol with BFD, IS-IS receives forwarding path detection failure messages from BFD. BFD support for IS-IS can be configured in either router address-family configuration mode or interface configuration mode. IS-IS IPv6 can run in single-topology or in Multi-Topology (MT) mode.

IS-IS BFD supports both IPv4 and IPv6 on the same adjacency for single-topology or multi-topology mode. If BFD is enabled for both IPv4 and IPv6, IS-IS sends two BFD session creation requests to BFD. For single-topology mode, the IS-IS adjacency state can only be UP if both BFD sessions are UP. If either of the BFD sessions is DOWN, the associated IS-IS adjacency state is also DOWN. For MT mode, the IS-IS adjacency state can be UP as long as one of topologies has a BFD session in an UP state.

IS-IS BFD IPv6 Session Creation

IS-IS requests a BFD session for the interface and IPv6 address of the neighboring device when all of the following conditions are met:
  • An IS-IS adjacency entry exists.
  • The Address Family Identifier (AFI) specific peer interface address is known.
  • IS-IS BFD is enabled for that AFI on an interface.
  • IS-IS is enabled for that AFI on the local interface.
  • If the neighboring device supports RFC 6213, BFD must be enabled for the specified Multi-Topology Identifier (MTID) or Network Layer Protocol Identifier (NLPID).

IS-IS BFD IPv6 Session Deletion

When IS-IS BFD IPv6 is disabled on an interface, IS-IS removes related BFD sessions for IPv6 from the adjacent device. When the IS-IS adjacency entry is deleted, all BFD sessions are also deleted. IS-IS requests BFD to remove each BFD session that it has requested when any of the following events occur:
  • The IS-IS instance is deleted or un-configured.
  • The IS-IS adjacency entry is deleted.
  • IS-IS BFD is disabled on the next hop interface for an address-family.
  • The neighboring device supports RFC 6213 and indicates that it no longer supports BFD for the specified MTID or NLPID.
