Configuring a Basic IS-IS Network

Configuring a Basic IS-IS Network

Last Updated: December 4, 2012

This module describes the tasks to configure and monitor a basic Intermediate System-to-Intermediate System (IS-IS) network. The IS-IS process and adjacency formation are also explained. IS-IS is link-state protocol that allows the network designer to organize the network into a group of flooding domains. Often deployed as the Interior Gateway Protocol (IGP) for an ISP network backbone, IS-IS is capable of handling large topologies and large numbers of routing changes.

Prerequisites for Configuring a Basic IS-IS Network

  • Before performing the tasks in this module, you should be familiar with the concepts described in the "Integrated IS-IS Routing Protocol Overview" module.
  • You should know your network design and how you want traffic to flow through it before configuring IS-IS. Define areas, prepare an addressing plan for the routers (including defining the NETs), and determine the interfaces that will run Integrated IS-IS. To facilitate verification, a matrix of adjacencies should be prepared before you configure your routers, showing what neighbors should be expected in the adjacencies table. For more information on verifying IS-IS configuration and formed adjacencies, see the Monitoring IS-IS.

Information About the IS-IS Routing Protocol

IS-IS Process and Adjacencies

IS-IS requires some configuration on both the router and the interface. An IS-IS process is created when you enable IS-IS on a router and define a specific tag to identify that routing process. Interfaces configured with a specific tag will be part of the corresponding router process. More than one IS-IS process can run on a router for Connectionless Network Service (CLNS), but only one IS-IS process can run for IP.

Small IS-IS networks are built as a single area that includes all the routers in the network. As the network grows larger, it is usually reorganized into a backbone area made up of the connected set of all Level 2 routers from all areas. The areas are connected to local areas. Within a local area, routers know how to reach all system IDs. Between areas, routers know how to reach the backbone, and the backbone routers know how to reach other areas.

Routers establish Level 1 adjacencies to perform routing within a local area (intra-area routing). Routers establish Level 2 adjacencies to perform routing between Level 1 areas (inter-area routing).

If the network administrator does not specify Level 1 or Level 2 routing for the routing process being configured, the default routing behavior for the routing process will be Level 1-2.

If Level 2 routing is configured on any process, additional processes are automatically configured as Level 1, with the exception of previously configured Level 2 process, which will remain Level 2. You can have only one Level-2 process. You can configure the Level-2 process to perform Level-1 routing at the same time. If Level-2 routing is not desired for a router instance, use the is-type command in router configuration mode to remove the Level-2 capability. You can also use the is-type command to configure a different router instance as a Level-2 router.

Some networks use legacy equipment that supports only Level 1 routing. These devices are typically organized into many small areas that cannot be aggregated due to performance limitations. Cisco routers are used to interconnect each area to the Level 2 backbone.

Network entity titles (NETs) define the area addresses and the system ID of the router.

PDU Packet Types in IS-IS Routing

The OSI stack defines a unit of data as a protocol data unit (PDU). A frame therefore is regarded by OSI as a data-link PDU, and a packet is regarded as a network PDU. There are four types of PDU packets, and each type can be Level 1 or Level 2:

  • LSP--Link-state PDU. Used to distribute link-state information.
  • IIH PDU--For IS-IS this is called the IS-IS Hello PDU. Used to establish and maintain adjacencies.

Note


On point-to-point links, IIH PDUs will be the same for Level 1 and Level 2. Both Level-1 and Level-2 IIH use the same type of PDU, but they carry different circuit types.
  • PSNP--Partial sequence numbers protocol data unit (PDU). Used to acknowledge and request link-state information.
  • CSNP--Complete sequence number protocol data unit (PDU). Used to distribute the complete link-state database of a router.

IS-IS LSPs include specific information about the router's attachments. The following information is included in multiple TLV fields in the main body of the LSP:

  • The links to neighbor router intermediate systems (ISs), including the metrics of those interfaces
  • The links to the neighbor end systems (ESs)

You can shut down IS-IS (placing it in an administrative down state) to make changes to the IS-IS protocol configuration, without losing your configuration parameters. You can shut down IS-IS at the interface level or at the global IS-IS process level. If the router was rebooted when the protocol was turned off, the protocol would be expected to come back up in the disabled state. When the protocol is set to the administrative down state, network administrators are allowed to administratively turn off the operation of the IS-IS protocol without losing the protocol configuration, to make a series of changes to the protocol configuration without having the operation of the protocol transition through intermediate--and perhaps undesirable--states, and to then reenable the protocol at a suitable time.

How to Create Monitor and Make Changes to a Basic IS-IS Network

Assigns a tag to an IS-IS process. Enters router configuration mode.

  • Configure tags to identify multiple IS-IS processes by giving a meaningful name for each routing process. If the tag is not specified, a null tag (0) is assumed and the process is referenced with a null tag. The tag name must be unique among all IP router processes for the router.
 
Step 4
net network-entity-title


Example:

Router(config-router)# net 49.0001.0000.0000.000b.00

 

Configures the NET on the router.

  • The NET identifies the router for IS-IS.
 
Step 5

Step 5
ip router isis [area - tag]


Example:

Router(config-if)# ip router isis company1

 

Enables IS-IS on the interfaces that are to use IS-IS to distribute their IP information (and additionally that might be used to establish IS-IS adjacencies).

Note    If there is more than one IS-IS process on the router, repeat the ip router isis command for each interface, specifying an area tag for each interface to associate each interface with the specific process to which it belongs.
 
Step 6
end


Example:

Router(config-if)# end

 

Exits interface configuration mode and returns to privileged EXEC mode.

DETAILED STEPS
  Command or Action Purpose
Step 1
enable


Example:

Router> enable

 

Enables privileged EXEC mode.

  • Enter your password if prompted.
 
Step 2
configure terminal


Example:

Router# configure terminal

 

Enters global configuration mode.

 
Step 3
isis display delimiter [return count | character count]


Example:

Router(config)# isis display delimiter return 15

 

Makes output from multiarea displays easier to read by specifying the delimiter to use to separate displays of information.

 
Step 4
exit


Example:

Router(config)# exit

 

Returns to privileged EXEC mode.

 
Step 5
show ip protocols


Example:

Router# show ip protocols

 

Displays the parameters and current state of the active routing protocol process.

  • You can use this command to learn what protocols are active, what interfaces they are active on, what networks they are routing for, and other parameters that relate to the routing protocols.
 
Step 6
show clns is area-tag neighbors [type number] [detail]


Example:

Router# show clns is tag3 neighbors detail

 

Displays IS-IS information for IS-IS router adjacencies.

 
Step 7
show clns interface [type number]


Example:

Router# show clns interface

 

List the CLNS-specific information about each interface.

 
Step 8
show clns area-tag neighbors [type number] [area] [detail]


Example:

Router# show clns area3 neighbors

 

Displays both ES and IS neighbors.

  • The show clns neighbor command output verifies that the right adjacencies have established. A matrix of adjacencies should be prepared before you configure your routers, showing what neighbors should be expected in the adjacencies table, to facilitate verification.
 
Step 9
show clns area-tag traffic


Example:

Router# show clns area3 traffic

 

Displays traffic statistics.

To monitor IS-IS for stability once it has been deployed across your network, enter the show clns traffic command to check the following important statistics: high numbers of SPFs, checksum errors, and retransmissions. To troubleshoot IS-IS behavior, you can use the output from the show clns traffic command to check for the following indicators:

  • The number of link-state PDUs (LSPs) can help you determine the stability of the IS-IS network. The number of LSPs should never be zero. However, an LSP count that keeps increasing over a short time period indicates a network issue.
  • LSP retransmissions should stay low. A later execution of the show clns traffic command that shows an increase in LSP retransmissions, as compared to an earlier execution of the command, can indicate instability or traffic problems.
  • To check for partial route calculations (PRCs), enter the show clns traffic command. PRCs are flooded when a change that does not affect topology is reported through an LSP; typical examples include the addition or removal of a prefix or metric changes for external or passive interfaces. A PRC update queue that remains full or increases to the maximum value for long periods of time indicates network instability.
  • LSP checksum errors indicate a problem.
  • The update queue should not stay full and should not drop much.
 
Step 10
show ip route [ip-address [mask]] [longer-prefixes| protocol [process-id] | list [access-list-number | access-list-name] | static download]


Example:

Router# show ip route 172.16.0.21

 

Displays the current state of the routing table.

 
Step 11
show isis [process-tag] database [level-1] [level-2] [l1] [l2] [detail] [lspid]


Example:

Router# show isis database detail

 

Displays additional information about the IS-IS database.

  • Displays the link-state database for Level-1 and Level-2, the contents for each LSP, and the link-state protocol PDU identifier.
 
Step 12
show isis database verbose


Example:

Router# show isis database verbose

 

Displays additional information about the IS-IS database such as the sequence number, checksum, and holdtime for LSPs.

 
Step 13
show isis lsp-log


Example:

Router# show isis lsp-log

 

Displays a log of LSPs including time of occurrence, count, interface, and the event that triggered the LSP.

 
Step 14
show isis [area-tag] [ipv6 | *] spf-log


Example:

Router# show isis spf-log

 

Displays how often and why the router has run a full shortest path first (SPF) calculation.

  • If the router continues to run SPF without ceasing, there might be an issue regarding a change in the network (intra-area). The cause for the continued SPF calculations could be an interconnecting link that is transitioning up/down/up/down or a metric change. It is normal for the SPF calculation to run a few times when a network change occurs, but then it should cease.
 
Step 15
show isis [process-tag] [ipv6 | *] topology


Example:

Router# show isis topology

 

Displays a list of all connected routers in all areas.

 
Step 16
show isis [area-tag] neighbors[detail]


Example:

Router# show isis neighbors detail

 

Displays IS-IS adjacency information.

  • The show isis neighbor detailcommand output verifies that the right adjacencies have established. A matrix of adjacencies should be prepared before you configure your routers, showing what neighbors should be expected in the adjacencies table, to facilitate verification.
 

Examples

When the show isis neighbors command is entered with the detail keyword, the output provides information on the IS-IS adjacencies that have formed.

Router1# show isis neighbors detail
System Id      Type Interface IP Address      State Holdtime Circuit Id
Router2         L2   GE1/0/0   10.1.1.0        UP   255      Circuit3.01          
  Area Address(es): 32
  SNPA: aabb.cc00.2001      
  State Changed: 00:00:14
  LAN Priority: 64
  Format: Phase V

Troubleshooting Tips

You can use the following two system debugging commands to check your IS-IS IPv4 implementation.

  • If adjacencies are not coming up properly, use the debug isis adj-packets command.
  • To display a log of significant events during an IS-IS SPF calculation, use the debug isis spf-events command.

Example Shutting Down IS-IS in Interface Mode

The following router output shows that the router has two IS-IS adjacencies:

Router# show clns neighbors
System Id  Interface  SNPA            State  Holdtime  Type      Protocol
first      GE3/1/0    0002.7dd6.1c21  Up     25        L1L2      IS-IS
second     GE3/2/0    0004.6d25.c056  Up     29        L1L2      IS-IS

When the isis protocol shutdown command is entered for GigabitEthernet interface 3/1/0, the IS-IS protocol will be disabled for the specified interface:

Router# configure terminal
Enter configuration commands, one per line.  End with CNTL/Z.
Router(config)# interface gigabitethernet3/1/0
Router(config-if)# isis protocol shutdown
Router(config-if)# end

The following router output shows that the adjacency for GigabitEthernet interface 3/1/0 has not formed:

Router# show clns neighbors
System Id  Interface  SNPA            State  Holdtime  Type      Protocol
second     GE3/2/0    0004.6d25.c056  Up     27        L1L2      IS-IS

Example Shutting Down IS-IS in Router Mode

The following router output shows that the router has two IS-IS adjacencies:

Router# show clns neighbors
System Id  Interface  SNPA            State  Holdtime  Type      Protocol
south      GE3/1/0    0002.7dd6.1c21  Up     29        L1L2      IS-IS
north      GE3/2/0    0004.6d25.c056  Up     28        L1L2      IS-IS

The protocol shutdown command is entered so that IS-IS is disabled and no adjacencies will be formed on any interface:

Router# configure terminal
Enter configuration commands, one per line.  End with CNTL/Z.
Router(config)# router isis area1
Router(config-router)# protocol shutdown
Router(config-router)# end

The following router output now shows that both adjacencies are gone.

Router# show clns neighbors
System Id  Interface  SNPA            State  Holdtime  Type      Protocol

When the no protocol shutdown command is entered, the adjacencies will again be formed on both interfaces:

Router(config)# router isis area1
Router(config-router)# no protocol shutdown
Router(config-router)# end
Router# show clns neighbors
