Syntax Description

process-id

(Optional) Internal identification. It is locally assigned and can be any positive integer. The number used here is the number assigned administratively when enabling the OSPF routing process.

area-id

(Optional) Area number associated with the OSPF address range defined in the network router configuration command used to define the particular area.

adv-router [ip-address

(Optional) Displays all the LSAs of the specified router. If no IP address is included, the information is about the local router itself (in this case, the same as self-originate).

link-state-id

(Optional) Portion of the Internet environment that is being described by the advertisement. The value entered depends on the advertisement’s LS type. It must be entered in the form of an IP address.

When the link state advertisement is describing a network, the link-state-id can take one of two forms:

The network’s IP address (as in type 3 summary link advertisements and in autonomous system external link advertisements).

A derived address obtained from the link state ID. (Note that masking a network links advertisement’s link state ID with the network’s subnet mask yields the network’s IP address.)

When the link state advertisement is describing a router, the link state ID is always the described router’s OSPF router ID.

When an autonomous system external advertisement (LS Type = 5) is describing a default route, its link state ID is set to Default Destination (0.0.0.0).

asbr-summary

(Optional) Displays information only about the autonomous system boundary router summary LSAs.

database-summary

(Optional) Displays how many of each type of LSA for each area there are in the database, and the total.

external

(Optional) Displays information only about the external LSAs.

network

(Optional) Displays information only about the network LSAs.

nssa-external

(Optional) Displays information only about the NSSA external LSAs.

router

(Optional) Displays information only about the router LSAs.

self-originate

(Optional) Displays only self-originated LSAs (from the local router).

summary

(Optional) Displays information only about the summary LSAs.

Table 18  show ip ospf neighbor summary and show ip ospf neighbor summary per-instance Field Descriptions

Field

Description

DOWN

No information (hellos) has been received from this neighbor, but hello packets can still be sent to the neighbor in this state.

ATTEMPT

This state is only valid for manually configured neighbors in a Non-Broadcast Multi-Access (NBMA) environment. In Attempt state, the router sends unicast hello packets every poll interval to the neighbor, from which hellos have not been received within the dead interval.

INIT

This state specifies that the router has received a hello packet from its neighbor, but the receiving router's ID was not included in the hello packet. When a router receives a hello packet from a neighbor, it should list the sender's router ID in its hello packet as an acknowledgment that it received a valid hello packet.

2WAY

This state designates that bi-directional communication has been established between two routers.

EXSTART

This state is the first step in creating an adjacency between the two neighboring routers. The goal of this step is to decide which router is the master, and to decide upon the initial DD sequence number. Neighbor conversations in this state or greater are called adjacencies.

EXCHANGE

In this state, OSPF routers exchange database descriptor (DBD) packets. Database descriptors contain link-state advertisement (LSA) headers only and describe the contents of the entire link-state database. Each DBD packet has a sequence number which can be incremented only by master which is explicitly acknowledged by slave. Routers also send link-state request packets and link-state update packets (which contain the entire LSA) in this state. The contents of the DBD received are compared to the information contained in the routers link-state database to check if new or more current link-state information is available with the neighbor.

LOADING

In this state, the actual exchange of link state information occurs. Based on the information provided by the DBDs, routers send link-state request packets. The neighbor then provides the requested link-state information in link-state update packets. During the adjacency, if a device receives an outdated or missing LSA, it requests that LSA by sending a link-state request packet. All link-state update packets are acknowledged.

FULL

In this state, devices are fully adjacent with each other. All the device and network LSAs are exchanged and the devices' databases are fully synchronized.

Full is the normal state for an OSPF device. If a device is stuck in another state, it's an indication that there are problems in forming adjacencies. The only exception to this is the 2-way state, which is normal in a broadcast network. Devices achieve the full state with their DR and BDR only. Neighbors always see each other as 2-way.

The table below describes the significant fields shown in the display.

Table 26 show ip ospf traffic Field Descriptions

Field

Description

OSPF statistics

Traffic statistics accumulated for all OSPF processes running on the router. To ensure compatibility with the showiptraffic command, only checksum errors are displayed. Identifies the route map name.

OSPF queues statistic for process ID

Statistics specific to Cisco IOS software.

OSPF Hello queue

Statistics for the internal Cisco IOS queue between the packet switching code (process IP Input) and the OSPF hello process for all received OSPF packets.

OSPF Router queue

Statistics for the internal Cisco IOS queue between the OSPF hello process and the OSPF router for all received OSPF packets except OSPF hellos.

queue size

Actual size of the queue.

queue limit

Maximum allowed size of the queue.

queue max size

Maximum recorded size of the queue.

Interface statistics

Per-interface traffic statistics for all interfaces that belong to the specific OSPF process ID.

OSPF packets received/sent

Number of OSPF packets received and sent on the interface, sorted by packet types.

OSPF header errors

Packet appears in this section if it was discarded because of an error in the header of an OSPF packet. The discarded packet is counted under the appropriate discard reason. Number of packets dropped due to TTL security check is displayed if that feature has been configured.

OSPF LSA errors

Packet appears in this section if it was discarded because of an error in the header of an OSPF link-state advertisement (LSA). The discarded packet is counted under the appropriate discard reason.

Summary traffic statistics for process ID

Summary traffic statistics accumulated for an OSPF process.

Note   

The OSPF process ID is a unique value assigned to the OSPF process in the configuration.

The value for the received errors is the sum of the OSPF header errors that are detected by the OSPF process, unlike the sum of the checksum errors that are listed in the global OSPF statistics.

Examples

The following is sample output from the show ip ospf traffic command. The output has been modified to include the number of packets dropped due a TTL security check.

Router# show ip ospf traffic

The network administrator wants to start collecting new statistics, resetting the counters and clearing the traffic statistics by entering the clearipv6ospftraffic command as follows:

Router# clear ipv6 ospf traffic

The table below describes the significant fields shown in the display.

Table 32 show ipv6 ospf traffic Field Descriptions

Field

Description

OSPFv3 statistics

Traffic statistics accumulated for all OSPF processes running on the router. To ensure compatibility with the showiptraffic command, only checksum errors are displayed. Identifies the route map name.

OSPFv3 queues statistic for process ID

Queue statistics specific to Cisco IOS software.

Hello queue

Statistics for the internal Cisco IOS queue between the packet switching code (process IP Input) and the OSPF hello process for all received OSPF packets.

Router queue

Statistics for the internal Cisco IOS queue between the OSPF hello process and the OSPF router for all received OSPF packets except OSPF hellos.

queue size

Actual size of the queue.

queue limit

Maximum allowed size of the queue.

queue max size

Maximum recorded size of the queue.

Interface statistics

Per-interface traffic statistics for all interfaces that belong to the specific OSPFv3 process ID.

OSPFv3 packets received/sent

Number of OSPFv3 packets received and sent on the interface, sorted by packet types.

OSPFv3 header errors

Packet appears in this section if it was discarded because of an error in the header of an OSPFv3 packet. The discarded packet is counted under the appropriate discard reason.

OSPFv3 LSA errors

Packet appears in this section if it was discarded because of an error in the header of an OSPF link-state advertisement (LSA). The discarded packet is counted under the appropriate discard reason.

Summary traffic statistics for process ID

Summary traffic statistics accumulated for an OSPFv3 process.

Note   

The OSPF process ID is a unique value assigned to the OSPFv3 process in the configuration.

The value for the received errors is the sum of the OSPFv3 header errors that are detected by the OSPFv3 process, unlike the sum of the checksum errors that are listed in the global OSPF statistics.

Usage Guidelines

The snmp-server enable traps ospf cisco-specific lsa command enables the traps that are defined by the CISCO-OSPF-TRAP-MIB for opaque LSAs. An opaque link-state advertisement (LSA) is used in MPLS traffic engineering to distribute attributes such as capacity and topology of links in a network. The scope of this LSA can be confined to the local network (Type 9, Link-Local), OSPF area (Type 20, Area-Local), or Autonomous System (Type 11, AS scope). The information in an opaque LSA can be used by an external application across the OSPF network. To enable the cospfMaxAgeLsa trap, enter the snmp-server enable traps ospf cisco-specific lsacommand with the lsa-maxage keyword.

summary-address (OSPF)

To create aggregate addresses for Open Shortest Path First (OSPF), use the summary-address command in router configuration mode. To restore the default, use the no form of this command.

summary-address commandsummary-address { ip-address mask | prefix mask } [not-advertise] [ tag tag ] [nssa-only]

no summary-address { ip-address mask | prefix mask } [not-advertise] [ tag tag ] [nssa-only]

Syntax Description

ip-address

Summary address designated for a range of addresses.

mask

IP subnet mask used for the summary route.

prefix

IP route prefix for the destination.

not-advertise

(Optional) Suppresses routes that match the specified prefix/mask pair. This keyword applies to OSPF only.

tag tag

(Optional) Specifies the tag value that can be used as a “match” value for controlling redistribution via route maps. This keyword applies to OSPF only.

nssa-only

(Optional) Sets the nssa-only attribute for the summary route (if any) generated for the specified prefix, which limits the summary to not-so-stubby-area (NSSA) areas.

15.0(1)M

This command was modified. The nssa-only keyword was added.

Usage Guidelines

R outes learned from other routing protocols can be summarized. The metric used to advertise the summary is the lowest metric of all the more specific routes. This command helps reduce the size of the routing table.

Using this command for OSPF causes an OSPF Autonomous System Boundary Router (ASBR) to advertise one external route as an aggregate for all redistributed routes that are covered by the address. For OSPF, this command summarizes only routes from other routing protocols that are being redistributed into OSPF. Use the area range command for route summarization between OSPF areas.

OSPF does not support the summary-address 0.0.0.0 0.0.0.0command.

Examples

In the following example, the summary address 10.1.0.0 includes address 10.1.1.0, 10.1.2.0, 10.1.3.0, and so on. Only the address 10.1.0.0 is advertised in an external link-state advertisement.

12.2(33)XNE

This command was modified. It was integrated into Cisco IOS Release 12.2(33)XNE.

Usage Guidelines

The timers lsa arrival command controls the minimum interval for accepting the same LSA. The “same LSA” is defined as an LSA instance that contains the same LSA ID number, LSA type, and advertising router ID. If an instance of the same LSA arrives sooner than the interval that is set, the LSA is dropped.

We suggest you keep the millisecondsvalue of the timers lsa arrival command less than or equal to the neighbors’ hold-interval value of the timers throttle lsa all command.

Examples

The following example sets the minimum interval for accepting the same LSA at 2000 milliseconds:

router ospf 1
 log-adjacency-changes
 timers throttle lsa all 200 10000 45000
 timers lsa arrival 2000

12.2SX

This command is supported in the Cisco IOS Release 12.2SX train. Support in a specific 12.2SX release of this train depends on your feature set, platform, and platform hardware.

Usage Guidelines

Configuring Open Shortest Path First (OSPF) flood pacing timers allows you to control interpacket spacing between consecutive link-state update packets in the OSPF transmission queue. This command allows you to control the rate at which LSA updates occur so that high CPU or buffer utilization that can occur when an area is flooded with a very large number of LSAs can be reduced.

The default settings for OSPF packet pacing timers are suitable for the majority of OSPF deployments. Do not change the packet pacing timers unless all other options to meet OSPF packet flooding requirements have been exhausted. Specifically, network operators should prefer summarization, stub area usage, queue tuning, and buffer tuning before changing the default flood timers. Furthermore, there are no guidelines for changing timer values; each OSPF deployment is unique and should be considered on a case-by-case basis. The network operator assumes risks associated with changing the default flood timer values.

Examples

The following example configures LSA flood packet-pacing updates to occur in 55-millisecond intervals for Open Shortest Path First (OSPF) routing process 1:

Router(config)# router ospf 1
Router(config-router)# timers pacing flood 55

Usage Guidelines

This command allows you to control the rate at which LSA updates occur so that high CPU or buffer utilization that can occur when an area is flooded with a very large number of LSAs can be reduced. The default settings for OSPF packet pacing timers are suitable for the majority of OSPF deployments. Do not change the packet pacing timers unless all other options to meet OSPF packet flooding requirements have been exhausted.

Furthermore, there are no guidelines for changing timer values; each OSPF deployment is unique and should be considered on a case-by-case basis. The network operator assumes the risks associated with changing the default timer values.

Cisco IOS software groups the periodic refresh of LSAs to improve the LSA packing density for the refreshes in large topologies. The group timer controls the interval used for group refreshment of LSAs; however, this timer does not change the frequency that individual LSAs are refreshed (the default refresh rate is every 30 minutes).

The duration of the LSA group pacing is inversely proportional to the number of LSAs the router is handling. For example, if you have about 10,000 LSAs, decreasing the pacing interval would benefit you. If you have a very small database (40 to 100 LSAs), increasing the pacing interval to 10 to 20 minutes might benefit you slightly.

Examples

The following example configures OSPF group packet-pacing updates between LSA groups to occur in 60-second intervals for OSPF routing process 1:

Router(config)# router ospf 1
Router(config-router)# timers pacing lsa-group 60
