Restrictions for Medianet Metadata

  • The metadata transport mechanism (Resource Reservation Protocol [RSVP]) carries metadata only in the downstream direction, that is, toward the destination IP address.
  • Metadata does not support high availability (HA). Therefore, after switchover, the RSVP path refresh messages are generated every 30 seconds to update the RSVP and metadata database.
  • A path tear can happen in RSVP because of reservation preemption for higher priority reservation, but the flow could still be active. Metadata deletes entries in the database on path tear and reprograms the data forwarding path. The flow continues to be active without any metadata features applied on it.
  • RSVP does not support Network Address Translation (NAT). Hence, metadata needs to track flow key and attribute information before and after NAT.

Information About Medianet Metadata

Metadata Overview

The metadata infrastructure provides a framework that allows data from one component to be available to another component on the same network element and across network elements.

Flow metadata is the data that describes a flow in the network. This metadata describes the five-tuple flow along with its attributes. Network elements can take action based on the metadata generated by the endpoints.

The metadata infrastructure consists of two major components—producers and consumers.

  • Producers—Metadata producer is any source of metadata. The producer propagates all the attributes of a given flow. Producers can be anywhere in the network–endpoint, proxy agents or intermediate nodes. Metadata generated by the endpoints is supported. Producers use a specific transport protocol such as Resource Reservation Protocol (RSVP) for signaling metadata attributes to store the information in a database, referred to as the control plane database, which can then be used by the consumers.
  • Consumers—Metadata consumer is any network element that uses the flow tuple and metadata provided by producers. The flow tuple and metadata can also be propagated along the media path to consumers in different network elements via a transport infrastructure.

Note


Only the initiator of metadata is source aware. The initiator stores the source with its list of attributes along with the flow. But the downstream devices get only one list of attributes. The list is a consolidation of attributes from all sources with the attribute from a higher priority source, overriding the attribute from a lower priority source. Media Services Interface (MSI) has the highest priority followed by Media Services Proxy (MSP) and Network Based Application Recognition (NBAR).


Metadata Properties

Metadata is represented as a list of <Attribute, Value> pairs. Actions such as configuring the metadata values and updating and deleting the existing metadata are driven by the producers. Consumers read these metadata values and take appropriate action based on the control plane classification.

Metadata Control Plane Classification

Classifying network traffic allows you to organize traffic (that is, packets) into traffic classes or categories on the basis of whether the traffic matches specific criteria. You can classify network traffic to enable many quality of service (QoS) features on your network.

The metadata control plane classification is activated only when a consumer is registered with the metadata infrastructure. The metadata framework supports Cisco Common Classification Policy Language-based control plane classification.

Cisco Common Classification Policy Language is a replacement for feature-specific configuration commands. Cisco Common Classification Policy Language allows you to create traffic policies based on events, conditions, and actions. If Cisco Common Classification Policy Language classification succeeds, then the <Attribute, Value> pair is distributed to all the registered consumers.

In a scenario where QoS is a metadata consumer, the following steps briefly describe the control plane classification process:

  • The required classification match commands are provisioned for a class map attached to the relevant target interface.
  • Every incoming flow from the producer is matched against the provisioned class.
  • If an appropriate match is found, relevant actions specified in the policy are performed.

If the control plane classification is successful, then the <Attribute, Value> pair is distributed to all the consumers registered for metadata infrastructure. When packets related to the flow reach the network element, appropriate actions provisioned in the class are applied. For instance, if the action was set dscp 0xef, then this particular QoS action is applied on all packets matching this flow.

Metadata Transport

Metadata generated by the producers must be available at every network element in the media path. The metadata transport mechanism ensures that the metadata is propagated across the network and is delivered to all the network elements in the media path.

The figure below illustrates the metadata transport architecture.

Figure 1. Metadata Transport Architecture

The application at the source endpoint triggers the metadata layer to initiate a metadata session with the appropriate <Attribute, Value> pairs. The information with the <Attribute, Value> pairs is then carried along the media path and terminated at the destination endpoint.

The metadata with the <Attribute, Value> pairs is provided to the consumers at every network element, if the consumers are registered. Additional metadata elements that are generated at every network element can be sent along with the existing metadata. The metadata flows in the down stream of the media path.

Metadata applications have several subapplications. Each subapplication has an identifier. Metadata supports the following sub-applications:

  • Traffic-type
  • Transport-type
  • Signaling-type
  • Multiplex-type

Each subapplication is dependent on a specific application. The table below lists subapplications associated with eat application.

Metadata Flow Entries

Any producer can add flow metadata into the database and any consumer can access this information.

Metadata can be updated during the flow. When metadata attributes change during the flow, the network elements are notified through Resource Reservation Protocol (RSVP) PATH TEAR messages.

When the RSVP session terminates via a PATH TEAR message, the metadata framework listens to these messages and deletes the relevant flow entry in the database.

Medianet Metadata Implementation

The figure below illustrates a sample deployment scenario for the medianet metadata implementation.
Figure 2. Medianet Metadata Implementation

As illustrated in the figure above, two users from different locations can be in a WebEx, Telepresence, or a Cisco IP phone session.

This example assumes the users to be in a WebEx session. WebEx sessions typically require low latency guarantee from the network. QoS configurations can be used to obtain the required behavior. To achieve the required behavior, the required types of policy maps must be configured on the given interface to match the application ID of WebEx. Once this classification provisioning is done, metadata will also have a copy of this information in its classification database. One end of Webex session (endpoint A) signals the application as the metadata, using explicit signaling from the endpoints. The metadata information can be the application name, application ID, application version, and so on. This metadata information flows through the network along the media path.

Resource Reservation Protocol (RSVP) notifies the metadata framework about any incoming flow and provides the metadata information associated with the flow. A match action is performed between the decoded <Attribute, Value> pair and the WebEx metadata properties. If the match is successful, then the same information is propagated to the data plane. The data plane checks the appropriate classification requirements and takes the required QoS actions.

The following example shows how to configure QoS properties to work with the metadata framework. In the following sample configuration, a class map v1 is created.

! Creates a class-map with metadata-based filters
class-map match-all v1
match application webex-video
exit
!

Next, a policy map p1 is created and the class v1 is added to it. The packets belonging to class v1 are given priority by giving the entire class a guaranteed bandwidth of 1 Mbps. That is, the aggregate of all the flows that match the <Attribute, Value> pair defined in the class v1 are given a guaranteed bandwidth. Any other QoS solutions such as policing, marking, or queueing can also be applied as a classification criterion.

! Create policy map and apply the classification properties
policy-map p1
class v1
priority 1000
exit

Then, the policy map is attached to the target interface:

! Attach the policy map to the target interface
interface Ethernet 1/0
service-policy output p1

For more information about QoS network traffic classification and solutions such as policing, marking, or queuing, see the Quality of Service Solutions Configuration Guide.

How to Configure and Verify Medianet Metadata

Enabling Metadata Globally or on a Specific Interface

The first consumer registering for metadata triggers the enabling of metadata. The corresponding egress interface for a given flow enables metadata and Resource Reservation Protocol (RSVP) if they are not enabled already. Although you can disable metadata by using the no metadata flow command, we recommend that the metadata be enabled.

Perform this task to enable metadata on a specific interface.

      Troubleshooting Tips

      Typically, for the metadata information to propagate from the source to the destination, all the network elements along the media path need not support the metadata framework. However, perform the following steps to troubleshoot any flow-metadata-related problems along the path between the source and the destination:

      • Perform the ping operation to test for the basic connectivity and reachability of the destination network element from the source.
      • Enter the show metadata flow command and check the output to determine if the egress interface is correctly populated.
      • Enable RSVP, if it was disabled intentionally (RSVP is enabled by default).
      • Enter the show metadata flow command on the network elements along the media path to verify if the content of the metadata flow table is the same as that in the source network element. However, for you to be able to verify the metadata flow table of any network element, you must first enable metadata flow by using the metadata flow command.

          Configuration Examples for Medianet Metadata

          Example: Enabling Metadata Globally or on a Specific Interface

          The following example shows how to enable metadata globally:

          Device> enable
          Device# configure terminal
          Device(config)# metadata flow
          Device(config)# exit
          

          The following example shows how to enable metadata on a specific interface:

          Device> enable
          Device# configure terminal
          Device(config)# interface fastethernet 0/1
          Device(config-if)# metadata flow
          Device(config-if)# exit
