MPLS Traffic Engineering Automatic Bandwidth Adjustment for TE Tunnels

The MPLS Traffic Engineering (TE) Automatic Bandwidth Adjustment for TE Tunnels feature provides the means to automatically adjust the bandwidth allocation for traffic engineering tunnels based on their measured traffic load. The configured bandwidth in the running configuration is changed due to the automatic bandwidth behavior.

Prerequisites for MPLS TE Automatic Bandwidth Adjustment for TE Tunnels

Your network must support the following:

  • Multiprotocol Label Switching (MPLS) traffic engineering (TE) tunnels
  • Cisco Express Forwarding
  • Intermediate System-to-Intermediate System (IS-IS) or Open Shortest Path First (OSPF)

MPLS TE must be configured on the interface and on the tunnels.

Restrictions for MPLS TE Automatic Bandwidth Adjustment for TE Tunnels

  • The automatic bandwidth adjustment feature treats each tunnel for which it has been enabled independently. That is, it adjusts the bandwidth for each such tunnel according to the adjustment frequency configured for the tunnel and the sampled output rate for the tunnel since the last adjustment without regard for any adjustments previously made or pending for other tunnels.
  • If a tunnel is brought down to calculate a new label switched path (LSP) because the LSP is not operational, the configured bandwidth is not saved. If the router is reloaded, the last saved automatic bandwidth value is used.
  • You cannot configure MPLS TE over the logical generic routing encapsulation (GRE) tunnel interface.
  • MPLS traffic engineering supports only a single IGP process/instance. Multiple IGP processes/instances are not supported and MPLS traffic engineering should not be configured in more than one IGP process/instance.

Information About MPLS TE Automatic Bandwidth Adjustment for TE Tunnels

MPLS TE Automatic Bandwidth Adjustment for TE Tunnels Overview

Traffic engineering autobandwidth samples the average output rate for each tunnel marked for automatic bandwidth adjustment. For each marked tunnel, the feature periodically (for example, once per day) adjusts the tunnel’s allocated bandwidth to be the largest sample for the tunnel since the last adjustment.

The frequency with which tunnel bandwidth is adjusted and the allowable range of adjustments is configurable on a per-tunnel basis. In addition, the sampling interval and the interval over which to average tunnel traffic to obtain the average output rate is user-configurable on a per-tunnel basis.

MPLS TE Automatic Bandwidth Adjustment for TE Tunnels Benefits

The automatic bandwidth feature allows you to configure and monitor the bandwidth for MPLS TE tunnels. If automatic bandwidth is configured for a tunnel, TE automatically adjusts the tunnel’s bandwidth.

          Configuring an MPLS Traffic Engineering Tunnel

          To configure an MPLS TE tunnel, perform the following task. The MPLS TE tunnel has two path setup options: a preferred explicit path and a backup dynamic path.


          Note


          The configuration applies only to the TE head-end node. The configuration applies to all nodes and interfaces in the network.

          DETAILED STEPS
             Command or ActionPurpose
            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 interface tunnel number


            Example:
            Router(config)# interface tunnel 1
             

            Configures a tunnel interface and enters interface configuration mode.

             
            Step 4 ip unnumbered interface-type interface-number


            Example:
            Router(config-if)# ip unnumbered loopback 0
             

            Gives the tunnel interface an IP address that is the same as that of interface Loopback0.

            • An MPLS TE tunnel interface should be unnumbered because it represents a unidirectional link.
            Note   

            This command is not effective until Lookback0 has been configured with an IP address.

             
            Step 5 tunnel destination ip-address


            Example:
            Router(config-if)# tunnel destination 10.3.3.3
             

            Specifies the destination for a tunnel.

            • The destination must be the MPLS TE router ID of the destination device.
             
            Step 6 tunnel mode mpls traffic-eng


            Example:
            Router(config-if)# tunnel mode mpls traffic-eng 
             

            Sets the encapsulation mode of the tunnel to MPLS TE.

             
            Step 7 tunnel mpls traffic-eng bandwidth bandwidth


            Example:
            Router(config-if)# tunnel mpls traffic-eng bandwidth 250
             

            Configures the bandwidth for the MPLS TE tunnel.

            • The bandwidth argument is the bandwidth, in kilobits per second, set for the MPLS TE tunnel. The range is from 1 to 4294967295. The default is 0.
            • If automatic bandwidth is configured for the tunnel, the tunnel mpls traffic-eng bandwidth command configures the initial tunnel bandwidth, which will be adjusted by the autobandwidth mechanism.
            Note   

            If you configure a tunnel’s bandwidth with the tunnel mpls traffic-eng bandwidth command and the minimum amount of automatic bandwidth with the tunnel mpls traffic-eng auto-bwcommand, the minimum amount of automatic bandwidth adjustment is the lower of those two configured values.

             
            Step 8 tunnel mpls traffic-eng path-option [protect] preference-number{dynamic | explicit | {name path-name | path-number}} [lockdown]


            Example:
            Router(config-if)# tunnel mpls traffic-eng path-option 10 explicit avoid-protected-link
             

            Configures the tunnel to use a named IP explicit path or a path dynamically calculated from the TE topology database.

            • A dynamic path is used if an explicit path is currently unavailable.
             
            Step 9 exit


            Example:
            Router(config-if)# exit
             

            Exits to global configuration mode.

             
            Step 10 exit


            Example:
            Router(config)# exit
             

            Exits to privileged EXEC mode.

             

            Troubleshooting Tips

            Each tunnel mpls traffic-eng auto-bw command supersedes the previous one. Therefore, if you want to specify multiple options for a tunnel, you must specify them all in a single tunnel mpls traffic-eng auto-bw command.

            Enabling Automatic Bandwidth Adjustment on a Platform

            To enable automatic bandwidth adjustment on a platform and initiate sampling the output rate for tunnels configured for bandwidth adjustment, perform the following task.


            Note


            This task is applicable only to the TE head-end router. The configuration applies to all locally-configured TE head-end interfaces.


            SUMMARY STEPS

              4.    no mpls traffic-eng auto-bw timers

              5.    exit


            DETAILED STEPS
               Command or ActionPurpose
              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 mpls traffic-eng auto-bw timers [frequency seconds]


              Example:
              Router(config)# mpls traffic-eng auto-bw timers frequency 300
               

              Enables automatic bandwidth adjustment on a platform and begins sampling the output rate for tunnels that have been configured for automatic bandwidth adjustment.

              • The frequency keyword specifies the interval, in seconds, for sampling the output rate of each tunnel configured for automatic bandwidth. The range is 1 through 604800. The recommended value is 300.
               
              Step 4 no mpls traffic-eng auto-bw timers


              Example:
              Router(config)# no mpls traffic-eng auto-bw timers
               

              (Optional) Disables automatic bandwidth adjustment on a platform.

              • Use the no version of the command, whichterminates output rate sampling and bandwidth adjustment for tunnels. In addition, the no form of the command restores the configured bandwidth for each tunnel where the configured bandwidth is determined as follows:
                • If the tunnel bandwidth was explicitly configured via the tunnel mpls traffic-eng bandwidth command after the running configuration was written to the startup configuration, the configured bandwidth is the bandwidth specified by that command.
                • Otherwise, the configured bandwidth is the bandwidth specified for the tunnel in the startup configuration.
               
              Step 5 exit


              Example:
              Router(config)# exit
               

              Exits to privileged EXEC mode.

                    In the command output:

                    • The auto-bw line indicates that automatic bandwidth adjustment is enabled for the tunnel.
                    • 300 is the time, in seconds, between bandwidth adjustments.
                    • 265 is the time, in seconds, remaining until the next bandwidth adjustment.
                    • 53 is the largest bandwidth sample since the last bandwidth adjustment.
                    • 13 is the last bandwidth adjustment and the bandwidth currently requested for the tunnel.
                    • The adjustment threshold is 5 percent.
                    • The overflow limit is 4.
                    • The overflow threshold is 25 percent.
                    • The overflow crossed is 1.


                    Example:
                    
                    
                            
                    Step 2   show running-config

                    Use this command to verify that the tunnel mpls traffic-eng auto bw command is as you expected. For example:



                    Example:
                    Router# show running-config
                    .
                    .
                    .
                    interface tunnel1
                      ip unnumbered loopback 0
                      tunnel destination 192.168.17.17 255.255.255.0
                      tunnel mode mpls traffic-eng
                      tunnel mpls traffic-eng bandwidth 1500
                      tunnel mpls traffic-eng priority 1 1
                      tunnel mpls traffic-eng path-option 1 dynamic

                    tunnel mpls traffic-eng auto bw max-bw 2000 min-bw 1000 !Enable automatic bandwidth



                    Example:
                    .
                    .
                    .
                    

                    The sample output from the show running-config command shows that the value 1500, in the tunnel mpls traffic-eng bandwidth 1500 command, changes after an adjustment is made.



                    Example:
                    
                    
                            

                    Configuration Examples for MPLS TE Automatic Bandwidth Adjustments for TE Tunnels

                    The figure below illustrates a sample MPLS topology. The following sections contain sample configuration examples to configure automatic bandwidth adjustment for MPLS TE tunnels originating on Router 1 and to enable automatic bandwidth adjustment for Tunnel 1.

                    Figure 1. Sample MPLS Traffic Engineering Tunnel Configuration

                    The examples omit some configuration required for MPLS TE, such as the required RSVP and Interior Gateway Protocol (IGP) (IS-IS or OSPF) configuration, because the purpose of these examples is to illustrate the configuration for automatic bandwidth adjustment.

                    Example: Configuring MPLS Traffic Engineering Automatic Bandwidth

                    The following example shows how to use the mpls traffic-eng auto-bw timers command to enable automatic bandwidth adjustment for Router 1. The command specifies that the output rate is to be sampled every 10 minutes for tunnels configured for automatic bandwidth adjustment.

                    configure terminal
                    !
                    ip cef distributed
                    mpls traffic-eng tunnels
                    mpls traffic-eng auto-bw timers frequency 600  !Enable automatic bandwidth adjustment
                    interface loopback 0
                    ip address 192.168.11.11 255.255.255.0

                    Example: Tunnel Configuration for Automatic Bandwidth

                    The following example shows how to use the tunnel mpls traffic-eng auto-bw command to enable automatic bandwidth adjustment for Tunnel 1. The command specifies a maximum allowable bandwidth of 2000 kbps, a minimum allowable bandwidth of 1000 kbps, and that the default automatic bandwidth adjustment frequency of once a day be used.

                    interface tunnel1
                      ip unnumbered loopback 0
                      tunnel destination 192.168.17.17 
                      tunnel mode mpls traffic-eng
                      tunnel mpls traffic-eng bandwidth 1500
                      tunnel mpls traffic-eng priority 1 1
                      tunnel mpls traffic-eng path-option 1 dynamic
                      tunnel mpls traffic-eng auto-bw max-bw 2000 min-bw 1000   !Enable automatic bandwidth
                                                                                !adjustment for Tunnel1

                    The MPLS Traffic Engineering Automatic Bandwidth Adjustment for TE Tunnels feature provides the means to automatically adjust the bandwidth allocation for traffic engineering tunnels based on their measured traffic load. The configured bandwidth in the running configuration is changed due to the automatic bandwidth behavior.

                    In Cisco IOS Release 12.2(33)SRE, this feature was introduced.

                    In Cisco IOS XE Release 3.8S, support was added for the Cisco ISR 4400 Series Routers.

                    In Cisco IOS XE Release 3.9S, support was added for the Cisco CSR 1000V.

                    The following commands were introduced or modified to support automatic bandwidth adjustment threshold and overflow threshold: mpls traffic-eng lsp attributes, show mpls traffic-eng tunnels, tunnel mpls traffic-eng auto-bw.
