IS-IS MTR for Multicast Address Family

IS-IS MTR for Multicast Address Family

The IS-IS MTR for Multicast Address Family feature enables Intermediate System to Intermediate System (IS-IS) protocol to support Multitopology Routing (MTR) in the following ways:

  • Advertise topology-specific routes to protocol peers

  • Perform best path calculation on multiple topologies

  • Update routes for each of the supported topologies in the global Routing Information Base (RIB)

  • Support configuration commands related to MTR

  • Support multiple multicast topologies

Information About IS-IS MTR for Multicast Address Family

IS-IS MTR for Multicast Address Family Overview

The IS-IS MTR for Multicast Address Family feature supports multiple IPv4 multicast topologies, which are incongruent from unicast topologies in the global address space.

Routing Protocol Support for MTR

You must enable IP routing on the device for Multitopology Routing (MTR) to operate. MTR supports static and dynamic routing in Cisco software. You can enable dynamic routing per topology to support interdomain and intradomain routing. Route calculation and forwarding are independent for each topology. MTR support is integrated into Cisco software for the following protocols:
  • Enhanced Interior Gateway Routing Protocol (EIGRP)
  • Integrated Intermediate System-to-Intermediate System (IS-IS)

You must apply the per-topology configuration in router address family configuration mode of the global routing process (router configuration mode). The address family and the subaddress family are specified when the device enters address family configuration mode. You can specify the topology name and topology ID by entering the topology command in address family configuration mode. You can configure each topology with a unique topology ID under the routing protocol. The topology ID is used to identify and group Network Layer Reachability Information (NLRI) for each topology in updates for a given protocol. In EIGRP and IS-IS, you enter the topology ID during the first configuration of the topology command for a class-specific topology.

You can configure class-specific topologies with metrics that are different than the base topology. Interface metrics configured on the base topology can be inherited by the class-specific topology. Inheritance occurs if no explicit inheritance metric is configured in the class-specific topology. By default, interfaces are not included in nonbase topologies. For routing protocol support for EIGRP and IS-IS, you must explicitly configure a nonbase topology on an interface. You can override the default behavior by using the all-interfaces command in address family topology configuration mode. The all-interfaces command causes the nonbase topology to be configured on all interfaces of the device that are part of the default address space in which the topology is configured.
