IS-IS Caching of Redistributed Routes


The IS-IS Caching of Redistributed Routes feature improves Intermediate System-to-Intermediate System (IS-IS) convergence time when routes are being redistributed into IS-IS. This document introduces new commands for monitoring and maintaining IS-IS redistributed routes.

Information About IS-IS Caching of Redistributed Routes

The IS-IS Caching of Redistributed Routes feature is enabled by default. However, you should understand the concept in the following section:

Benefits of Caching of Redistributed Routes

Benefits of Caching of Redistributed Routes

Beginning with Cisco IOS Release 12.0(27)S, IS-IS caches routes that are redistributed from other routing protocols or from another IS-IS level into a local redistribution cache that is maintained by IS-IS. Caching occurs automatically and requires no configuration. The caching of redistributed routes improves IS-IS convergence time when routes are being redistributed into IS-IS.

How to Use the IS-IS Caching of Redistributed Routes Feature

This section contains the following procedure:

Monitoring the IS-IS Caching of Redistributed Routes Feature (optional)

Command Reference

This section documents the following new commands only:

clear isis rib redistribution

debug isis rib redistribution

show isis rib redistribution

clear isis rib redistribution

To clear some or all prefixes in the Intermediate System-to-Intermediate System (IS-IS) redistribution cache, use the clear isis rib redistribution command in privileged EXEC mode.

clear isis rib redistribution [level-1 | level-2] [network-prefix] [network-mask]

Syntax Description

level-1

(Optional) Clears Level 1 IS-IS redistributed prefixes from the redistribution cache.

level-2

(Optional) Clears Level 2 IS-IS redistributed prefixes from the redistribution cache.

network-prefix

(Optional) The network ID in the A.B.C.D format for the specific network prefix you want to clear from the redistribution Routing Information Base (RIB). If you do not provide a network mask for the prefix, the major net of the prefix will be used for the network mask.

network-mask

(Optional) The network ID in the A.B.C.D format for the network mask for the specific network prefix you want to clear from the RIB. If you do not provide a network mask for the prefix, the major net of the prefix will be used for the network mask.

In the following example, the debug isis rib redistribution command is used to display information about events that update the IS-IS redistribution cache. The output is self-explanatory.

Router# debug isis rib redistribution level-1 123

IS-IS IPv4 redistribution RIB debugging is on for access list 123 for L1

Router# router isis
Router(config-router)# redistribute connected level-1
Router(config)# access-list 123 permit ip 10.0.0.0 0.255.255.255 any

Nov 25 00:33:46.532: ISIS-RR:     redistributed to ISIS
Nov 25 00:33:46.532: ISIS-RR:   added    10.123.123.3/32 to L1 redist RIB: [Connected/0] 
tag 0 external

Nov 25 00:33:47.532: ISIS-RR: End of scanningL1 redist RIB

The following line indicates that the connected route 10.123.123.3/32 was added to the IS-IS level 1 local redistribution cache with cost 0, metric type external, and administrative tag of 0:

Nov 25 00:33:46.532: ISIS-RR:   added    10.123.123.3/32 to L1 redist RIB: [Connected/0] 
tag 0 external 

The following line indicates that the redistributed route 10.123.123.3/32 was advertised in an IS-IS link-state packet (LSP) as a level 1 redistributed route:

Nov 25 00:33:47.532: ISIS-RR:   adv 10.123.123.3/32 as L1 redist rout

Usage Guidelines

You can use the show isis rib redistribution command to verify that desired routes have been redistributed into Intermediate System-to-Intermediate System (IS-IS). The command output will show the network prefixes in the local redistribution cache.

Examples

In the following example, the output from the show isis rib redistribution command verifies that Internet Protocol version 4 (IPv4) routes have been redistributed into IS-IS. The output is self-explanatory.

Router# show isis rib redistribution

IPv4 redistribution RIB for IS-IS process 
====== Level 1 ======
10.3.3.0/24
  [Connected/0] external 
10.0.18.48/28
  [Connected/0] external 
====== Level 2 ======

The following lines indicate that the prefix 10.3.3.0 with a mask 24 was redistributed from the connected routing protocol into IS-IS as a level 1 route, cost 0, with a metric type external:

10.3.3.0/24
  [Connected/0] external 

The following lines show that the connected routing protocol owns the prefix 10.0.18.48 and that the metric for the route is 28:

10.0.18.48/28
  [Connected/0] external
