BGP Dynamic Update Peer-Groups


The BGP Dynamic Update Peer-Groups feature introduces a new algorithm that dynamically calculates and optimizes update-groups of neighbors that share the same outbound policies and can share the same update messages. In previous versions of Cisco IOS software, Border Gateway Protocol (BGP) update messages were grouped together based on peer-group configurations. This method of grouping updates limited outbound policies and specific-session configurations. The BGP Dynamic Update Peer-Group feature separates update-group replication from peer-group configuration, which improves convergence time and flexibility of neighbor configuration.

Information About BGP Dynamic Update Peer-Groups

To support this feature, you must understand the following concepts:

BGP Update Generation and Dynamic Update Peer-Groups

BGP Dynamic Update Peer-Groups and BGP Configuration Using Peer Templates

BGP Dynamic Update Peer-Group Configuration

BGP Update Generation and Dynamic Update Peer-Groups

In previous versions of Cisco IOS software, BGP update messages were grouped based on peer-group configurations. This method of grouping neighbors for BGP update message generation reduced the amount of system processing resources needed to process the routing table. This method, however, had the following limitations:

All neighbors that shared the same peer-group configuration also had to share the same outbound routing policies.

All neighbors had to belong to the same peer-group and address-family. Neighbors configured in different peer-groups cannot belong to different address-families.

These limitations existed to balance optimal update generation and replication against peer-group configuration. These limitations also caused the network operator to configure smaller peer-groups, which reduced the efficiency of update message generation.

The introduction of the BGP Dynamic Update Peer-Groups feature separates BGP update generation from peer-group configuration. The BGP Dynamic Update Peer-Groups feature introduces an algorithm that dynamically calculates BGP update-group membership based on outbound routing policies. This feature does not require any configuration by the network operator. Optimal BGP update message generation occurs automatically and independently. BGP neighbor configuration is no longer restricted by outbound routing policies, and update-groups can belong to different address families.

BGP Dynamic Update Peer-Groups and BGP Configuration Using Peer Templates

The BGP Dynamic Update Peer-Groups feature was introduced with the BGP Configuration Using Peer Templates feature. The BGP Dynamic Peer-Groups feature improves the performance of BGP update message generation. The BGP Configuration Using Peer Templates feature improves the flexibility of BGP neighbor configuration through the introduction of peer-policy and peer-session configuration templates. Peer-policy configuration templates are used to configure policy-related commands. Peer-session configuration templates are used for the configuration of general session commands. Peer configuration templates support inheritance and more robust and flexible configurations.

With the configuration of the BGP Configuration Using Templates feature and the support of the BGP Dynamic Update Peer-Groups features, the network operator no longer needs to configure peer-groups in BGP and can benefit from improved configuration flexibility and system performance. For more information about the BGP Configuration Using Templates feature, refer to the BGP Configuration Using Peer Templates document.

BGP Dynamic Update Peer-Group Configuration

The BGP Dynamic Update Peer-Group feature requires no configuration and occurs automatically. When a change to outbound policy occurs, the router automatically recalculates update-group memberships and applies the changes by triggering an outbound soft reset after a 1 minute timer expires. This behavior is designed to provide the network operator with time to change the configuration if a mistake is made. You can manually enable an outbound soft reset before the timer expires by entering the clear ip bgp ip-address soft out command.


Note In Cisco IOS Release 12.0(25)S, 12.3(2)T, and prior releases the update group recalculation delay timer is set to 3 minutes.


For the best optimization of BGP update-group generation, we recommend that the network operator keeps outbound routing policy the same for neighbors that have similar outbound policies. This feature introduces new commands for monitoring and maintaining BGP update-groups. For more information about the new commands, see the section "How to Monitor and Maintain BGP Dynamic Update Peer-Groups."

Usage Guidelines

The clear ip bgp update-group command is used to clear BGP update group member sessions. If no keywords or arguments are specified, entering this command will recalculate all update groups. Specific index numbers for update groups and information about update-group membership is displayed in the output of the show ip bgp update-group and debug ip bgp groups commands.

When a change to outbound policy occurs, the BGP routing process will automatically recalculate update-group memberships and apply changes by triggering an outbound soft reset after a 1-minute timer expires. This behavior is designed to provide the network operator with time to change the configuration before the soft reset is initiated. You can immediately initiate the outbound soft reset before the timer expires by entering the clear ip bgp ip-address soft out command or immediately initiate a hard reset by entering the clear ip bgp ip-address command.


Note In Cisco IOS Release 12.0(25)S, 12.3(2)T, and prior releases, the update group recalculation delay timer is set to 3 minutes.


Examples

In the following example, the membership of the 10.0.0.1 peer is cleared from an update group:

Router# clear ip bgp update-group 10.0.0.1 

In the following example, update-group information for all peers in the index 1 update group is cleared:

Router# clear ip bgp update-group 1 

In the following example, update-group information for all MDT address family session peers in the index 6 update group is cleared:

Router# clear ip bgp ipv4 mdt update-group 6

Glossary

dynamic peer-group—Another name for an update-group.

peer-group—A group of neighbors, calculated at configuration time, that share the same outbound policies and can be replicated in the same updates.

peer-policy template—Peer policy templates are used to used group and apply the configuration of commands that are applied within specific address-families and NLRI configuration mode.

peer-session template—Peer session templates are used to group and apply the configuration of general session commands that are common to all address-family and Network Layer Reachability Information (NLRI) configuration modes.

peer-template—A configuration pattern that can be applied to neighbors that share common policies. Peer templates are reusable and support inheritance, allowing the network operator to group and apply distinct neighbor configurations for BGP neighbors that share common policies, and define very complex configuration patterns through the ability of a peer template to inherit configurations from other peer templates. There are two types of peer templates: "policy-templates" and "session-templates."

update-group—Like a peer-group, an update-group is a group of neighbors, calculated at configuration time, that share the same outbound policies and can be replicated in the same updates. However, update-groups are calculated dynamically and are not restricted by outbound policies.
