Configuring ITU-T Y.1731 Fault Management Functions


First Published: October 20, 2008
Last Updated: February 5, 2011

The ITU-Y.1731 Fault Management Functions feature provides new functions for fault and performance management to serve the needs of service providers in large networks. These new functions extend Ethernet Alarm Indication Signal (ETH-AIS) and Ethernet Remote Defect Indication (ETH-RDI) to include fault detection, fault verification, and fault isolation for large Ethernet Metropolitan-Area Networks (MANs) and Wide-Area Networks (WANs).

Business Requirements

Network topology and network administration have been evaluated.

Business and service policies have been established.

A Server Maintenance End Point (SMEP) needs to support ETH-AIS function.

Connectivity Fault Management (CFM) needs to be configured and enabled for Y.1731 Fault Management support.

Maintenance Intermediate Point (MIP) configuration is required as AIS messages are only generated on the interface which has MIP configured.

Restrictions for Configuring ITU-T Y.1731 Fault Management Functions

Because of a port-ASIC hardware limitation, CFM cannot coexist with the Per VLAN Spanning Tree (PVST) protocol, and CFM cannot operate with the following line cards on the same system:

FI_WS_X6196_RJ45

FI_WS_X6196_RJ21

FI_WS_X6548_RJ45

FI_WS_X6548_RJ21

CFM loopback messages are not confined within a maintenance domain according to their maintenance level. The impact of not having CFM loopback messages confined to their maintenance levels occurs at these levels:

Architecture—CFM layering is violated for loopback messages.

Deployment—A user may potentially misconfigure a network and have loopback messages succeed.

Security—A malicious device that recognizes devices' MAC addresses and levels may potentially explore a network topology that should be transparent.

Routed interfaces are supported only in Cisco IOS Release 12.4(11)T.

CFM is not fully supported on a Multiprotocol Label Switching (MPLS) Provider Edge (PE) device. There is no interaction between CFM and an Ethernet over MPLS (EoMPLS) pseudowire. A CFM packet can be transparently passed like regular data packets only via pseudowire, with the following restriction:

For Policy Feature Card (PFC) based EoMPLS, which uses a Cisco Catalyst LAN card as the MPLS uplink port, a CFM packet can be transparently passed via an EoMPLS pseudowire like regular data packets. The EoMPLS endpoint interface, however, cannot be a Maintenance End Point (MEP) or an MIP, although a CFM MEP or MIP can be supported on regular Layer 2 switchport interfaces.

CFM configuration is not supported on an EtherChannel in FastEthernet Channel (FEC) mode.

The High Availability features, Non-Stop Forwarding and Stateful Switchover (NSF/SSO) Support, in CFM 802.1ag/1.0d and In Service Software Upgrade (ISSU) Support in CFM 802.1ag/1.0d are not supported on a Customer Edge (CE) device.

The NSF/SSO Support in CFM 802.1ag/1.0d feature is not supported for the trace route and error databases because the Y.1731 Fault Management HA error database is synchronized between active and standby as both CFM HA and Y.1731 Fault Management were released in Cisco IOS Software Release 12.2SRD.

ETH-AIS General Overview

When a MEP detects a connectivity fault at a specific level, it will multicast AIS in the direction away from the detected failure at the immediate client Maintenance Association (MA) level.

AIS is generated by a MEP for each VLAN or server on the network because MEPs monitor the whole physical link. A MEP could be monitoring a VLAN, Ethernet Virtual Connection (EVC), or a SMEP where link up or link down and 802.3ah interworking are supported.

AIS causes the receiving MEPs to suppress the traps so the Network Management System (NMS) does not receive an excessive number of redundant traps for a particular fault and also so that clients are asynchronously informed regarding faults.

As AIS cannot determine which remote peer has lost connectivity in a multipoint scenario all peer MEPs enter AIS state and suppress alarms.


Note Use of AIS is not recommended in networks that have independent restoration capability.


ETH-AIS Transmission, Reception, and Processing Overview

ETH-AIS is used to suppress alarms following detection of defect conditions at the server layer or server sublayer. Transmission of frames with ETH-AIS information can be enabled or disabled on a MEP. Frames with ETH-AIS information can be issued at the client maintenance level by a MEP or SMEP upon detecting defect conditions. For example, the defect conditions may include those in the following sections:

Signal Fail Conditions When Ethernet Continuity Check Is Enabled

AIS Condition When ETH-CC Is Disabled


Note Due to independent restoration capabilities provided within Spanning Tree Protocol (STP) environments, ETH-AIS is not expected to be applied in STP environments but ETH-AIS transmission can be configured in STP environments.


For multipoint Ethernet connectivity, a MEP cannot determine the specific server layer or server sublayer that has encountered the defect conditions upon receiving a frame with ETH-AIS information, it also cannot determine the associated subset of its peer MEPs for which it should suppress alarms because the received ETH-AIS information does not contain that information. Therefore, upon reception of a frame with ETH-AIS information, the MEP will suppress alarms for all peer MEPs whether there is still connectivity or not. However, for a point-to-point Ethernet connection, a MEP has only a single peer MEP, so there is no ambiguity regarding the peer MEP for which it should suppress alarms when it receives the ETH-AIS information.

Only a MEP or an SMEP can be configured to issue frames with ETH-AIS information. Upon detecting a defect condition, the MEP can immediately start transmitting periodic frames with ETH-AIS information at a configured client maintenance level, which in Cisco IOS software is sent at the Maintenance Intermediate Point (MIP) level configured on the interface. A MEP continues to transmit frames with ETH-AIS information until the defect condition is removed. Upon receiving a frame with ETH-AIS information a MEP detects AIS condition and suppresses loss-of-continuity alarms associated with all its peer MEPs. A MEP can only resume loss-of-continuity alarm generation when the MEP exits the AIS condition.

Signal Fail Conditions When Ethernet Continuity Check Is Enabled

Mismerge Condition

A MEP detects mismerge when it receives a Continuity Check Message (CCM) frame with a correct maintenance level but incorrect maintenance ID that indicates that frames from a different service instance are merged with the service instance represented by the MEP's own maintenance ID.


Note In Cisco IOS Software mismerge condition will be a cross-connect error.


Unexpected MEP Conditions

A MEP detects unexpected MEP conditions when it receives a CCM frame with a correct maintenance level, a correct maintenance ID, and an unexpected MEP ID that includes the MEP's own MEP ID. Determination of unexpected MEP ID is possible when the MEP maintains a list of its peer MEP IDs. A list of peer MEP IDs must be configured on each MEP during provisioning. This defect condition is most likely caused by misconfiguration.


Note In Cisco IOS Software unexpected MEP conditions will be cross-check or configuration errors. A configuration error occurs when the Maintenance Point ID (MPID) received through CCM is the same as the MPID configured on the MEP.


Unexpected maintenance level condition—A MEP detects unexpected maintenance level when it receives a CCM frame with the incorrect maintenance level.

Unexpected period condition—A MEP detects unexpected period when it receives a CCM frame with a correct maintenance level, a correct MPID, and a correct MEP ID, but with a period field value different from the MEP's own CCM transmission period.

Signal fail condition—Signal fail condition may be declared by the server layer termination function to notify the SMEP about a defect condition in the server layer.
Signal fail conditions in Cisco IOS Software due to CCM are as follows:

Cross-connect error

Configuration error

Loop error

MEP unknown

MEP missing

AIS Condition When ETH-CC Is Disabled

Signal fail conditions will cause AIS defect conditions for the MEP, resulting in the MEPs receiving an AIS frame.

AIS Transmission

Upon detecting a defect condition a MEP will transmit frames to its peer MEPs in the opposite direction to the fault. The frequency of transmission of AIS frames is based on the AIS transmission period. The first AIS frame must always be transmitted immediately following the detection of a defect condition.


Note An AIS transmission period of 1 second is recommended.


The client layer or client sublayer may consist of multiple MAs that should be notified to suppress alarms resulting from defect conditions detected by the server layer or server sublayer MEP. Upon detecting the signal fail condition the MEP will send AIS frames to each of the client layer or sublayer MAs. The first AIS frame for all client layer or sublayer MAs must be transmitted within 1 second of detection of the defect condition.


Note To support ETH-AIS across all 4094 VLANs that CFM supports another AIS transmission period of 1 minute is also supported.


AIS Reception

Upon receiving an AIS frame, a MEP examines it to ensure that the MA level corresponds to its own MA level. The period field indicates the period at which the AIS frames can be expected. Following detection of AIS defect condition, if no AIS frames are received within an interval of 3.5 times the transmission period, the MEP clears the AIS defect condition.

Dying Gasp Generation

Dying Gasp is an unrecoverable condition. This type of condition is vendor specific. A notification about the condition may be sent immediately and continuously.

Dying Gasp is generated in following conditions:

Link down caused by administration down.

Power failure.

Reload.

Administratively disabling 802.3ah.


Note Administratively disabling 802.3ah is not traffic disrupting and should not generate AIS. But in the absence of a reason field when interworking with routers other than Cisco routers, disabling will always generate AIS.


AIS Interworking

The following conditions impact SMEP AIS conditions:

Link down events cause the SMEP to enter AIS condition and generate AIS frames for all services by default at the immediate client MA level.

Link up events cause the SMEP to exit AIS condition and stop generating AIS frames.

Local fault detection due to Dying gasp, link fault and critical 802.3ah Remote Fault Indication (RFI). When 802.3ah is reestablished the SMEP exits AIS condition and stops generating AIS frames.

Local fault detection due to crossing of high threshold whose configurable action is error disabling the interface.

RFI received from Dying gasp, link fault or critical event.

If the detected fault is due to Dying gasp, the link will go down in both directions creating AIS and RDI frame flow as shown in Figure 1.

Figure 1 AIS/RDI Frame Flow with Fault on Both rx and tx

ETH-RDI

ETH-RDI can be used by a MEP to communicate to its peer MEPs that a defect condition has been encountered. ETH-RDI is used only when Ethernet OAM Continuity Check (ETH-CC) transmission is enabled.

ETH-RDI has the following two applications:

Single-ended fault management—The receiving MEP detects a RDI defect condition, which gets correlated with other defect conditions in this MEP and may become a fault cause. The absence of received ETH-RDI information in a single MEP indicates the absence of defects in the entire MA.

Contribution to far-end performance monitoring—It reflects that there was a defect condition in the far end, which is used as an input to the performance monitoring process.

A MEP that is in a defect condition transmits frames with ETH-RDI information. Upon receiving frames with ETH-RDI information, a MEP determines that its peer MEP has encountered a defect condition. However, for multipoint Ethernet connectivity, a MEP, upon receiving frames with ETH-RDI information, cannot determine the associated subset of its peer MEPs with which the MEP transmitting RDI information encounters defect conditions, as the transmitting MEP itself does not always have that information.

CCM Information

CFM continuity check messages (CCMs) are messages exchanged among MEPs. They allow MEPs to discover other MEPs within a domain and allow MIPs to discover MEPs.

CFM CCMs have the following characteristics:

Transmitted at a configurable periodic interval by MEPs. The interval can be from 10 seconds to 65535 seconds, the default is 30.

Contain a configurable hold time value to indicate to the receiver the validity of the message. The default hold time value is 3.5 times the transmit interval.

Catalogued by MIPs at the same maintenance level.

Terminated by remote MEPs at the same maintenance level.

Unidirectional and do not solicit a response.

Carries the status of the port on which the MEP is configured.

CCM with ETH-RDI Reception

Upon receiving a CCM frame, a MEP examines it to ensure that its MA Level corresponds to its configured MA Level and detects RDI condition if the RDI field is set. For a point-to-point Ethernet connection, a MEP can clear the RDI condition when it receives the first CCM frame from its peer MEP with the RDI field cleared. For multipoint Ethernet connectivity, a MEP can clear the RDI condition when it receives the CCM frames from its entire list of peer MEPs with the RDI fields cleared.

How to Configure ITU-T Y.1731 Fault Management Functions

Y.1731 fault management enhancements consist of ETH-AIS and ETH-RDI. Both enhancements are enabled by default when CFM is configured but each is enabled by a separate command during CFM configuration.

ETH-AIS is enabled by default by the ethernet cfm enable command.

ETH-RDI is enabled by default by the ethernet cfm cc enable level command.

Perform this task to change the default configuration.
