MPLS Traffic Engineering—Fast Reroute MIB


First Published: March 30, 2001
Last Updated: May 4, 2009

The MPLS Traffic Engineering—Fast Reroute MIB provides Simple Network Management Protocol (SNMP)-based network management of the Multiprotocol Label Switching (MPLS) Fast Reroute (FRR) feature in Cisco IOS XE software.

The Fast Reroute MIB has the following features:

Notifications can be created and queued.

Command-line interface (CLI) commands enable notifications, and specify the IP address to where the notifications will be sent.

The configuration of the notifications can be written into nonvolatile memory.

The MIB includes objects describing features within MPLS FRR, and it includes the following tables:

cmplsFrrConstTable

cmplsFrrLogTable

cmplsFrrFacRouteDBTable

The MIB also includes scalar objects (that is, objects that are not in a table). For more information, see the "FRR MIB Scalar Objects" section.

Feature Design of the MPLS Traffic Engineering—Fast Reroute MIB

The FRR MIB enables standard, SNMP-based network management of FRR in Cisco IOS XE software. This capability requires that SNMP agent code executes on a designated network management station (NMS) in the network. The NMS serves as the medium for user interaction with the network management objects in the MIB.

The FRR MIB is based on the Internet Engineering Task Force (IETF) draft MIB specification draft-ietf-mpls-fastreroute-mib-02.txt. The IETF draft MIB, which undergoes revisions periodically, is evolving toward becoming a standard. The Cisco implementation of the FRR MIB is expected to track the evolution of the IETF draft MIB, and may change accordingly.

Slight differences between the IETF draft MIB and the implementation of FRR within Cisco IOS XE software require some minor translations between the FRR MIB objects and the internal data structures of Cisco IOS XE software. These translations are accomplished by the SNMP agent, which runs in the background on the NMS workstation as a low priority process and provides a management interface to Cisco IOS XE software.

You can use an SNMP agent to access FRR MIB objects using standard SNMP GET operations. All the objects in the FRR MIB follow the conventions defined in the IETF draft MIB.

Functional Structure of the MPLS Traffic Engineering—Fast Reroute MIB

The SNMP agent code supporting the FRR MIB follows the existing model for such code in Cisco IOS XE software and is, in part, generated by the Cisco IOS XE tool set, based on the MIB source code. The basis for the generated code is the Cisco IOS XE version of the FRR MIB CISCO-ietf-frr-mib.

The SNMP agent code, which has a layered structure that is common to MIB support code in Cisco IOS XE software, consists of the following layers:

Platform-independent layer—This layer is generated primarily by the MIB development Cisco IOS XE tool set and incorporates platform- and implementation-independent functions. These functions handle SNMP standard functionality in the context of the specific MIB. This layer handles indexes and range or enumeration value checks for GET, GET-NEXT, and SET SNMP operations. A function is generated for each SNMP table or group of objects. This layer calls into the next layer.

Application interface layer—The Cisco IOS XE tool set generates the function names and template code for MIB objects.

Application-specific layer—This layer provides the mechanism for retrieving relevant data from the managed application layer. It includes an entry point function for each table. This function calls two other functions; one that searches the TE tunnel database that RSVP maintains for the relevant data according to the indexes, and another function that fills the data into the structure.

Managed application layer—This layer includes all the structures and mechanisms, and is managed by the MIB.

System Flow of SNMP Protocol Requests and Response Messages

All SNMP protocol requests and response messages are ultimately handled by the SNMP master agent. When such a message is received on a router, the master agent parses the requests and identifies the MIB to which the request refers. The master agent then queries the subagent responsible for the MIB with a GET, GET-NEXT, or SET request. The FRR MIB subagent retrieves the appropriate data, and returns it to the master agent. The master agent is then responsible for returning an SNMP response to the NMS. All queries occur within the IP SNMP Cisco IOS XE process, which runs as a low priority task.

FRR MIB Scalar Objects

Scalar objects are objects that are not in tables. A scalar object has one instance (that is, one occurrence).

Table 1 describes the FRR MIB scalar objects.

Table 1 Scalar Objects 

MIB Object
Function

cmplsFrrDetourIncoming

Number of detour link-state packets (LSPs) entering the device. This object returns 0 because cmplsFrrConstProtectionMethod is set to facilityBackup(1).

cmplsFrrDetourOutgoing

Number of detour LSPs leaving the device. This object returns 0 because cmplsFrrConstProtectionMethod is set to facilityBackup(1).

cmplsFrrDetourOriginating

Number of detour LSPs originating from the device. This object returns 0 because cmplsFrrConstProtectionMethod is set to facilityBackup(1).

cmplsFrrSwitchover

Number of tunnels that are being backed up because cmplsFrrConstProtectionMethod is set to facilityBackup(1).

cmplsFrrNumOfConfIfs

Number of MPLS interfaces FRR configured for protection; 0 indicates that LSPs traversing any interface can be protected.

cmplsFrrActProtectedIfs

Number of interfaces FRR is protecting because cmplsFrrConstProtectionMethod is set to facilityBackup(1).

cmplsFrrConfProtectingTuns

Number of backup Fast Reroute-protected tunnels configured because cmplsFrrConstProtectionMethod is set to facilityBackup(1).

cmplsFrrActProtectedTuns

Number of tunnels protected by the Fast Reroute feature. This object returns 0 because cmplsFrrConstProtectionMethod is set to facilityBackup(1).

cmplsFrrActProtectedLSPs

Number of LSPs that FRR is protecting. If cmplsFrrConstProtectionMethod is set to facilityBackup(1), this object returns 0.

cmplsFrrConstProtectionMethod

This object always returns facilityBackup(1) because Cisco IOS XE supports only the facility backup protection method.

cmplsFrrNotifsEnabled

A value that indicates whether FRR notifications defined in this MIB are enabled or disabled. This object returns True(1) for enabled, or False(2) for disabled. The default is that notifications are disabled.

cmplsFrrLogTableMaxEntries

Maximum number of entries allowed in the FRR log table.

cmplsFrrLogTableCurrEntries

Current number of entries in the FRR log table. This object always returns 0.

cmplsFrrNotifMaxRate

Maximum interval rate between FRR MIB notifications. This object always returns 0.


FRR MIB Notification Generation Events

Notifications are issued after particular FRR events occur.

When you enable FRR MIB notification functionality by issuing the snmp-server enable traps mpls fast-reroute command, FRR events generate notification messages that are sent to a designated NMS in the network to signal the occurrence of specific events in Cisco IOS XE software.

The FRR MIB objects involved in FRR status transitions and event notifications include cmplsFrrProtected. This message is sent to an NMS if there is a major TE tunnel change (that is, fast rerouting of TE tunnels).

FRR MIB Notification Specification

Notifications are issued after particular FRR events occur.

Each FRR notification has a generic type identifier and an enterprise-specific type identifier for identifying the notification type. The generic type for all FRR notifications is "enterprise Specific" because this is not one of the generic notification types defined for SNMP. The enterprise-specific type is 1 for cmplsFrrProtected.

Each notification contains the following objects from the FRR MIB so that the FRR tunnel can be easily identified:

cmplsFrrConstNumProtectingTunOnIf

cmplsFrrConstNumProtectedTunOnIf

cmplsFrrConstBandwidth

Upon being invoked, the appropriate FRR interface indexes have already been retrieved by existing FRR code. The FRR interfaces are then used to fill in data for the three objects included in the notification.

FRR MIB Notification Monitoring

Notifications are issued after particular FRR events occur.

When FRR MIB notifications are enabled (see the snmp-server enable traps command), notification messages relating to specific FRR events within Cisco IOS XE software are generated and sent to a specified NMS in the network. Any utility that supports SNMPv1 or SNPv2 notifications can receive notification messages.

To monitor FRR MIB notifications, log in to an NMS that supports a utility that displays SNMP notifications, and start the display utility.

MIB Tables in the MPLS Traffic Engineering—Fast Reroute MIB

The FRR MIB consists of the following tables:

cmplsFrrConstTable

cmplsFrrLogTable

cmplsFrrFacRouteDBTable

The tables access various data structures to obtain information regarding detours, the FRR database, and logging.

cmplsFrrConstTable

cmplsFrrConstTable displays the configuration of an FRR-enabled tunnel and the characteristics of its accompanying backup tunnels. For each protected tunnel, there can be multiple backup tunnels.

The table is indexed by the following:

cmplsFrrConstIfIndex

cmplsFrrConstTunnelIndex

cmplsFrrConstTunnelInstance

Table 2 describes the MIB objects for cmplsFrrConstTable.

Table 2 cmplsFrrConstTable Objects  

MIB Object
Function

cmplsFrrConstIfIndex

Uniquely identifies an interface on which FRR is configured. If an index has a value of 0, the configuration applies to all interfaces on the device on which the FRR feature can operate.

cmplsFrrConstTunnelIndex

Tunnel for which FRR is requested.

cmplsFrrConstTunnelInstance

Tunnel for which FRR is requested. The value always is 0 because only tunnel heads are represented, and tunnel heads have an instance value of 0.

cmplsFrrConstSetupPrio

Setup priority of the backup tunnel.

cmplsFrrConstHoldingPrio

Holding priority of the backup tunnel.

cmplsFrrConstInclAnyAffinity

Attribute bits that must be set for the tunnel to traverse a link.

cmplsFrrConstInclAllAffinity

Attribute bits that must not be set for the tunnel to traverse a link.

cmplsFrrConstExclAllAffinity

A link satisfies the exclude-all constraint only if the link contains none of the administrative groups specified in the constraint.

cmplsFrrConstHopLimit

The maximum number of hops that the backup tunnel can traverse.

cmplsFrrConstBandwidth

The bandwidth of the backup tunnels for this tunnel, in thousands of bits per second (kbps).

cmplsFrrConstRowStatus

Creates, modifies, and deletes a row in this table.


cmplsFrrLogTable

cmplsFrrLogTable is indexed by the object cmplsFrrLogIndex. The index corresponds to a log entry in the FRR feature's show mpls traffic-eng fast-reroute log reroutes command. That show command stores up to 32 entries at a time. If entries are added, the oldest entry is overwritten with new log information.

cmplsFrrLogTable can store up to 32 entries at a time, overwriting older entries as newer ones are added. The index cmplsFrrLogIndex is incremented to give each log table entry of the MIB a unique index value. Therefore, it is possible to have indexes greater than 32 even though only 32 entries are displaying.

Table 3 describes the MIB objects for cmplsFrrLogTable.

Table 3 cmplsFrrLogTable Objects  

MIB Object
Function

cmplsFrrLogIndex

Number of the FRR event.

cmplsFrrLogEventTime

Number of milliseconds that elapsed from bootstrap time to the time that the event occurred.

cmplsFrrLogInterface

Identifies the interface that was affected by this FRR event. The value can be set to 0 if mplsFrrConstProtectionMethod is set to oneToOneBackup(0).

cmplsFrrLogEventType

The type of FRR event that occurred. The object returns Protected or Other.

cmplsFrrLogEventDuration

Duration of the event, in milliseconds.

cmplsFrrLogEventReasonString

Implementation-specific explanation of the event. The object returns interface down event or interface other event.


cmplsFrrFacRouteDBTable

The following indexes specify which interface and tunnel are being protected by the FRR feature:

cmplsFrrFacRouteProtectedIfIndex

cmplsFrrFacRouteProtectedTunIndex

The following indexes specify the backup tunnel that provides protection to the protected tunnel:

cmplsFrrFacRouteProtectedIfIndex

cmplsFrrFacRouteProtectingTunIndex

cmplsFrrFacRouteProtectedTunIndex

cmplsFrrFacRouteProtectedTunInstance

cmplsFrrFacRouteProtectedTunIngressLSRId

cmplsFrrFacRouteProtectedTunEgressLSRId

This version of the MIB will attempt to leverage the work already done for the MPLS TE MIB because it contains similar lookup functions for TE tunnels.

Table 4 describes the MIB objects for cmplsFrrFacRouteDBTable.

Table 4 cmplsFrrFacRouteDBTable Objects
