OSPFv3 Commands on Cisco IOX XR Software


This chapter describes the commands used to configure and monitor the IP Version 6 (IPv6) Open Shortest Path First Version 3 (OSPFv3) routing protocol.

For detailed information about OSPFv3 concepts, configuration tasks, and examples, refer to the Implementing OSPF on Cisco IOS XR Software configuration guide.

address-family (OSPFv3)

To enter address family configuration mode for Open Shortest Path First Version 3 (OSPFv3), use the address-family command in the router ospv3 configuration mode. To disable address family configuration mode, use the no form of this command.

address-family ipv6 [unicast]

no address-family ipv6 [unicast]

Syntax Description

ipv6

Specifies IP Version 6 (IPv6) address prefixes.

unicast

(Optional) Specifies unicast address prefixes.


Defaults

An address family is not specified.

Command Modes

Examples

The following example shows how to configure the OSPFv3 router process with IPv6 unicast address prefixes:

RP/0/RP0/CPU0:router(config)# router ospfv3 1
RP/0/RP0/CPU0:router(config-ospfv3)# address-family ipv6 unicast

area (OSPFv3)

To configure an Open Shortest Path First Version 3 (OSPFv3) area, use the area command in router ospfv3 configuration mode. To remove an OSPFv3 area, use the no form of this command.

area area-id

no area area-id

Syntax Description

area-id

Identifier of an OSPFv3 area. The area-id argument can be specified as either a decimal value or as an IPv4 address.


Defaults

No OSPFv3 areas are defined.

authentication (OSPFv3)

To enable plain text, Message Digest 5 (MD5) authentication, or null authentication for an Open Shortest Path First Version 3 (OSPFv3) interface, use the authentication command in the appropriate mode. To remove such authentication, use the no form of this command.

authentication {ipsec spi spi-value {md5 | sha1} [clear | encrypted] password | disable}

no authentication

Syntax Description

ipsec

Specifies IP Security (IPSec).

spi spi-value

Specifies a security policy index (SPI) value. Range is 256 to 4294967295.

md5

Enables Message Digest 5 (MD5) authentication.

sha1

Enables SHA1 authentication.

clear

(Optional) Specifies that the key be unencrypted.

encrypted

(Optional) Specifies that the key be encrypted using a two-way algorithm.

password

Any contiguous string of characters up to 8 bytes in length that can be entered from the keyboard.

disable

Disables authentication for OSPFv3 packets.


Defaults

If this command is not specified in interface configuration mode, then the interface adopts the authentication parameter specified by the area.
If this command is not specified in area configuration mode, then the interface adopts the authentication parameter specified for the process.
If this command is not specified at any level, then the interface does not use authentication.

1234567890abcdef1234567890abcdef

auto-cost (OSPFv3)

To control how the Open Shortest Path First Version 3 (OSPFv3) protocol calculates default metrics for an interface, use the auto-cost command in router ospfv3 configuration mode. To set link cost based only on the interface type, use the disable form of this command. To re-enable OSPFv3 metric calculation for an interface according to the bandwidth of the interface, use the no form of this command.

auto-cost [reference-bandwidth mbps | disable]

no auto-cost [reference-bandwidth mbps | disable]

Syntax Description

reference-bandwidth mbps

(Optional) Sets the rate in Mbps (bandwidth). Range is 1 to 4294967.

disable

(Optional) Sets the link cost based only on the interface type.


Defaults

mbps: 100 Mbps

Usage Guidelines

To use this command, you must be in a user group associated with a task group that includes the proper task IDs.. For detailed information about user groups and task IDs, see the Configuring AAA Services on Cisco IOS XR Software module of the Cisco IOS XR System Security Configuration Guide.

By default OSPFv3 calculates the OSPFv3 metric for an interface according to the bandwidth of the interface.

The no auto-cost disable form of this command reenables OSPFv3 metric calculation for an interface according to the bandwidth of the interface.

To set link cost based only on the interface type, use the disable keyword.

If you have multiple links with high bandwidth, you might want to use a larger number to differentiate the cost on those links.

Recommended usage of cost configuration for all OSPFv3 configured interfaces is to be consistent: Either explicitly configure link costs (by using the cost command) or choose an appropriate default (by using the auto-cost command).

The value set by the cost command overrides the cost resulting from the auto-cost command.

The link-state metric is advertised as the link cost in the router link advertisement.

In general, the path cost is calculated using the following formula:

10^8 / bandwidth

Using this formula, the default path cost is 1 for OC-3 Packet-over-SONET/SDH (POS). If this value does not suit your network, you can use your own method of calculating path costs.

The value set by the cost command overrides the cost resulting from the auto-cost command.

Usage Guidelines

To use this command, you must be in a user group associated with a task group that includes the proper task IDs. For detailed information about user groups and task IDs, see the Configuring AAA Services on Cisco IOS XR Software module of the Cisco IOS XR System Security Configuration Guide.

Whenever you use the redistribute or default-information command to redistribute routes into an OSPFv3 routing domain, the software automatically becomes an ASBR. However, an ASBR does not, by default, generate a default route into the OSPFv3 routing domain. The software still must have a default route for itself before it generates one, except when you have specified the always keyword.

When you use the default-information originate command for the OSPFv3 process, the default network must reside in the routing table.

Use the default-metric command with the redistribute command to cause the current routing protocol to use the same metric value for all redistributed routes. A default metric helps solve the problem of redistributing routes with incompatible metrics. Whenever metrics do not convert, use a default metric to provide a reasonable substitute and enable the redistribution to proceed.

Use the distribute-list prefix-list command to limit the routes that OSPFv3 installs in the RIB of your router. This command does not affect the information sent to other OSPFv3 routers or the routes that these routers compute and install.


Note Because the other OSPFv3 routers are not aware of any omissions in the RIB, they may send traffic addressed to the missing prefixes. If no other provision has been made for these prefixes, the packets are dropped.


When this command is specified in router ospfv3 configuration mode, the filter applies to all routes computed by OSPFv3.

When this command is specified in interface configuration mode, the filter applies only to routes that forward outgoing traffic over that interface.

To filter the routes redistributed into Open Shortest Path First Version 3 (OSPFv3) from other routing protocols, use the distribute-list prefix-list out command in router ospfv3 configuration mode. To remove the filter, use the no form of this command.

distribute-list prefix-list prefix-list-name out [protocol [process-id]]

no distribute-list prefix-list prefix-list-name out [protocol [process-id]]

Syntax Description

prefix-list-name

IP Version 6 (IPv6) prefix list name. The list defines which IPv6 prefixes are installed in the RIB.

protocol

(Optional) Source protocol from which routes are being redistributed. It can be one of the following keywords: bgp, isis, ospfv3, static, and connected.

The static keyword is used to redistribute IPv6 static routes.

The connected keyword refers to routes that are established automatically because IPv6 is enabled on an interface. For routing protocols such as OSPFv3 and Intermediate System-to-Intermediate System (IS-IS), these routes are redistributed as external to the autonomous system.

process-id

(Optional) For the bgp keyword, an autonomous system number, which is a 16-bit decimal number.

For the isis keyword, an optional argument that defines a meaningful name for a routing process. You can specify only one IS-IS process for each router. Creating a name for a routing process means that you use names when configuring routing.

For the ospfv3 keyword, an appropriate OSPFv3 process name from which routes are to be redistributed. The value takes the form of a string. A decimal number can be entered, but it is stored internally as a string.


Defaults

All routes from protocols specified in the redistribute (OSPFv3) command are redistributed into OSPFv3.

Routes may be redistributed into OSPFv3 from several other routing protocols or from other OSPFv3 processes. These routes are then communicated to other OSPFv3 routes through Type 5 (External) or Type 7 not-so-stubby area (NSSA) link-state advertisements (LSAs). Use the distribute-list prefix-list out command to control redistribution by matching redistributed routes against an IPv6 prefix list. Only routes permitted by the prefix list are redistributed into OSPFv3.

Each protocol being redistributed into OSPFv3 may have a separate prefix list. In addition, a prefix list can be defined that applies to all protocols.

The OSPFv3 routing protocol allows multiple unrelated OSPFv3 processes to share a link by using an 8-bit "instance" value to demultiplex the protocol packets. Each OSPFv3 process sets its configured instance value in the OSPFv3 packets that it sends, and ignores received packets with instance values from other OSPFv3 processes.


Note The instance-id argument should not be confused with the process-name argument that is specified by the router ospfv3 command. The former is an 8-bit integer that is sent to other routers as part of the OSPFv3 protocol, and the latter is a 1- to 40-character ASCII string that is significant only within a given router. The instance ID value is also unrelated to the router ID that is specified by the router-id command, which is a 32-bit integer value that uniquely identifies a router within an OSPFv3 routing domain.

maximum redistributed-prefixes (OSPFv3)

To limit the number of prefixes redistributed into Open Shortest Path First Version 3 (OSPFv3) or to generate a warning when the number of prefixes redistributed into OSPFv3 reaches a maximum, use the maximum redistributed-prefixes command in router configuration mode. To remove the values, use the no form of this command.

maximum redistributed-prefixes limit [threshold] [warning-only]

no maximum redistributed-prefixes

Syntax Description

limit

Maximum number of IP Version 6 (IPv6) prefixes that are allowed to be redistributed into OSPFv3, or, if the warning-only keyword is present, sets the number of prefixes allowed to be redistributed into OSPFv3 before the system logs a warning message. Range is 1 to 4294967295.

Note If the warning-only keyword is also configured, this value does not limit redistribution; it is simply the number of redistributed prefixes that, when reached, causes a warning message to be logged.

threshold

(Optional) Percentage of the value set for the maximum number of redistributed prefixes that, when reached, causes a warning message to be logged.

If someone mistakenly injects a large number of IPv6 routes into OSPFv3, perhaps by redistributing Border Gateway Protocol (BGP) into OSPFv3, the network can be severely flooded. Limiting the number of redistributed routes prevents this potential problem.

When the maximum redistributed-prefixes command is configured, if the number of redistributed routes reaches the maximum value configured, no more routes are redistributed (unless the warning-only keyword is configured).

The redistribution limit applies only to external IPv6 prefixes. Default routes and summarized routes are not limited.

The limit is tracked separately for each not-so-stubby-area (NSSA) because redistribution to NSSAs is done independently for each NSSA and independently of all other regular areas.

Select a maximum value based on your knowledge of how many prefixes are redistributed on the router to the OSPFv3 process.

neighbor (OSPFv3)

To configure Open Shortest Path First Version 3 (OSPFv3) routers interconnecting to nonbroadcast networks, use the neighbor command in interface configuration mode. To remove a configuration, use the no form of this command.

neighbor ipv6-address [priority number] [poll-interval seconds] [cost number] [database-filter all out]

no neighbor ipv6-address [priority number] [poll-interval seconds] [cost number] [database-filter all out]

Syntax Description

ipv6-address

Link-local IP Version 6 (IPv6) address of the neighbor. This argument must be in the form documented in RFC 2373, in which the address is specified in hexadecimal using 16-bit values between colons.

priority number

(Optional) Specifies an 8-bit number indicating the router priority value of the nonbroadcast neighbor associated with the IP address specified. The priority keyword does not apply to point-to-multipoint interfaces.

poll-interval seconds

(Optional) Specifies an unsigned integer value (in seconds) reflecting the poll interval. RFC 1247 recommends that this value be much larger than the hello interval. The poll-interval keyword does not apply to point-to-multipoint interfaces.

cost number

(Optional) Assigns a cost to the neighbor, in the form of an integer from 1 to 65535. Neighbors with no specific cost configured assume the cost of the interface, based on the cost command. On point-to-multipoint interfaces, cost number is the only keyword and argument combination that works. The cost keyword does not apply to nonbroadcast multiaccess (NBMA) networks.

database-filter all out

(Optional) Filters outgoing link-state advertisements (LSAs) to an OSPFv3 neighbor.

One neighbor entry must be included in the software configuration for each known nonbroadcast network neighbor. The neighbor address must be the IPv6 link-local address of the interface.

If a neighboring router has become inactive (hello packets have not been seen for the router dead interval period), it may still be necessary to send hello packets to the dead neighbor. These hello packets are sent at a reduced rate called the poll interval.

When the router starts up, it sends only hello packets to those routers with nonzero priority; that is, routers that are eligible to become designated routers (DRs) and backup designated routers (BDRs). After the DR and BDR are selected, the DR and BDR then start sending hello packets to all neighbors to form adjacencies.

Use the network command to configure broadcast networks as NBMA networks when, for example, routers in your network do not support multicast addressing.

Configuring NBMA networks as either broadcast or nonbroadcast assumes that there are virtual circuits from every router to every router or fully meshed network. However, there are other configurations where this assumption is not true; for example, a partially meshed network. In these cases, you can configure the OSPFv3 network type as a point-to-multipoint network. Routing between two routers that are not directly connected goes through the router that has virtual circuits to both routers. You need not configure neighbors when using this command.

If the network command is issued on an interface that does not allow it, this command is ignored.

OSPFv3 has two features related to point-to-multipoint networks. One feature applies to broadcast networks and the other feature applies to nonbroadcast networks:

On point-to-multipoint, broadcast networks, you can use the neighbor command, and you must specify a cost to that neighbor.

On point-to-multipoint, nonbroadcast networks, you must use the neighbor command to identify neighbors. Assigning a cost to a neighbor is optional.

Use the range command only with Area Border Routers (ABRs). It is used to consolidate or summarize routes for an area. The result is that a single summary route is advertised to other areas by the ABR. Routing information is condensed at area boundaries. External to the area, a single route is advertised for each address range. This process is called route summarization.

You can use the range command to configure multiple ranges. Thus, OSPFv3 can summarize addresses for many different sets of address ranges.

Syntax Description

bgp

Distributes routes from the BGP protocol.

process-id

For the bgp keyword, an autonomous system number, which is a 16-bit decimal number. Range is 1 to 65535.

For the isis keyword, an IS-IS instance name from which routes are to be redistributed. The value takes the form of a string. A decimal number can be entered, but it is stored internally as a string.

For the ospf keyword, an OSPF instance name from which routes are to be redistributed. The value takes the form of a string. A decimal number can be entered, but it is stored internally as a string.

metric metric-value

(Optional) Specifies the metric used for the redistributed route. Range is 1 to 16777214. Use a value consistent with the destination protocol.

metric-type {1 | 2}

(Optional) Specifies the external link type associated with the route advertised into the OSPF routing domain. It can be one of two values:

1—Type 1 external route

2—Type 2 external route

If no metric-type is specified, the default is Type 2 external routes.

tag tag-value

(Optional) Specifies the 32-bit dotted-decimal value attached to each external route. This value is not used by the OSPF protocol itself, but is carried in the External LSAs. Range is 0 to 4294967295.

policy policy-name

(Optional) Specifies the identifier of a configured policy. A policy is used to filter the importation of routes from this source routing protocol to OSPF.

connected

Distributes routes that are established automatically by virtue of having enabled IP on an interface.

isis

Distributes routes from the IS-IS protocol.

level-1

(Optional) Redistributes Level 1 routes into other IP routing protocols independently.

level-1-2

(Optional) Redistributes both Level 1 and Level 2 routes into other IP routing protocols.

level-2

(Optional) Redistributes Level 2 routes into other IP routing protocols independently.

ospf

Distributes routes from the OSPF protocol.

match {internal | external [1 | 2] | nssa-external [1 | 2]}

(Optional) Specifies the criteria by which OSPF routes are redistributed into other routing domains. It can be one or more of the following:

internal—Routes that are internal to a specific autonomous system (intra- and inter-area OSPF routes).

external [1 | 2]—Routes that are external to the autonomous system, but are imported into OSPF as Type 1 or Type 2 external routes.

nssa-external [1 | 2]—Routes that are external to the autonomous system, but are imported into OSPF as Type 1 or Type 2 not-so-stubby area (NSSA) external routes.

For the external and nssa-external options, if a type is not specified, then both Type 1 and Type 2 are assumed.

If no match is specified, the default is no filtering.

static

Redistributes IP static routes.


Defaults

Route redistribution is disabled.
metric metric-value: Default is 20 for routes from all protocols except BGP routes, in which the default is 1.
metric-type type-value: Type 2 external route
All routes from the OSPFv3 routing protocol are redistributed.
tag tag-value: If no value is specified, the remote autonomous system number is used for routes from Border Gateway Protocol (BGP); for other protocols, the default is 0.

Usage Guidelines

To use this command, you must be in a user group associated with a task group that includes the proper task IDs. For detailed information about user groups and task IDs, see the Configuring AAA Services on Cisco IOS XR Software module of the Cisco IOS XR System Security Configuration Guide.

Disabling or changing the arguments of any keyword does not affect the state of other keywords.

In general, route redistribution from Level 1 to Level 2 is automatic. You might want to use this command to better control which Level 1 routes can be redistributed into Level 2.

Level 2 routes redistributed into Level 1 is called route leaking. Route leaking is disabled by default. That is, Level 2 routes are not automatically included in Level 1 link-state protocols. If you want to leak Level 2 routes into Level 1, you must enable that behavior by using this command.

Redistribution from Level 1 into Level 1 and from Level 2 into Level 2 is not allowed.

A router receiving a link-state packet with an internal metric considers the cost of the route from itself to the redistributing router plus the advertised cost to reach the destination. An external metric considers only the advertised metric to reach the destination.

Redistributed routing information should always be filtered by the distribute-list prefix-list out command. Use of this command ensures that only those routes intended by the administrator are passed along to the receiving routing protocol.

OSPFv3 Considerations

Whenever you use the redistribute or the default-information command to redistribute routes into an OSPFv3 routing domain, the router automatically becomes an ASBR. However, an ASBR does not, by default, generate a default route into the OSPFv3 routing domain.

When routes are redistributed between OSPFv3 processes, no OSPFv3 metrics are preserved.

When routes are redistributed into OSPF and no metric is specified with the metric keyword, OSPF uses 20 as the default metric for routes from all protocols except BGP routes, which get a metric of 1. Furthermore, when the router redistributes from one OSPFv3 process to another OSPFv3 process on the same router, and if no default metric is specified, the metrics in one process are carried to the redistributing process.

BGP Considerations

The only connected routes affected by this command are the routes not specified by the network (BGP) command.

retransmit-interval (OSPFv3)

To specify the time between link-state advertisement (LSA) retransmissions for adjacencies belonging to the Open Shortest Path First Version 3 (OSPFv3) interface, use the retransmit-interval command in the appropriate configuration mode. To return to the default value, use the no form of this command.

retransmit-interval seconds

no retransmit-interval

Syntax Description

seconds

Time (in seconds) between retransmissions. It must be greater than the expected round-trip delay between any two routers on the attached network. Range is 1 to 65535 seconds.


Defaults

If this command is not specified in interface configuration mode, then the interface adopts the retransmit interval parameter specified by the area.
If this command is not specified in area configuration mode, then the interface adopts the retransmit interval parameter specified by the process.
If this command is not specified at any level, then the default retransmit interval is 5 seconds.

To use this command, you must be in a user group associated with a task group that includes the proper task IDs. For detailed information about user groups and task IDs, see the Configuring AAA Services on Cisco IOS XR Software module of the Cisco IOS XR System Security Configuration Guide.

When a router sends an LSA to its neighbor, it keeps the LSA until it receives the acknowledgment message. If the router receives no acknowledgment, it resends the LSA.

The setting of this parameter should be conservative, or needless retransmission results. The value should be larger for serial lines and virtual links.

router-id (OSPFv3)

To configure a router ID for the Open Shortest Path First Version 3 (OSPFv3) routing process, use the router-id command in router ospfv3 configuration mode. To cause the software to use the default method of determining the router ID, use the no form of this command.

router-id {router-id | interface-type interface-instance}

no router-id {router-id | interface-type interface-instance}

Syntax Description

router-id

32-bit router ID value specified in four-part, dotted-decimal notation.

interface-type

Interface type. For more information, use the question mark (?) online help function.

interface-instance

Either a physical interface instance or a virtual interface instance:

Physical interface instance. Naming notation is rack/slot/module/port and a slash between values is required as part of the notation.

rack: Chassis number of the rack.

slot: Physical slot number of the line card.

module: Module number. A physical layer interface module (PLIM) is always 0.

port: Physical port number of the interface.

Note In references to a Management Ethernet interface located on a route processor card, the physical slot number is alphanumeric (RP0 or RP1) and the module is CPU0.
Example: interface MgmtEth0/RP1/CPU0/0.

Virtual interface instance. Number range varies depending on interface type.

Usage Guidelines

To use this command, you must be in a user group associated with a task group that includes the proper task IDs. For detailed information about user groups and task IDs, see the Configuring AAA Services on Cisco IOS XR Software module of the Cisco IOS XR System Security Configuration Guide.

We recommend that you use the router-id command to explicitly specify a unique 32-bit numeric value for the router ID. This configuration ensures that OSPFv3 can function regardless of the interface address configuration.

OSPFv3 attempts to obtain a router ID from the following sources in the order of decreasing preference:

The primary IPv4 address of the interface specified by the router-id (OSPFv3) command in router ospfv3 configuration mode.

The 32-bit value configured by the router-id command in configuration mode. This value must be an IPv4 address assigned to an interface on your router.

The primary IPv4 address of the interface configured by the router-id command in global configuration mode.

The highest IPv4 address assigned to any loopback interface.

If the OSPFv3 process cannot obtain a router ID from any of these sources, the router issues the following error message:

%OSPFv3-4-NORTRID : OSPFv3 process 1 cannot run - configure a router ID for this process
 
   

At this point, OSPFv3 is effectively passive on all its interfaces. To run OSPFv3, make a router ID available by one of the methods described.

To use this command, you must be in a user group associated with a task group that includes the proper task IDs. For detailed information about user groups and task IDs, see the Configuring AAA Services on Cisco IOS XR Software module of the Cisco IOS XR System Security Configuration Guide.

You might use this command when the databases of two neighboring routers are out of synchronization or if the adjacency is not forming between them. Adjacency means that the routers synchronize their databases when they discover each other.

You can look at the list to determine if one router is trying to request a particular database update. Entries that appear to be suspended in the list usually indicate that updates are not being delivered. One possible reason for this behavior is a maximum transmission unit (MTU) mismatch between the routers.

You might also look at this list to make sure it is not corrupted. The list should refer to database entries that actually exist.

You must configure the stub command on all routers in the stub area. Use the default-cost area command on the ABR of a stub area to specify the cost of the default route advertised into the stub area by the ABR.

Two stub area router configuration commands exist: the stub and default-cost commands. In all routers attached to the stub area, the area should be configured as a stub area using the stub command. Use the default-cost command only on an ABR attached to the stub area. The default-cost command provides the metric for the summary default route generated by the ABR into the stub area.

To further reduce the number of link-state advertisements (LSAs) sent into a stub area, you can configure the no-summary keyword on the ABR to prevent it from sending summary LSAs (LSA Type 3) into the stub area.

A stub area does not accept information about routes external to the autonomous system.

Use the summary-prefix command to cause an OSPFv3 Autonomous System Boundary Router (ASBR) to advertise one external route as an aggregate for all redistributed routes that are covered by the address. This command summarizes only routes from other routing protocols that are being redistributed into OSPFv3.

You can use this command multiple times to summarize multiple groups of addresses. The metric used to advertise the summary is the lowest metric of all the more specific routes. This command helps reduce the size of the routing table.

If you want to summarize routes between OSPFv3 areas, use the range command.

Configuring OSPFv3 flood pacing timers allows you to control interpacket spacing between consecutive link-state update packets in the OSPF transmission queue. Use the timers pacing flood command to control the rate at which LSA updates occur, thereby preventing high CPU or buffer utilization that can result when an area is flooded with a very large number of LSAs.

The default settings for OSPFv3 packet pacing timers are suitable for the majority of OSPFv3 deployments. Do not change the packet pacing timers unless all other options to meet OSPFv3 packet flooding requirements have been exhausted. Specifically, network operators should prefer summarization, stub area usage, queue tuning, and buffer tuning before changing the default flood timers. Furthermore, no guidelines exist for changing timer values; each OSPFv3 deployment is unique and should be considered on a case-by-case basis. The network operator assumes risks associated with changing the default flood timer values.

Use the timers pacing lsa-group command to control the rate at which LSA updates occur so that high CPU or buffer utilization that can occur when an area is flooded with a very large number of LSAs can be reduced. The default settings for OSPFv3 packet pacing timers are suitable for the majority of deployments.

Specifically, network operators should prefer summarization, stub area usage, queue tuning, and buffer tuning before changing the default flooding timers. Furthermore, no guidelines exist for changing timer values; each OSPFv3 deployment is unique and should be considered on a case-by-case basis. The network operator assumes the risks associated with changing the default timer values.

Cisco IOS XR software groups the periodic refresh of LSAs to improve the LSA packing density for the refreshes in large topologies. The group timer controls the interval used for group refreshment of LSAs; however, this timer does not change the frequency that individual LSAs are refreshed (the default refresh rate is every 30 minutes).

The duration of the LSA group pacing is inversely proportional to the number of LSAs the router is handling. For example, if you have about 10,000 LSAs, decreasing the pacing interval would benefit you. If you have a very small database (40 to 100 LSAs), increasing the pacing interval to 10 to 20 minutes might benefit you slightly.

To define an Open Shortest Path First Version 3 (OSPFv3) virtual link, use the virtual-link command in area configuration mode with the optional parameters. To remove a virtual link, use the no form of this command.

virtual-link router-id

no virtual-link

Syntax Description

router-id

Router ID associated with the virtual link neighbor. The router ID appears in the show ospfv3 display. This value must be entered in 32-bit dotted-decimal notation, similar to an IP Version 4 (IPv4) address. There is no default.


Defaults

No virtual links are defined.

Usage Guidelines

To use this command, you must be in a user group associated with a task group that includes the proper task IDs. For detailed information about user groups and task IDs, see the Configuring AAA Services on Cisco IOS XR Software module of the Cisco IOS XR System Security Configuration Guide.

In OSPFv3, when there exists a path through another non-backbone area over which the virtual link can function, all areas must be connected to a backbone area. If the connection to the backbone is lost, it can be repaired by establishing a virtual link.

Virtual links, which are defined in the submode of the area they transit, are in effect virtual point-to-point interfaces belonging to area 0 (the backbone). The virtual links inherit parameter values from the backbone area, rather than the transit area in which they are defined.

Each virtual link neighbor must include the router ID of the virtual link neighbor for the link to be properly established. Use the show ospfv3 command to display the router ID of an OSPFv3 process.

Use the virtual-link command to place the router in virtual-link configuration mode (config-router-ar-vl), from which you can configure virtual-link-specific settings. Commands configured under this mode (such as the transmit-delay command) are automatically bound to that virtual link.
