Release Notes for Cisco Application-Oriented Networking, 3.0


June 17, 2008

Cisco Application-Oriented Networking (AON) is the first in a new line of Cisco products that embed intelligence into the network to meet the needs of application deployment. AON enables you to:

Integrate dissimilar applications by routing information to the appropriate destination, in the format required at the destination.

Enforce policies for information access and exchange.

Optimize bandwidth and reduce processing overhead for application traffic.

Increase management of information flow, including monitoring for business and infrastructure.

Enhance business continuity by transparently backing up or rerouting critical business data.

Working at the message rather than packet level, AON provides this support by understanding more about the content and context of information flow.

New Features in Cisco AON Release 3.0

WSDL and WS-Policy Import and PEP GeneratorAON 3.0 provides the ability to import WSDL and WS-Policy documents from a file system or from a specified HTTP URL (only clear text, not HTTPS) into the ADS. Based on the imported WS artifacts, you can choose to have ADS generate a PEP that includes the bladelets required to invoke the chosen service from the WSDL and enforce the policies within the WS-Policy documents. For example ADS can generate a PEP containing the Sign, Encrypt, Send, and Branch Bladelets, and so on.

Create SOAP Message Bladelet for Call Out RequestsThis new bladelet is similar to the existing Create Message Bladelet, except that it is designed to allow the user to configure outgoing SOAP calls. You can drag and drop the bladelet onto the PEP so that when the user wishes to call an external Web Service the user is prompted to specify a WSDL object (a file system or an HTTP URL).

New Cisco AON Appliance Platforms—AON 3.0 introduces two new AON appliance devices—The Cisco ADE 1010 Integrated Single-Core Appliance and the Cisco ADE 2142 Integrated Dual Quad-Core Appliance.

SAML 2.0 SupportAON 3.0 accepts both SAML 1.0 as well as SAML 2.0 tokens in its Identify, Verify Identity, and Authorize Bladelets.

SOAP Request Classification and PrioritizationMessage type definitions now allow classification based on SOAP headers and body tokens, such as the WSS username token, WSS X.509 certificate token, and WSS SAML token.

Context- and Content-Based Routing Enhancements —AON 3.0 provides enhancements to content-based routing based on sender identification in HTTP or SOAP headers, HTTP header elements (HEAD, and so on), HTTP and SOAP header information (values), SOAP header, HTTP header, source IP/port number, and context-based routing based on day, date, and time.

SSL Support Added to BEA JMS AdapterProcessing of WebLogic JMS messages over SSL is now possible. This will guarantee message security. Both one-way SSL and two-way SSL are implemented. In one-way SSL, only the server is authenticated by the client, while for two-way SSL both client and server side authentication will be used.

HTTP Pipelining SupportAs mandated by the HTTP 1.1 specification (RFC-2616), AON 3.0 supports pipelining of incoming HTTP requests on persistent connections, where responses need to be sent in the same order in which the requests were received.

Data Streaming SupportThe AON 3.0 data streaming model enhances the existing interaction between embedded adapters and the AON system to support streaming of discrete blocks of data This enhances the performance of the embedded adapters and the AON system.

Syslog Support for NOTICE and DEBUG MessagesAON 3.0 adds support for redirecting AON logs to syslog for DEBUG and NOTICE level messages.

Multiport Support on ApplianceAON 3.0 includes changes that enable the use of the third network interface on AON appliances.

Message Order PreservationMessages may need to be delivered at the outbound in the same sequence as they were received at the inbound. A new combination of Unreliable/Ordered delivery semantics was added.

SNMP MIB MetricsA comprehensive set of SNMP MIB metrics was added as part of this release.

Notify BladeletA new bladelet that allows users to send a custom notification by email or SNMP trap.

Timestamp Bladelet—A new bladelet that provides the ability to add header information for the message sender, such as when a message was created and when it expires.

Microsoft SQL Server Support for Log BladeletAbility to select Microsoft SQL Server database while creating a Message Log policy in AMC has been added.

System-Tunable ParametersA new policy that allows the administrator to modify system-tunable parameters such as number of threads and so on has been added.

For more information on using these features, see the "Related Documentation" section.

Upgrade Paths

Table 4 lists the valid upgrade paths for each AON software release. Previous AON releases did not require you to upgrade software on AON nodes. However, due to several architectural changes included in Cisco AON Release 3.0, you must upgrade all nodes for this release. A version 3.0 AMC cannot manage nodes running previous AON software releases.

Using Cisco IOS Release 12.4(9)T

Cisco IOS Release 12.4(9)T changes the name of the AON-NM in Cisco IOS. It is now referred to as AON-Engine instead of AONS-Engine. Because of this change, you must perform the following additional steps as part of your upgrade:

Back up your startup and running configurations.

After the upgrade, reenter the AON-NM's network configuration using the AON-Engine interface.

For further details on configuring the AON-NM, see the AON Installation and Upgrade Guide.

Important Notes

Important Notes that Affect AON Release 3.0

Due to several architectural changes in the AON software, you must recompile custom adapters and custom bladelets used with previous AON releases before they can be used with Cisco AON Release 3.0.

Your AON environment may be affected by changes to Daylight Saving Time specified by the U.S. Energy Policy Act of 2005. See the following document for more complete details: Impact of U.S. Daylight Savings Time Changes on Cisco Application-Oriented Networking.

An excessive number of open SSL connections can cause an AON node to become inoperable. AON has been verified to handle up to 100 connections without effect. However, the node goes out of service when there are 350 open SSL connections.

The MQ adapter has not been recertified on AON Release 3.0.

Two-node AON-to-AON configuration scenarios have not been recertified with AON Release 3.0.

P-mode is supported through a Cisco AON Advanced Services service offering.

The AON ALE adapter is supported through a Cisco AON Advanced Services service offering. Please contact the Cisco Advanced Services team.

For information on Cisco AON Advanced Services, see the following URL:

http://www.cisco.com/en/US/services/ps2961/ps6894/
services_overview0900aecd80428cd6.pdf

When deleting entries in the local cache using the cache API, repeated attempts may be required, because the returned value does not signify whether the delete operation is successful.

Important Notes from Previous AON Releases

The AON Management Console (AMC) supports only Microsoft Internet Explorer 6. AMC pages may not render properly in other web browsers.

AON is implemented in Java, where memory is automatically managed by the Java runtime system. This means that there might be moments in the system when the garbage collection (automatic memory management) is still working at freeing up memory. The graceful-handling mechanism checks the free memory to determine if a message should be let into the system. So under high loads it is possible that AON will reject messages because the garbage collection is taking time to free up memory.

The following issues may affect AON Development Studio (ADS) installation; however, the root causes are beyond the control of Cisco:

Using the ALT key during ADS installation can cause some InstallShield screens to become corrupted. Despite this display problem, the ADS installer continues to function. If the display gets corrupted, minimize the ADS installer and then maximize it again. The display should return to normal. This is a known InstallShield issue when using JVMs with version 1.4.2.x.

In rare situations when initially launching ADS on Windows 2000, an error message may be returned indicating that the database is busy or unavailable. The error can occur even though the database is listed as started in the list of Windows Services. This occurs when a database port is chosen in the ADS installer that also appears in the output of the netstat -a command in a loopback situation. The port is shown as pointing to another server port which in turn points back to it. This behavior has been seen only with one port, although not always the same port on the system. Reboot the PC to correct this problem.

Open Caveats

Table 7 lists the caveats for this AON release, including defect identification numbers and symptoms. When applicable, conditions under which the defects occur and workarounds are also included.

Table 7 Open Defects in Cisco AON Version 3.0 

Defect ID
Description

CSCsq24109

Symptom

Identity Extractor bladelet fails to extract SAML 1.0 and 1.1 tokens.

Conditions

Occurs when the Identity Extractor bladelet is used to verify signed SAML 1.0 or 1.1 tokens.

Workaround

Use SAML 2.0 tokens.

Further Problem Description

This is due to the fact that the underlying open source library used for SAML verification fails for SAML 1.0 and 1.1 tokens.

CSCsm93487

Symptom

CADE-2142: Layer 2 forwarding is not preserved on CADE reboot

Conditions

The "forward" property is only available on 8340 appliances and the CADE platform.

Workaround

If an AON appliance is rebooted, the forward layer2 WCCP setting must be reapplied using the CLI.

CSCsi19595

Symptom

Schema validation fails for partial message validation; for example, when using XPath to pick part of the message as a validation target

Conditions

Occurs only for partial message validation, not for full message validation.

Workaround:

Avoid partial message validation by providing all schemas necessary to validate the complete message.

CSCsh85052

Symptom

When deploying a large adapter, the AMC throws an internal DB exception. From the AMC log, the exception stack trace points to "ArrayIndexOutOfBoundsException."

Conditions

This error is caused by insufficient heap space in the AMC process to handle large adapter, typically of size 50MB or larger.

Workaround

Stop the AMC server, then increase the AMC heap size in the AMC startup script, and then restart the AMC.

Here are the detailed steps:

1. Stop the AMC by running ./amcd stop from the /bin subdirectory under your installed AMC root directory.

2. Open up the "amc" script with a text editor. Look for the following lines in the script:

typeset -a AMC_OPTS
AMC_OPTS=(
 "-Damc.resource.home=${AMC_HOME}" \
 ....
 "-server" \
 "-Xmx512m" \
 "-Djavax.net.ssl.keyStore=${KSTORE}" \
 ....
)

The default heap size is 512MB (as defined by "Xmx512m").

3. Increase the heap size to a larger number (for example, 768 MB, as in "Xmx768m").

4. Save the file.

5. Restart the AMC by running ./amcd start.

CSCsh68780

Symptom

Sybase driver upgrade issue.

Conditions

When deploying a large adapter (50 MB or larger), the AMC throws an internal database exception.

The error is caused by insufficient heap space to accommodate the 50 MB adapter.

Workaround

Upgrade to the latest Sybase driver.

CSCsj38540

Symptom

Slow query results when trying to view logged message details

Conditions

Occurs when there are 50 K or more of messages in the database.

Workaround

Create an index on the LOGID for the Message_Contents and entries to set up the indexes on LOGID are:

CREATE INDEX "MSG_CONTENTS_IDX" ON "MESSAGE_CONTENTS" ("LOGID");
CREATE INDEX "FLOW_VARIABLES_IDX" ON "FLOW_VARIABLES" ("LOGID");

CSCsk51380

Symptom

ID-Ext failed to extract signed SAML token after AON signs SOAP message.

Conditions

This problem occurs when these two conditions are present:

1. The incoming message has a signed SAML token signed by AON.

2. AON executes a PEP that includes the Sign and IdExtract bladelets.

Workaround

Use a custom bladelet to sign the SAML tokens and use the IdExtract bladelet only to extract a signed SAML token.

CSCsj25419

Symptom

Headers added to a Request Message get copied to created Response Message

Conditions

Occurs with any HTTP request message.

Workaround:

Use the Update Message bladelet to set the response message headers.

CSCsk18261

Symptom

"No" commands do not provide negate functionality

Conditions

Some of the negate commands that start with no, for example, no show aon health or no wr erase do not work as expected, and the commands themselves may not be valid (for example, no show aon health). Most of the negate versions of show commands are not valid but such an indication is not displayed on the AON command prompt, while some of the negate commands that involve updates like no wr erase are not working as expected.

Workaround

None

CSCsi15541

Conditions

If the time zone is changed on K-plus and the switch is rebooted, AON inherits the switch time zone.

Workaround

Change the time zone on K-plus following the reboot

CSCsq39666

Symptom

While running the secondary (flash-memory based) helper on the AON module, the "exit" option does not terminate the session.

Conditions

Boot the device from the secondary helper image and select the exit option from the main menu.

Workaround

Enter the usual CLI break sequence shortcut—<CTRL> x.

CSCsq41554

Symptom

Graceful restart does not work.

Conditions

When the aon restart graceful command is entered, the command does not complete.

Workaround

Enter the aon restart force command.

CSCsm86105

Symptom

On the AON CLI, the default network interface used for AON traffic is identified as GigabitEthernet2

Conditions

This condition occurs on the CADE-2142 appliance.

Workaround

None. See the "Verifying the Hardware Installation on the Cisco-ADE 2142" section in chapter 1 the Cisco AON Installation and Upgrade Guide, 3.0, "Configuring AON Devices" for information on the actual mapping of the ports to the physical interface.

CSCsk87732

Symptom

Unable to configure ip route command via CLI

Conditions

Two ports are on the same subnet.

Workaround

Ensure that each port is on a separate subnet and no explicit routes are required for either port.

CSCso88009

Symptom

Cisco ADE 2142—Unable to configure gateway address for out-of-band interface.

Conditions

The CLI provides the following command:

out-of-band interface ip address <IPaddress> <netmask>

There is no other CLI available for configuring the gateway address for the out-of-band interface.

If the out-of-band interface is on a different subnet, since there is no way to configure the gateway, the interface is unusable. This means that the out-of-band interface be on the same subnet as the Gigabit2 interface and use the same default gateway.

Workaround

None.

CSCsj59005

Symptom

When using the distributed cache, attempts to obtain locks may time out.

Conditions

Multiple custom bladelets attempt to obtain lock on an object prior to performing either the corresponding get/put or delete function. After some time of successful obtaining locks, the bladelets experience that lock attempts time out.

Workaround

None. Avoid using the distributed cache.

CSCsm62994

Symptom

ADS and AMC get out of sync

Conditions

Occurs after deleting and reading PEP and message type.:

Workaround

This can happen if the AMC is not reinstalled as prescribed. Retry the AMC installation.

CSCso10437

Symptom

WCCP is lost when the AON module is reloaded

Conditions

WCCP is configured from the CLI. The AON module is reloaded by using the reload command or the switch or router CLI.

Workaround

Use the AMC to configure the WCCP information.

CSCso21095

Symptom

Upon removal from the chassis, AMC displays the node in the reachable state (showing a green up arrow).

Conditions

Removal of the AON module from the chassis while the node state is shown as reachable on the AMC display.

Workaround

Restart the AMC.

CSCek25514

Symptom

Fastpath does not support wildcards in a uniform resource identifier (URI) for message-type classification.

Conditions

In a message type URI, if a string such as "/index*" is specified, Fastpath classification does not classify messages with URIs "/index.html" or "/index1.html" to that message type.

Workaround

Use complete URI for message-type classification. If more than one URI must be classified to a single message type and execute the same policy execution plan (PEP), define a message type for each URI and map all message types to the same PEP.

CSCsq23342

Symptom

The AON device allows running SSH and SNMP from both the in-band and out-of band interface.

The expected behavior should be:

SSH is configurable only through the out-of-band interface.

SNMP is configurable only through the out-of-band interface.

CSCsq23345

Symptom

Syslog traffic is transmitted through the in-band interface instead of the out-of-band interface.

On the Gigabit2 interface, Syslog messages should be sent through the out-of-band interface.

CSCsq53316

Symptom

The message KERNEL: assertion (!req->sk) appears on the AON console and the node goes down unexpectedly if left running for more than 24 hours.

Conditions

KPLUS is running under the following conditions:

WCCP is enabled in a single node configuration.

Syslog is set to debug mode and logging to a remote machine.

The node is serving a very high load for more than 24 hours.

Workaround

Set the debug level to warning both on AON and in syslog.

CSCek31626

Symptom

Classification based on URI does not seem to work correctly. Messages are rejected even if there is an entry for that URI.

Conditions

This occurs under the following sample configuration:

A message type named "T1" is based on 5-tuple named "A" and a URI of "/index-nomatch.html"

Another message type is named "T2" and based only on a URI of "/index.html"

Messages that match 5-tuple "A" and URI "/index.html" do not get classified to type "T2" and are rejected.

Workaround

Use one of the following options:

Add a third message type that is based on 5-tuple "A" and URI "/index.html"

If 5-tuple based classification is not required for "T1" classification, remove the 5-tuple detail from that message type.

CSCek37187

Symptom

Following an upgrade, the log level for Fastpath resets to the default setting, as it is designed to do. However, the running configuration incorrectly shows the previous log level.

Workaround

Configure the appropriate log level after each upgrade.

CSCse55758

Symptom

When the URI is http:cisco.com/index.html, instead of sending the data to http://cisco.com/index.html, AON sends the request to the destination specified in the "host" header field.

Conditions

This occurs when the URI is incorrect. Although http:www.cisco.com is a correct form of URI, Fastpath misinterprets it. Fastpath then reconstructs the URL from the "host" header field and attempts to connect to it.

Workaround

None.

CSCsg76007

Symptom

Port 6666 becomes unresponsive after a massive number of HTTPS requests. The port does not recover.

Workaround

Restart AON.

CSCsh67373

Symptom

AON lacks correct time zone information for the U.S. state of Indiana.

Workaround

Change your time zone setting to a locale that equates to the correct time for your area. See the following document for more complete details: Impact of U.S. Daylight Savings Time Changes on Cisco Application-Oriented Networking.
