Introduction

Cisco IOS XR software is a distributed operating system designed for continuous system operation combined with service flexibility and high performance.

Cisco IOS XR software running on the Cisco ASR 9000 Series Router provides the following features and benefits:

IP and RoutingSupports a wide range of IPv4 and IPv6 services and routing protocols; such as Border Gateway Protocol (BGP), Routing Information Protocol (RIPv2), Intermediate System-to-Intermediate System (IS-IS), Open Shortest Path First (OSPF), IP Multicast, Routing Policy Language (RPL), Hot Standby Router Protocol (HSRP), and Virtual Router Redundancy Protocol features (VRRP).

Ethernet Services—The Cisco IOS XR software Release 3.9.1 running on the Cisco ASR 9000 Series Router supports the following Ethernet features:

Ethernet Virtual Connections (EVCs)

Flexible VLAN classification

Flexible VLAN translation

IEEE bridging

IEEE 802.1s Multiple Spanning Tree (MST)

MST Access Gateway

L2VPN

Virtual Private LAN Services (VPLS), Hierarchical VPLS (H-VPLS), Virtual Private Wire Service (VPWS), Ethernet over MPLS (EoMPLS), pseudo wire redundancy, and multi segment pseudo wire stitching

BGP Prefix Independent ConvergenceProvides the ability to converge BGP routes within sub seconds instead of multiple seconds. The Forwarding Information Base (FIB) is updated, independent of a prefix, to converge multiple 100K BGP routes with the occurrence of a single failure. This convergence is applicable to both core and edge failures and with or with out MPLS. This fast convergence innovation is unique to Cisco IOS XR software.

Multiprotocol Label Switching (MPLS)Supports MPLS protocols, including Traffic Engineering (TE) [including TE-FRR and TE Preferred Path], Resource Reservation Protocol (RSVP), Label Distribution Protocol (LDP), Targeted LDP (T-LDP), Differentiated Services (DiffServ)-aware traffic engineering, and Layer 3 Virtual Private Network (L3VPN).

Multicast—Provides comprehensive IP Multicast software including Source Specific Multicast (SSM) and Protocol Independent Multicast (PIM) in Sparse Mode only. The Cisco ASR 9000 Series Router also supports Automatic route processing (AutoRP), Multiprotocol BGP (MBGP), Multicast Source Discovery Protocol (MSDP), Internet Group Management Protocol Versions 2 and 3 (IGMPv2 and v3), and IGMPv2 and v3 snooping.

Quality of Service (QoS)—Supports QoS mechanisms including policing, marking, queuing, random and hard traffic dropping, and shaping. Additionally, Cisco IOS XR supports modular QoS command-line interface (MQC). MQC is used to configure various QoS features on various Cisco platforms, including the Cisco ASR 9000 Series Router. Supports the following:

Class-Based Weighted Fair Queuing (CBWFQ)

Weighted Random Early Detection (WRED)

Priority Queuing with propagation

2-rate 3-color (2R3C) Policing

Modular QoS CLI (MQC)

4-level Hierarchical-QoS

Shared Policy Instances

Manageability—Provides industry-standard management interfaces including modular command-line interface (CLI), Simple Network Management Protocol (SNMP), and native Extensible Markup Language (XML) interfaces. Includes a comprehensive set of Syslog messaging.

Security—Provides comprehensive network security features including Layer 2 and Layer 3access control lists (ACLs); routing authentications; Authentication, Authorization, and Accounting (AAA)/Terminal Access Controller Access Control System (TACACS+); Secure Shell (SSH); Management Plane Protection (MPP) for control plan security; and Simple Network Management Protocol version3 (SNMPv3). Control plane protections integrated into line card Application-Specific Integrated Circuits (ASICs) include Generalized TTL Security Mechanism (GTSM), RFC 3682, and Dynamic Control Plane Protection (DCPP).

Availability—Supports rich availability features such as fault containment, fault tolerance, fast switchover, link aggregation, nonstop routing for ISIS, LDP and OSPF, and nonstop forwarding (NSF).

Enhanced core competencies:

IP fast convergence with Fast Reroute (FRR) support for Intermediate System-to-Intermediate System (IS-IS)

Traffic engineering support for unequal load balancing

Path Computation Element (PCE) capability for traffic engineering

QoS Features

Cisco IOS XR Software Release 3.9.0 adds support on the Cisco ASR 9000 Series Router with the SIP-700 and SPA-2XCHOC12/DS0 for the following QoS features:

Support for IPv4 payload on Serial (PPP encapsulation), MLPPP, and MCMP interfaces. Support for LFI traffic on MLPPP or MCMP bundles.

Support for classification based on DSCP, precedence, protocol, qos-group (egress only), discard-class (egress only), and access-lists.

Support for marking, policing, and priority (see Fabric QoS section) in the ingress direction.

Support for marking, policing, and all queueing actions (bandwidth, bandwidth-remaining, shaping, queue-limit, priority levels 1 and 2, and random-detect) in the egress direction.

On the SIP-700 and SPA-2XCHOC12/DS0 only a 2-parameter scheduler is supported i.e. either bandwidth or bandwidth-remaining can be used in the same policy, but not both.

Note that traffic shaping on an input interface is not supported on the SIP-700.

Two levels of hierarchy supported, with only class-default permitted in the parent policy-map.

Fabric QoS configured using the priority action in the ingress direction.

Support for re-programming the QoS policy in response to underlying link bandwidth change on multi-link interfaces. There is no support for in place QoS policy modification on the SIP-700.

Support for the "encap-sequence" action to set the traffic class for traffic on multi-class MLPPP interfaces in the egress direction.

The "set cos"command on the egress of a Layer 3 interface is valid and supported. The "set cos" command on the ingress of a Layer 3 interface is rejected when performed on a subinterface. The "set cos" command on the ingress of a Layer 3 interface is ignored on a main interface.

Y.1731 Performance Monitoring - Delay & Delay Variance

Cisco IOS XR Software Release 3.9.0 adds support on the Cisco ASR 9000 Series Router for Y.1731 PM, which initially supports 2-way scheduled delay and delay variance measurements.

IP FRR

Cisco IOS XR Software Release 3.9.0 adds support on the Cisco ASR 9000 Series Router for IPFRR (IP Fast ReRoute), a set of technologies used in order to rapidly converge traffic flows around link and/or node failures. Only MLPPP encapsulation channels on the OC-12 SONET interface can be protected by IP-FRR in Cisco IOS XR Software Release 3.9.1.

L2 Multicast Limit

Cisco IOS XR Software Release 3.9.0 adds support on the Cisco ASR 9000 Series Router for the Layer 2 Multicast Limit feature, which supports IGMP Snooping based limits for both the maximum number of allowed multicast channels per subscriber and the maximum bandwidth available for multicast per subscriber.

Traffic Mirroring

Cisco IOS XR Software Release 3.9.0 adds support on the Cisco ASR 9000 Series Router for Local Traffic Mirroring (EFP to EFP) and also the option of appending a VLAN tag on the destination port for transport across an Ethernet network. Traffic Mirroring copies traffic from one or more Layer 2 interfaces or sub-interfaces, including Layer 2 link bundle interfaces/sub-interfaces, and sends the copied traffic to one or more destinations for analysis by a network analyzer or other monitoring device.

On a switch, unicast traffic from A to B is only forwarded to the B port. Therefore, the network analyzer does not see this traffic. When the Traffic Mirroring feature is enabled, the network analyzer is attached to a port that is configured to receive a copy of every packet that host A sends. This port is called a traffic mirroring port.

Currently, the Cisco ASR 9000 Series Router only supports Local SPAN and R-SPAN.

A maximum of 8 monitor sessions, and 800 source ports are supported.

You can configure 800 source ports on a single monitor session or configure an aggregate total of 800 source ports on up to 8 different monitor sessions.

The following SPAN types are not supported:

ER-SPAN (Encapsulated Remote Switched Port Analyzer)

Traffic is mirrored to a remote site via a GRE tunnel.

Pseudowire SPAN (PW-SPAN).

Traffic is mirrored to a remote site via an MPLS pseudowire, instead of using a standard destination interface. (Plan to be supported in 4.0.1 release.)

VLAN-based SPAN.

In this case, the source for the mirrored traffic is not simply a set of interfaces, but is a full bridge-domain.

Filter-SPAN (F-SPAN)

In this case, flow and ACL are applied in mirroring the traffic.

Cisco recommends not mirroring more 15% of total transit traffic. On TenGigE or bundle interfaces there is a limit of 1.5G on each ingress and egress traffic port to be mirrored.

SPAN Configurations:

To create a "monitor-session" in global config:

-monitor-session <name>

- destination interface <dst_interface>

To attach a source port in local-plane config:

-interface <src-interface> l2transport

- monitor-session <name> [direction {rx_only | tx_only]

SPAN Configuration Samples:

SPAN with Physical Interfaces (Local SPAN)

The following example shows a basic configuration for SPAN with physical interfaces. When traffic flows over the point to point cross connect between gig0/2/0/19 and gig0/2/0/11, packets received and transmitted on gig0/2/0/19 will also get mirrored to gig0/2/0/15.

MPLS TE Path Protection

Cisco IOS XR Software Release 3.9.0 adds support on the Cisco ASR 9000 Series Router for MPLS TE path protection, which provides a backup tunnel between the MPLS/TE head-end and the tail router and adds to Cisco's MPLS/TE suite of bandwidth protection features, which also include node protection and link protection.

Image Refresh using Compact Flash

Cisco IOS XR Software Release 3.9.0 adds support on the Cisco ASR 9000 Series Router for performing an image refresh using compact flash.

Features Introduced in Cisco IOS XR Software Release 3.7.3

The following features introduced in Cisco IOS XR Software Release 3.7.3 are supported on the Cisco ASR 9000 Series Router platform:

MSTAG Enhancements

Cisco IOS XR Software Release 3.7.3 adds support on the Cisco ASR 9000 Series Router for multiple spanning tree access gateway (MSTAG) topology control.

MSTP Enhancements

Cisco IOS XR Software Release 3.7.3 adds support on the Cisco ASR 9000 Series Router for the following features added to MSTP:

PortFast—allows a port to be marked as an edge port that does not participate in the spanning tree.

BPDUGuard—protects PortFast ports from misconfigurations by error-disabling them if they receive a BPDU.

UplinkFast—allows a RootPort to transition straight to forwarding, if there are no other active RootPorts on the box.

BackboneFast—allows for accelerated recovery from indirect link failures.

RootGuard—prevents a port from becoming the RootPort.

MSTAG support on physical and bundle Ethernet interfaces.

EFP Egress Filtering on the Cisco ASR 9000 Series Router

Cisco IOS XR Software Release 3.7.3 introduces EFP Egress Filtering on the Cisco ASR 9000 Series Router.

For more information on configuring the EFP Egress Filtering feature including the associated EFP Egress Filtering commands on the Cisco ASR 9000 Series router, refer to the Egress EFP Filtering on the Cisco ASR 9000 Series Router feature module.

Flood Optimization

In prior releases the Cisco ASR 9000 Series Router acting as a bridge flooded broadcast and unknown unicast traffic to all the forwarding engines on all the line cards.

In Cisco IOS XR Software Release 3.7.2 if a pseudo wire is configured in a bridge domain all broadcast and unknown unicast traffic is flooded to all line cards in the system in order to attain fast convergence. With Cisco IOS XR Software Release 3.7.3 the flood optimization feature changes this default behavior. FGID will get programmed based on the primary paths on which the pseudo wire is going out and traffic will get flooded only to the line cards on which the pseudo wire resides. This mode is called Bandwidth Optimization mode.

But if a Fast ReRoute event occurs when fast convergence is set up it will take a longer time to complete the reroute as more hardware programming such as adding bridge ports etc. needs to be done. So for customers who are sensitive to this increased delay a command called flood mode convergence-optimized is provided in Cisco IOS XR Software Release 3.7.3. Use this flood mode convergence-optimized command to switch back to the convergence optimized mode where traffic gets flooded to all the line cards.

With this flood mode convergence-optimized command users are able to turn on/off the bandwidth optimized mode.

For more information on the flooding disable command and other Layer 2 VPLS commands on the Cisco ASR 9000 Series router, refer to the Multipoint Layer 2 Bridging Services (VPLS) Commands on Cisco ASR 9000 Series Routers section in the Cisco ASR 9000 Series Aggregation Services Router MPLS Command Reference here:

http://www.cisco.com/en/US/docs/routers/asr9000/software/mpls/command/reference/grasr9kvpls.html

ECMP (Equal Cost Multipath Protocol) Link Bundle hashing for PWs (pseudo wires) on Layer 3 NNI (Network to Network Interface) is now based on Virtual Connection labels

In Cisco IOS XR software Release 3.7.3 as part of pseudo wire flood optimization, the Layer 3 interface list for a pseudo wire is now based on Virtual Connection labels. By using ECMP Link Bundle hashing, the Layer 3 interface list for a pseudo wire can be condensed to a single Layer 3 interface. This Layer 3 interface (slot and network protocol flood mask) is derived from the ordered array of Layer 3 interface list (masks).

Early Fast Discard command

Cisco IOS XR software Release 3.7.3 adds support for the Early Fast Discard command. This command was added to process all high priority packets

Command syntax:

(config)# hw-module location <loc> early-fast-discard		
	(config-early-fast-discard)# mode [outer-encap-only | include-inner-encap]	
	(config-early-fast-discard)# vlan-cos <0-8> vlan-op [lt | ge]
	The defaults are 6 and ge (greater than or equal to)
	(config-early-fast-discard)# ip-prec <0-8> ip-op [lt | ge]	
	The defaults are 6 and ge (greater than or equal to)
	(config-early-fast-discard)# mpls-exp <0-8> mpls-op [lt | ge]	
	The defaults are 6 and ge (greater than or equal to)
(config)# no hw-module location <loc> early-fast-discard		

Power Management multiple override mechanism

Cisco IOS XR software Release 3.7.3 adds support for the user to override the Power Management feature in order to configure extra line cards without full power supply redundancy.

This feature allows a card to be forced to power up, regardless of an unprogrammed EEPROM power draw value. As with the ROMMON variable, this feature is intended for temporary use. After the cookie value has been programmed, remove this configuration by repeating the CLI command with the ''no'' option.

Command example:

RP/0/RSP0/CPU0:ios(admin-config)# hw-mod power override location <loc>
 
   

The IGMP Snooping feature no longer removes the state after a port goes down

Starting with Cisco IOS XR software Release 3.7.3, mrouter and membership states on the Cisco ASR 9000 Series Router no longer need to be relearned after a port goes down. Once a port goes down, the IGMP Snooping feature immediately removes all group membership states from that port. Once an mrouter port goes down, the IGMP Snooping feature removes the port from the list of mrouter ports and removes that port from the flood set of all multicast routes.

New CLI:

tcn_relearning [cisco | rfc4541 | none]

For more information on the IGMP Snooping feature on the Cisco ASR 9000 Series router, refer to the Implementing Layer 2 Multicast using IGMP Snooping on Cisco ASR 9000 Series Routers section in the Cisco ASR 9000 Series Aggregation Services Router Multicast Configuration Guide here:

http://www.cisco.com/en/US/docs/routers/asr9000/software/multicast/configuration/guide/mcasr9kigsn.html

The VRRP & FRR failover time is no longer greater than 1 sec after a hardware module reload

Cisco IOS XR software Release 3.7.3 improves the Cisco ASR 9000 Series Router VRRP & FRR failover time after a hardware module reload to less than or equal to one second.

The VPLS preferred path fallback enable option is now supported on the Cisco ASR 9000 Series Router

Layer 2 VPNs can provide pseudo wire resiliency through their routing protocols. When the connectivity between end-to-end PE routers fails, an alternative path to the directed LDP session and the user data takes over. With Cisco IOS XR software Release 3.7.3, the user can fall-back to the preferred path once it has been restored.

32k EFPs/HQOS/ANCP/ACL/IGMP EFP up time > 30 minutes. This enhancement provides a five minute improvement over Cisco IOS XR software Release 3.7.2.

Caveats

Caveats describe unexpected behavior in Cisco IOS XR software releases. Severity-1 caveats are the most serious caveats; severity-2 caveats are less serious.

This section lists the caveats for Cisco ASR 9000 Series Router Software Release 3.9.1 and the Cisco ASR 9000 Series platform.

Open Cisco IOS XR Software Release 3.9.1 Caveats

The following caveats apply to the Cisco ASR 9000 Series Router running Release 3.9.1 of the Cisco IOS XR software:

CSCtf93555

Basic Description:

CLI command not authorized to execute during persist time of EEM policy

Symptom:

After persist time start for EEM policy user, CLI command failed to authorize.

Conditions:

When the TACACS server is down, persist time starts for the user credentials which registered for EEM policy. If the EEM policy gets triggered and opens a vty connection and try to execute any CLI while the TACACS server is down, it failed to authorize that command.

Workaround:

None.

Recovery:

Bring the TACACS server up.

CSCte01589

Basic Description:

Unable to execute commands through telnet session

Symptom:

First show command after telnet to the router prints incomplete output and then hangs. It does not respond to "ENTER".

Conditions:

This happens after multiple VTY sessions being opened and closed at the same time.

Workaround:

None.

Recovery:

option 1

Create a new telnet session. FIRST command to execute from this session is "proc restart devc-vty".

If all the telnet sessions are exhausted, terminate one of the sessions. This frees up a session to use for recovery.

OR

option 2

Connect to the router through a Console or AUX. Recover by executing "proc restart devc-vty" command.

CSCtd17516

Basic Description:

CLI over XML Configuration Fails

Symptom:

CLI over XML configuration request fails.

Conditions:

This happens when

- CLI command lines in XML request exceeds 200 lines or more

AND

- CLI commands are split internally and it happens to be split in middle of sub-mode.

Workaround:

- No need to use CLI over XML for config commands that already support XML natively.

- Split the commands into multiple requests so that command lines of each request are less than 200 lines.

Recovery:

None.

CSCtf72035

Basic Description:

XML query equivalent to "show version | in uptime" is broken

Symptom:

XML request echoes an error in response.

Conditions:

Perform XML query equivalent to "show version | in uptime".

Workaround:

None, use CLI instead.

Recovery:

None.

CSCsy98575

Basic Description:

%SECURITY-LOCALD-3-LWA_ADD_FAIL error when Secret is added for a User

Symptom:

When a user tries to configure username and secret, the configuration succeeds, but the following console message is generated, which seems to suggest that the configuration did not succeed:

"% Failed to commit one or more configuration items. Please issue 'show configuration failed' from this session to view the errors"

Conditions:

No specific trigger is identified. This is an issue that has been observed a handful of times over several months.

Workaround:

None. Although we get the configuration failure message, operation is successful both on disk and as well as in Sysdb. No Operational Impact of this bug to other parts of this system since it is purely a configuration operation failure.

Recovery:

Do not need. Console message only, no functional impact.

CSCta71930

Basic Description:

lpts_pa tracebacks after clear cef on line card

Symptom:

An error log is printed along with the traceback when a message send to BCDL agent fails.

Conditions:

The BCDL agent has gone down thus the message send is failing. This is a very rare scenario and would not happen under normal circumstances.

Workaround:

Not required, as BCDL will come up eventually.

Further Problem Description:

The error message is just to say that BCDL agent might have gone down. This would not cause an error in lpts as BDCL will eventually come up and the messages will be sent again. The only caveat is that it might be some time before the messages are sent again. The solution would aim to put an upper bound on the resend time by having a retrying mechanism for the same.

CSCti50227

Basic Description:

Not able to modify RPL and delete prefix-set in a single commit.

Symptom:

When a policy that is attached directly or indirectly to an attach point needs to be modified, a single commit operation cannot be performed when:

Removing a set or policy referred by another policy that is attached to any attach point directly or indirectly.

Modifying the policy to remove the reference to the same set or policy that is getting removed.

Workaround:

The commit must be performed in two steps:

1. Modify the policy to remove the reference to the policy or set and then commit.

2. Remove the policy or set and commit.

Caveats Specific to the Cisco ASR 9000 Series Router

The following caveat is specific to the Cisco ASR 9000 Series platform:

CSCtg34390

Basic Description:

crash file created on "reload location all": Cause: pfm_dev_sm_perform_

Symptom:

No active RSP condition detected by the LC resulting in a PFM initiated reboot and kernel dump generation during reload of chassis.

As a result, an extra reboot history record is written (IOS-XR CLI: show reboot history location LC).

The first reboot history record will be written by the mbi-hello process which is initiated by the reload CLI. A second reboot history record will be written by the PFM process. The timestamp on the records will be 8-10 seconds apart.

Conditions:

Reload of chassis on certain nodes using "reload location all" CLI.

Workaround:

None.

CSCth19069

EoMPLS remote ethernet port shutdown not working.

Symptom:

EoMPLS remote ethernet port shutdown is not working.

Conditions:

None

Workaround:

None

Resolved Cisco IOS XR Software PSIRT-Related Caveats

CSCti62211

Basic Description:

BGP flaps due to unknown attribute

Symptom:

Cisco IOS XR Software contains a vulnerability in the Border Gateway Protocol (BGP) feature. The vulnerability manifests itself when a BGP peer announces a prefix with a specific, valid but unrecognized transitive attribute. On receipt of this prefix, the Cisco IOS XR device will corrupt the attribute before sending it to the neighboring devices. Neighboring devices that receive this corrupted update may reset the BGP peering session.

Conditions:

Affected devices running Cisco IOS XR Software corrupt the unrecognized attribute before sending to neighboring devices, but neighboring devices may be running operating systems other than Cisco IOS XR Software and may still reset the BGP peering session after receiving the corrupted update. This is per standards defining the operation of BGP.

Workaround:

No workaround. Cisco developed a fix that addresses this vulnerability and will be releasing free software maintenance upgrades (SMUs) progressively starting 28 August 2010.

A Security Advisory is posted at http://www.cisco.com/warp/public/707/cisco-sa-20100827-bgp.shtml

Upgrading Cisco IOS XR Software

Cisco IOS XR software is installed and activated from modular packages, allowing specific features or software patches to be installed, upgraded, or downgraded without affecting unrelated processes. Software packages can be upgraded or downgraded on all supported card types, or on a single card (node).

Software packages are installed from package installation envelope (PIE) files that contain one or more software components. Refer to Table 1 for a list of the Cisco ASR 9000 Series Router software feature set matrix (PIE files) and associated filenames available for the Cisco IOS XR Software Release 3.9.1 supported on the Cisco ASR 9000 Series Router.

The following URL contains links to information about how to upgrade Cisco IOS XR software:

http://www.cisco.com/web/Cisco_IOS_XR_Software/index.html

Troubleshooting

For information on troubleshooting Cisco IOS XR software, see the Cisco ASR 9000 Series Aggregation Services Routers Getting Started Guide and the Cisco ASR 9000 Series Router Troubleshooting Feature Module.

Resolving Upgrade File Issues


Note In some very rare cases inconsistencies in the content of the internal configuration files can appear. In such situations, to avoid configuration loss during upgrade, the following steps can be optionally done before activating packages:


a. Clear the NVGEN cache:

RP/0/RSP0/CPU0:PE44_ASR-9010# run nvgen -F 1
 
   

b. Create a dummy config commit:

RP/0/RSP0/CPU0:PE44_ASR-9010# config
RP/0/RSP0/CPU0:PE44_ASR-9010(config)# hostname <hostname>
RP/0/RSP0/CPU0:PE44_ASR-9010(config)# commit
RP/0/RSP0/CPU0:PE44_ASR-9010(config)# end
 
   

c. Force a commit update by using the reload command. Press "n" when the confirmation prompt appears:

RP/0/RSP0/CPU0:PE44_ASR-9010# reload
Updating Commit Database. Please wait...[OK]
Proceed with reload? [confirm] 
 
   

d. Press "n".

In some cases other activity may preclude a reload. The following message may display:
