IS-IS Commands on Cisco IOS XR Software

This module describes the commands used to configure and monitor the Intermediate System-to-Intermediate System (IS-IS) protocol.

For detailed information about IS-IS concepts, configuration tasks, and examples, see the Implementing IS-IS on Cisco IOS XR Software module in the Cisco IOS XR Routing Configuration Guide for the Cisco CRS Router.

address-family (IS-IS)

To enter address family configuration mode for configuring Intermediate System-to-Intermediate System (IS-IS) routing that use standard IP Version 4 (IPv4) and IP Version 6 (IPv6) address prefixes, use the address-family command in router configuration or interface configuration mode. To disable support for an address family, use the no form of this command.

address-family { ipv4 | ipv6 } { unicast | mulitcast }

no address-family { ipv4 | ipv6 } { unicast | multicast }

Syntax Description

ipv4

Specifies IPv4 address prefixes.

ipv6

Specifies IPv6 address prefixes.

unicast

Specifies unicast address prefixes.

multicast

Specifies multicast address prefixes.

Command Default

An address family is not specified. The default subaddress family (SAFI) is unicast.

Command Modes

Usage Guidelines

To use this command, you must be in a user group associated with a task group that includes appropriate task IDs. If the user group assignment is preventing you from using a command, contact your AAA administrator for assistance.

Use the address family command to place the router or interface in address family configuration mode. In router address family configuration mode, you can configure routing that uses standard IPv4 or IPv6 address prefixes. An address family must be specified in interface configuration mode. In interface address family configuration mode, you can alter interface parameters for IPv4or IPv6.

You must specify an address family in order to configure parameters that pertain to a single address family.

  RP/0/RP0/CPU0:router(config-isis-if)# address-family ipv4 unicast
  RP/0/RP0/CPU0:router(config-isis-if-af)#
  

address-family multicast topology (IS-IS)

To enable a multicast topology when configuring Intermediate System-to-Intermediate System (IS-IS) routing (or to place a given topology within the IS-IS interface), use the address-family multicast topology command with either IPv4 or IPv6 address prefix in the appropriate configuration mode. To disable a multicast topology in IS-IS, use the no form of this command.

address-family { ipv4 | ipv6 } multicast topology topo-name [ maximum prefix prefix-limit ]

no address-family { ipv4 | ipv6 } multicast topology topo-name

Command

Description

topology-id

Associates a topology ID with a named IS-IS topology to differentiate topologies in the domain.

adjacency-check disable

To suppress Intermediate System-to-Intermediate System (IS-IS) IP Version 4 (IPv4) or IP Version 6 (IPv6) protocol-support consistency checks that are performed prior to forming adjacencies on hello packets, use the adjacency-check disable command in address family configuration mode. To remove this function, use the no form of this command.

adjacency-check disable

no adjacency-check disable

Command Default

Adjacency check is enabled

Command Modes

Address family configuration

Command History

Release

Modification

Release 2.0

This command was introduced.

Usage Guidelines

To use this command, you must be in a user group associated with a task group that includes appropriate task IDs. If the user group assignment is preventing you from using a command, contact your AAA administrator for assistance.

IS-IS performs consistency checks on hello packets and forms an adjacency only with a neighboring router that supports the same set of protocols. A router running IS-IS for both IPv4 and IPv6 does not form an adjacency with a router running IS-IS for IPv4 only.

Use the adjacency-check disable command to suppress the consistency checks for IPv6 IS-IS and allow an IPv4 IS-IS router to form an adjacency with a router running IPv4 IS-IS and IPv6. IS-IS never forms an adjacency between a router running IPv4 IS-IS only and a router running IPv6 only.

In addition, the adjacency-check disable command suppresses the IPv4 or IPv6 subnet consistency check and allows IS-IS to form an adjacency with other routers regardless of whether they have an IPv4 or IPv6 subnet in common.

Examples

The command in the following example disables the adjacency checks:

The following example shows how the network administrator introduces IPv6 into an existing IPv4 IS-IS network and ensures that the checking of hello packet checks from adjacent neighbors is disabled until all neighbor routers are configured to use IPv6:

  RP/0/RP0/CPU0:router(config)# router isis isp
  RP/0/RP0/CPU0:router(config-isis)# address-family ipv6 |ipv4
  RP/0/RP0/CPU0:router(config-isis-af)# adjacency-check disable

attached-bit send

Configures an Intermediate System-to-Intermediate System (IS-IS) instance with an attached bit in the Level 1 link-state packet (LSP).

attached-bit send

To configure an Intermediate System-to-Intermediate System (IS-IS) instance with an attached bit in the Level 1 link-state packet (LSP), use the attached-bit send command in address family configuration mode. To remove the attached-bit send command from the configuration file and restore the system to its default condition, use the no form of this command.

attached-bit send { always-set | never-set }

no attached-bit send { always-set | never-set }

Syntax Description

always-set

Specifies to always set the attached bit in the LSP.

never-set

Specifies to never set the attached bit in the LSP.

Command Default

The attached bit is not forced to be set or unset in the LSP.

Command Modes

Address family configuration

Command History

Release

Modification

Release 3.8.0

This command was introduced and replaces the set-attached-bit command.

Usage Guidelines

To use this command, you must be in a user group associated with a task group that includes appropriate task IDs. If the user group assignment is preventing you from using a command, contact your AAA administrator for assistance.

Use the attached-bit send command to set an IS-IS instance with an attached bit in the Level 1 LSP that allows another IS-IS instance to redistribute Level 2 topology. The attached bit is used when the Level 2 connectivity from another IS-IS instance is advertised by the Level 1 attached bit.

Cisco IOS XR software does not support multiple Level 1 areas in a single IS-IS routing instance; however the equivalent functionality is achieved by redistribution of routes between two IS-IS instances by using the redistribute (IS-IS) command.

The attached bit is configured for a specific address family only if the single-topology command is not configured.


Note


If connectivity for the Level 2 instance is lost, the attached bit in the Level 1 instance LSP continues sending traffic to the Level 2 instance and causes the traffic to be dropped.

single-topology

Configures the link topology for IPv4 when IPv6 is configured.

circuit-type

To configure the type of adjacency used for the Intermediate System-to-Intermediate System (IS-IS) protocol, use the circuit-type command in interface configuration mode. To reset the circuit type to Level l and Level 2, use the no form of this command.

circuit-type { level-1 | level-1-2 | level-2-only }

no circuit-type

Syntax Description

level-1

Establishes only Level 1 adjacencies over an interface.

level-1-2

Establishes both Level 1 and Level 2 adjacencies, if possible.

level-2-only

Establishes only Level 2 adjacencies over an interface.

Command Default

Default adjacency types are Level 1 and Level 2 adjacencies.

Usage Guidelines

To use this command, you must be in a user group associated with a task group that includes appropriate task IDs. If the user group assignment is preventing you from using a command, contact your AAA administrator for assistance.

Adjacencies may not be established even if allowed by the circuit-type command. The proper way to establish adjacencies is to configure a router as a Level 1, Level 1 and Level 2, or Level 2-only system using the is-type command. Only on networking devices that are between areas (Level 1 and Level 2 networking devices) should you configure some interfaces to be Level 2-only to prevent wasting bandwidth by sending out unused Level 1 hello packets. Remember that on point-to-point interfaces, the Level 1 and Level 2 hello packets are in the same packet.

Examples

The following example shows how to configure a Level 1 adjacency with its neighbor on GigabitEthernetinterface 0/2/0/0 and Level 2 adjacencies with all Level 2-capable routers on GigabitEthernet interface 0/5/0/2:

  RP/0/RP0/CPU0:router(config)# router isis isp
  RP/0/RP0/CPU0:router(config-isis)# is-type level-1-2
  RP/0/RP0/CPU0:router(config-isis)# interface GigabitEthernet 0/2/0/0
  RP/0/RP0/CPU0:router(config-isis-if)# circuit-type level-1
  RP/0/RP0/CPU0:router(config-isis-if)# exit
  RP/0/RP0/CPU0:router(config-isis)# interface GigabitEthernet 0/5/0/2
  RP/0/RP0/CPU0:router(config-isis-if)# circuit-type level-2-only
  
  
         

In this example, only Level 2 adjacencies are established because the is-type command is configured:

  RP/0/RP0/CPU0:router(config)# router isis isp
  RP/0/RP0/CPU0:router(config-isis)# is-type level-2-only
  RP/0/RP0/CPU0:router(config-isis)# interface GigabitEthernet 0/2/0/0
  RP/0/RP0/CPU0:router(config-isis-if)# circuit-type level-1-2

Usage Guidelines

To use this command, you must be in a user group associated with a task group that includes appropriate task IDs. If the user group assignment is preventing you from using a command, contact your AAA administrator for assistance.

If a router configured with the default-information originate command has a route to 0.0.0.0 in the routing table, IS-IS originates an advertisement for 0.0.0.0 in its link-state packets (LSPs).

Without a route policy, the default is advertised only in Level 2 LSPs. For Level 1 routing, there is another process to find the default route, which is to look for the closest Level 1 and Level 2 router. The closest Level 1 and Level 2 router can be found by looking at the attached-bit (ATT) in Level 1 LSPs.

A route policy can be used for two purposes:

  • To make the router generate the default route in its Level 1 LSPs.
  • To advertise 0.0.0.0/0 conditionally.

distance (IS-IS)

To define the administrative distance assigned to routes discovered by the Intermediate System-to-Intermediate System (IS-IS) protocol, use the distance command in address family configuration mode. To remove the distance command from the configuration file and restore the system to its default condition in which the software removes a distance definition, use the no form of this command.

distance weight [ prefix mask | prefix/length | | [ prefix-list-name ] ]

no distance [ weight ] [ prefix mask | prefix/length | | [ prefix-list-name ] ]

Syntax Description

weight

Administrative distance to be assigned to IS-IS routes. Range is 1 to 255.

prefix

(Optional) The prefix argument specifies the IP address in four-part, dotted-decimal notation.

mask

(Optional) IP address mask.

/length

(Optional) The length of the IP prefix. A decimal value that indicates how many of the high-order contiguous bits of the address compose the prefix (the network portion of the address). A slash must precede the decimal value. Range is 0 to 32 for IPv4 addresses and 0 to 128 for IPv6 addresses.

(Optional) List of routes to which administrative distance applies.

Command Default

weight : 115

Command Modes

Usage Guidelines

To use this command, you must be in a user group associated with a task group that includes appropriate task IDs. If the user group assignment is preventing you from using a command, contact your AAA administrator for assistance.

An administrative distance is an integer from 1 to 255. In general, the higher the value, the lower the trust rating. An administrative distance of 255 means that the routing information source cannot be trusted at all and should be ignored. Weight values are subjective; no quantitative method exists for choosing weight values.

Use the distance command to configure the administrative distances applied to IS-IS routes when they are inserted into the Routing Information Base (RIB), and influence the likelihood of these routes being preferred over routes to the same destination addresses discovered by other protocols.

The address/prefix-length argument defines to which source router the distance applies. In other words, each IS-IS route is advertised by another router, and that router advertises an address that identifies it. This source address is displayed in the output of the show isis route detail command.

The distance command applies to the routes advertised by routers whose address matches the specified prefix. The prefix-list-name argument can then be used to refine this further so that the distance command affects only specific routes.

hello-interval seconds [ level { 1 | 2 } ]

no hello-interval [seconds] [ level { 1 | 2 } ]

Syntax Description

seconds

Integer value (in seconds) for the length of time between consecutive hello packets. By default, a value three times the hello interval seconds is advertised as the hold time in the hello packets sent. (That multiplier of three can be changed by using the hello-multiplier command.) With smaller hello intervals, topological changes are detected more quickly, but there is more routing traffic. Range is 1 to 65535 seconds.

level { 1 | 2 }

(Optional) Specifies the hello interval for Level 1 and Level 2 independently. For broadcast interfaces only.

Command Default

seconds : 10 seconds

Usage Guidelines

The hello interval can be configured independently for Level 1 and Level 2, except on serial point-to-point interfaces. (Because only a single type of hello packet is sent on serial links, it is independent of Level 1 or Level 2.) Configuring Level 1 and Level 2 independently is used on LAN interfaces.


Note


A shorter hello interval gives quicker convergence, but increases bandwidth and CPU usage. It might also add to instability in the network.


A slower hello interval saves bandwidth and CPU. Especially when used in combination with a higher hello multiplier, this strategy may increase overall network stability.

For point-to-point links, IS-IS sends only a single hello for Level 1 and Level 2, making the level keyword meaningless on point-to-point links. To modify hello parameters for a point-to-point interface, omit the level keyword.

hello-multiplier

To specify the number of Intermediate System-to-Intermediate System (IS-IS) hello packets a neighbor must miss before the router should declare the adjacency as down, use the hello-multiplier command in interface configuration mode. To restore the default value, use the no form of this command.

hello-multiplier multiplier [ level { 1 | 2 } ]

no hello-multiplier [multiplier] [ level { 1 | 2 } ]

Syntax Description

multiplier

Advertised hold time in IS-IS hello packets is set to the hello multiplier times the hello interval. Range is 3 to 1000. Neighbors declare an adjacency to this down router after not having received any IS-IS hello packets during the advertised hold time. The hold time (and thus the hello multiplier and the hello interval) can be set on an individual interface basis, and can be different between different networking devices in one area.

Using a smaller hello multiplier gives faster convergence, but can result in more routing instability. Increase the hello multiplier to a larger value to help network stability when needed. Never configure a hello multiplier to a value lower than the default value of 3.

level { 1 | 2 }

(Optional) Specifies the hello multiplier independently for Level 1 or Level 2 adjacencies.

Command Default

multiplier : 3

Usage Guidelines

To use this command, you must be in a user group associated with a task group that includes appropriate task IDs. If the user group assignment is preventing you from using a command, contact your AAA administrator for assistance.

The “holding time” carried in an IS-IS hello packet determines how long a neighbor waits for another hello packet before declaring the neighbor to be down. This time determines how quickly a failed link or neighbor is detected so that routes can be recalculated.

Use the hello-multiplier command in circumstances where hello packets are lost frequently and IS-IS adjacencies are failing unnecessarily. You can raise the hello multiplier and lower the hello interval (hello-interval (IS-IS) command) correspondingly to make the hello protocol more reliable without increasing the time required to detect a link failure.

On point-to-point links, there is only one hello for both Level 1 and Level 2. Separate Level 1 and Level 2 hello packets are also sent over nonbroadcast multiaccess (NBMA) networks in multipoint mode, such as X.25, Frame Relay, and ATM.

Examples

The following example shows how the network administrator wants to increase network stability by making sure an adjacency goes down only when many (ten) hello packets are missed. The total time to detect link failure is 60 seconds. This strategy ensures that the network remains stable, even when the link is fully congested.

  RP/0/RP0/CPU0:router(config)# router isis isp

You might want to suppress hello padding to conserve network resources. The lower the circuit speed, the higher the percentage of padding overhead. Before suppressing the hello padding, you should know your physical and data link layer configurations and have control over them, and also know your router configuration at the network layer.

For point-to-point links, IS-IS sends only a single hello for Level 1 and Level 2, making the level keyword meaningless on point-to-point links. To modify hello parameters for a point-to-point interface, omit the level keyword.

When a text password is configured, it is exchanged as clear text. Therefore, the hello-password command provides limited security.

When an hmac-md5 password is configured, the password is never sent over the network and is instead used to calculate a cryptographic checksum to ensure the integrity of the exchanged data.

For point-to-point links, IS-IS sends only a single hello for Level 1 and Level 2, making the level keyword meaningless on point-to-point links. To modify hello parameters for a point-to-point interface, omit the level keyword.

Usage Guidelines

In an IS-IS routing domain, each router is represented by a 6-byte hexadecimal system ID. When network administrators maintain and troubleshoot networking devices, they must know the router name and corresponding system ID.

Link-state packets (LSPs) include the dynamic hostname in the type, length, and value (TLV) which carries the mapping information across the entire domain. Every router in the network, upon receiving the TLV from an LSP, tries to install it in a mapping table. The router then uses the mapping table when it wants to convert a system ID to a router name.

To display the entries in the mapping tables, use the show isis hostname command.

Usage Guidelines

To use this command, you must be in a user group associated with a task group that includes appropriate task IDs. If the user group assignment is preventing you from using a command, contact your AAA administrator for assistance.

The IS-IS protocol definition requires that a received LSP with an incorrect data-link checksum be purged by the receiver, which causes the initiator of the packet to regenerate it. However, if a network has a link that causes data corruption and at the same time is delivering LSPs with correct data-link checksums, a continuous cycle of purging and regenerating large numbers of packets can occur. Because this situation could render the network nonfunctional, use this command to ignore these LSPs rather than purge the packets.

The receiving network devices use link-state packets to maintain their routing tables.

Usage Guidelines

To use this command, you must be in a user group associated with a task group that includes appropriate task IDs. If the user group assignment is preventing you from using a command, contact your AAA administrator for assistance.

When the router is configured with Level 1 routing only, this router learns about destinations only inside its area. Level 2 (interarea) routing is performed by the closest Level 1-2 router.

When the router is configured with Level 2 routing only, this router is part of the backbone, and does not communicate with Level 1 routers in its own area.

The router has one link-state packet database (LSDB) for destinations inside the area (Level 1 routing) and runs a shortest path first (SPF) calculation to discover the area topology. It also has another LSDB with link-state packets (LSPs) of all other backbone (Level 2) routers, and runs another SPF calculation to discover the topology of the backbone and the existence of all other areas.

We highly recommend that you configure the type of an IS-IS routing process to establish the proper level of adjacencies. If there is only one area in the network, there is no need to run both Level 1 and Level 2 routing algorithms.

During prolonged periods of network instability, repeated recalculation of LSPs can cause increased CPU load on the local router. Further, the flooding of these recalculated LSPs to the other Intermediate Systems in the network causes increased traffic and can result in other routers having to spend more time running route calculations.

Use the lsp-gen-interval command to reduce the rate of LSP generation during periods of instability in the network. This command can help to reduce CPU load on the router and to reduce the number of LSP transmissions to its IS-IS neighbors.

Usage Guidelines

To use this command, you must be in a user group associated with a task group that includes appropriate task IDs. If the user group assignment is preventing you from using a command, contact your AAA administrator for assistance.

Under normal conditions, the default MTU size should be sufficient. However, if the MTU size of a link is less than 1500 bytes, the LSP MTU size must be lowered accordingly on each router in the network. If this action is not taken, routing becomes unpredictable.

This guideline applies to all Cisco networking devices in a network. If any link in the network has a reduced MTU size, all devices must be changed, not just the devices directly connected to the link.


Note


Do not set the lsp-mtu command (network layer) to a value greater than the link MTU size that is set with the mtu command (physical layer).

Usage Guidelines

To use this command, you must be in a user group associated with a task group that includes appropriate task IDs. If the user group assignment is preventing you from using a command, contact your AAA administrator for assistance.

When a text password is configured, it is exchanged as clear text. Therefore, the lsp-password command provides limited security.

When an HMAC-MD5 password is configured, the password is never sent over the network and is instead used to calculate a cryptographic checksum to ensure the integrity of the exchanged data.

The recommended password configuration is that both incoming and outgoing SNPs be authenticated.


Note


To disable SNP password checking, the snp send-only keywords must be specified in the lsp-password command.


To configure an additional password, use the lsp-password accept command.

Specify a key chain to enable key chain authentication between two IS-IS peers. Use the keychain keychain-name keyword and argument to implement hitless key rollover for authentication.

The refresh interval determines the rate at which the software periodically sends the route topology information that it originates. This behavior is done to keep the information from becoming too old. By default, the refresh interval is 900 seconds (15 minutes).

LSPs must be refreshed periodically before their lifetimes expire. The refresh interval must be less than the LSP lifetime specified with this router command. Reducing the refresh interval reduces the amount of time that undetected link-state database corruption can persist at the cost of increased link utilization. (This event is extremely unlikely, however, because there are other safeguards against corruption.) Increasing the interval reduces the link utilization caused by the flooding of refreshed packets (although this utilization is very small).

To use this command, you must be in a user group associated with a task group that includes appropriate task IDs. If the user group assignment is preventing you from using a command, contact your AAA administrator for assistance.

Use the maximum-redistributed-prefixes command to prevent a misconfiguration from resulting in redistribution of excess prefixes. If IS-IS encounters more than the maximum number of prefixes, it sets a bi-state alarm. If the number of to-be-redistributed prefixes drops back to the maximum or lower—either through reconfiguration or a change in the redistribution source—IS-IS clears the alarm.

LSPs first received on subinterfaces that are not part of a mesh group are flooded to all other subinterfaces in the usual way.

LSPs first received on subinterfaces that are part of a mesh group are flooded to all interfaces except those in the same mesh group. If the blocked keyword is configured on a subinterface, then a newly received LSP is not flooded out over that interface.

To minimize the possibility of incomplete flooding, you should allow unrestricted flooding over at least a minimal set of links in the mesh. Selecting the smallest set of logical links that covers all physical paths results in very low flooding, but less robustness. Ideally you should select only enough links to ensure that LSP flooding is not detrimental to scaling performance, but enough links to ensure that under most failure scenarios, no router is logically disconnected from the rest of the network. In other words, blocking flooding on all links permits the best scaling performance, but there is no flooding. Permitting flooding on all links results in very poor scaling performance.


Note


See RFC 2973 for details about the mesh group specification.

Usage Guidelines

IS-IS traffic engineering extensions include new-style TLV objects with wider metric fields than old-style TLV objects. If you enter the metric-style wide command, a router generates and accepts only new-style TLV objects. Therefore, the router uses less memory and fewer other resources rather than generating both old-style and new-style TLV objects.

To perform MPLS traffic engineering, a router needs to generate new-style TLV objects.


Note


This discussion of metric styles and transition strategies is oriented toward traffic engineering deployment. Other commands and models might be appropriate if the new-style TLV objects are desired for other reasons. For example, a network may require wider metrics, but might not use traffic engineering.

MPLS VPN traffic forwarded using LDP labels can be dropped in the following instances:

  • A new link is introduced in the network and IS-IS has converged before LDP establishes labels.
  • An existing LDP session goes down while IS-IS adjacency is intact over the link.

In both instances, outbound LDP labels are not available for forwarding MPLS traffic. LDP IS-IS synchronization addresses the traffic drop. When the mpls ldp sync command is configured, IS-IS advertises the maximum possible link metric until LDP has converged over the link. The link is less preferred and least used in forwarding MPLS traffic. When LDP establishes the session and exchanges labels, IS-IS advertises the regular metric over the link.


Note


IS-IS advertises the maximum metric –1 (16777214) if wide metrics are configured since the maximum wide metric is specifically used for link exclusion from the shortest path first algorithm (SPF) (RFC 3784). However, the maximum narrow metric is unaffected by this definition.

Usage Guidelines

To use this command, you must be in a user group associated with a task group that includes appropriate task IDs. If the user group assignment is preventing you from using a command, contact your AAA administrator for assistance.

The identifier of the router acts as a stable IP address for the traffic engineering configuration. This IP address is flooded to all nodes. For all traffic engineering tunnels originating at other nodes and ending at this node, you must set the tunnel destination to the traffic engineering router ID of the destination node, because that is the address used by the traffic engineering topology database at the tunnel head for its path calculation.


Note


We recommend that loopback interfaces be used for MPLS TE, because they are more stable than physical interfaces.

Usage Guidelines

To use this command, you must be in a user group associated with a task group that includes appropriate task IDs. If the user group assignment is preventing you from using a command, contact your AAA administrator for assistance.

Under most circumstances, one and only one NET should be configured.

A NET is a network service access point (NSAP) where the last byte is always 0. On a Cisco router running IS-IS, a NET can be 8 to 20 bytes in length. The last byte is always the n-selector and must be 0. The n-selector indicates to which transport entity the packet is sent. An n-selector of 0 indicates no transport entity and means that the packet is for the routing software of the system.

The six bytes directly preceding the n-selector are the system ID. The system ID length is a fixed size and cannot be changed. The system ID must be unique throughout each area (Level 1) and throughout the backbone (Level 2).

All bytes preceding the system ID are the area ID.

A maximum of three NETs for each router is allowed. In rare circumstances, it is possible to configure two or three NETs. In such a case, the area this router is in has three area addresses. Only one area still exists, but it has more area addresses.

Configuring multiple NETs can be temporarily useful in network reconfiguration in which multiple areas are merged, or in which one area is split into more areas. Multiple area addresses enable you to renumber an area individually as needed.

NSF allows an Intermediate System-to-Intermediate System (IS-IS) instance to restart using checkpointed adjacency and link-state packet (LSP) information, and to perform restart with no impact on its neighbor routers. In other words, there is no impact on other routers in the network due to the destruction and recreation of adjacencies and the system LSP.

When a hello packet sent with the NSF restart flag set is not acknowledged, it is re-sent. Use the nsf interface-expires command to control the number of times the NSF hello is re-sent. When this limit is reached on an interface, any neighbor previously known on that interface is assumed to be down and the initial shortest path first (SPF) calculation is permitted, provided that all other necessary conditions are met.

The total time period available for adjacency reestablishment (interface-timer * interface-expires) should be greater than the expected total NSF restart time.

The nsf interface-expires command applies only to Internet Engineering Task Force (IETF)-style NSF. It has no effect if Cisco-proprietary NSF is configured.

Usage Guidelines

To use this command, you must be in a user group associated with a task group that includes appropriate task IDs. If the user group assignment is preventing you from using a command, contact your AAA administrator for assistance.

Priorities can be configured for Level 1 and Level 2 independently. Specifying Level 1 or Level 2 resets priority only for Level 1 or Level 2 routing, respectively. Specifying no level allows you to configure all levels.

The priority is used to determine which router on a LAN is the designated router or Designated Intermediate System (DIS). The priorities are advertised in the hello packets. The router with the highest priority becomes the DIS.

In the Intermediate System-to-Intermediate System (IS-IS) protocol, there is no backup designated router. Setting the priority to 0 lowers the chance of this system becoming the DIS, but does not prevent it. If a router with a higher priority comes online, it takes over the role from the current DIS. For equal priorities, the higher MAC address breaks the tie.

Usage Guidelines

To use this command, you must be in a user group associated with a task group that includes appropriate task IDs. If the user group assignment is preventing you from using a command, contact your AAA administrator for assistance.

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

Propagating Level 2 routes 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 packets (LSPs). If you want to leak Level 2 routes into Level 1, you must enable that behavior by using this command.

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

  • rib-metric-as-internal–Use the rib-metric-as-internal keyword to use RIB metric and set IS-IS internal metric-type

Any route with an internal metric (however large the metric is) is preferred over a route with external metric (however small the metric is).

Use the rib-metric-as-external and rib-metric-as-internal keywords to preserve RIB metrics when redistributing routes from another IS-IS router instance or another protocol.

route-policy route-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 IS-IS.

match { internal | external [ 1 | 2 ] | nsaa-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 interarea 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.

When redistributing routes (into IS-IS) using both command keywords for setting or matching of attributes and a route policy, the routes are run through the route policy first, followed by the keyword matching and setting.


Use the redistribute command to control the redistribution of routes between separate IS-IS instances. To control the propagation of routes between the levels of a single IS-IS instance, use the propagate level command.

Only IPv4 OSPF addresses can be redistributed into IS-IS IPv4 address families and only IPv6 OSPFv3 prefixes can be distributed into IS-IS IPv6 address families.

In this example, IS-IS instance isp_A readvertises all of the routes of IS-IS instance isp_B in Level 2 LSP. Note that the level-2 keyword affects which levels instance isp_A advertises the routes in and has no impact on which routes from instance isp_B are advertised. (Any Level 1 routes from IS-IS instance isp_B are included in the redistribution.

retransmit-interval (IS-IS)

To configure the amount of time between retransmission of each Intermediate System-to-Intermediate System (IS-IS) link-state packet (LSP) on a point-to-point link, use the retransmit-interval command in interface configuration mode. To restore the default value, use the no form of this command.

retransmit-interval seconds [ level { 1 | 2 } ]

no retransmit-interval [ seconds [ level { 1 | 2 } ] ]

Syntax Description

seconds

Time (in seconds) between consecutive retransmissions of each LSP. It is an integer that should be greater than the expected round-trip delay between any two networking devices on the attached network. Range is 0 to 65535 seconds.

level { 1 | 2 }

(Optional) Specifies routing Level 1 or Level 2 independently.

Usage Guidelines

To use this command, you must be in a user group associated with a task group that includes appropriate task IDs. If the user group assignment is preventing you from using a command, contact your AAA administrator for assistance.

To prevent needless transmission results, the seconds argument should be conservative.

The retransmit-interval command has no effect on LAN (multipoint) interfaces. On point-to-point links, the value can be increased to enhance network stability.

Because retransmissions occur only when LSPs are dropped, setting this command to a higher value has little effect on reconvergence. The more neighbors networking devices have, and the more paths over which LSPs can be flooded, the higher this value can be made.

Use the set-attached bit command to set an IS-IS instance with an attached bit in the Level 1 LSP that allows another IS-IS instance to redistribute Level 2 topology. The attached bit is used when the Level 2 connectivity from another IS-IS instance is advertised by the Level 1 attached bit.

Cisco IOS XR software does not support multiple Level 1 areas in a single IS-IS routing instance. But the equivalent functionality is achieved by redistribution of routes between two IS-IS instances by using the redistribute (IS-IS) command.

The attached bit is configured for a specific address family only if the single-topology command is not configured.


Note


If connectivity for the Level 2 instance is lost, the attached bit in the Level 1 instance LSP continues sending traffic to the Level 2 instance and causes the traffic to be dropped.

Usage Guidelines

To use this command, you must be in a user group associated with a task group that includes appropriate task IDs. If the user group assignment is preventing you from using a command, contact your AAA administrator for assistance.

Use the set-overload-bit command to force the router to set the overload bit in its nonpseudonode link-state packets (LSPs). Normally the setting of the overload bit is allowed only when a router experiences problems. For example, when a router is experiencing a memory shortage, the reason might be that the link-state database is not complete, resulting in an incomplete or inaccurate routing table. If the overload bit is set in the LSPs of the unreliable router, other routers can ignore the router in their SPF calculations until it has recovered from its problems. The result is that no paths through the unreliable router are seen by other routers in the Intermediate System-to-Intermediate System (IS-IS) area. However, IP prefixes directly connected to this router are still reachable.

The set-overload-bit command can be useful when you want to connect a router to an IS-IS network, but do not want real traffic flowing through it under any circumstances.

Routers with overload bit set are:

  • A test router in the lab, connected to a production network.
  • A router configured as an LSP flooding server, for example, on a nonbroadcast multiaccess (NBMA) network, in combination with the mesh group feature.

Table 6 show isis checkpoint lsp Field Descriptions

Field

Description

Level

Routers with Level 1 or Level 2 adjacency configured.

LSPID

LSP identifier. The first six octets form the system ID of the router that originated the LSP.

The next octet is the pseudonode ID. When this byte is zero, the LSP describes links from the system. When it is nonzero, the LSP is a so-called nonpseudonode LSP. This is similar to a router link-state advertisement (LSA) in the Open Shortest Path First (OSPF) protocol. The LSP describes the state of the originating router.

For each LAN, the designated router for that LAN creates and floods a pseudonode LSP, describing all systems attached to that LAN.

The last octet is the LSP number. If there is more data than can fit in a single LSP, the LSP is divided into multiple LSP fragments. Each fragment has a different LSP number. An asterisk (*) indicates that the LSP was originated by the system on which this command is issued.

Chkpt ID

Unique ID issued to the checkpoint at its creation.

Table 8 show isis database verbose Field Descriptions

Field

Description

LSPID

LSP identifier. The first six octets form the system ID of the router that originated the LSP.

The next octet is the pseudonode ID. When this byte is zero, the LSP describes links from the system. When it is nonzero, the LSP is a so-called nonpseudonode LSP. This is similar to a router link-state advertisement (LSA) in the Open Shortest Path First (OSPF) protocol. The LSP describes the state of the originating router.

For each LAN, the designated router for that LAN creates and floods a pseudonode LSP, describing all systems attached to that LAN.

The last octet is the LSP number. If there is more data than can fit in a single LSP, the LSP is divided into multiple LSP fragments. Each fragment has a different LSP number. An asterisk (*) indicates that the LSP was originated by the system on which this command is issued.

LSP Seq Num

Sequence number for the LSP that allows other systems to determine if they have received the latest information from the source.

LSP Checksum

Checksum of the entire LSP packet.

LSP Holdtime

Time the LSP remains valid (in seconds). An LSP hold time of zero indicates that this LSP was purged and is being removed from the link-state database (LSDB) of all routers. The value indicates how long the purged LSP stays in the LSDB before being completely removed.

ATT/P/OL

ATT—Attach bit. This bit indicates that the router is also a Level 2 router, and it can reach other areas. Level 1-only routers and Level 1-2 routers that have lost connection to other Level 2 routers use the Attach bit to find the closest Level 2 router. They point to a default route to the closest Level 2 router.

P—P bit. Detects if the intermediate system is area partition repair capable. Cisco and other vendors do not support area partition repair.

OL—Overload bit. Determines if the IS is congested. If the Overload bit is set, other routers do not use this system as a transit router when calculating routers. Only packets for destinations directly connected to the overloaded router are sent to this router.

Area Address

Reachable area addresses from the router. For Level 1 LSPs, these are the area addresses configured manually on the originating router. For Level 2 LSPs, these are all the area addresses for the area to which this route belongs.

NLPID

Network Layer Protocol Identifier.

Hostname

Hostname of the node.

IP Address

IP address of the node.

Metric

IS-IS metric for the cost of the adjacency between the originating router and the advertised neighbor, or the metric of the cost to get from the advertising router to the advertised destination (which can be an IP address, an end system (ES), or a Connectionless Network Service (CLNS) prefix).

MPLS SRLG

MPLS SRLG TLV information per neighbor, identified by hostname or system ID.

Interface IP Address

Local interface IP address.

Neighbor IP Address

Remote interface IP address.

Flags

Flags carried in SRLG TLV. The Least Significant Bit (LSB) is set if the interface is numbered.

SRLGs

SRLG values.

Table 9 show isis database-log Field Descriptions

Field

Description

WHEN

Elapsed time (in hh:mm:ss) since the event was logged.

LSPID

LSP identifier. The first six octets form the system ID of the router that originated the LSP.

The next octet is the pseudonode ID. When this byte is zero, the LSP describes links from the system. When it is nonzero, the LSP is a so-called nonpseudonode LSP. This is similar to a router link-state advertisement (LSA) in the Open Shortest Path First (OSPF) protocol. The LSP describes the state of the originating router.

For each LAN, the designated router for that LAN creates and floods a pseudonode LSP, describing all systems attached to that LAN.

The last octet is the LSP number. If there is more data than can fit in a single LSP, the LSP is divided into multiple LSP fragments. Each fragment has a different LSP number. An asterisk (*) indicates that the LSP was originated by the system on which this command is issued.

New LSP

New router or pseudonode appearing in the topology.

Old LSP

Old router or pseudonode leaving the topology.

Op

Operation on the database: inserted (INS) or replaced (REP).

Seq Num

Sequence number for the LSP that allows other systems to determine if they have received the latest information from the source.

Holdtime

Time the LSP remains valid (in seconds). An LSP hold time of 0 indicates that this LSP was purged and is being removed from the link-state database (LSDB) of all routers. The value indicates how long the purged LSP stays in the LSDB before being completely removed.

OL

Overload bit. Determines if the IS is congested. If the Overload bit is set, other routers do not use this system as a transit router when calculating routers. Only packets for destinations directly connected to the overloaded router are sent to this router.

Table 22 show isis spf-log ipv4 unicast Field Descriptions

Field

Description

Level

IS-IS level of the router.

Timestamp

Time when the SPF calculation started.

Duration

Number of milliseconds taken to complete this SPF run. Elapsed time is wall clock time, not CPU time.

Nodes

Number of routers and pseudonodes (LANs) that make up the topology calculated in this SPF run.

Trig Count

Number of events that triggered this SPF run. When there is a topology change, often multiple link-state packets (LSPs) are received in a short time. Depending on the configuration of the spf-interval command, a router may wait for a fixed period of time before running a router calculation. This count denotes the number of triggering events that occurred while the router was waiting to run the calculation. For a full description of the triggering events, see List of Triggers.

First Trigger LSP

Table 26 show isis statistics Field Descriptions

Field

Description

Fast PSNP cache (hits/tries):

Number of successful lookups (hits) along with the number of lookup attempts (tries). To save time or processing power when receiving multiple copies of the same LSP, IS-IS attempts to look up incoming LSPs to see if they have been received recently.

Fast CSNP cache (hits/tries):

Number of successful lookups (hits) along with the number of lookup attempts (tries). To reduce CSNP construction time, IS-IS maintains a cache of CSNPs and attempts to look up CSNP in this cache before transmission on the interface.

Fast CSNP cache updates:

Number of times the CSNP cache has been updated since the last clearing of statistics. The cache is updated on LSP addition or removal from the database.

LSP checksum errors received:

Number of internal checksum errors received in LSPs.

IIH (LSP/SNP) dropped:

Number of hello, LSP, and SNP messages dropped.

IIH (UPD) Max Queue size:

Maximum number of queued packets.

Average transmit times and rate:

Average time taken to transmit the pdu type across all interfaces and the corresponding rate at which the pdu type is being transmitted.

Average process times and rate:

Average time taken to process an incoming pdu type across all interfaces and the corresponding rate at which the pdu type is being received.

LSPs sourced (new/refresh):

Number of LSPs this IS-IS instance has created or refreshed. To find more details on these LSPs, use the show isis lsp-log command.

SPF calculations:

Number of shortest path first (SPF) calculations. SPF calculations are performed only when the topology changes. They are not performed when external routes change. The interval at which SPF calculations are performed is configured using the spf-interval command.

iSPF calculations:

Number of incremental shortest path first (iSPF) calculations. iSPF calculations are performed only when ISPF has been configured in the isis address family configuration submode.

Partial Route Calculations:

Number of partial route calculations (PRCs). PRCs are processor intensive. Therefore, it may be useful to limit their number, especially how often a PRC is done, especially on slower networking devices. Increasing the PRC interval reduces the processor load on the router, but might slow the rate of convergence. The interval at which PRC calculations are performed is configured using the spf-interval command.

Level-(1/2) (LSPs/CSNPs/PSNPs/Hellos) (sent/rcvd):

Number of LSPs, Complete Sequence Number Packets (CSNPs), Partial Sequence Number Packets (PSNPs), and hello packets sent or received on this interface.

PTP Hellos (sent/rcvd):

Point-to-point (PTP) hellos sent and received.

LSP Retransmissions:

Total number of retransmissions on each IS-IS LSP on a point-to-point interface. The LSP retransmission interval can be configured using the retransmit-throttle-interval command.

Level-(1.2) DRElections:

Total number of Designated Intermediate System elections that have taken place. These counts are maintained on an individual level basis.

LSP Flooding Duplicates:

Number of duplicate LSPs filtered from flooding to the neighbor. In case of parallel interfaces to the same neighbor, IS-IS optimizes the flooding by avoiding sending the same LSP copy on other interfaces.

single-topology

To configure the link topology for IP Version 4 (IPv4) when IP Version 6 (IPv6) is configured, use the single-topology command in address family configuration mode. To remove the single-topology command from the configuration file and restore the system to its default condition, use the no form of this command.

single-topology

no single-topology

Command Default

Performs in multitopology mode in which independent topologies for IPv4 and IPv6 are running in a single area or domain.

Command Modes

Modification

Release 2.0

This command was introduced.

Usage Guidelines

To use this command, you must be in a user group associated with a task group that includes appropriate task IDs. If the user group assignment is preventing you from using a command, contact your AAA administrator for assistance.

Use the single-topology command to allow Intermediate System-to-Intermediate System (IS-IS) for IPv6 to be configured on interfaces along with an IPv4 network protocol. All interfaces must be configured with the identical set of network protocols, and all routers in the IS-IS area (for Level 1 routing) or the domain (for Level 2 routing) must support the identical set of network layer protocols on all interfaces.

When single-topology support for IPv6 is being used, only old-style type, length, and value (TLV) objects may be used and a single shortest path (SPF) individual level is used to compute IPv4 (if configured) and IPv6 routes. The use of a single SPF means that both IPv4 IS-IS and IPv6 IS-IS routing protocols must share a network topology.

To allow link information to be shared between IPv4 and IPv6, you must configure the single-topology command for an address family. In single-topology IPv6 mode, the configured metric is always the same for both IPv4 and IPv6.

Usage Guidelines

To use this command, you must be in a user group associated with a task group that includes appropriate task IDs. If the user group assignment is preventing you from using a command, contact your AAA administrator for assistance.

SPF calculations are performed only when the topology changes. They are not performed when external routes change.

Use the spf-interval command to control how often the software can perform the SPF calculation. The SPF calculation is processor intensive. Therefore, it may be useful to limit how often this calculation is done, especially when the area is large and the topology changes often. Increasing the SPF interval reduces the processor load of the router, but potentially slows the rate of convergence.

spf prefix-priority (IS-IS)

To assign a priority to an ISIS prefix for customizing the RIB update sequence, use thespf prefix-priority command in address family configuration mode. To restore default values, use the no form of this command.

spf prefix-priority [ level { 1 | 2 } ] { critical | high | medium } { access-list-name | tag tag }

no spf prefix-priority [ level { 1 | 2 } ] { critical | high | medium } [ access-list-name | tag tag ]

Syntax Description

level { 1 | 2 }

(Optional) Enables the assignment of a priority to Level 1 or Level 2 independently.

critical

Assigns a critical priority.

high

Assigns a high priority.

medium

Assigns a medium priority.

access-list-name

Name of an access list.

tag tag

Specifies a tag to indicate priority. The tag argument range is 1 to 4294967295.

Command Default

By default, IPv4 prefixes with a length of 32 and IPv6 prefixes with a length of 128 are given medium priority. The remaining prefixes are given low priority.

Usage Guidelines

To use this command, you must be in a user group associated with a task group that includes appropriate task IDs. If the user group assignment is preventing you from using a command, contact your AAA administrator for assistance.

Use the spf prefix-priority command to change the sequence of prefix updates to the RIB after an SPF is run. ISIS installs prefixes in the RIB according to the following priority order:

Critical > High > Medium > Low

The spf prefix-priority command supports prefix lists for the first three priorities. The unmatched prefixes are updated with low priority.

If a spf prefix-priority is specified, the default behavior of prioritizing either length 32 or 128 prefixes for IPv4 or IPv6, respectively, as medium is disabled.

summary-prefix (IS-IS)

To create aggregate addresses for the Intermediate System-to-Intermediate System (IS-IS) protocol, use the summary-prefix command in address family configuration mode. To restore the default behavior, use the no form of this command.

Syntax Description

address

Summary address designated for a range of IPv4 addresses. The address argument must be in four-part, dotted-decimal notation.

/ prefix-length

Length of the IPv4 or IPv6 prefix. A decimal value that indicates how many of the high-order contiguous bits of the address compose the prefix (the network portion of the address). A slash must precede the decimal value.

ipv6-prefix

Summary prefix designated for a range of IPv6 prefixes. The ipv6-prefix argument must be in the form documented in RFC 2373, in which the address is specified in hexadecimal using 16-bit values between colons.

level { 1 | 2 }

(Optional) Redistributes routes into Level 1 or Level 2 and summarizes them with the configured address and mask value.

tag tag

Sets a tag value. The value range is 1- 4294967295.

Command Default

All redistributed routes are advertised individually.

Both Level 1 and Level 2 are configured if no level is specified.

Multiple groups of addresses can be summarized for a given level. Routes learned from other routing protocols can also be summarized. The metric used to advertise the summary is the smallest metric of all the more-specific routes. Use the summary-prefix command to help reduce the size of the routing table.

This command also reduces the size of the link-state packets (LSPs) and thus the link-state database. It also helps ensure stability, because a summary advertisement depends on many more specific routes. If one more-specific route flaps, in most cases, this flap does not cause a flap of the summary advertisement.

The drawback of summary addresses is that other routes might have less information to calculate the most optimal routing table for all individual destinations.


Note


When IS-IS advertises a summary prefix, it automatically inserts the summary prefix into the IP routing table but labels it as a “discard” route entry. Any packet that matches the entry is discarded to prevent routing loops. When IS-IS stops advertising the summary prefix, the routing table entry is removed.

The following example shows how to redistribute Open Shortest Path First (OSPF) routes into IS-IS. In the OSPF routing table, IPv6 routes exist for 3ffe:f000:0001:0000::/64, 3ffe:f000:0002:0000::/64, 3ffe:f000:0003:0000::/64, and so on. This example shows only 3ffe:f000::/24 advertised into IPv6 IS-IS Level 2.

  RP/0/RP0/CPU0:router(config)# router isis isp
  RP/0/RP0/CPU0:router(config-isis)# address-family ipv6 unicast
  RP/0/RP0/CPU0:router(config-isis-af)# redistribute ospfv3 2 level-2
