Activating Cisco CSR 1000V Licenses

When the Cisco CSR 1000V first boots, the router boots in evaluation mode. The network interfaces are activated but throughput is limited to 2.5 Mbps and the feature support is limited. Activate the software licenses to obtain the throughput and feature support provided by the license. For information about the available licenses in your software version, see the Cisco CSR 1000V Series Cloud Services Router Release Notes . The Cisco CSR 1000V supports the following options to activate the software licenses:

  • Cisco Software Licensing (CSL)

Installing the Cisco CSR 1000V licenses using Cisco Software Licensing (CSL) is similar to other Cisco router platforms. See Cisco Software Licensing (CSL)

  • Cisco Smart Licensing

Beginning with Cisco IOS XE Release 3.14S (controlled availability), the Cisco CSR 1000V supports activation using Cisco Smart Licensing. See Cisco Smart Licensing.

Cisco Software Licensing (CSL)

The procedure for installing the Cisco CSR 1000V licenses using Cisco Software Licensing (CSL) is similar to other Cisco router platforms. For information on obtaining and installing Cisco CSR 1000V licenses using the standard Cisco software activation procedures, see the Software Activation Configuration Guide, Cisco IOS XE Release 3S and the Cisco IOS Software Activation Command Reference.

See the following sections for information about CSL licensing for the Cisco CSR 1000V Series:

Understanding the Cisco CSR 1000V Memory Allocation

The feature add-on licenses add memory for the Cisco CSR 1000V, but the memory is allocated to both the IOSd component and the data plane component, with the allocations depending on the licenses installed.

Multiple 4 GB add-on licenses can be installed. The broadband feature license adds 4 GB of additional memory, and additional 4 GB add-on licenses can be installed.

The following table lists the memory allocation depending on the amount VM memory and the feature licenses installed. In the table, 4G license indicates a single 4 GB memory add-on license, while BB indicates the broadband feature license.


Note Restrictions apply when installing memory add-on licenses with a broadband feature license. For more information, see the “Installing Broadband Feature License” section.

Installing Broadband Feature License

Beginning with Cisco IOS XE 3.13S, the Cisco CSR 1000V supports the Broadband Network Gateway feature set and the Intelligent Services Gateway feature set. The required broadband feature license (L-CSR-BB-1K=) provides up to 4 GB of additional memory and support for up to 1000 broadband sessions.

The following restrictions apply:

  • The APPX feature license with a minimum of 1 Gbps maximum throughput must be installed.
  • You can install multiple broadband feature licenses to increase the number of broadband sessions. However, installing additional broadband feature licenses will not add more memory. To add more memory beyond the 4 GB installed with the first broadband feature license, you must install a separate memory add-on license.
  • If both a broadband feature license and memory add-on licenses are installed, then the broadband license takes higher priority than any memory add-on licenses installed. When the Cisco CSR 1000V is reloaded, the broadband feature license takes effect first, before any installed memory add-on licenses.
  • We recommend that you install the broadband feature license before installing any memory add-on licenses.
  • The VM must have enough memory allocated to accommodate the additional memory. See Table 9-1 for more information.

For more information about configuring broadband support, see the Broadband Access Aggregation and DSL Configuration Guide, Cisco IOS XE Release 3S and the Intelligent Services Gateway Configuration Guide, Cisco IOS XE Release 3S .

Router(config)# platform broadband 1K

Adds support for the number of broadband sessions to accommodate the added broadband feature license(s).

You can add 1000 sessions for each broadband feature license you are planning to install. For example, if you plan to add two broadband feature licenses, enter the value as 2K.

Step 8

platform memory add memory

 

Router(config)# platform memory add 4096

(Optional) Adds the memory allocation to the Cisco CSR 1000V to accommodate added memory license(s).

Add 4096 MB for each memory license you are planning to install. For example, if you plan to add two memory licenses, add 8192 MB of memory.

Note The broadband feature license adds 4 MB of additional memory. If you want to add more memory, you must use this command. Adding more broadband feature licenses does not add more memory.

Step 9

Router# reload

Restarts the Cisco CSR 1000V to enable the memory add-on license to be activated.

Step 13

show license detail

 

Router# show license detail

Displays the license information to verify the installation of the broadband feature license(s) and memory license(s).

Step 1

show platform software vmem info

 
router# show platform software vmem info

Verifies the updated memory allocation on the Cisco CSR 1000V.

Step 1

(Optional) Install memory add-on licenses as needed. See the “Installing Memory Add-on License” section.

 

The following is an example of the show license command with details of a broadband feature license shown:

Router# show license | begin bb
Index 76 Feature: bb_1K
Period left: Life time
License Type: Permanent
License State: Active, In Use
License Count: 1/1/0 (Active/In-use/Violation)
License Priority: Medium
Index 77 Feature: mem_4G
 

Determining the License Status

You can install multiple licenses on a Cisco CSR 1000V. To determine if a license is active, enter the show license or show license detail command. The display indicates the license status. The following are the possible states for license:

  • Active, In Use

This state indicates that the license is active and is in use by the Cisco CSR 1000V.

  • Active, Not in Use

This state indicates that the license is installed on the Cisco CSR 1000V, but is not currently being used.

  • Inactive

This state indicates that the license is installed on the Cisco CSR 1000V but is no longer valid. For example, a license that has reached the end of the subscription term is shown as inactive.

The following example shows a Cisco CSR 1000V with two licenses installed, an AX technology license and a Security technology license:

router# show license detail
Index: 1 Feature: ax_1G Version: 1.0
License Type: Paid Subscription
Start Date: N/A, End Date: Nov 10 2014
License State: Active, In Use
License Count: Non-Counted
License Priority: Medium
Store Index: 0
Store Name: Primary License Storage
Index: 2 Feature: sec_1G Version: 1.0
License Type: Permanent
License State: Active, Not in Use
License Count: Non-Counted
License Priority: Medium
Store Index: 1
Store Name: Primary License Storage
 

The AX technology license is shown as Active and in use, while the Security technology license is Active but not in use. To use the Security technology license, the license boot level command needs to be configured to “security” and the Cisco CSR 1000V must then be reloaded.

The following example of the show version command shows that the Cisco CSR 1000V has an AX technology license installed, but that the license boot level command has been set to “security”, but the Cisco CSR 1000V has not yet been reloaded.

router# show version | inc Level
License Level: ax
Next reload license Level: security

Migrating Technology Package Licenses to Cisco IOS XE 3.13S

Beginning with Cisco IOS XE 3.13S, the names of the technology package licenses have changed. The base feature content is the same, but the names as shown in the licenses and displays have changed.

  • The Standard technology package was changed to the IPBase technology package.
  • The Advanced technology package was changed to the Security technology package.
  • The Premium technology package was changed to the AX package.

If you migrated either a Standard or Advanced technology package license from a previous version to Cisco IOS XE 3.13S, then the show version and show license commands display the old license names, which is expected behavior. The new license names display when you enter the show running configuration command.

In the following example, the show running configuration command following the migration shows the new “security” technology package :

Router# show running | include level
license boot level security
 

However, in the show version output, the migrated license displays as the old “advanced” technology package name, as shown in the following example:

Router# show version | include License Level
License Level: advanced
 

In the show license detail output, the feature license also shows the old advanced license package name, as shown in the following example:

Router# show license detail
Index: 1 Feature: adv_100M Version: 1.0
License Type: Permanent
License State: Active, In Use
License Count: Non-Counted
License Priority: Medium
Store Index: 0
Store Name: Primary License Storage
 

No further configuration is required. To verify the correct feature set name for the migrated license, use the show running configuration command.

Determining the AWS License Type

When you deploy Cisco CSR 1000V instances from Cisco CSR 1000V Amazon Machine Images (AMIs) from Amazon Web Services, the license displays differ depending on whether you deployed a Bring Your Own License (BYOL) or an hourly-usage license.

  • If the show license command shows the license as “advance, internal_service” or a similar designation, then the instance uses an hourly-usage license purchased on Amazon Web Services.

The following example displays the license information for an hourly-usage instance:

router# show license
Index 1 Feature: ax
Index 2 Feature: internal_service
 
  • If the show license command shows a list of supported licenses with various throughput levels, then the instance is a BYOL instance.

The following example displays the license information for a BYOL instance:

router# show license
Index 1 Feature: advanced
Index 2 Feature: standard
Index 3 Feature: ax
Index 4 Feature: security
Index 5 Feature: lite
Index 6 Feature: appx
Index 7 Feature: ipbase
Index 8 Feature: prem_10M
Index 9 Feature: prem_50M
Index 10 Feature: prem_100M
Index 11 Feature: prem_250M
Index 12 Feature: prem_500M
Index 13 Feature: prem_500M_8G
Index 14 Feature: prem_1G
Index 15 Feature: prem_1G_16G
Index 16 Feature: prem_2500M
Index 17 Feature: prem_5G
Index 18 Feature: prem_10G
Index 19 Feature: prem_200G
Index 20 Feature: ax_10M
Index 21 Feature: ax_50M
Index 22 Feature: ax_100M
Index 23 Feature: ax_250M
Index 24 Feature: ax_500M
Index 25 Feature: ax_500M_8G
Index 26 Feature: ax_1G
 
  • The license boot level and platform hardware throughput-level commands are not available with hourly-usage license. These commands are only supported on Cisco CSR 1000V instances with BYOL licenses.

Cisco Smart Licensing

Beginning with Cisco IOS XE Release 3.14S, the Cisco CSR 1000V supports activation using Cisco Smart Licensing.

  • To use Cisco Smart Licensing, you must first configure the Call Home feature and obtain Cisco Smart Call Home Services.
  • For Cisco IOS XE 3.14S and higher, the following Cisco IOS XE technology packages are supported: IPBase, Security, AX and APPX
  • Cisco Smart Licensing uses the Cisco Smart Software Manager for managing licenses. To access the Cisco Smart Software Manager, use the following URL:

https://tools.cisco.com/rhodui/index

For more information about Cisco Smart Software Manager, see the Cisco Smart Software Manager User Guide , which is accessible from the Cisco Smart Software Manager tool.

Managing Throughput License Notifications

Understanding the License-Based Restriction on Aggregate Bandwidth

The Cisco CSR 1000V includes a license shaper that may restrict the aggregate bandwidth of the router’s interfaces. For example, if a 50 Mbps license is installed, then a maximum of 25 Mbps of bidirectional traffic is possible.

The license shaper regulates the throughput on interfaces for both priority traffic and non-priority traffic:

  • (Cisco IOS XE 3.10S and earlier) The license shaper regulates the throughput on non-management interfaces only. The GigabitEthernet 0 dedicated management interface is not counted.
  • (Cisco IOS XE 3.11S and later) The license shaper regulates the throughput on all interfaces.

Throughput limits are checked globally, not on a per-interface basis. The license shaper does not distinguish between different types of traffic, such as for IPSec or NAT. If the throughput level is exceeded, then packets may get discarded.

Figure 9-1 shows how the license shaper, also known as a traffic shaper, works. In this example, the four interfaces on the Cisco CSR 1000V are passing an aggregated traffic level of 60 Mbps. Because this exceeds the 50 Mbps license-enforced maximum throughput, 10 Mbps of traffic is discarded.

Figure 9-1 Cisco CSR 1000V License Shaper Example

 

To check the license-based performance limiter value, use the following command for your interface:

Router# show platform hardware qfp active feature qos queue out int GigabitEthernet1 hier det | inc max:
 
orig_max : 0 , max: 33333 child policy-map
orig_max : 0 , max: 500000 parent policy-map
orig_max : 0 , max: 1050000000 interface rate limiter
orig_max : 0 , max: 2500000 license performance limiter
orig_max : 0 , max: 10000000000 entry for ROOT/SIP infra (ignore rate)

 

The value for the license performance limiter field should match the current maximum throughput level as shown with the show platform hardware throughput-level command.


Note The license shaper includes an extra scheduler node in the default HQF hierarchy. The Cisco CSR 1000V does not provide an option to detect congestion for a particular node in the HQF hierarchy.


For more information about verifying the VM performance indicators, see your hypervisor documentation.

To verify the actual throughput, use the following command:

Router# show platform hardware qfp active datapath utilization summary
 
CPP 0: 5 secs 1 min 5 min 60 min
Input: Total (pps) 59232 59234 59237 59234
(bps) 58757104 58757824 58760840 58757880
Output: Total (pps) 48839 48835 48833 48833
(bps) 50011264 50012072 50009312 498768736
Processing: Load (pct) 33 34 34 34
 

In the example, the input rate shown in bold is close to 60 Mbps. The output rate shown in bold is close to 50 Mbps. In this case, the input rate exceeds 50 Mbps, the maximum license rate allowed.

The following command displays the number of packages dropped when the maximum throughput is exceeded:

Router# show platform hardware qfp active statistics drop clear | exc _0_
 
-------------------------------------------------------------------------
Global Drop Stats Packets Octets
-------------------------------------------------------------------------
TailDrop 2018258 256333010
 

When the actual throughput level approaches the maximum allowed by the installed license, you will receive an alert message similar to the following (the message may differ depending on the release version):

Dec 13 22:00:29.699: %BW_LICENSE-3-THROUGHPUT_THRESHOLD_LEVEL: F0: cpp_ha: Average throughput rate exceeded 95 percent of licensed bandwidth 3 times, sample period 300 seconds, in last 24 hours
 

When the throughput exceeds the maximum allowed bandwidth set by the license, you will receive an alert message similar to the following (Cisco IOS XE 3.12S and later):

*Dec 13 22:00:29.699: %BW_LICENSE-4-THROUGHPUT_MAX_LEVEL: F0: cpp_ha: Average throughput rate exceeded the total licensed bandwidth 50000000 bps and dropped 7 times, sample period 300 seconds, in last 24 hours
 

You can configure the QoS policies at the interface level to guarantee that high-priority traffic is not dropped. For more information, see the Quality of Service Solutions Configuration Guide Library, Cisco IOS XE Release 3S .

Managing Throughput Notifications

Beginning with Cisco IOS XE 3.13S, you can configure the Cisco CSR 1000V to notify you when a certain percentage of the maximum throughput level is reached. The maximum allowable throughput is based on the installed throughput license.

By default, when the Cisco CSR 1000V first boots, the throughput level notification is enabled, and notifications are sent when the router reaches 95 percent of the maximum throughput level. The throughput level is measured every 300 seconds. When the router is rebooted, the threshold and interval level settings configured using the set platform hardware throughput-monitor command are retained.

SUMMARY STEPS

1. set platform hardware throughput-monitor throughput percentage interval seconds

DETAILED STEPS

 

Command or Action
Purpose

Step 1

set platform hardware throughput-monitor throughput percentage interval seconds

 

Router# set platform hardware throughput-monitor throughput 85 interval 30

Configures the hardware throughput monitor settings. The throughput percentage value represents the percentage of the maximum throughput at which the system notifies you. The valid range is from 75 to 95, and the default value is 95 percent.

The interval value represents how often the system measures the throughput level. The valid range is from 30 to 86400 seconds. The default value is 300 seconds.

To display the platform hardware throughput monitor settings, use the show platform hardware throughput-monitor parameters command, as shown in the following example:

Router# show platform hardware throughput-monitor parameters
Throughput monitor parameters
 
Throughput monitor threshold: 95 percent
Throughput monitor interval: 300 seconds
Throughput monitor status: enabled
 

The following example shows a console log message received when the average throughput has exceeded 95 percent of the maximum throughput with a sample period of 300 seconds:

Dec 13 22:00:29.699: %BW_LICENSE-3-THROUGHPUT_THRESHOLD_LEVEL: F0: cpp_ha: Average throughput rate exceeded 95 percent of licensed bandwidth 3 times, sample period 300 seconds, in last 24 hours
 

The following example shows a console log message received when the average throughput approaches maximum allowed throughput set by the installed license:

Dec 13 22:00:29.699: %BW_LICENSE-4-THROUGHPUT_MAX_LEVEL: F0: cpp_ha: Average throughput rate exceeded the total licensed bandwidth 50000000 bps and dropped packets 7 times, sample period 300 seconds, in last 24 Hours
 

To disable the platform hardware throughput monitor, perform the following step:

SUMMARY STEPS

1. set platform hardware throughput-monitor disable

DETAILED STEPS

 

Command or Action
Purpose

Step 1

set platform hardware throughput-monitor-disable

 

Router# set platform hardware throughput-monitor disable

Disables the platform hardware throughput-monitor.

Requesting a New Virtual UDI

The Cisco CSR 1000V license is node-locked to the vUDI. If you clone the Cisco CSR 1000V to a new VM instance, the vUDI is in most cases automatically updated when the router first boots up on the cloned machine. However, if the vUDI is not automatically updated, you must manually request a new vUDI on the cloned VM instance.


Caution Requesting a new vUDI will invalidate the existing license. If you later need to rehost the license due to a system failure, you may need to perform additional steps on the Cisco Software Licensing portal. For more information on rehosting the Cisco CSR 1000V license, see Appendix A, “Rehosting the Cisco CSR 1000V License.”.

Perform the following step in EXEC mode:

SUMMARY STEPS

1. request license new-udi

DETAILED STEPS
