Information About MSDP

You can use MSDP to exchange multicast source information between multiple BGP-enabled Protocol Independent Multicast (PIM) sparse-mode domains. For information about PIM, see Chapter 4 "Configuring PIM." For information about BGP, see the Cisco Nexus 3000 Series NX-OS Unicast Routing Configuration Guide.

When a receiver for a group matches the group transmitted by a source in another domain, the rendezvous point (RP) sends PIM join messages in the direction of the source to build a shortest path tree. The designated router (DR) sends packets on the source-tree within the source domain, which may travel through the RP in the source domain and along the branches of the source-tree to other domains. In domains where there are receivers, RPs in those domains can be on the source-tree. The peering relationship is conducted over a TCP connection.

Figure 6-1 shows four PIM domains. The connected RPs (routers) are called MSDP peers because each RP maintains its own set of multicast sources. Source host 1 sends the multicast data to group 224.1.1.1. On RP 6, the MSDP process learns about the source through PIM register messages and generates Source-Active (SA) messages to its MSDP peers that contain information about the sources in its domain. When RP 3 and RP 5 receive the SA messages, they forward them to their MSDP peers. When RP 5 receives the request from host 2 for the multicast data on group 224.1.1.1, it builds a shortest path tree to the source by sending a PIM join message in the direction of host 1 at 192.1.1.1.

Figure 6-1 MSDP Peering Between RPs in Different PIM Domains

When you configure MSDP peering between each RP, you create a full mesh. Full MSDP meshing is typically done within an autonomous system, as shown between RPs 1, 2, and 3, but not across autonomous systems. You use BGP to do loop suppression and MSDP peer-RPF to suppress looping SA messages. For more information about mesh groups, see the "MSDP Mesh Groups" section.


Note You do not need to configure MSDP in order to use Anycast-RP (a set of RPs that can perform load balancing and failover) within a PIM domain. For more information, see the "Configuring a PIM Anycast-RP Set" section.


For detailed information about MSDP, see RFC 3618.

This section includes the following topics:

SA Messages and Caching

MSDP Peer-RPF Forwarding

MSDP Mesh Groups

Virtualization Support

SA Messages and Caching

MSDP peers exchange Source-Active (SA) messages that the MSDP software uses to propagate information about active sources. SA messages contain the following information:

Source address of the data source

Group address that the data source uses

IP address of the RP or the configured originator ID

When a PIM register message advertises a new source, the MSDP process reencapsulates the message in an SA message that is immediately forwarded to all MSDP peers.

The SA cache holds the information for all sources learned through SA messages. Caching reduces the join latency for new receivers of a group because the information for all known groups can be found in the cache. You can limit the number of cached source entries by configuring the SA limit peer parameter. You can limit the number of cached source entries for a specific group prefix by configuring the group limit global parameter.

The MSDP software sends SA messages for each group in the SA cache every 60 seconds or at the configured SA interval global parameter. An entry in the SA cache is removed if an SA message for that source and group is not received within SA interval plus 3 seconds.

MSDP Peer-RPF Forwarding

MSDP peers forward the SA messages that they receive away from the originating RP. This action is called peer-RPF flooding. The router examines the BGP routing table to determine which peer is the next hop in the direction of the originating RP of the SA message. This peer is called a reverse path forwarding (RPF) peer.

If the MSDP peer receives the same SA message from a non-RPF peer in the direction of the originating RP, it drops the message. Otherwise, it forwards the message to all its MSDP peers.

MSDP Mesh Groups

You can use MSDP mesh groups to reduce the number of SA messages that are generated by peer-RPF flooding. In Figure 6-1, RPs 1, 2, and 3 receive SA messages from RP 6. By configuring a peering relationship between all the routers in a mesh and then configuring a mesh group of these routers, the SA messages that originate at a peer are sent by that peer to all other peers. SA messages received by peers in the mesh are not forwarded. An SA message that originates at RP 3 is forwarded to RP 1 and RP 2, but these RPs do not forward those messages to other RPs in the mesh.

A router can participate in multiple mesh groups. By default, no mesh groups are configured.

Virtualization Support

You can define multiple virtual routing and forwarding (VRF) instances. The MSDP configuration applies to the selected VRF.

You can use the show commands with a VRF argument to provide a context for the information displayed. The default VRF is used if no VRF argument is supplied.

For information about configuring VRFs, see the Cisco Nexus 3000 Series NX-OS Unicast Routing Configuration Guide.

Configuring MSDP

You can establish MSDP peering by configuring the MSDP peers within each PIM domain.

To configure MSDP peering, follow these steps:


Step 1 Select the routers to act as MSDP peers.

Step 2 Enable the MSDP feature. See the "Enabling the MSDP Feature" section.

Step 3 Configure the MSDP peers for each router identified in Step 1. See the "Configuring MSDP Peers" section.

Step 4 Configure the optional MSDP peer parameters for each MSDP peer. See the "Configuring MSDP Peer Parameters" section.

Step 5 Configure the optional global parameters for each MSDP peer. See the "Configuring MSDP Global Parameters" section.

Step 6 Configure the optional mesh groups for each MSDP peer. See the "Configuring MSDP Mesh Groups" section.



Note The MSDP commands that you enter before you enable MSDP are cached and then run when MSDP is enabled. Use the ip msdp peer or ip msdp originator-id command to enable MSDP.

4. (Optional) copy running-config startup-config

DETAILED STEPS

 
Command
Purpose

configure terminal

Example:

switch# configure terminal

switch(config)#

(Optional) Shows feature commands that you specified.

Step 4 

copy running-config startup-config

Example:

switch(config)# copy running-config startup-config

(Optional) Saves configuration changes.

Configuring MSDP Peers

You can configure an MSDP peer when you configure a peering relationship with each MSDP peer that resides either within the current PIM domain or in another PIM domain. MSDP is enabled on the router when you configure the first MSDP peering relationship.

BEFORE YOU BEGIN

Ensure that you have installed the LAN Base Services license and enabled PIM and MSDP.

Ensure that you configured BGP and PIM in the domains of the routers that you will configure as MSDP peers.

SUMMARY STEPS

1. configure terminal

2. ip msdp peer peer-ip-address connect-source interface [remote-as as-number]

3. Repeat Step 2 for each MSDP peering relationship.

4. (Optional) show ip msdp summary [vrf vrf-name | known-vrf-name | all]

5. (Optional) copy running-config startup-config

Purpose

Step 1

ip msdp peer peer-ip-address connect-source interface [remote-as as-number]

Example:

switch(config)# ip msdp peer 192.168.1.10 connect-source ethernet 2/1 remote-as 8

Configures an MSDP peer with the specified peer IP address. The software uses the source IP address of the interface for the TCP connection with the peer. The interface can take the form of type slot/port. If the AS number is the same as the local AS, then the peer is within the PIM domain; otherwise, this peer is external to the PIM domain. By default, MSDP peering is disabled.

Note MSDP peering is enabled when you use this command.

Step 3 

Repeat Step 2 for each MSDP peering relationship by changing the peer IP address, the interface, and the AS number as appropriate.

Step 4

Remote Multicast Source Support

Beginning with Cisco NX-OS Release 5.0(3)U2(1), if multicast traffic is received from a source which is not attached, the (S,G) route is not formed and all traffic continuously hits the CPU. You can enable the remote multicast source support to redirect the traffic.

When this feature is enabled, static mroute to the source is configured using the ip mroute src-ip next-hop command and when the prebuild spt is enabled using the ip pim pre-build-spt command, the (S,G) route is formed without traffic hitting the CPU. Also, for these sources, register messages are sent periodically and MSDP SA messages are sent to the peer.
