Configurable System Controller Reset Threshold—With a redundant supervisor engine, if a TM_DATA_PARITY_ERROR, TM_LINK_ERR_INBAND, or TM_NPP_PARITY_ERROR error occurs, the affected supervisor engine reloads.

Without a redundant supervisor engine, if a TM_DATA_PARITY_ERROR, TM_LINK_ERR_INBAND, or TM_NPP_PARITY_ERROR error occurs, one of the following happens:

  • If the system controller reset threshold has not been reached, reset the system controller ASIC.
  • If the system controller reset threshold has been reached, reload the supervisor engine.

The default system controller reset threshold value is 1, configurable with the platform system-controller reset-threshold threshold_value command. The value range is 1 through 100.

TM_DATA_PARITY_ERROR, TM_LINK_ERR_INBAND, and TM_NPP_PARITY_ERROR errors cause system messages.

  • Before the threshold is reached, the errors cause the following system messages:

%SYSTEM_CONTROLLER-<>-THRESHOLD
%SYSTEM_CONTROLLER-<>-ERROR
%SYSTEM_CONTROLLER-<>-MISTRAL_RESET

  • After the threshold is reached, the errors cause the following system messages:

%SYSTEM_CONTROLLER-<>-ERROR
%SYSTEM_CONTROLLER-<>-FATAL

Configurable System Controller Reset Threshold—With a redundant supervisor engine, if a TM_DATA_PARITY_ERROR, TM_LINK_ERR_INBAND, or TM_NPP_PARITY_ERROR error occurs, the affected supervisor engine reloads.

Without a redundant supervisor engine, if a TM_DATA_PARITY_ERROR, TM_LINK_ERR_INBAND, or TM_NPP_PARITY_ERROR error occurs, one of the following happens:

  • If the system controller reset threshold has not been reached, reset the system controller ASIC.
  • If the system controller reset threshold has been reached, reload the supervisor engine.

The default system controller reset threshold value is 1, configurable with the platform system-controller reset-threshold threshold_value command. The value range is 1 through 100.

TM_DATA_PARITY_ERROR, TM_LINK_ERR_INBAND, and TM_NPP_PARITY_ERROR errors cause system messages.

  • Before the threshold is reached, the errors cause the following system messages:

%SYSTEM_CONTROLLER-<>-THRESHOLD
%SYSTEM_CONTROLLER-<>-ERROR
%SYSTEM_CONTROLLER-<>-MISTRAL_RESET

  • After the threshold is reached, the errors cause the following system messages:

%SYSTEM_CONTROLLER-<>-ERROR
%SYSTEM_CONTROLLER-<>-FATAL

  • OSPF for Routed Access—OSPF for Routed Access OSPF for routed access is designed specifically to enable customers to extend Layer 3 routing capabilities to the access or Wiring Closet. OSPF for routed access supports only one OSPFv2 and one OSPFv3 instance with a maximum number of 200 dynamically learned routes. With the typical topology (hub and spoke) in a campus environment, where the wiring closets (spokes) are connected to the distribution switch (hub) forwarding all nonlocal traffic to the distribution layer, the wiring closet switch need not hold a complete routing table. In your best practice design, the distribution switch sends a default route to the wiring closet switch to reach inter-area and external routes (OSPF stub or totally stub area configuration). Refer to the following link for more details:

http://www.cisco.com/en/US/docs/solutions/Enterprise/Campus/routed-ex.html

The IP Base image supports OSPF for routed access. The IP Services image is required if you need multiple OSPFv2 and OSPFv3 instances without route restrictions. Additionally, IP Services is required to enable the VRF-lite feature.

  • Flash MIB enhancements—The Flash MIB Enhancements feature allows sorting of flash files according to device, partition, and file indexes. Beginning with Cisco IOS Release 12.2(33)SXI, the Flash MIB Enhancements feature adds the user functionality to sort flash files based on file type. The feature also introduces the snmp mib flash cache interval command to set the frequency of the data collection process that enables sorting of data stored in ciscoFlashFileTable. The command also enables the cache for ciscoFlashFileTable to speed up access to data. For more information about setting the data collection interval, see the snmp mib flash cache interval command in the Cisco IOS Network Management Command Reference at the following URL:

  • Any Transport over MPLS (AToM) Features:

Not supported with PFC3A

Supported on WAN ports

Ethernet over MPLS (EoMPLS)

Frame Relay over MPLS (FRoMPLS)

ATM Single Cell Relay over MPLS-VC Mode (CRoMPLS)

ATM AAL5 over MPLS (AAL5oMPLS)

HDLC over MPLS (HDLCoMPLS) —Note these guidelines and restrictions:

HDLCoMPLS supports core-facing ports only on Enhanced FlexWAN modules and Shared Port Adapter (SPA) Interface Processors (SIPs).

PPP over MPLS (PPPoMPLS)—Note these guidelines and restrictions:

All PPP negotiations (for example, link control protocol [LCP] negotiations) and keepalives are end to end from CE to CE. The PE routers do not participate in PPP negotiations.

Multilink PPPoMPLS (MLPPPoMPLS) is not supported, but it can be emulated. To emulate MLPPPoMPLS, each member link of the MLPPP bundle on a CE requires a corresponding PPPoMPLS tunnel on the PE router that it directly connects to. For example, if an MLPPP bundle has three member links, you must configure three PPPoMPLS tunnels on each PE with each tunnel corresponding to a member link.

Note • With PFC3, NSF with SSO supports multicast traffic.

  • NSF with SSO redundancy mode supports IPv4. NSF with SSO redundancy mode does not support IPv6, IPX, or MPLS.
  • These protocols can coexist with NSF with SSO redundancy mode, but there is no stateful support for them:

MPLS and LDP

GLBP

HSRP

VRRP

Following an NSF with SSO switchover, traffic loss occurs on the links where the protocols are configured until the protocols converge.


 

  • Clear hardware interface counters—See this publication:

http://www.cisco.com/en/US/docs/ios/mcl/allreleasemcl/all_book.html

  • CNS Interactive CLI—Network management applications can use the Cisco Networking Services (CNS) agents to manage network routers. The CNS agent provides the capability to send commands to a router from a programmable source. The CNS Interactive CLI feature introduces a new XML interface that allows you to send interactive commands to a router, such as commands that generate prompts for user input. A benefit of this feature is that interactive commands can be aborted before they have been fully processed. For example, for commands that generate a significant amount of output, the XML interface can be customized to limit the size of the output or the length of time allowed for the output to accumulate. The capability to use a programmable interface to abort a command before its normal termination (similar to manually aborting a command) can greatly increase the efficiency of diagnostic applications that might use this functionality. The new XML interface also allows for multiple commands to be processed in a single session. The response for each command is packaged together and sent in a single response event.

  • IP-in-IP tunneling and generic routing encapsulation (GRE) tunneling (hardware-assisted)—The PFC3 and DFC3s support the following tunnel commands:

tunnel destination

tunnel mode gre

tunnel mode ipip

tunnel source

tunnel ttl

tunnel tos

Other supported types of tunneling run in software on the MSFC3. The PFC3 does not provide hardware acceleration for tunnels configured with the tunnel key command.

The tunnel ttl command (default 255) sets the TTL of encapsulated packets.

The tunnel tos command, if present, sets the ToS byte of a packet when it is encapsulated. If the tunnel tos command is not present and QoS is not enabled, the ToS byte of a packet sets the ToS byte of the packet when it is encapsulated. If the tunnel tos command is not present and QoS is enabled, the ToS byte of a packet as modified by PFC QoS sets the ToS byte of the packet when it is encapsulated.

To configure GRE Tunneling and IP in IP Tunneling, refer to these publications:

http://www.cisco.com/en/US/docs/ios/12_2/interface/configuration/guide/icflogin.html

http://www.cisco.com/en/US/docs/ios/12_2/interface/command/reference/irfshoip.html

To configure the tunnel tos and tunnel ttl commands, refer to this publication:

http://www.cisco.com/en/US/docs/ios/12_0s/feature/guide/12s_tos.html

Note the following information about tunnels:

Each hardware-assisted tunnel must have a unique source address. Hardware-assisted tunnels cannot share a source address even if the destination addresses are different. Use secondary addresses on loopback interfaces or create multiple loopback interfaces. Failure to use unique source addresses may result in control plane failures when software path congestion occurs. (CSCdy72539)

Each tunnel interface uses one internal VLAN.

Each tunnel interface uses one additional router MAC address entry per router MAC address.

The PFC3A does not support any PFC QoS features on tunnel interfaces.

The PFC3B and PFC3BXL support PFC QoS features on tunnel interfaces.

In releases earlier than Release 12.2(18)SXE, the PFC3 does not support GRE tunnel encapsulation and de-encapsulation of multicast traffic.

The MSFC supports tunnels configured with egress features on the tunnel interface. Examples of egress features are output Cisco IOS ACLs, NAT and PAT (for inside to outside translation), TCP intercept, and encryption.

  • MQC: distribution of remaining bandwidth (supported only on WAN ports)—You configure QoS features on an interface using the modular QoS CLI (MQC). Using MQC, you create service policies for traffic classes and attach the policies to an interface. You can use MQC to specify how the remaining bandwidth is distributed among the interface or subinterface output queues. The remaining bandwidth is the available bandwidth left on an interface or subinterface after all guaranteed traffic is accounted for. The amount of remaining bandwidth available for use is determined by the excess information rate (EIR) configured for the queue.

The bandwidth remaining percent command allows you to configure the remaining bandwidth for output queues. The aggregate of all user-configured EIR bandwidth percentages cannot exceed 100 percent. If the aggregate of all remaining bandwidth is less than 100 percent, the remainder is evenly split among user queues (including the default queue) that do not have a remaining bandwidth percentage configured. The minimum EIR value of each output queue is 1.

This example shows how to use the bandwidth remaining percent command to distribute percentages of remaining bandwidth to various traffic classes in a policy map:

Router# configure terminal
Enter configuration commands, one per line. End with CNTL/Z.
Router(config)# policy-map myPolicy
Router(config-pmap)# class class-default
Router(config-pmap-c)# bandwidth remaining percent 20
Router(config-pmap-c)# class prec1
Router(config-pmap-c)# bandwidth remaining percent 30
Router(config-pmap-c)# class prec2
Router(config-pmap-c)# bandwidth remaining percent 10
Router(config-pmap-c)# bandwidth percent 50
Router(config-pmap-c)# end
Router# show policy-map myPolicy
Policy Map myPolicy
Class prec1
bandwidth remaining percent 30
Class prec2
bandwidth percent 50
bandwidth remaining percent 10
Class class-default
bandwidth remaining percent 20
Router#

  • Policy-based routing (PBR) with hardware assist for route-map sequences that use the match ip address , set ip next-hop , and set ip default next-hop PBR keywords.

To configure PBR, refer to the Cisco IOS Quality of Service Solutions Configuration Guide , Release 12.2, “Classification,” “Configuring Policy-Based Routing,” at this URL:

http://www.cisco.com/en/US/docs/ios/12_2/qos/configuration/guide/qcfpbr.html

When configuring PBR, follow these guidelines and restrictions:

Releases earlier than Release 12.2(33)SXH use the syntax from Release 12.1, which supports preempt as a keyword for the standby priority command. Release 12.2(33)SXH and later releases use the Release 12.2 syntax, which requires standby preempt and standby priority to be entered as separate commands:

http://www.cisco.com/en/US/docs/ios/ipapp/command/reference/iap_s5.html#standby_priority

http://www.cisco.com/en/US/docs/ios/ipapp/command/reference/iap_s5.html#standby_preempt

The PFC provides hardware support for PBR configured on a tunnel interface.

The PFC does not provides hardware support for PBR configured with the set ip next-hop keywords if the next hop is a tunnel interface.

If the MSFC address falls within the range of a PBR ACL, traffic addressed to the MSFC is policy routed in hardware instead of being forwarded to the MSFC. To prevent policy routing of traffic addressed to the MSFC, configure PBR ACLs to deny traffic addressed to the MSFC. (CSCse86399)

Any options in Cisco IOS ACLs that provide filtering in a PBR route map that would cause flows to be sent to the MSFC3 to be switched in software are ignored. For example, logging is not supported in ACEs in Cisco IOS ACLs that provide filtering in PBR route maps.

PBR traffic through switching module ports where PBR is configured is routed in software if the switching module resets. (CSCee92191)
