DLSw+ RSVP Bandwidth Reservation


Feature Summary

The DLSw+ RSVP Bandwidth Reservation feature allows DLSw+ to reserve network bandwidth for the DLSw+ TCP connection between DLSw+ peers.

Benefits

Although it has been possible to reserve bandwidth for a particular existing DLSw+ peer connection through the RSVP command line interface (CLI) support in Cisco IOS software, the CLI required prior knowledge of the TCP ports for which the reservation was being made. Because DLSw+ used one well-known port and one randomly assigned port, the reservation could not be made until after the peer connection was active.

The DLSw+ RSVP Bandwidth Reservation feature permits new DLSw+ peer connections to request bandwidth reservations automatically upon connection, thereby removing the need for user intervention after the peer is connected. This feature ensures the reservation survives a network or device failure and that the DLSw+ traffic carried over a TCP connection is not affected by congestion.

List of Terms

Resource Reservation Protocol (RSVP)—IETF standard for allowing applications to request specific Quality of Service (QOS) for specific flows (as specified in RFC 2205).

Platforms

The DLSw+ RSVP Bandwidth Reservation feature is supported on the following platforms:

Cisco 1600 series

Cisco 1700 series

Cisco 2500 series

Cisco 2600 series

Cisco 3600 series

Cisco 3800 series

Cisco 4000 series (Cisco 4000, 4000-M, 4500, 4500-M, 4700, 4700-M)

Cisco 7200 series

Cisco 7500 series

Supported MIBs and RFCs

No MIBs are supported by this feature.

The DLSw+ RSVP Bandwidth Reservation feature supports the following RFCs:

RFC 1795

RFC 2166

RFC 2205

Functional Description

The user specifies the amount of RSVP reserved bandwidth for DLSw+ in the following ways:

Globally—When the user configures the dlsw rsvp command, DLSw+ uses these values for initiating RSVP to all its peers.

Per peer —When the user configures the dlsw remote peer tcp command, DLSw+ configures the RSVP parameters specifically for this peer connection.

Type of peer connection—When the user configures either the dlsw peer-on-demand-defaults or dlsw prom-peer defaults command, DLSw+ uses the configured RSVP parameters for peer-on-demand and promiscuous peer connections, respectively.

In any of these situations, the user turns off RSVP by setting the average-bit-rate or maximum-burst values to 0.

Because RSVP requires both a sender and a receiver, the DLSw+ RSVP Bandwidth Reservation feature must be implemented on both devices of a DLSw+ connection. However, RSVP does not need to be configured on all devices that are in the IP routed path between two DLSw+ peers. In this type of configuration the devices in the middle must support only IP RSVP; they do not need to be configured for the new DLSw+ RSVP Bandwidth Reservation feature or of DLSw+. The devices between the peers prioritize the IP packets belonging to the DLSw+ session according to the IP TOS settings. If, however, the devices in the middle do not support IP RSVP, end-to-end bandwidth is not guaranteed.

In the case of priority peers, RSVP bandwidth reservation is done only for the highest priority connection to the peer (TCP port 2065). If the user configures priority queuing and RSVP on the same peer, the user must ensure that the RSVP designated traffic is assigned to the highest priority TCP peer connection.

If the users change the average-bit-rate or maximum-burst settings without removing the existing RSVP bandwidth reservation, a message warns the users that they are removing the existing reservation and that they need to request a new reservation with new values.

Configuration Tasks

Enable DLSw+ RSVP Bandwidth Reservation

Issuing the dlsw rsvp command enables the DLSw+ RSVP Bandwidth Reservation feature on the router and sets the RSVP parameters for all of its peer connections.

To enable the DLSw+ RSVP Bandwidth Reservation feature, use the following command in global configuration mode:

Command
Purpose

dlsw rsvp {default | [average-bit-rate maximum-burst]}

Enable DLSw+ RSVP Bandwidth Reservation feature on the local peer.


Enable RSVP Support on Specific Peers

After RSVP is globally enabled, the user must enable RSVP on specific peers. The user can retain the average-bit-rate and maximum-burst values set in the dlsw rsvp command or the user can override these values for any particular peer connection (remote, promiscuous, or peer-on-demand) by configuring the dlsw remote peer, dlsw prom-peer-defaults, or dlsw peer-on-demand-defaults command.

Remote Peers

To enable RSVP support for a remote peer connection, use the following command in global configuration mode:

Command
Purpose

dlsw remote peer [rsvp {global | [average-bit-rate maximum burst]}]

Configures RSVP parameters for a specific peer connection.


Promiscuous Peers

To enable RSVP support for a promiscuous peer connection, use the following command in global configuration mode:

Command
Purpose

dlsw prom-peer-defaults [rsvp {global | learn | [average-bit-rate maximum burst]}]

Configures RSVP parameters for this promiscuous peer's connection.


Peer-on-Demand Peers

To enable RSVP support for a peer-on-demand connection, use the following command in global configuration mode

Command
Purpose

dlsw peer-on-demand-defaults [global | average-bit-rate maximum burst]

Configures RSVP parameters for this peer-on-demand peer's connection.


Verify DLSw+ RSVP Bandwidth Reservation feature

To verify that the RSVP PATH messages for DLSw+ are sent and that the feature is working correctly, use the following command in global configuration mode:

Command
Purpose

show ip rsvp sender

Verifies that the RSVP PATH messages for DLSw+ are being sent.


To verify whether the RSVP RESV messages for DLSw+ are sent all the way through the RSVP network to the remote peer, issue the following command in global configuration mode:

Command
Purpose

show ip rsvp request

Verifies that the RSVP RESV messages for DLSw+ are being sent.


To verify that the RSVP bandwidth reservations are in place for the DLSw+ peers, issue the following command in global configuration mode:

Command
Purpose

show ip rsvp reservation

Verifies that the RSVP reservations are configured for a peer.


Disable the DLSw+ RSVP Bandwidth Reservation feature

To disable the DLSw+ RSVP Bandwidth Reservation feature for all peers, issue the following command in global configuration mode:

Command
Purpose

no dlsw rsvp

Disables the DLSw+ RSVP Bandwidth Reservation feature.


Setting the average-bit-rate and maximum burst values to 0 in the dlsw remote peer tcp, dlsw prom-peer defaults, and dlsw peer-on-demand defaults commands turns off RSVP for a particular peer connection.


Note   The reservations made by the DLSw+ RSVP commands can be deleted by the global RSVP commands (for example, no ip rsvp reservation).


Configuration Examples

Command Mode

Global configuration

Usage Guidelines

This command first appeared in Cisco IOS Release 10.3. The following keywords and arguments first appeared in Cisco IOS Release 11.1: dynamic, inactivity minutes, linger minutes, no-llc minutes and timeout seconds. The following keywords and arguments first appeared in Cisco IOS Release 11.2: dest-mac mac-address, dmac-output-list access-list-number, linger minutes.

SNA Dial-on-Demand Routing allows switched links to be closed during idle periods. To enable this feature, set the keepalive option to 0 and configure the timeout option. When the dynamic option is configured, the keepalive option is automatically set to 0.

To enhance DDR cost savings, configure the TCP connection to a remote peer to be dynamically established (that is, established only when there is DLSw data to send). You can also configure the TCP connection to terminate after a specified period of idle time on the peer or after a specified period of no active LLC sessions on the peer.

You cannot use both no-llc and inactivity in a command specifying a dynamic peer.

When you need to permit access to a single MAC address, the dest-mac option is an easier option than the dmac-output-list option.

Use the linger option to specify that a backup peer will remain connected for a specified period of time after the primary connection is gone.

When the priority option on the dlsw remote-peer command is configured, DLSw+ automatically activates four TCP ports to that remote peer (ports 2065, 1981, 1982, and 1983) and assigns traffic to specific ports. Furthermore, if APPN is running with DLSw+ and you specify the priority option on the dlsw remote-peer command, then the SNA TOS maps APPN COS to TCP TOS and will preserve the APPN COS characteristics throughout the network.

The rif passthru option works only on Token Ring LANs via SRB. Other LAN types, such as SDLC and QLLC, are not supported. The RIF passthru feature is supported with TCP encapsulation and it disables local acknowledgment.

The following features are not supported with the DLSw+ RIF Passthru feature:

Border peers

Peer-on-demand peers

Dynamic peers

Backup peers

Setting the average-bit-rate or maximum burst rate to 0 turns off RSVP for this peer.

The following example specifies a TCP encapsulation connection for remote peer transport:

dlsw remote-peer 0 tcp 10.2.17.8

The following example specifies a TCP peer as backup to a primary FST peer:

dlsw remote-peer 0 fst 10.2.18.9
dlsw remote-peer 0 tcp 10.2.17.8 backup-peer 10.2.18.9

Related Commands

show dlsw peers

dlsw rsvp

Use the dlsw rsvp global configuration command to enable the DLSw+ RSVP Bandwidth Reservation feature on the local peer. Use the no form of this command to disable the DLSw+ RSVP Bandwidth Reservation feature for all peers in the router.

dlsw rsvp {default | [average-bit-rate maximum burst]}
no dlsw rsvp {default | [average-bit-rate maximum burst]}

Syntax Description

default

(Optional) Sets the average bit rate to 10 Kbps and the maximum burst rate to 28 KBps.

average-bit-rate

(Optional) Average bit rate (kilobits per second) to reserve up to 75 percent of the total bits on the interface. The valid range is 1 to 4,294,967.

maximum burst

(Optional) Maximum burst size (kilobytes of data in queue). The valid range is 1 to 4,294,967.


Default

The default values for the average-bit-rate and maximum burst rate are 10 Kbps and 28 KBps, respectively.

Usage Guidelines

This command first appeared in Cisco IOS Release 12.0(3)T.

The DLSw+ RSVP Bandwidth Reservation feature does not require that all peers in a network have RSVP configured. However, the feature does require that the end peer devices are configured with RSVP and that all devices in the middle are IP RSVP capable.

The default value assumes that the DLSw+ peer is connected via a 56 Kbps link. If this is not the case, then the default values will likely not produce optimal results. Even if the line speed is 56 Kbps, the default values (10 Kbps average-bit-rate and 28 KBps maximum burst rate) may not be optimal in a particular network environment and should be changed accordingly.

Example

The following example configures the DLSw+ RSVP Bandwidth Reservation feature with an average-bit-rate of 10 Kbps and a maximum-burst rate of 28 KBps:

dlsw rsvp default
