– Does not support association of GRE tunnel with the physical interface it uses to reach the tunnel destination since the IP-Tunnel MIB lacks this information.
– Does not update LAG port status if LAGs are discovered running both
snmp_find_interfaces. The workaround is to run only
- Juniper routers: Signaled standby LSP path option is not available from the standard MPLS-TE MIB for Juniper routers. Only the active path option name is collected.
- IOS XR routers
– IGP topology collected through
- IS-IS link-state database with TE extensions contains incorrect interface “admin-weights” (TE metric) on Intel-based routers.
- IPv6 IS-IS link-state database does not contain IPv6 interface addresses or parallel interfaces. This information is only available when IOS XR supports IS-IS IPv6 TE extensions. The
snmp_find_interfaces tool collects this information.
– MAC Accounting is not supported.
snmp_find_rsvp does not set the Standby value in the <LSPPaths> table for signaled backup paths.
find_bgp does not build BGP pseudo-nodes among internal ASNs.
find_bgp does not collect BGP peers under PE-CE VRFs.
parse_configs does not accurately detect the bandwidth of some Juniper ‘ge’ interfaces that have a capacity of 10 Gbps.
- TE Extended Admin Groups (EAGs), also known as extended affinities, are not supported.
- Port circuits are not built for LAG/bundle members whose nodes are not within the same IGP instance as the AS.
SAM-OSS Integration with Snapshots
sam_getplan does not populate the <NodeTraffic> table. This table is derived and populated when
sam_getplan and SNMP tools are used together.
sam_getplan does not populate the NetIntActivePath column in the <LSPs> table.
sam_getplan and SNMP tools are used together in the snapshot process for multivendor network collection, then Alcatel-Lucent traffic measurements cannot be aligned with those collected from other router platforms.
Web User Management
Both the System UI and the MATE Design Archive UI have user management capabilities. If both are used to configure users, MATE uses the most recently updated information. The recommendation is to use only the System UI to manage users.
Starting MATE Design in Linux
$CARIDEN_HOME directory is not automatically added to $PATH (only
$CARIDEN_HOME/bin is). If not in
$CARIDEN_HOME/bin, to start the MATE GUI from the command line, you must specify its full path:
WAE High Availability
The wae-ha-deploy script is not updated with the proper version, rendering the wae-core modules unable to start in a multiserver (HA) environment. The workaround is as follows:
1. Modify the
/wae-platsvcs/confmgmt/roles/wae-core/templates/org.apache.karaf.features.cfg.j2 file on the primary node by changing this line:
2. Run the wae-ha-deploy script.
License Check Failures on Newer Linux Distributions
Some newer Linux distributions have started using a new way (via
biosdevname) of naming hardware devices, including the network interfaces. This causes some software that depends on the traditional naming (for example,
eth1) to fail on license checks, including MATE.
The workaround is to append
biosdevname=0 to the kernel line of the grub configuration file and reboot. (Syntax varies among distributions.)
After reboot, you should be able use ifconfig to verify that the NIC are named
eth1,...) instead of the
biosdevname names (such as
Certain tools (such as
parse_configs, for example) may require more memory to start than what is available. The symptom is an error message similar to the following:
Error occurred during initialization of VM.
Could not reserve enough space for object heap.
Error: Could not create the Java Virtual Machine.
Error: A fatal exception has occurred. Program will exit.
The workaround is to set the maximum memory to a low enough value in the
CARIDEN_JAVA_OPTIONS variable before calling the tool. An example setting is as follows:

– statsComputingMinimumWindowLengthInSecs example needs a minor change. For convenience, the entire definition and example are given here:
statsComputingMinimumWindowLengthInSecs—Defines the minimum amount of time, in seconds, over which to generate averages of the polled traffic statistics. For example, if set to 300, to determine the rate of incoming packet errors, the Continuous Poller server takes the average of these incoming packet errors over the last 300 seconds. These traffic statistics are added to the plan file each time it is generated. The minimum value is 300 seconds.
