Information About ECMP Recovery
The RIB adds ECMP routes to the FIB. When the hardware ECMP table becomes full, a single adjacency is created for all the subsequent ECMP routes. Until Cisco NX-OS Release 6.0(2)U2(2), when some entries in the ECMP table became free, these partially installed routes were not revisited to enable all paths.
Cisco NX-OS Release 6.0(2)U3(1) introduces the ECMP Recovery feature, which enables the FIB to automatically recover and reinstall partially installed ECMP routes when resources in the ECMP table become available. A threshold value can be configured for ECMP table resources to ensure that ECMP recovery is performed only when the configured percentage of ECMP table becomes free.
