NX-OSv problems with basic BFD

Hi all!

 

I am testing N9k in virtual environment:

NX-OSv9K is a demo version of the Nexus Operating System

Software
  BIOS: version 
  NXOS: version 7.0(3)I5(2)
  BIOS compile time:  
  NXOS image file is: bootflash:///nxos.7.0.3.I5.2.bin
  NXOS compile time:  2/16/2017 8:00:00 [02/16/2017 17:03:27]


Hardware
  cisco NX-OSv Chassis 
   with 8160556 kB of memory.
  Processor Board ID 9DOV2BAZYKE

  Device name: NX2
  bootflash:    3509454 kB
Kernel uptime is 0 day(s), 5 hour(s), 18 minute(s), 9 second(s)

And try to establish BFD session:

interface Vlan99
  bfd interval 500 min_rx 500 multiplier 3
  no bfd echo
  bfd authentication Keyed-SHA1 key-id 1 hex-key 123
  bfd ipv4 interval 500 min_rx 500 multiplier 3
  ip ospf bfd
router ospf 1
  bfd

But session does not come up due to lack of resources:

NX2# sh bfd neighbors det

OurAddr         NeighAddr       LD/RD                 RH/RS           Holdown(mu
lt)     State       Int                   Vrf

        Down        Vlan99                default

Please help, I do not want to test this on production network.

Re: NX-OSv problems with basic BFD

Hi - I have this exact problem running in EVE Lab.

 

At first I thought it was a TCAM resource issue with the virtual NXOS image so I re-adjusted the TCAM: taking resouces away from SPAN and aligning the 256 with what I thought BFD would be: - this didn't work.

 

hardware access-list tcam region SPAN 0

hardware access-list tcam region bfd-multihop 256

 

Also turned off ip redirects on the L3 interface running bfd - this does nothing either.

 

What I did notice after carving the TCAM was that the bfd session was no longer admin down - just down - but I suspect its just a limitation with the virtual switch image not supporting bfd echo in virtual hardware.

 

If you hear of a solution let me know...

Hi Remi

 

Thanks for confirming, suspected it might be so...
