ASR9k CGNAT ISM scalability and performance design
I need some performance and scalability numbers and limitations of ASR9k ISM card for NAT44. Documentation says "at least 10 Gbps full-duplex bandwidth throughput". Some other presentation are mentioning 15 Gbps but I think this is probably pps limitation and not bandwidth.
So my question is:
How many pps can one ISM card handle, I found somewhere around 1.5Mpps is this correct.
Is this limitation separate for inbound and outbound connection or this is cumulative value.
I read somewhere if we want to use full potential of ISM card that 2 pair of ServiceApp must be used. Is the limitation under section 1. referring to the one ServiceApp pair or two pairs. How many pps should each ServiceApp pair handle?
How will we know when ISM can't handle any more traffic? Will "Inside to outside drops system limit reached" and "Inside to outside drops resource depletion" counters start to increase?
In scaled EVPN deployments it can be wise to name ESI that way to represent the site/physical port/etc it is attached to. Thus on some remote location you can easily verify where particular route/MAC is coming from. Similar to phone numbers, where...
Want to enable Feature EPFT with “routing-protocols-enable”. However ,it is throwing an error and ask to configure the following command: “non-subscriber-interfaces mac” which once enabled drops the traffic without any penalty.

look for any process crash, review time stamp[if it is too old, then no immediate action needed]
verify if standby state is Ready and NSR-Ready

It's been a long standing ask for XR to support conditional route advertisements in BGP.
The expected option of using the
option in RPL currently can only be used at the default-inf...
On IOS-XR, Quality of Service has an extension to WRED (Weighted Random Early Detection) called Explicit Congestion Notification (ECN). ECN will mark packets instead of dropping them when the average queue length exceeds a specific threshold value. When c...
