OSPF load-sharing is not working

hsien-ping tang

Dear Experts,

 

I have a question about load-sharing in OSPF 。

There are two equal-cost routes in the routing tale, in my idea, the forwarding behavior should be load-sharing. however, the traffic is forwarding on one uplink.

 

Below is "show" info:

I would like to ask experts that

 

1. what does "platform-non_preferred" mean in show cef?

2. and how come it will be appeared?

3. Is this symptom caused by configuring IP FRR?

 

Thank you,

 

Tom

In cluster we always prefer interfaces on the local rack. That's what platform-non_preferred is used for. Are members of Bundle-Ether2601 and Bundle-Ether2602 distributed across both racks?

Try configuring 'maximum-paths' under OSPF. That should enable ECMP.

Hi Aleksander

Isnt it enabled by default?

actually, yes. :) Are you taking these commands from a cluster by any chance? Which platform is this?

Hi

 

I am using ASR9010(nVEdge Cluster) with IOSXR 5.3.3.

Because this Router has service traffic on it, I don,t have the authorization to change config. except show command.

 

thank you

If it prefers interfaces on the local rack in cluster, in our design, it should even be load-sharing, isn't it?

No, that's the point of preferring local interfaces. We don't want to load-balance if that includes sending packets over IRL.

Is there any way to load-balance including the IRL?

Do you mean load-share when traffic has to traverse the IRLs from one rack to the other in cluster?

This is handled automatically, and all IRLs are treated like they are in 1 bundle, so we use bundle hashing to achieve load balancing. You cannot put the IRLs in a bundle themselves though.
