Hardware Accelerated BFD Transmit

Description This feature adds support for offloading BFD Transmit path to hardware (ASIC) for specific types of BFD sessions. This will improve accuracy of transmit timer implementations for BFD (especially with fast timers like 50 ms) and relieve pressure on the main CPU in scenarios of scale.   On supported platforms, hardware acceleration-capable BFD sessions will be offloaded by default. Memory resources are required on ASIC to offload sessions (one unit per discriminator). Currently, the number of session discriminators that can be offloaded is restricted to 200 per ASIC.   Only single-hop BFD sessions on front panel ports are capable...

This will improve accuracy of transmit timer implementations for BFD (especially with fast timers like 50 ms) and relieve pressure on the main CPU in scenarios of scale. Note that RX packet processing for all BFD sessions is still handled by the Bfd agent on the main CPU. The feature does not add any additional timer interval or multiplier configurations. On supported platforms, hardware acceleration-capable BFD sessions will be offloaded by default. Memory resources are required on ASIC to offload sessions...

Health Tracker

Introduction Network operators have to monitor all kinds of information on the health of their networking equipment like monitoring failures of fan modules and power supplies, hardware table capacity, cpu usage, etc. As features get added to network equipment the amount of monitoring that needs to be done increases significantly. This feature helps network operators query the health of the system in a single location by providing a layered view of all bad events currently occurring in the system. The set of things to be monitored would continuously be updated over releases and time.The feature uses the ‘event-handler’ infrastructure to...
