Per Port Tc-To-Cos

Description This feature enables per port TC-To-COS mapping. TC represents Traffic-Class and COS represents Vlan tag PCP bits. While at present there is a global TC-To-COS mapping, in this feature named TC-To-COS profiles can be created which can be applied to the required interfaces. When a Tc-To-Cos profile is applied to an interface then all the packet egressing through this interface will follow the below principles: Cos remarking will happen based on the TC, Dp( Drop precedence ) of the packet. The exact value of the cos will depend on the mapping present in the tc-to-cos profile applied to it....

Clear/Set COS for CPU Generated Traffic

Description The CPU CoS mapping feature can only be configured on physical routed interfaces. No other interface types including LAGs, SVIs, sub-interfaces or Tunnel interfaces are supported at this time. When a CPU TC to CoS Map is applied on an interface All outgoing VLAN tagged CPU traffic on that parent interface (including all sub-interfaces) is subjected to the mapping function. This means that the CoS field of the outermost VLAN tag will be computed based on the mapping function. In the case of QinQ sub-interfaces, the inner tag will not be affected at all. Platform compatibility DCS-7020 DCS-7280 series...

Configuration Lock

Description This mechanism allows a session to lock the configuration of the switch to prevent any other session from altering the configuration. The configuration lock is intended to be short-lived and allows a client to make a change without fear of interaction with other clients, eAPI, OpenConfig, CLI scripts, human users, etc. In order to acquire the configuration lock, a privileged user must use configure lock [ REASON ] command. Care must be taken, because if this CLI session cannot acquire the lock then an error will be issued, and the client must handle this error correctly. When the configuration...

Route Map Debugging CLI 

Description This document describes a new CLI command to help debug how and why route maps permit and deny paths. The aim of this CLI command is for the user to debug a route map by specifying as input a prefix for which BGP has reachability for, either via a BGP peer or a redistribe source. The path information for this prefix is then used in the evaluation of a route map. The route map can be specified by the user, but if none is specified the route map applied to the peer is used. Any route map configured can...

Low-memory mode

Description This feature improves the switch behavior and predictability when it runs out of memory (OOM). Common contributing factors resulting in OOM include (typically a combination of these factors): Memory leaks in EOS or customer user processes. Process leaks.  Bugs in EOS or customer scripts which lead to too many of a particular process running at one time. Over-configuration.  The user has simply specified a configuration that uses more memory than the system in question has available. Full consumption of tmpfs filesystems (e.g. /var/log). User initiating more CLI sessions than the system can sustain Customer programs or scripts using more...

Maximum Latency Tail Drop Thresholds

Description The feature adjusts VOQs tail drop thresholds based on the TX queue maximum latency configuration and interface or queue shape rate. This helps customers to avoid manually calculate and configure tail drop thresholds to achieve desired maximum latency. Platform compatibility DCS-7280QR DCS-7280CR DCS-7280SR DCS-7504 DCS-7508 DCS-7512 DCS-7516 Configuration The configuration is done on the interface’s TX queue mode or in QOS profile and applied on required interfaces. The maximum latency is specified in milliseconds or microseconds with maximum threshold of 50 milliseconds.

Show route-map enhancements

Description This feature adds two new show commands to better display route-map information. The first show command displays route-maps and their sub-route-maps in a hierarchical fashion. That is, the sub-route-maps will be rendered fully inside the definition of a route-map. This makes it easier to check the full contents of a route-map in a single command. The second command is used for displaying what, if anything, is undefined in the route-maps in the config. This can be used for detecting an undefined element in a match or set clause as well as an undefined sub-route-map or trying to continue to...

Forwarding Destination Prediction

Description Forwarding destination prediction enables visibility into how a packet is forwarded through the switch, allowing you to determine which interfaces a packet would egress out of. Typical use cases include but are not limited to determining egress members for Port-Channels and ECMPs. Platform Compatibility DCS-7020 (with the exception of DCS-7020SRG-24C2) DCS-7280/R/R2 series DCS-7500/R/R2 series Interactive Mode The forwarding destination CLI command allows you to specify the various headers and fields of the packet, necessary in predicting the forwarding destination. An important note is that the CLI command persists the configured packet per session. There are two methods of interacting...

LLDP IPv6 Management Address

Description Add support for IPv6 management address in LLDP. An LLDP packet requires a management address, that is typically one of the local system IP addresses and it is seen by LLDP neighbors. Configuration A new cli command was implemented to add the support for LLDP IPv6 management address by pointing to the management interface: [no|default] lldp management-address ipv6 <interface> The IPv6 address selected is going to be the first address, in numerical order, configured on the <interface> which is passed as a parameter to the command. The configuration of an IPv6 management address does not replace an existing IPv4...

Tap Aggregation and Mirror to GRE Timestamping in UTC Time Scale

Description Previously, Tap Aggregation and Mirror to GRE timestamping only supported timestamping packets in International Atomic Time ( TAI ). This release introduces a new feature on the Sand platform to allow for timestamping packets in UTC. UTC only differs from TAI by being behind by 37 leap seconds than TAI. Additional leap seconds will then be added or subtracted by the International Earth Rotation and Reference Systems Service ( IERS ) when needed. Generally, the PTP grandmaster propagates the leap second information downstream to all its slaves. For the Arista switch to know the number of leap seconds, this...

Optimized IPv4 route scale with 2-to-1 compression

Description IPv4 routes of certain prefix lengths can be optimized for enhanced route scale on 7500R, 7280R, 7500R2 and 7280R2 platforms using this feature. This feature is ideally suited to achieve route scale when route distribution has a large number of routes of one or two prefix lengths. EOS 4.21.3F offers the 2-to-1 compression of routes as an enhancement.  Platform compatibility DCS-7500R series DCS-7280R series DCS-7500R2 series DCS-7280R2 series Configuration The TOI of the previous revision of this feature is available at IPv4 route scale TOI of 4.15.0F release. Starting from 4.21.3F release, the following configuration command can be used...
