Arista Fabric Integration with Microsoft Network Load Balancing

Overview This article provides a brief introduction and configuration of Microsoft NLB with Arista L2LS (without VxLAN) and L3LS VxLAN fabric setup to avoid the most common issues during the deployments. NLB Introduction The Network Load Balancing (NLB) feature distributes traffic across several servers by using the TCP/IP networking protocol. By combining two or more computers that are running applications into a single virtual cluster, NLB provides reliability and performance for web servers and other mission-critical servers. Three modes of operation in NLB Unicast All the NICs assigned to a Microsoft NLB cluster share a common MAC address. The MAC...

VxLAN VTEP counters on 7020R, 7280R, 7280R2, 7280R3, 7500R, 7500R2, and 7500R3 series

Description The VxLAN VTEP counters feature allows the device to count VxLAN packets received and sent by the device on a per VTEP basis. Specifically, it enables the device to count bytes and packets that are encapsulated and decapsulated as they are passing through. The counters are logically split up in the two VxLAN directions: “encap” counters count packets coming from the edge, encapsulated on the device and directed to the core “decap” counters count packets coming from the core, decapsulated on the device and heading towards the edge. To be able to count VxLAN packets the device has to...

Multiple VXLAN to interface

Hello, I’m testing vEOS with basic flood-and-learn VXLAN topology. Is it possible to assign multiple VXLAN to a single interface? i.e. int Et1: untagged frames are mapped to VNI xxxx tagged frames (vlan 123) are mapped to VNI yyyy tagged frames (vlan 456) are mapped to VNI zzzz     so that on the linux end host, the configuration will be something like: eth0: public_ip/32 gw: virtual_gw Vlan.123: private_subnet Vlan.456: private_subnet

Head-End-Replicated DHCP Packets Suppression in VXLAN Network

Description In VXLAN networks, broadcast DHCP requests are head-end-replicated to all VXLAN tunnel endpoints (VTEP). If a DHCP relay helper address is configured on more than one VTEP, each such VTEP relays the DHCP request to the configured DHCP server. This could potentially overwhelm the DHCP server as it would receive multiple copies of broadcast packets originated from a host connected to one of the VTEPs. In Figure 1, a DHCP request from DHCP Client1 is head-end-replicated to all VTEPs. DHCP Relay on VTEPs B and C will also forward this request to the DHCP server, resulting in three copies...

EVPN L3 Gateway

Description This feature adds control plane support for inter-subnet forwarding between EVPN networks. This support is achieved by advertising received EVPN IP Prefix routes (Type-5) with next-hop self. VXLAN and MPLS encapsulation are supported, and the encapsulation type used for advertised routes is dependent on the encapsulation type configured for EVPN peering. The following diagram shows an example topology where an EVPN VXLAN network exchanges Type-5 routes with an EVPN MPLS network.   Within the EVPN VXLAN and EVPN MPLS network, EVPN routes are exchanged as normal. The L3 gateway functionality is achieved by GW1/2 and GW3/4 advertising received type-5...

EVPN VXLAN single-gateway centralized routing

Description In a traditional EVPN VXLAN centralized anycast gateway deployment, multiple L3 VTEPs serve the role of the centralized anycast gateway.  In order for hosts to have a consistent ARP binding for any of the individual centralized gateway VTEPs, each VTEP operating as a centralized gateway is configured with a virtual router MAC (VARP MAC), and a virtual VTEP IP (VARP VTEP IP), that is shared between all of the L3 VTEPs operating as centralized gateways.  Each centralized gateway VTEP also advertises an EVPN type-3 route for both its primary VTEP IP and VARP VTEP IP, so both IPs end...

It is can used mss features, configuration or not?   Please advise and share your experience and link recommended.     Thanks   Robma bayu    

EVPN VXLAN Support for Wireless APs

Description Typical WiFi networks utilize a single, central Wireless LAN Controller (WLC) to act as a gateway between the wireless APs and the wired network. Arista differentiates itself by allowing the wireless network to utilize a distributed set of aggregation switches to connect APs to the wired network. This feature allows a decentralized and distributed set of aggregation switches to bridge wireless traffic on behalf of the set of APs configured to VXLAN tunnel all traffic to those aggregation switches, or their “local” APs. This is an extension of the VXLAN VTEP to VTEP bridging feature (https://eos.arista.com/eos-4-22-1f/vxlan-vtep-to-vtep-bridging/) which supports only...

EVPN Control Plane Support for MSS

Description This feature enables support for Macro Segmentation Service (MSS) to insert security devices into the traffic path for VXLAN networks using an EVPN control plane. With this feature enabled, CVX will continue to monitor the network via NetDB state and will initiate intercept and offload rules. With this feature enabled, MAC and IP reachability information will be learned and distributed in user configured L2 domains via EVPN.   There are two options for pairing MSS and EVPN: Option 1: MSS + EVPN asymmetric IRB Option 2: MSS + EVPN symmetric IRB with VXLAN bridging to firewall (see https://eos.arista.com/eos-4-20-1f/evpn-irb-with-vxlan-underlay/ for...

IPv6 Underlay Support for VXLAN With EVPN Control Plane

Description Several customers have expressed interest in using IPv6 addresses for VXLAN underlay in their Data Centers (DC). Prior to 4.24.1F, EOS only supported IPv4 addresses for VXLAN underlay, i.e., VTEPs were reachable via IPv4 addresses only. This feature enables a VTEP to send VXLAN Encapsulated packets using IPv6 underlay. The following list describes the capabilities of this feature. The feature is designed for a Greenfield deployment environment, i.e., an environment where all VTEPs communicate using IPv6 underlay only. In such deployments, the VTEPs must be configured with an IPv6 address on the VXLAN source interface. And all VTEP-VTEP VXLAN...

Scalable VXLAN/EVPN-MS

G’day, I am looking for some guidance as well as real life experience, gotchas, etc (if someone has done something similar it will be great to hear some thoughts). I am working on a design of 50+ DCs, meaning I’ll have 50+ fabrics across the globe. The requirement is to support multi-tenancy across all the sites and the only “relief” here is I only need to support layer3! That being said, I am considering multi-site, multi-pod architecture running route-servers within and between all sites. My current idea is to have three major sites (regions) – US, EMEA & APAC. In...

EVPN Transit Route VRF Leaking

Description As described in the L3 EVPN VXLAN Configuration Guide, it is common practice to use Layer 3 EVPN to provide multi-tenancy within a datacenter. This is achieved by keeping each tenant’s prefixes in separate VRFs.   In order to allow hosts from different VRFs to communicate with each other, a new mechanism lets the Spine act as a VTEP to which cross-VRF traffic will be directed for leaking.   The Spine will: Import specific learned IP or IPv6 prefixes belonging to one VRF into another Advertise these leaked routes to relevant EVPN neighbors (Leafs) with itself as next-hop. Furthermore,...
