Hi Adrian,

Hello Paweł,

 

OK draft-zhang-ccamp-gmpls-uni-app-05 Figure 1

 

Firstly, establishing a pair of mutually diverse paths by first setting up one and then trying to set up the other is at best a poor substitute for selecting two good paths.

I agree with the assertion that you may find a pair of diverse LSPs if you request them together as opposed to
requesting them sequentially. It is, however a matter of the network topology and network state (utilization)
that determines the likelihood that you may not find a pair of diverse paths if you request them sequentially.


Afaik, it is currently not possible to request a pair of diverse LSPs with two different ingress and egress nodes
based on the RSVP UNI signalling RFCs/drafts. The network would have to correlate somehow the two requests
for the 2 LSPs. Therefore, we are currently proposing a solution to the problem that is feasible with some minor
protocol extensions for the sequential case.


Thanks,
Dieter

 

But, let's assume you want to do it for some reason.

 

EN1 sets up an LSP EN1-CN1-CN2-CN3-EN3

EN2 wants an LSP to EN4 that is completely disjoint from the first LSP.

 

Of course, there has to be some (magic) exchange of information from EN1 to EN2, but let's also assume that this happens (although I believe the reason for doing it is suspect!)

 

Suppose EN1 reports the path as {EN1, CN1, keyX, EN3}

Suppose also that EN2 has no access to a PCE.

EN2 does the computation it can which is to choose CN1 or CN4. It will not choose CN1 as that is in the path it is trying to avoid.

So EN2 signals {EN2, CN4, looseEN4} with  Not keyX

The Path message reaches CN4 and it looks for the next hop. It's loose so a path computation is needed.

CN4 sees the Not keyX and contacts the PCE for the core (or CN1) to expand the key.

The expansion shows {CN2, CN3}

So CN4 can now compute the path CN4-CN5-EN4 and signal as necessary.

 

[note: computations can be offloaded as desired]

 

Thus, yes, "avoid all links from EN2 to CN1". But I prefer "avoid all nodes CN1" because that is really what you are doing.

Adrian,

 

If EN1 can ask PCE – I agree, there is no need for crankback. Do you think that using pathkey as exclusion when there is no PCEP/TE visibility on the UNI boundary is worth considering? If so, could you walk me through such a case? Let’s take figure 1 from the document as an example.

 

1.       EN1 sets up a service A to EN3 via CN1.

2.       EN2 wants to set up a service B to EN4, which is both node and link-disjoint from path of service A. It will use pathkey exclusion for this purpose.

 

If I understand Path key is used in conjunction with the identity of the domain entry point, not in isolation” statement correctly, in order to avoid choosing wrong path for service B, EN2 should add TWO exclusions:
CN1 (or all links from EN2 to CN1) AND pathkey from service A. Is this correct?

 

Thanks,

Pawel

Rajan,

 

[co-author of draft-zhang-ccamp-gmpls-uni-app wakes from his slumber]

 

Of course crankback can be used, but I fail to see the topology where the path key doesn't do the job.

 

You referenced Figure 2 as an example. Unfortunately, you then used "CE" and "PE" in your question. Yet those terms are not used in the figure so we are left guessing what you mean.

 

It is possible that there is a slight confusion. Path key is used in conjunction with the identity of the domain entry point, not in isolation. Furthermore, it is used in conjunction with two points of reference to the PCE.

 

Let's look again at that figure

Let's suppose that EN1 (which is dual homed) asks the PCE for a path.

Let's also assume that core path hiding is being used.

Furthermore, the single PCE can see the ENs and the core network.

The PCRsp includes an ERO that is {EN1, CN4, pathkey, EN2}

This gives EN1 everything it needs to know.

When the signaling message reaches CN4, it must expand the pathkey.

Thus CN4 must contact the PCE for help and gets in return the path {CN4, CN5, CN2, CN3, EN2}

 

It may help if you re-read some RFCs: 5520, 5553, 5623, 6805.

 

If, at the end of this, you feel that the use of the path key is not clear, this is something you could work with us to add to draft-ietf-pce-questions

 

Cheers,

Adrian

My understanding is that a “Cookie” is a network-Id/path-id.  It won’t give info CE is looking for.   What I understood from side discussions is that Crankback will be used to convey info back to CE!!

Hi Rajan,

 

I would say “by cookie” if I understand your question correctly.

 

 

Thanks

Changed the title to Overlay topic.

 

Dieter,  Fatai

 

One more question:

 

In case of PCE,  I assume CE is the one talking to PCE (fig-2 in uni-app draft).  

In cases where CE reachability is not known & PE1 is the one talking to PCE (say CE makes a request to PE1 first),  how do you communicate PE2 info back to CE? 

 

Thx

Rajan

Hi Rajan,

 

I think your question is a general question, and should be out of scope of “LSP diversity” topic,

 

However, there are lots of approaches for CE to know why “PE1” should be picked up besides the way mentioned by Dieter below, e.g, qualified TE information (besides reachability) known by CE, manual configuration, or PCE can help as described in http://tools.ietf.org/id/draft-zhang-ccamp-gmpls-uni-app-05.txt" rel="nofollow">draft-zhang-ccamp-gmpls-uni-app.

 

 

Thanks

 

Fatai

My question on your uses cases was the following:

How does CE know which PE to talk to for the first LSP setup?  What is the assumption?

assuming that the CE does not have any information other than the destination CE is reachable via
both PEs , it will just pick one arbitrarily.


Thanks,
Dieter
