Hi, Les:

 

Is there any deployment of Multi-Instance to transfer the application info as recommend in https://tools.ietf.org/html/rfc6823#section-5?

>From my POV, the transfer of the application information needs not even be flooded to all of the device’s participated circuits, as that does for the normal routing LSP.  

Such information needs only be reached to the IGP nodes, then they can follows the shortest path calculated by the base routing instance(reach the flooding reduction effect).

Thus, why not considering using the existing routing instance? It can certainly decrease the overhead of neighbor configurations/maintenances for the new routing instance.

 

And, https://datatracker.ietf.org/doc/html/draft-bowers-lsr-isis-gen-info-clarifications-00 describes the necessary for the correlation of app info and other info that advertised in different routing instances.

If we put them into the basic routing instance, and make their flooding does not influence the core routing calculation function, won’t be it more attractive?

 

 

Best Regards

Subject: RE: [Lsr] New Version Notification for draft-wang-lsr-isis-mfi-00.txt

 

Sooo, I have been reluctant to comment on the shortcomings of this draft because I feel there was no need for the draft to be written in the first place.

I had hoped that the authors would think about this a bit more and realize the flaws in the proposed solution – or – as Acee suggested during the WG meeting – they would attempt an implementation and discover what had not yet been realized. This then would end the time the WG is spending on this – which IMO is the right outcome.

 

As that has not yet happened, perhaps some comments can speed this process along.

 

The goal of the draft is to support per-MFI LSDBs in the standard instance of IS-IS.  Since it is not possible for a legacy node to differentiate LSP.xx-yy w MFI #1 from the same LSP with MFI #2 (or with no MFI at all), it is clear that an MFI LSP cannot be flooded to a legacy node EVER!!

[Yali]: In our proposal, we considered the scenario where some routers that do not support MFI, and recommended that all MFIs share one LSP Number space in the standard instance of IS-IS protocol. And if routers that do not support MFI but receive the LSPs and SNPs carrying MFI-ID TLV, then routers SHOULD ignore the MFI-ID TLV and continues processing other TLVs. 

 

[Les:] Yes – I understand this. But, as I point out below, this case is already provided for by RFC 6823.  We do discourage doing this – as we discourage your proposed use of the standard instance. But it is already defined – so your draft adds no new functionality for this case.

 

In order to prevent this, a node has to know whether a given neighbor supports MFI or not. But since the draft defines no signaling in hellos, it cannot tell whether the neighbor supports MFI (not to mention which MFIs – which is important for avoiding flooding MFI LSPs to nodes that aren’t interested in that MFI) you are forced to rely on receiving LSPs (or SNPs) – which brings us to the chicken/egg problem. Neither I nor my neighbor can send an MFI LSP out of fear that the receiver does not support MFI. So MFI flooding is blocked.

 

This problem can be solved by including the MFI TLV in hellos (analogous to what MI(RFRC 8202) does). But this is not the end of your issues. If you have a LAN, you could have a mix of legacy routers and MFI routers – and again you cannot allow legacy routers to receive MFI LSPs as they will look just like legacy LSPs to the legacy nodes. This means you will have to find a way to avoid ever having MFI PDUs received by legacy nodes (RFC 8202 uses different MAC multicast addresses).

[Yali]: Correctly. You’re right. There indeed be a signaling in Hellos. MFI-ID TLV can be included in IS-IS Hellos. Because we want to focus on extensions to Update process, we originally plan to implement this part in the second version. 

We also have describe the Interoperability Considerations in the condition where some routers do not support MFI in the draft. 

 

[Les:] Glad you agree. But the point is – when you have finished your draft – you will simply end up with a variation of RFC 8202. So it won’t be simpler – which was one of your key goals.

This is one of many reasons why I see no need for your draft. 

 

Sooo, once you have addressed both of these issues you will have repeated what RFC 8202 already does. No new benefits here. 

 

This then leaves you with one possible use case: support a single LSDB for all MFIs in the standard IS-IS instance. But, this use case is already provided for (though strongly discouraged) by https://tools.ietf.org/html/rfc6823#section-5 .

[Yali]: This proposal is used to solve the issue that how we can isolate the impacts of non-routing information flooding under the condition that there is only the standard instance of IS-IS protocol implemented in the network and no one router support Multi-instance. Sec.5 also mentioned the issue as follows.

 
[Les:] If – as you seem to agree – you can only support a single LSDB, there is no need for any protocol extensions and no need for the new MFI TLV. You could advertise GENINFPO for multiple apps in the standard instance.
So your table below is irrelevant.
 
‘’ Flooding of information not directly related

   to the use of the IS-IS protocol in support of routing degrades the

   operation of the protocol.  Degradation occurs because the frequency

   of LSP updates is increased and because the processing of non-routing

   information in each router consumes resources whose primary

   responsibility is to efficiently respond to reachability changes in

   the network. ‘’

 

So in this proposed draft, we give an optional solution by separate multiple Update processes for different kinds of information, such as following example shown in the Table (I presented in the yesterday meeting). Each Level 1/Level 2 LSPs associated with a specific MFI carries flooding information, such as routing topology, belonging to the specific MFI #0. And Level 1/Level 2 PSNPs and Level 1/Level 2 CSNP containing information about LSPs that transmitted in a specific MFI#0 are generated to synchronize the information propagated in the MFI #0 LSDB that is subdivided from a single LSDB within the standard instance of protocol.

 



 

As shown in table, different flooding information can be propagated in the unique Update process. In each MFI, priority and update parameters can be customized in dependent on the requirements on the flooding rate of different information. Hence, in our proposal, we also provide an optional solution that can be used in the standard instance to solve the issue also mentioned in section 5 as follows.

‘’ One of the most egregious oversights is a

   failure to appropriately dampen changes in the information to be

   advertised; this can lead to flooding storms. “

 

I do understand that some folks want to advertise VTN info in IGPs and that the WG will be discussing this. I am not in favor of doing this – but I recognize it is a legitimate topic for discussion. And if the WG were to approve such functionality we have MI available to be used to provide separation.

(Note that MI has been implemented and successfully deployed by multiple vendors.)

[Yali]: Well, then may I post a question (or maybe a Survey) here for folks from operators? The question is that when deploying thousands of slices, are you willing to implement thousands of IS-IS instances to flood thousands of slices topologies and so on? From our side, we can't imagine what a huge project it is.

We’re appreciate if you are willing to give us your answer or opinion. 

 

[Les:] This is not an appropriate response. No one – not you, not me, nor anyone else on this thread – has suggested that thousands of IS-IS instances would be required. For you to suggest this  induces uncalled for hysteria.

It is obvious that if you could send info for multiple applications in the standard instance you can do so in a single non-standard instance – but we would at least have separation from the routing instance. Certainly there is no need for thousands of instances.

Please do not compromise a meaningful dialogue with this misdirection.

 

If you read https://www.rfc-editor.org/rfc/rfc8202.html#section-4 there is a discussion of related issues. Section 4.3 is particularly relevant to your comment.

 

   Les

 

draft-wang-lsr-isis-mfi is an unnecessary proposal, seriously flawed, and not achieving any of the goals stated in its introduction.

I ask that the authors abandon this proposal.

MT does not provide LSDB separation, only MI does.

thanks,

   I thought that each MT topology was a separate RIB meaning separate LSDB.  The RFC is confusing.😄

 

https://tools.ietf.org/html/rfc5120

 


 <https://tools.ietf.org/html/rfc5120#section-6> 6.  MT SPF Computation

 
 
   Each MT MUST run its own instance of the decision process.  The
   pseudo-node LSPs are used by all topologies during computation.  Each
   non-default topology MAY have its attached bit and overload bit set
   in the MT TLV.  A reverse-connectivity check within SPF MUST follow
   the according MT to assure the bi-directional reachability within the
   same MT.
 
   The results of each computation SHOULD be stored in a separate
   Routing Information Base (RIB), in normal cases, otherwise
   overlapping addresses in different topologies could lead to
   undesirable routing behavior, such as forwarding loops.  The
   forwarding logic and configuration need to ensure the same MT is
   traversed from the source to the destination for packets.  The
   nexthops derived from the MT SPF MUST belong to the adjacencies
 
conforming to the same MT for correct forwarding.  It is recommended
   for the administrators to ensure consistent configuration of all
   routers in the domain to prevent undesirable forwarding behavior.
 
   No attempt is made in this document to allow one topology to
   calculate routes using the routing information from another topology
   inside SPF.  Even though it is possible to redistribute and leak
   routes from another IS-IS topology or from external sources, the
   exact mechanism is beyond the scope of this document.
