Hi everybody,

 

I am trying to find BFD supported modes on JUNOS.  In Cisco, we have two modes : Control mode, echo mode.

Does JUNOS only support Control mode  control messages are exchanges as keep alive mehanism which is proessed by CPU?

 

Echo mode:  echo messages are exchanged at data plane so it is added as an opton in BFD standard later .

 

Thanks and have a nice weekend!!

 

It appears JUNOS only support Control mode :

Hi,

 

Juniper supports Centralized and Distributed BFD where centralized BFD refer to BFD that runs on the Routing Engine and  Distributed is PFE based.

 

Below command tells if BFD is centralized or Distributed:

 

OSPFv2
lab@mx240-3-re0> show ppm adjacencies detail
Protocol: OSPF2, Hold time: 40000, IFL-index: 359
Distributed: FALSE
OSPF source key: 88.1.1.2, OSPF area ID: 0.0.0.0
In the example above, the “Distributed” flag is false. Hence, OSPF is running on RE PPMD

BFD
lab@mx240-3-re0# run show ppm adjacencies detail
Protocol: BFD, Hold time: 900, IFL-index: 359
Distributed: TRUE
BFD discriminator: 16, BFD routing table index: 0
Here, the “Distributed” flag is TRUE. Hence BFD is distributed to PFE

 

 

 

Please refer the below documents for more details:
