I think what you want to ask is for LDP signalled VPLS
#1 command: This will create targeted LDP session (with assumption that underlay ldp neighbors are all established)
#2 commadn: Your understanding is correct.
"show vpls connection" is the best way to check vpls related status. To find out whether it is using BGP or LDP as signaling protocol, I would say you need to check from configuration perspective. To check the inner label, you can also use "show route forwarding-table family vpls", you should see "push push(Top)" option
Thank you for your time and answer which was very useful.
The main problem here was that I mixed up the concept of PW and LSP.
After reading tons of documentation i reached this conclution:
- LSP are the tunnel for transport
- PW are instead tunnel for the service (vpls in my case) which run above the mpls network.
Next: to understand which protocol is used for build the LSP is enough to run the command
show mpls lsp extensive
This allow to see for example messages like "Received RRO", "Computed ERO" and without doubt this indicate the use of RSVP protocol to create the tunnel. Confirmation arrive also form the configuration (set protocols rsvp interface xx)
Next: to understand which protocol is used for build the PW is enough to run show ldp session, besides a check at configuration level (e.g. check if lsp are statictally defined as suggested by you above).
Next: to check the service lable is enough the command show vpls connections
Next: to check the tranpsort label show route table mpls.0 protocol rsvp
Next: to check and see the operation involing inner and outer lable is enough the command "show route forwarding-table family vpls".
Does it make sense?
Thanks for your reply. Most of your understanding is correct. Thanks to tons of reading.
Only thing I'd like to high light here, you will not only have rsvp lsp as mpls transport (out label).
Another widely used label distribution protocol is ldp. You can use "show ldp neighbor/session/database" to get ldp related information. It assigns label just like RSVP LSPs.
