LDP looping protection

Hi,

 

We have LDP looping in network. Can somebody help me to understand how Juniper implemented LDP looping prevention and detection of MX Routers? What configuration I need?

 

Thanks,

 

Judy

Hi

 

  What i know is that LDP itself does not have a loop prevention mechanism, it sets up a LSP based on IGP shortest path, so it depends on IGP to provide loop prevention mechanism.

 

Hope that will help you.

 

 

ThankS!

Thanks for your replay!

 

I have enabled LFA(IP FRR) in our network.  That is why we have two best routes but LDP and IGP have different routes.

 

I expected IGP route is selected instead of LDP route. 

 

x.x.x.x./32    *[LDP/9] 00:29:38, metric 681

                    > to x.x.x.101 via ae2.0, Push 700000 ------------->Do not know why LDP pick up ae2. 0

                    [OSPF/10] 18:41:04, metric 681

                    > to x.x.x.121 via ae1.0 --------------------> this one should be selected

                      to x.x.x.101 via ae2.0

You are right that LDP has high preference. In our case, LFA is enabled. If LDP and OSPF does not sync correctly, it casues a loop. That is what is happening here. Any clue?

Hi,

 

Have you configure LDP synchronization ?

 

user@host# show protocols ospf 
area 0.0.0.0 {
            interface so-1/0/3.0 {
                ldp-synchronization {
                      hold-time 10;
                }
            } 
}
