Port Overloading factor with overflow

‎02-28-2016 01:48 AM

Hi Team,

 

I have this specific requirement where I did configure 1 ip address in my source pool to PAT-NAT.

I did configure port-overloading-factor = 4 configuration to have bigger port space for my source traffic.

 

Now as per the traffic pattern I see one of the 4 buckets for single ports gets 100% utilized.

This results into any extra traffic being dropped.

 

From the configuration point of view, I do not see any overflow config option with port-overloading-factor?

 

Is there any option to configure an overflow bucket if my port overloading factor bucket gets 100% utilized?

 

Regards,

 

Rahul

As per https://kb.juniper.net/InfoCenter/index?page=content&id=KB27810&actp=search there is no overflow mechanism.

Hi Suraj,

 

Thanks for the reply.

But I went through the Kb earlier, this talks about the procedure followed to allocate a bucket defined using POF command.

That is understood, but what to do if the bucket gets overflowed depended upon the traffic pattern.

 

Well, this seems to be a limitation a sper my latest understanding.
