anyone could shred a light?

Hello Mike,

this is normal the best path is not used as soon as it is up again, but when the next optimization time is triggered.


you should use show mpls traffic-eng tunnels brief

to see this.

You can also do a "mpls traffic-eng reoptimize" If you want to force reoptimization to take place right away instead of waiting for the reoptimization timer to expire.

Hi Ritter,


By any chance, is it possible to schedule re-optimize at random intervals ?

It will happen after the re-optimize timer times out, which one hour (3600 seconds) by default.

could you not also solve your problem by using


mpls traffic-eng reoptimize events link-up


??

This would certainly work. It boils down to how quickly you want your path to be reoptimized vs. network stability.

Hi Mike,

Instead of dynamic path option, configure an explicit path with "192.168.3.1" as strict hop and try the scenario.


In this case, when pos interface on primary path goes down the traffic will be rerouted via backup tunnel and the primary path will be retried for every 30 seconds. When the interface is back up, primary path signaling will succeed and tunnel will no longer use the backup path.


When tunnel uses the backup tunnel, "show mpls traffic-eng fast database" will display it's status as "active".


With dynamic path option, the tunnel will calculate a path which will be same as the backup tunnel path and it'll look like it's using the backup tunnel. To use the best path you've to trigger reoptimization (manual/periodic/event-linkUp).


Thanks,

Vijay
