OSPF Fluctuations every 32 Minutes in CSC Environment

Unanswered Question
May 18th, 2009

Hello Experts,

We experience the OSPF Fluctiations every 32 Minutes i.e. configured between PE & 'CSC' Router.

Note: It's a CSC Setup.

Few points are:

----------------

1) Last Mile is Healthy

2) OSPF Configuration are Fine

3) No MTU Related issues.

Can someone help in identifying the exact cause for the same.

Best Regards,

Guru Prasad R

Hello Guru,

each OSPF LSA is refreshed by the original owner every 30 minutes on average, (LSA group pacing waits to collect a group of LSAs to refresh).

A new version of LSAs trigger a SPF recalculation and this might explain what you see.

Hope to help

Hello Guru,

I would suggest you to better define the problem:

what do you mean with OSPF fluctuations?

I may guess you can experience temporary loss of MPLS connectivity but it is a wild guess.

In this case you can try to play with LDP synchronization

on in the field of MPLS LDP graceful restart
