LFIB question

Hi Guys,

Had a couple of questions, when I run the command sh mpls-forwarding table vrf <id> I see a local label assigned to the vrf id what does that signify; what's even more confusing is if the interface is in a down down state then the mpls forwarding table associated with that interface should be empty, but I still see alabel assigned to the VRF id; confused:

ROUTER1#sh mpls forwarding-table vrf Orch_8220:1251674

Local Outgoing Prefix Bytes tag Outgoing Next Hop

tag tag or VC or Tunnel Id switched interface

162 Aggregate vrf:Orch_8330:121674 \

0

ROUTER1#

The VRF related to this interface is in a down down state.

Re: LFIB question

Local Label is a local tag assigned by the router. Refer to URL http://www.cisco.com/en/US/docs/ios/12_0st/12_0st10/feature/guide/egress.html#wp1031412 for detailed explanation of this command.

Re: LFIB question

Yeps, I know local labels are assigned by the LSR to all the prefixes in the routing table. My question is why was a label assigned to VRF ID (which is not a routing prefix) also if the interface is down, there is no prefix in the vrf routing table for that particular VRF ID still a local label is assigned to it. Why????

Re: LFIB question

Hi,

It would be nice to see the output of "show ip route vrf ..." at the same time as your "show mpls forwarding-table". Which IOS version and platform are you using?

Regards, Martin
