Question Of The Day: 11 April, 2008

Topic: IP Routing

Refer to the network diagram below (click for larger version).

Question of The Day Network Diagram

The network engineer wants to load balance traffic from r1 to r4’s user network ( He has altered the Administrative Distance of the RIP routes on r1 to 90 so that they match the Administrative Distance of the EIGRP routes.

r1#sh ip route | e 100.
Codes: C – connected, S – static, R – RIP, M – mobile, B – BGP
D – EIGRP, EX – EIGRP external, O – OSPF, IA – OSPF inter area
N1 – OSPF NSSA external type 1, N2 – OSPF NSSA external type 2
E1 – OSPF external type 1, E2 – OSPF external type 2
i – IS-IS, su – IS-IS summary, L1 – IS-IS level-1, L2 – IS-IS level-2
ia – IS-IS inter area, * – candidate default, U – per-user static route
o – ODR, P – periodic downloaded static route

Gateway of last resort is not set is subnetted, 4 subnets
C is directly connected, FastEthernet1/0
C is directly connected, FastEthernet0/0
D [90/30720] via, 06:48:57, FastEthernet0/0
R [90/1] via, 00:00:16, FastEthernet1/0

r1#sh run | sec router

*The user network is being emulated by lo0 on r4.  It is being advertised by both EIGRP and RIP.

Will packets from r1 to be load-balanced between r2 and r3? Why?

Yesterday’s Question

Question Of The Day: 10 April, 2008

Topic: Frame Relay Traffic Shaping

The network engineer in charge of r1 recently configured Frame Relay Traffic Shaping. The remote sites have complained that they are still getting too much traffic ingress on their Frame Relay connections to r1. You agree to look at his configuration:

map-class frame-relay FRTS
frame-relay cir 256000
frame-relay be 12880
frame-relay mincir 128000
frame-relay adaptive-shaping becn
interface Serial1/0
ip address
encapsulation frame-relay
frame-relay class FRTS
frame-relay map ip 102 broadcast
frame-relay map ip 103 broadcast
no frame-relay inverse-arp

r1#sh frame map
Serial1/0 (up): ip dlci 102(0x66,0x1860), static,
CISCO, status defined, active
Serial1/0 (up): ip dlci 103(0x67,0x1870), static,
CISCO, status defined, active

What is the problem with this configuration?

Answer: You need to configure ‘frame-relay traffic-shaping’ under interface s1/0

The configuration above is correct expect that Frame Relay Traffic Shaping is not enabled on an interface until you configure ‘frame-relay traffic-shaping’

r1#sh traffic-shape s1/0
Traffic shaping not configured on Serial1/0

r1(config)#int s1/0
r1(config-if)#frame-relay traffic-shaping
r1(config-if)#do sh traffic-shape s1/0

Interface Se1/0
Access Target Byte Sustain Excess Interval Increment Adapt
VC List Rate Limit bits/int bits/int (ms) (bytes) Active
103 256000 5610 256000 12880 125 4000 BECN
102 256000 5610 256000 12880 125 4000 BECN
