How do I set lag in Juniper?
To configure LAG:
- Configure the number of aggregated Ethernet interfaces with LAG interface that you need to create.
- Add a port to the aggregated Ethernet interface with LAG.
- Configure LACP for the aggregated Ethernet interface with LAG.
- Configure family Ethernet switching for the aggregated Ethernet interface with LAG.
What is MC-LAG in Juniper?
Multichassis link aggregation groups (MC-LAGs) enable a client device to form a logical LAG interface between two MC-LAG peers. The MC-LAG peers use the Inter-Chassis Control Protocol (ICCP) to exchange control information and coordinate with each other to ensure that data traffic is forwarded properly.
How does MC-LAG work?
MLAG takes the benefits of link aggregation and spreads them across a pair of data center switches to deliver system level redundancy as well network level resiliency. Arista’s MLAG feature allows you to scale at Layer 2 without wasting bandwidth in Spanning Tree Blocked mode.
What is MC-LAG ICL?
A multichassis LAG (MCLAG) provides node-level redundancy by grouping two FortiSwitch models together so that they appear as a single switch on the network.
What is Juniper ESI?
An ESI is a mandatory attribute that is required to enable EVPN LAG server multihoming. ESI values are encoded as 10-byte integers and are used to identify a multihomed segment. The same ESI value enabled on multiple leaf switch interfaces connected to the same server or BladeCenter form an EVPN LAG.
What is ICL link?
Inter-Chassis Links (ICLs) provide high-performance links between two Brocade DCX chassis. This enables very high density (up to 768 ports) as well as high-performance (8 Gbps) connectivity at the core of the fabric. Inter-Chassis Links (ICLs) provide high-performance links between two Brocade DCX chassis.
What is MLAG switch?
MLAG is the ability of two or more switches to act like a single switch when forming link bundles. It allows a host to uplink to two switches for physical diversity, while still having only one single bundle interface to manage.
What does Multichassis do for a MC-LAG peer?
Multichassis link protection provides link protection between the two MC-LAG peers that host an MC-LAG. If the ICCP connection is up and the ICL comes up, the peer configured as standby brings up the multichassis aggregated Ethernet interfaces shared with the peer.
How is MC-LAG configured on an AE-interface?
MC-LAG is configured on the aggregated Ethernet (ae-) bundle interface. An ae- interface is a logical interface and is globally unique, which causes the MC-LAG configuration to be exclusive and separate for a router or switch.
Can you configure multiple ICLs for MC LAG?
You can configure multiple ICLs between MC-LAG peers. Each ICL can learn up to 512K MAC addresses. You can configure additional ICLs for virtual switch instances. Multichassis link protection provides link protection between the two MC-LAG peers that host an MC-LAG.
How does MC-LAG work between two chassis?
MC-LAG is supported only between two chassis, using an interchassis link (ICL) pseudowire interface or Ethernet interface (ICL-PL field) for active-active bridging, and active-active bridging VRRP over IRB for active-active bridging.
