Platform and Infrastructure

  • Support for eventd (cRPD)—Starting in Junos OS Release 20.4R1, we support only external event policies. You can enable these policies in container RPD. In cRPD, eventd and rsyslogd run as two independent processes. The eventd process provides event interface to processes such as rpd/auditd/mgd and supports automated event policy execution.

    Use the set event-options policy policy name events [events] then command to enable an event policy and restart event-processing to restart event processing.

    By default, Python 3.x support is enabled along with existing on-box Python/SLAX functions in cRPD environment.

    Use the [edit system scripts language python3] command to enable and to support python event automation.

    [See event-options, events and event-policy.]

  • Support for Configuring cRPD through SONiC (PTX10008)—Juniper Networks’ PTX10008 router supports configuring cRPD in SONiC through the config_db.json configuration utility. The config_db.json utility is a local redis database (redis-db). You need to do a config save and config load for the configurations to take effect in cRPD.

  • Support for cRPD in SONiC (PTX10008)—cRPD routing stack is supported on PTX10008 router running SONiC.
