Release Information

Statement introduced in Junos OS Release 15.1.

Statement introduced in Junos OS Release 17.2R1 for QFX10000 Series switches.

Description

Insert the entropy label into the BGP labeled unicast LSP packets, which assists the transit router in load-balancing BGP traffic across equal-cost multipaths or link aggregation groups. The ingress label edge router inspects the flow information of a packet and maps it to an entropy label, which is inserted into the BGP label stack. LSRs in the core use this entropy label as the key to hash the packet and direct it to the correct path.

Options

import policy-name (Optional) Specify a policy that lists the routes that allow the use of entropy labels.
no-next-hop-validation(Optional) Do not validate the next-hop field in the entropy label capability attribute against the route next hop.
