routing (System Processes)
Statement introduced in Junos OS Release 13.3 R4.
Configure routing protocols process (rpd) mode.
force-32-bit mode is used in Junos 15.1F2 and prior releases
auto-64-bit mode is used starting in Junos 15.1F3
This option is not applicable for logical systems.
Starting in Junos 15.1F3, 15.1R2, 15.1R3, and 15.2R1, 64-bit mode is enabled by default on systems that support it and which have at least 16 GB of RAM.
For MX Series routers, virtual private LAN service (VPLS) dynamic profiles are not supported with the 64-bit mode routing protocol process (rpd). To enable VPLS dynamic profiles configuration, configure the routing process to use 32-bit mode.
You need not restart the routing protocol process (rpd) to use the 64-bit mode. However, forcing rpd from 32-bit to 64-bit or 64-bit-to 32-bit will restart the rpd process, which can impact the routing protocols. For this reason, it is recommended to perform these changes in a maintenance window.
