Provision Multiple LSPs

 

To provision multiple LSPs in the network topology, navigate to Applications>Provision Multiple LSPs. The Provision Multiple LSPs window is displayed as shown in Figure 1.

The Provision Multiple LSPs window has Properties, Advanced, and Scheduling tabs. Table 1 describes the fields available in the Properties tab.

Field

Description

ID Prefix

You can enter a prefix to be applied to all of the tunnel names that are created.

Bandwidth

Required. Bandwidth immediately followed by units (no space in between). Valid units are:

  • B or b (bps)

  • M or m (Mbps)

  • K or k (Kbps)

  • G or g (Gbps)

Examples: 50M, 1000b, 25g.

If you enter a value without units, bps is applied.

Setup

RSVP setup priority for the tunnel traffic. Priority levels range from 0 (highest priority) through 7 (lowest priority). The default is 7, which is the standard MPLS LSP definition in Junos OS.

Count

Number of copies of the tunnels to create. The default is 1. For example, if you specify a count of 2, two copies of each tunnel are created.

Hold

RSVP hold priority for the tunnel traffic. Priority levels range from 0 (highest priority) through 7 (lowest priority). The default is 7, which is the standard MPLS LSP definition in Junos OS.

Node A column

Select the Node A nodes. If you select the same nodes for Node A and Node Z, a full mesh of tunnels is created. See Table 2 for selection method options.

Node Z column

Select the Node Z nodes. If you select the same nodes for Node Z and Node A, a full mesh of tunnels is created. See Table 2 for selection method options.

Node Z Tag

The only available value at this time is default.

Under the Node A and Node Z columns are several buttons to aid in selecting the tunnel endpoints. Table 2 describes how to use these buttons.

Button

Function

(world)

Select one or more nodes on the topology map, then click the globe button to add them to the Node column.

(plus)

Click the plus button to add all of the nodes in the topology map to the Node column.

(minus)

Select a node in the Node column and click the minus button to remove it from the Node column. Ctrl-click to select multiple nodes.

(rt arrow)

Click the right-arrow button to add all of the nodes in the Node A column to the Node Z column.

On the Advanced tab, you can specify coloring parameters as shown in Figure 2 and described in Table 3.

Coloring Include All

Double click in this field to display the Modify Coloring Include All window. Select the appropriate check boxes. Click OK when finished.

Coloring Include Any

Double click in this field to display the Modify Coloring Include Any window. Select the appropriate check boxes. Click OK when finished.

Scheduling relates to bandwidth calendaring. By default, tunnel creation is not scheduled, which means that tunnels are provisioned immediately upon submission. Click the Scheduling tab in the Provision Multiple LSPs window to access the fields for setting up the date/time interval.

Select Once to select start and end parameters for a single event. Select Daily to select start and end parameters for a recurring daily event. Click the calendar icon beside the fields to select the start and end dates, and beginning and ending times.

Note

The time zone is the server time zone.
