Import Config and Tunnel Path
In the Live Network, configuration file and tunnel path information can be automatically collected using the Scheduling Live Network Collection task’s collection types “Configuration,” “Tunnel Path,” and “Transit Tunnel.”
Otherwise, in offline mode, collected configuration files and tunnel path information can be imported through the Import Network Wizard via the File>Import Data menu.
To import configuration information in offline mode, select the import type “Router Configuration” and select the Import Directory containing the configuration files. When performing an import of network configuration data, NorthStar Planner automatically records those links that are FRR-enabled as well as those LSP tunnels that request FRR protection. See Router Data Extraction Overview for more details on importing router configuration files.
To import the tunnel status and path information in offline mode, select the import type “Tunnel Path” and select the Import Directory containing the tunnel path show command output. Refer to MPLS Tunnel Extraction for more details on the commands to collect this information.
