Configuring the JUNOS Software to Enable Session Offloading on MX Series Ethernet Services Routers with MS-DPCs

The JUNOS Software enables you to configure session offloading for Multiservices DPCs on MX Series routers. This enables Fast Update Filters (FUF) at the PIC level for a multiservices interface (ms-fpc-pic-port). To configure session offloading, include the session-offload statement at the [edit chassis fpc slot-number pic number adaptive-services service-package extension-provider] hierarchy level:

[edit chassis fpc slot-number pic number adaptive-services service-package extension-provider]session-offload;

Currently, session offloading is supported only for a maximum of one multiservices interface.

Note: When session offloading is enabled for a Multiservices PIC, we recommend that you limit dynamic application awareness features for Intrusion Detection and Prevention (IDP) only for that interface.
