Configuring Packages on the PIC

JUNOS SDK applications are installed on the Multiservices PIC in one or more packages. To designate which SDK application package to install on a given PIC, include the package package-name option at the [edit chassis fpc slot-number pic pic-number adaptive-services service-package extension-provider] hierarchy level:.

[edit chassis fpc slot-number pic pic-number adaptive-services service-package]extension-provider {package (Loading on PIC) package-name;}

Up to eight packages can be installed on a PIC; however, only one data package is allowed per PIC.

Note: When the extension-provider statement is first configured, the PIC reboots. When any package setting is added or removed, the PIC reboots.

As of JUNOS Release 9.5, a stateful firewall plug-in is provided as part of the jbundle package. To load this plug-in on the PIC, include the package jservices-sfw statement at the [edit chassis fpc slot-number pic slot-number adaptive-services service-package extension-provider] hierarchy level.


user@host# show chassis
fpc 0;
    pic 0;
        adaptive-services;
            service-package;
                extension-provider;
                    control-cores 1;
                    data-cores 4;
                    object-cache-size 128;
                    package jservices-sfw; 
                    policy-db-size 64;
                }
            }
        }
    }
}

Note: You cannot install both a JUNOS service package and an SDK application package on the same PIC. However, you can load both the jservices-sfw package and a JUNOS SDK application package on the same PIC.
