Hierarchy Level


Enable vxlan-gbp-l3-profile on the tunnel termination endpoint in your EVPN-VXLAN deployment to support group-based policies. This setting tells the switch to allocate a share of its resources for L2/L3 group-based policies, whereas otherwise the resources would remain committed for use by all other flows.

The vxlan-gbp-l3-profile profile is suitable for an edge device running in a L3 intensive network where more space in the host-table is required.

Note that for switches in a virtual chassis, the device must be rebooted for this setting to apply; for stand-alone switches the packet forwarding engine (PFE) restarts.

Table 1 shows the maximum GBP supported configuration with 1K unique tags.


The vxlan-gbp-l3-profile is not applicable for the EX4100 switches.
