Hierarchy Level


Enable ingress node replication for a specified Virtual Extensible LAN (VXLAN) that is managed by the Open vSwitch Database (OVSDB) management protocol.

With this feature enabled, instead of service nodes, Juniper Networks devices with OVSDB implemented handle incoming broadcast, unknown unicast, or multicast (BUM) traffic. For more information about the scenarios in which you can use ingress node replication and how it works, see Understanding How Layer 2 BUM and Layer 3 Routed Multicast Traffic Are Handled with OVSDB.


When Juniper Networks devices replicate Layer 2 BUM packets to a large number of remote software VTEPs, the performance of the Juniper Networks devices might be impacted.


If you do not include the ingress-node-replication statement, one or more service nodes handle BUM traffic.
