Hierarchy Level


Limit the number of entries that can be learned on an interface through the MAC-IP bindings database. Depending on the Juniper Networks device, this limit can be applied to EVPN instances, bridge domains configured in a virtual-switch routing instance, or VLANs configured in a virtual-switch routing instance.

To apply this limit systemwide, use the global-mac-ip-limit statement at the [edit protocols l2-learning] hierarchy level.



Specify the maximum number of MAC-IP bindings per interface. After that maximum is reached, no additional MAC-IP entries are added to the database.

  • Range: 1 through 1024.

  • Default: 1024
