Understanding IS-IS Flood Group

IS-IS supports flood-group. This feature limits link-state packet data unit (PDU) flooding over IS-IS interfaces.

A link-state packet (LSP) that is not self-originated will be flooded only through the interface belonging to the flood group that has the configured area ID in the LSP. This helps minimize the routes and topology information, thus ensuring optimal convergence. You can segregate both Level 1 and Level 2 IS-IS routers into flood groups by using area IDs as tags to identify a flood group. Configure interfaces with specific area IDs to modify the flooding behavior as per your requirements. To enable IS-IS flood group, include the flood-group flood-group-area-ID statement at the [edit protocols isis interface] hierarchy level.
