Source Packet Routing in Networking (SPRING) or Segment Routing

  • Avoid microloops in OSPFv2 segment routing networks (ACX5448, ACX6360, MX Series, PTX Series, and QFX10002) —Starting in Junos OS Release 22.1R1, you can enable post-convergence path calculation on a device to avoid microloops if a link or metric changes in an OSPFv2 segment routing network. Note that microloop avoidance is not a replacement for local repair mechanisms such as topology-independent loop-free alternate (TI-LFA), which detects local failure very fast and activates a precomputed loop-free alternative path.

    To configure microloop avoidance in an OSPFv2 segment routing network, include the maximum-labels and delay milliseconds statements at the [edit protocols ospf spf-options microloop avoidance post-convergence-path] hierarchy level.
