What’s Changed

Learn about what changed in this release for QFX Series.

General Routing

  • New ARP and NDP packet classification (QFX10002, QFX10008, and QFX10016)—We've introduced two control plane classes for ARP and NDP packets received over VTEP interface. When your device identifies a packet as ARP or NDP, it performs an ingress port check which verifies whether the VTEP interface receives these packets. If VTEP interface receives the packet, datapath re-writes the control plane class to the newly defined values. Based on this new control plane class, the system performs the remaining packet processing and forwards the packets toward the host path. The system adds a separate DDoS policer to this ARP traffic, which ensures that the ARP traffic is not triggering underlay ARP DDoS violation.

Routing Protocols

  • AR replicators with OISM install multicast states only on the OISM SBD (QFX5130-32CD and QFX5700)—In an EVPN-VXLAN ERB fabric with many VLANs, QFX5130-32CD and QFX5700 switches running as assisted replication (AR) replicators with optimized intersubnet multicast (OISM) might have scaling issues when they install multicast (*,G) states (with IGMPv2) or (S,G) states (with IGMPv3). As a result, these switches only install these multicast states on the OISM supplemental bridge domain (SBD) VLAN. they don't install these states on all OISM revenue bridge domain VLANs. On those devices, you see multicast group routes only on the SBD in show multicast snooping route command output.
