About the Container LSP Tab

A container LSP is a logical grouping of sub-LSPs that share the properties defined in the container. Container LSPs provide automatic adding or removing of sub-LSPs in the network based on traffic statistics. This mitigates the difficulty of finding a single path large enough to accommodate a large bandwidth reservation. Using container LSPs involves:

  • Adding a container LSP from the network information table (Container LSP tab) on the Topology page.

  • Adding a container normalization task using the Task Scheduler. During normalization, PCE calculates the number of sub-LSPs needed and if possible, provisions them. For more information, see Add a Container Normalization Task.

  • Viewing the container LSPs and their sub-LSPs, and traffic in the network information table (Container LSP tab).

Tasks You Can Perform

You can perform the following tasks:

  • Add a Container LSP. See Add a Container LSP.

  • Edit the parameters of an existing Container LSP . See Edit Container LSP Parameters.

  • Delete an existing Container LSP—On the Container LSP tab of the network information table on the Topology page, select the Container LSP that you want to delete and click the delete (trash can) icon. A confirmation message appears. Click Yes.

    The Container LSP is deleted from the network information table.

  • View sub- LSPs—From the More list, select Sub LSPs to view the associated sub LSPs. You are redirected to the Tunnel tab where the sub LSP details are displayed. You can perform add, edit, or delete LSP functions from there.
