3 Algorhyme V2, by Ray Perlner I hope that we shall one day see A graph more lovely than a tree. A graph to boost efficiency While still configuration-free. A network where RBridges can Route packets to their target LAN. The paths they find, to our elation, Are least cost paths to destination! With packet hop counts we now see, The network need not be loop-free! RBridges work transparently, Without a common spanning tree.

5 LANs Get L2 Multipathing Core Aggregation Servers Today: STP Single Path Core Aggregation Next: L2 Multi Path Servers Access

6 RBridges Overview RB Implement TRILL protocol Use link state routing Perform L2 forwarding Provide point-to-point forwarding with zero configuration Can auto configure themselves RBridges forwarding tables scale with the number of RBridges RBridges know what options other RBridges support Support multipathing for unicast and multicast traffic Compatible with classic bridges and can be deployed in bridged LANs Ingress RBridge adds TRILL & outer MAC headers to frames Outer MAC header is modified hop-by- hop as with routing Egress RBridge decapsulates frames and learns the association of the Inner MAC SA with the Source RBridge nickname

7 How RBridges Work? Designated RBridge - DRB RBridges discover each other by exchanging TRILL IS-IS (or FSPF) Hello frames TRILL Hellos are sent to the All-IS-IS- RBridges multicast address Using link state protocol (IS-IS or FSPF), a single Designated RBridge (DRB) is elected from among all RBridges on the LAN The DRB specifies the Appointed Forwarder (AF) for each VLAN The DRB also specifies the Designated VLAN for inter-RBridge communication RB 1RB 2RB 3 RB 4RB 5 DRB AF VLAN2

8 How RBridges Work? Appointed Forwarder - AF The DRB specifies the Appointed Forwarder (AF) for each VLAN DRB can also be the AF Only ONE AF can be appointed per VLAN; One VLAN - One AF The AF is in charge of handling all native frames in the VLAN Ingress RBridge function: Encapsulates TRILL data frame Egress RBridge function: Decapsulates TRILL data frames

9 TRILL Encapsulation Unicast data path 1.Host sends frames 2.RB1 adds TRILL header and outer MAC header 3.RB3 removes TRILL header and associates MAC-H with RB1 4.Target receives frames Known unicast destinations are forwarded RBridge hop by RBridge hop toward the egress RBridge

10 Utilizing ECMP Paths & Reordering TRILL supports up to 64 ECMP paths Packet (frames) ordering maintained within flows RBridges are required to maintain frame ordering internally When multi-pathing is used, all frames for an order-dependent flow must be sent on the same path if unicast or the same distribution tree if multi- destination Re-ordering can occur when A destination address transitions between being known and unknown A topology change occurs 10 6/1/2014© 2010 Brocade Communications Systems, Inc.
