IS-IS Overload

IS-IS Overload

IS-IS Overload allows a device to use the IS-IS overload bit to identify the overload state. The IS-IS overload bit is the OL field in an IS-IS LSP. After the overload bit is set on a device, other devices ignore this device when performing SPF calculation and consider only the direct routes of the device.

Figure 7-10 IS-IS Overload

As shown in Figure 7-10, RouterB forwards the packets sent from RouterA to network segment If the overload bit in the LSP sent from RouterB is set to 1, RouterA considers the LSDB of RouterB incomplete and sends packets to through RouterD and RouterE. This process does not affect the packets sent to the directly connected network segment of RouterB.

If a device cannot store new LSPs and fails to synchronize the LSDB, the routes calculated by this device are incorrect. In this situation, the device enters the overload state and does not calculate the routes passing through this device; however, the direct routes of the device are still valid.

A device may enter the overload state because of device abnormalities or is manually configured to enter the overload state. When an IS-IS device on the network needs to be upgraded or maintained, isolate this device from the network temporarily and set the overload bit on the device to prevent other devices from using this device to forward traffic.
  • If the system enters the overload state because of an abnormality, the system deletes all the imported or leaked routes.
  • If the system is configured to enter the overload state, the system determines whether to delete all the imported or leaked routes based on the configuration.
