Configuring the IGP Shortcut

Configuring the IGP Shortcut

An IGP shortcut is configured on the ingress of a CR-LSP. The IGP shortcut prevents a route of a CR-LSP from being advertised to neighbors or used by the neighbors.



IGP shortcut and forwarding adjacency cannot be configured simultaneously.


  1. Run:


    The system view is displayed.

  2. Run:

    interface tunnel tunnel-number

    The view of the MPLS TE tunnel interface is displayed.

  3. Run:

    mpls te igp shortcut [ isis | ospf ] or mpls te igp shortcut isis hold-time interval

    The IGP shortcut is configured.

    hold-time interval specifies the period after which IS-IS responds to the Down status of the TE tunnel.

    If a TE tunnel goes Down and this parameter is not specified, IS-IS recalculates routes. If this parameter is specified, IS-IS responds to the Down status of the TE tunnel after only the specified interval elapses. It either recalculates routes or not depending on the TE tunnel status:
    • If the TE tunnel goes Up, IS-IS does not recalculate routes.
    • If the TE tunnel goes Down, IS-IS still recalculates routes.

  4. Run:

    mpls te igp metric { absolute | relative } value

    The IGP metric of the TE tunnel is configured.

    Either of the following parameters is set when configuring the metric value used by a TE tunnel during IGP shortcut path calculation:

    • If absolute is configured, the TE tunnel metric value is equal to the configured metric value.

    • If relative is configured, the TE tunnel metric value is equal to the sum of the IGP route metric value and relative TE tunnel metric value.

  5. For IS-IS, run:

    isis enable [ process-id ]

    IS-IS is enabled on the tunnel interface.

  6. For OSPF, run the following commands in sequence.

    • Run:


      The system view is displayed.

    • Run:

      ospf [ process-id ]

      The OSPF view is displayed.

    • Run:

      enable traffic-adjustment

      Traffic adjustment is enabled.

  7. Run:


    The configuration is committed.
