Configuring an SA Cache

Configuring an SA Cache

An SA cache is used to locally save (S, G) information carried in the Source Active (SA) messages. If a router needs to receive multicast data, it directly obtains useful (S, G) information from the SA cache. Setting the maximum number of (S, G) entries in an SA cache can prevent Deny of Service (DoS) attacks. You are allowed to disable the SA cache function on the NE40E.

Context

By default, the SA cache function is enabled on the router configured with an MSDP peer.

Procedure

  • Set the maximum number of (S, G) entries in an SA cache.

    To prevent DoS attacks, performing this configuration on all MSDP peers is recommended.

    1. Run system-view

      The system view is displayed.

    2. Run msdp [ vpn-instance vpn-instance-name ]

      The MSDP view is displayed.

    3. Run peer peer-address sa-cache-maximum sa-limit

      The maximum number of (S, G) entries in the SA cache is set.

      • peer-address: specifies the IP address of a remote MSDP peer.

      • sa-limit: specifies the maximum number of (S, G) entries in the SA cache. If the specified maximum number is smaller than the SA cache specification, the specified value takes effect; otherwise, the SA cache specification takes effect.

    4. Run commit

      The configuration is committed.

  • Disable the SA cache function.
    1. Run system-view

      The system view is displayed.

    2. Run msdp [ vpn-instance vpn-instance-name ]

      The MSDP view is displayed.

    3. Run undo cache-sa-enable

      The SA cache function is disabled.

      After the SA cache function is disabled, an RP directly forwards the received SA messages to remote MSDP peers. The router does not save the (S, G) information carried in the SA messages locally. If the router needs to receive multicast data, it must wait for the SA message sent by the MSDP peer in the next sending period. This may result in a delay in obtaining multicast source information.

      You can run the cache-sa-enable command in the MSDP view to enable the SA cache function.

    4. Run commit

      The configuration is committed.
