Configuring IPv6 IS-IS Route Summarization

Configuring IPv6 IS-IS Route Summarization

To speed up IPv6 route lookup and simplify route management on a large-scale IS-IS network, configure IS-IS route summarization to reduce the number of IS-IS routes in a routing table.

Usage Scenario

The IS-IS routing table of a device on a medium or large IS-IS network contains a large number of routing entries. Storing the routing table consumes a large number of memory resources, and transmitting and processing routing information consume lots of network resources. IS-IS route summarization can solve this problem.

Route summarization is the process of summarizing routes that share the same next hop but are destined for different subnets of a network segment into one route. The system then advertises the summary route to other network segments. Route summarization on a large-scale IS-IS network reduces the number of routes in a routing table and minimizes system resource consumption. In addition, if a specific link frequently alternates between Up and Down, the link status changes will not be advertised to devices that are located beyond the summarized route network segment, which prevents route flapping and improves network stability.

Pre-configuration Tasks

Before configuring IPv6 IS-IS route summarization, complete the following tasks:

  • Configure IPv6 addresses for interfaces to ensure that neighboring devices are reachable at the network layer.


  1. Run system-view

    The system view is displayed.

  2. Run isis [ process-id ]

    The IS-IS view is displayed.

  3. Run ipv6 summary ipv6-address prefix-length [ avoid-feedback | generate_null0_route | tag tag-value | [ level-1 | level-1-2 | level-2 ] ] *

    The specified IPv6 IS-IS routes are summarized into one IS-IS route.


    After IPv6 route summarization is configured on an IS, the local IPv6 routing table still contains all specific routes before the summarization.

    The routing tables on other ISs that receive the LSP from the local IS contain only the summary route, and the summary route is deleted only after all its specific routes are deleted.

  4. Run commit

    The configuration is committed.

Checking the Configurations

After configuring IPv6 route summarization, perform the following steps to check whether the route summarization function has taken effect.
  • Run the display isis route command to check summary routes in the IS-IS routing table.

  • Run the display ipv6 routing-table [ verbose ] command to check summary routes in the IPv6 routing table.

Run the display isis route command to check summary routes in IS-IS process 1.
