Label Space in Segment Routing MPLS

Label Space in Segment Routing MPLS

Overview

Segment Routing is a protocol designed to forward data packets on a network based on source routes. Segment Routing MPLS is implemented based on the MPLS forwarding plane. Segment Routing MPLS divides a network path into several segments and assigns a segment ID (SID) to each segment and forwarding node. The segments and nodes are sequentially arranged into a segment list to form a forwarding path.

Segment Routing MPLS uses multiple SIDs. These SIDs are MPLS labels on the forwarding plane. SID planning directly affects network expansion and O&M. Improper planning may lead to network adjustments. Therefore, before deploying Segment Routing MPLS, you need to know the types, configuration methods, and range of SIDs in Segment Routing MPLS, and also understand the relationship between the SID range and MPLS LDP/RSVP-TE label range.

MPLS Label Range

SIDs are also MPLS labels. Therefore, the SID range is restricted by the MPLS label range. An MPLS label has 4 bytes. Figure 1-1 shows the structure of an MPLS label.

Figure 1-1 Structure of an MPLS label

An MPLS label contains the following fields:

  • Label: a 20-bit field that identifies a label value. The total number of labels is 2 raised to the power of 20, that is, 1048576. However, the actual label value ranges from 0 to 1048575, which is determined by the label space. Therefore, neither MPLS label values nor Segment Routing MPLS SIDs can exceed 1048575. The maximum label value varies according to the device type and may not reach 1048575 for many devices. In Segment Routing MPLS configuration for a device, you need to obtain the specific label range before planning a label space.

  • Exp: a 3-bit field used for extension. This field is used to implement the class of service (CoS) function that is similar to Ethernet 802.1p.

  • S: a 1-bit field that identifies the bottom of a label stack. MPLS supports multiple labels that may be stacked. If the S field of a label is set to 1, the label is at the bottom of the label stack.

  • TTL: an 8-bit field indicating a time to live (TTL) value. This field is the same as the TTL field in IP packets.

SIDs Used by Segment Routing MPLS

Segment Routing MPLS uses multiple types of SIDs, such as prefix SIDs, node SIDs, adjacency SIDs, Segment Routing mapping server (SRMS) SIDs, binding SIDs, and BGP egress peer engineering (EPE) SIDs. The functions of these SIDs are as follows:

  • Prefix SID: identifies the prefix of a destination address. A prefix SID is an offset within the Segment Routing global block (SRGB) range, and it is advertised by a source node. The receive end uses the local SRGB to compute label values and then generates MPLS forwarding entries. An IGP propagates the prefix SID to the other NEs. The prefix SID is visible and takes effect globally.
  • Node SID: identifies a specific network node. When an IP address is configured for a loopback interface of a node, the IP address functions as a node SID. An IGP propagates the node SID to the other NEs. The node SID is visible and takes effect globally.
  • Adjacency SID: identifies an adjacency on a network. An adjacency SID is a local SID that is outside of the SRGB range. It can either be configured manually or be assigned by an IGP dynamically. An IGP propagates the adjacency SID to the other NEs. The adjacency SID is visible globally but takes effect locally.
  • SRMS SID: used to map prefixes in the LDP domain to SIDs and advertises the SIDs with prefixes to the Segment Routing domain in a Segment Routing and LDP interworking scenario. An SRMS SID is calculated within the SRGB range based on the SRGB offset.
  • Binding SID: used to bind traffic to a specified SR-TE tunnel or SR Policy. A binding SID can also be used to calculate an inter-AS E2E SR-TE tunnel.
  • BGP EPE SID: indicates the peer-node SID, peer-Adj SID, or peer-set SID assigned by BGP EPE to a peer.
    • A peer-node SID identifies a peer node. The peers at both ends of each BGP session are assigned peer-node SIDs. An EBGP peer relationship established based on loopback interfaces may traverse multiple physical links. In this case, the peer-node SID of a peer is mapped to multiple outbound interfaces. Traffic can be forwarded through any outbound interface or be balanced by multiple outbound interfaces.

    • A peer-Adj SID identifies an adjacency to a peer. An EBGP peer relationship established based on loopback interfaces may traverse multiple physical links. In this case, each adjacency is assigned a peer-Adj SID. Only a specified link (mapped to a specified outbound interface) can be used for forwarding.

    • A peer-set SID identifies a group of peers that are planned as a set. BGP allocates a peer-set SID to the set. Each peer-set SID can map multiple outbound interfaces during forwarding. Because one peer set consists of multiple peer nodes and peer adjacencies, the SID allocated to a peer set is mapped to multiple peer-node SIDs and peer-Adj SIDs.

Prefix and node SIDs are within the local SRGB range, and binding SIDs are within the local Segment Routing local block (SRLB) range. However, adjacency and BGP EPE SIDs are configured within an unfixed static label range that is associated with the dynamic label range of the involved device.

Both the SRGB and SRLB contain locally reserved static labels. Except for the reserved MPLS label range (0 to 15) and the static label range, only a dynamic label range shared by Segment Routing MPLS and MPLS LSP/RSVP-TE is left in the label space.

The label space for each device is fixed. If MPLS LSP/RSVP-TE traffic on a device is heavy, a large number of labels are used, occupying some label space used for Segment Routing MPLS.

SID Configuration for Segment Routing MPLS

I. Prefix SID and node SID (IS-IS as an example)

a. Enable Segment Routing globally.

  1. Run the system-view command to enter the system view.

  2. Run the segment-routing command to enter the Segment Routing view.

  3. Run the commit command to make the configuration take effect.

b. Configure an SRGB.

  1. Run the system-view command to enter the system view.

  2. Run the isis [ process-id ] command to start a specified IS-IS process and enter the IS-IS view.

  3. Run the network-entity net command to set a network entity name.

  4. Run the cost-style { wide | compatible | wide-compatible } command to configure the IS-IS wide metric attribute.

    This configuration enables IS-IS processes to use TE.

  5. Run the segment-routing mpls command to enable Segment Routing for IS-IS.

  6. Run the segment-routing global-block begin-value end-value command to specify an SRGB range for the current IS-IS instance.

    If the system displays a message indicating that the desired SRGB range has been occupied, run the display segment-routing global-block command to check the available SRGB range. Alternatively, delete the configuration that occupies the SRGB range to release label space.

    # Display the available SRGB range.

      Lower SID      Upper SID      Total     
    ------------------------------------------------------
      10000          29999          20000
  7. Run the commit command to make the configuration take effect.

c. Configure a Segment Routing prefix SID.

  1. Run the system-view command to enter the system view.

  2. Run the interface loopback loopback-number command to create a loopback interface and enter the loopback interface view.

  3. Run the isis enable [ process-id ] command to enable IS-IS on the loopback interface.

  4. Run the ip address ip-address { mask | mask-length } command to configure an IP address for the loopback interface.

  5. Run the isis prefix-sid { absolute sid-value | index index-value } [ node-disable ] command to configure a SID for the IP address of the loopback interface.

  6. Run the commit command to make the configuration take effect.

II. Adjacency SID (IS-IS as an example)

After IS-IS Segment Routing is enabled, an adjacency SID is automatically generated. To disable the automatic generation of adjacency SIDs, run the segment-routing auto-adj-sid disable command. The adjacency SID may change after a device restart. If an explicit path uses an adjacency SID and the associated device is restarted, this adjacency SID must be reconfigured. You can also manually configure an adjacency SID for an explicit path. The configuration procedure is as follows:

  1. Run the system-view command to enter the system view.
  2. Run the segment-routing command to enter the Segment Routing view.
  3. Run the ipv4 adjacency local-ip-addr local-ip-address remote-ip-addr remote-ip-address sid sid-value command to configure an adjacency SID manually.

IV. Binding SID

In an E2E SR-TE scenario, perform the following steps:

  1. Run the system-view command to enter the system view.
  2. Run the interface tunnel tunnel-number command to enter the intra-AS SR-TE tunnel interface view.
  3. Run the mpls te binding-sid label label-value command to configure a binding SID for the intra-AS SR-TE tunnel.
  4. Run the commit command to make the configuration take effect.

In an SR Policy scenario, perform the following steps:

  1. Run the system-view command to enter the system view.
  2. Run the segment-routing command to enable Segment Routing globally and enter the Segment Routing view.
  3. Run the local-block begin-value end-value command to specify an SRLB range.

    If the system displays a message indicating that the desired SRLB range has been occupied, run the display segment-routing local-block command to check the available SRLB range. Alternatively, delete the configuration that occupies the SRLB range to release label space.

    # Display the available SRLB range.

Figure 1-2 Label range for Segment Routing MPLS

As shown in the preceding figure:

  • 0–15: a special label range reserved for MPLS. For example, the common implicit null label (label 3) is within this range.
  • 16–32783: a static label range. Certain static CR-LSPs and static LSPs use labels in this range. BGP EPE labels also fall into this range. For example, you can run the peer ipv4-address egress-engineering [ label static-label ] or egress-engineering peer-set peer-set-name [ label static-label ] command to configure a BGP EPE label.
  • Dynamic label ranges: are used for dynamic signaling protocols, such as LDP, RSVP-TE, MP-BGP, and IGP.
  • The remaining label range is used for other features.

A static label range and a dynamic label range of MPLS make up the first dynamic label range of Segment Routing MPLS. The static label range of Segment Routing MPLS is equal to the remaining part of the dynamic label range of MPLS. This range is used for static adjacency SIDs. You can configure a static adjacency SID using the ipv4 adjacency local-ip-addr local-ip-address remote-ip-addr remote-ip-address sid sid-value command.

The two dynamic label ranges of Segment Routing MPLS are both configurable SRGB ranges. The first dynamic Segment Routing label range contains a reserved SRGB range. No conflict occurs if you configure an SRGB in this range.

The ranges of different Segment Routing MPLS SIDs are as follows:

  • Prefix SID: The value of a prefix SID is calculated based on the offset in the SRGB range. The SRGB range is determined by [SPEC_RES_SRGB_CONFIG_BEGIN, SPEC_RES_SEGR_MAX_LABEL - SPEC_RES_GRESM_LABEL_RESERVE_LEN].
  • Node SID: The calculation method and the SRGB range of node SIDs are similar to those of prefix SIDs.
  • Adjacency SID: The value of a static adjacency SID is determined by [SPEC_RES_SEGR_MAX_LABEL - SPEC_RES_GRESM_LABEL_RESERVE_LEN + 1, SPEC_RES_SEGR_MAX_LABEL]. The value of an adjacency SID dynamically assigned by an IGP is determined by [SPEC_RES_SRGB_LABEL_MAX + 1, SPEC_RES_GRESM_MAX_LABEL]. You can run the display isis peer verbose command to check the adjacency SID assigned by IS-IS and the display ospf peer neighbor-id command to check the adjacency SID assigned by OSPF.
  • SRMS SID: The calculation method and the SRGB range of SRMS SIDs are similar to those of prefix SIDs.
  • Binding SID: needs to be configured in the SRLB range. The start value of an SRLB is SPEC_RES_SRGB_LABEL_MAX + 1. The maximum SRLB length is 65535.
  • BGP EPE SID: needs to be configured in the static label range, and is determined by [SPEC_RES_GRESM_STATIC_LABEL_MIN, SPEC_RES_GRESM_STATIC_LABEL_MAX], that is, the range from 16 to 32783.

SRGB Range

In an IGP scenario, you can run the segment-routing global-block command to configure an SRGB range. If this command is not run, no SR-BE tunnel can be generated.

Use a router as an example. The SRGB range is as follows:

  • The SRGB range is determined by PAF options [SPEC_RES_SRGB_CONFIG_BEGIN, SPEC_RES_SEGR_MAX_LABEL – SPEC_RES_GRESM_LABEL_RESERVE_LEN]. Here:

SPEC_RES_SRGB_CONFIG_BEGIN specifies the start value of an SRGB. The value is 16000 for most devices.

SPEC_RES_SEGR_MAX_LABEL specifies the maximum value of a Segment Routing MPLS label.

SPEC_RES_GRESM_LABEL_RESERVE_LEN specifies the length of a static label range reserved for SR-TE.

  • For certain devices, such as the NE40E, the SRGB range is determined by [SPEC_RES_GRESM_MIN_LABEL2, SPEC_RES_GRESM_MAX_LABEL2]. Here:

SPEC_RES_GRESM_MIN_LABEL2 specifies the start value of the second dynamic label range.

SPEC_RES_GRESM_MAX_LABEL2 specifies the end value of the second dynamic label range.

  • It is recommended that the SRGB range be [16000, 23999]. This range facilitates interworking with third-party devices. To simplify network O&M, you are advised to configure the same SRGB for all devices.
  • [SPEC_RES_SRGB_LABEL_MIN, SPEC_RES_SRGB_LABEL_MAX] is preferentially used as the SRGB range of most Huawei devices and cannot be used by other dynamic protocols. Therefore, to minimize configuration conflicts, you are advised to use labels in this range and set the same SRGB for all devices.

SPEC_RES_SRGB_LABEL_MIN specifies the start value of a reserved SRGB range. The value is 16000 for most devices.

SPEC_RES_SRGB_LABEL_MAX specifies the end value of a reserved SRGB range. The value is 47999 for most devices.

  • If the system displays a message indicating that the desired SRGB range has been occupied, run the display segment-routing dynamic global-block command to check the available SRGB range. Alternatively, delete the configuration that occupies the SRGB range to release label space. Note that deleting the configuration affects existing services.

     156502              284687              128186
  • The maximum SRGB length supported by a single IS-IS process and that supported by a single OSPF process are determined by PAF options SPEC_FUN_ISIS_SRGB_CONFIG_SIZE and SPEC_RES_OSPF_SRGB_CONFIG_SIZE, respectively. Generally, the maximum length is 65535.

SRLB Range

Use a router as an example. The SRLB range is as follows:

  • Generally, the start value of an SRLB is calculated using the formula shown below. If an available start value is greater than the calculated value, the start value is used. The start value is 48000 for most devices.

Formula: SPEC_RES_SRGB_LABEL_MAX + 1

  • An SRLB range is obtained by deducting the value of SPEC_RES_SRGB_LABEL_MAX from a configurable range.
  • The maximum SRLB length supported by each system is determined by PAF option SPEC_FUN_SRLB_CONFIG_SIZE. Generally, the maximum length is 65535.
  • SRGB and SRLB ranges are mutually exclusive. That is, the two ranges cannot overlap with each other. If they overlap, an error message is displayed, indicating that SRLB configuration fails.
  • If the system displays a message indicating that the desired SRLB range has been occupied, run the display segment-routing local-block command to check the available SRLB range. Alternatively, delete the configuration that occupies the SRLB range to release label space. Note that deleting the configuration affects existing services.

Label Conflicts and Handling Rules

Label conflicts, such as prefix conflicts, may occur on the network. Proper network planning helps avoid such conflicts.

Because prefix SIDs are manually configured, they may conflict on different devices. Label conflicts consist of prefix conflicts and SID conflicts. A prefix conflict indicates that the same prefix is associated with different SIDs, whereas a SID conflict indicates that the same SID is associated with different prefixes.

If label conflicts occur, prefix conflicts are handled prior to SID conflicts. Then, the following rules are observed to preferentially select a SID or prefix:

  1. A prefix with a larger mask is preferred.
  2. A prefix with a smaller value is preferred.
  3. A smaller SID is preferred.

For example, label conflicts occur in the following four routes expressed in the prefix/mask length SID format:

  • a. 1.1.1.1/32 1
  • b. 1.1.1.1/32 2
  • c. 2.2.2.2/32 3
  • d. 3.3.3.3/32 1

The process of handling the label conflicts is as follows:

Prefix conflicts are handled first. Routes a and b encounter a prefix conflict. Route a has a smaller SID than route b. Therefore, route a is preferred. After route b is excluded, the following three routes are left:

  • a. 1.1.1.1/32 1
  • c. 2.2.2.2/32 3
  • d. 3.3.3.3/32 1

SID conflicts are then handled. Routes a and d encounter a SID conflict. Route a has a smaller prefix than route d. Therefore, route a is preferred. After route d is excluded, the following two routes are left:

  • a. 1.1.1.1/32 1
  • c. 2.2.2.2/32 3

Summary

This document focuses on the following items:

  • Functions, configuration methods, and value ranges of SIDs in Segment Routing MPLS.
  • Functions of MPLS and Segment Routing PAF options, and the impacts of the PAF options on SRGB and SRLB configuration. The values of PAF options vary according to the device.
  • The maximum SRGB length supported by a single IGP process and the maximum SRLB length supported by a single system are both 65535. The recommended SRGB range is [16000, 47999]. To facilitate interworking with third-party devices, you are advised to configure an SRGB within the range of [16000, 23999]. For an SRLB range, using 48000 as the start value is recommended.

In actual deployment, you need to properly configure SIDs for the local device and avoid prefix SID conflicts between different devices. During the configuration, check whether conflict alarms or logs, such as OSPF_1.3.6.1.4.1.2011.5.25.353.2.1 hwSrPrefixSidConflict, OSPF/3/hwSrPrefixSidConflict_active, and ISIS/4/IS_PREFIX_SID_CONFLICT, are generated. If yes, handle the conflict according to relevant handling suggestions.
