Service Abnormality Occurred Because the Number of LSPs for 32-bit Mask Routes on an NE80E Exceeded the Limit

Publication Date:  2013-10-08  |   Views:  167  |   Downloads:  0  |   Author:  54735  |   Document ID:  ETC0001085877


Issue Description

The networking was as follows:

MA5200G----------NE80----    ------NE80E_1------------- NE80E_2

*.185.96.207    *.185.96.129       *.185.96.1           *.185.96.2

All devices ran OSPF for communication over the public network, and MA5200G and NE80E_2 established an MP-BGP neighbor relationships.

After an active/standby switchover occurred on the MA5200G, it failed to establish the BGP neighbor relationship with NE80E_2.

Handling Process

To address the issue, Huawei performed the following operations and observed the following information:

1. Confirmed that all devices learn OSPF routes normally and they can successfully loopback interface address of each other's.

2. Found that BGP packets were transmitted over LSPs.

3. Found that NE80E_1 had a route destined for *.185.96.207.

However, did not find the LSP for 185.96.207.

The LDP session between NE80E_1 and NE was established successfully.

Concluded that NE80E_1 failed to distribute a label to the route *.185.96.207, and thus the LSP between the MA5200G and NE80E_2 was incomplete. As a result, the BGP neighbor relationship could not be established.

4. Viewed the number of LDP LSPs on NE80E_1 and found the number of LSPs for 32-bit mask routes exceeded 1024.

Root Cause

The number of LSPs for 32-bit mask routes exceeded the limit of VRP5.30-310032.13.

Huawei ran the undo lsp-trigger command on the NE80 to decrease the number of LSPs for 32-bit mask routes so that the number of such LSPs on NE80E of the core layer was less than 1024.


1. Try to avoid advertising 32-bit mask host routes that will not be used to the MPLS domain of the public network.

2. Disable lsp-trigger all.
