  1. UW SysNet BGP Work

    When: Tues Oct 4 between 0600 and 0630 What: Enable BGP "route-target" NLRI on BGP route reflectors. This is lab tested, and no impact is expected. Why: BGP performance improvements on PEs by reducing the number of irrelevant messages they have to process. This in turn should provide some minor boost for PE convergence, but don't expect miracles. Most big ISPs use this NLRI, it's nothing new. How: One by one the config change will be put in place on r-chicago-710, r-minneapolis-511, r-uwmadison-cssc, r-uwmilwaukee-ems. BGP sessions between the route reflectors and clients will reset when the "route-target" NLRI is added. I will not proceed with the next reflector until all BGP sessions are re-established on the previous reflector. What could go wrong: EVPNs and L3VPNs could break. I plan to spot/hand check at least one EVPN and one L3VPN after my change to ensure things are working. If things are broken, I roll back the changes. Final thoughts: Our lab has EVPNs and L3VPNs so I think I've done my due diligence. The config will be staged ahead of time. I will be available on Slack or you can call the NOC if you have issues.
