实验环境打算用trex打流,然后用下面环境测试cable,但物理server配置好路由后,发现只能收路由,不转发流量,我们确认已经开启了ipv4转发的指令,路由也是正常的,但就是不work,所以我在EVE NG的环境上搭了一个类似的环境,确认下是否是trex本身的问题;

# sysctl -a |grep net.ipv4.conf.all.forwarding
net.ipv4.conf.all.forwarding = 1



Refer to Telnet mode







[root@beihe-terminal-server ~]# CR1
Connected to
Escape character is '^]'.


<HUAWEI>dis ver^H^H^H^H  <<< 4个退格键

通过“Crtl + ]”退出当前session,然后通过“status”来查看当前Telnet连接的模式,可以看到是 “obsolete linemode”, 过时的Line mode?😂:

telnet> status
Connected to
Operating in obsolete linemode
Local character echo
Escape character is '^]'.



Telemetry Receiver by UDP+KV-GPB

In the article, only show as follow (because easy to show how to work):

Protocol: UDP; Port: 5234

Encoding: KV-GPB

For more detailed information, you can reference my colleague’s GitHub, which includes more examples, e.g GRPC.

AlexFengCisco / Telemetry_Receiver

GRPC Update Info:

If use GRPC not TCP/UDP, that will have standard function, you will not need to write “DECODE_FN_MAP…”, function will auto generate, direct to use. Simple list steps:

  1. Get GRPC protobuf (e.g “mdt_grpc_dialout”) from cisco / bigmuddy-network-telemetry-proto
  2. Install/use compile tools, suggest install python virtual env, you can reference 在MacOS中部署Python虚拟开发环境
(telemetry-protocol) [root@telemetry telemetry-protocol]# python -V
Python 3.6.8
(telemetry-protocol) [root@telemetry telemetry-protocol]# easy_install pip
(telemetry-protocol) [root@telemetry telemetry-protocol]# pip install grpcio
(telemetry-protocol) [root@telemetry telemetry-protocol]# pip install protobuf
(telemetry-protocol) [root@telemetry telemetry-protocol]# pip install grpcio_tools
(telemetry-protocol) [root@telemetry telemetry-protocol]# python -m grpc_tools.protoc -I. --python_out=. --grpc_python_out=. cisco_grpc_dialout.proto
(telemetry-protocol) [root@telemetry telemetry-protocol]# ls -l|grep cisco

Follow all file if you need grpc protocol:
[root@telemetry grpc-dailout]# ls -l
total 36

DX6 on Linux by uSID

The Linux come from by my compiled kernel that supports uSID, please check my last blog: Compile SRv6 uSID and VPP on ubuntu 20.04

Before doing SRv6 lab, please double confirm enable the function by following cmd:

sysctl -w net.ipv6.conf.all.forwarding=1
sysctl -w net.ipv4.conf.all.forwarding=1
sysctl -w net.ipv6.conf.all.seg6_enabled=1

Check by following cmd:

root@vm1:/home/cisco# sysctl -a |grep net.ipv6.conf.all.forwarding
net.ipv6.conf.all.forwarding = 1

Above cmd will disappear after reboot, you can permanently write to “/etc/sysctl.conf”.

Btw, how to config srv6 and usid, reference follows:

SRv6 uSID Linux Iproute2

How to deploy xrv9k in vCenter if you have only qcow2 image?

At some times, we only have a qcow2 image, but ESXI(vCenter) only supports vmdk, how to do deploy? In the video guide, I will show how to convert img to vmdk from qcow2, then deploy by import exist hardware(vmdk).

Btw, xrv9k supports only 3 virtual interfaces: e1000, virtio, and VMXnet3. Please notices not support e1000e!
