Sight MPLS Tunnel Manager
The tunnel technology is widely used in networks. Enterprises choose tunnels based on service features. Generally, LDP tunnels carry services that have low requirements on bandwidth and QoS, and MPLS TE tunnels carry services that have high requirements on bandwidth and QoS. To ensure that services run properly, administrators must know the following tunnel information on the current network: number of tunnels, tunnel types, path of each tunnel, tunnels with the protection function, and whether a tunnel switchover occurs.
Huawei Sight MPLS Tunnel Manager automatically discovers the MPLS TE tunnels (RSVP-TE signaling-based dynamic tunnels and CR-Static signaling-based static tunnels) and LDP tunnels that have been deployed on the network, monitors the tunnels in real time, and displays tunnel running status dynamically. In addition, Sight MPLS Tunnel Manager monitors active-standby switchovers and bypasses.
Sight MPLS Tunnel Manager allows users to configure tunnel policies using a template, which is easy and efficient.
Users can use the smart configuration tool to deliver tunnel policies in batches, which reduces errors and improves efficiency.
Sight MPLS Tunnel Manager automatically discovers tunnels deployed on the network to obtain information such as the number of tunnels, tunnel types, and tunnel status.
Sight MPLS Tunnel Manager uses the automatic discovery function to discover the MPLS TE tunnels (RSVP-TE signaling-based dynamic tunnels and CR-Static signaling-based static tunnels) and LDP tunnels that have been deployed on the network to Sight from specified or all devices.
Sight MPLS Tunnel Manager monitors tunnels in real time and dynamically displays the tunnel running status.
When receiving an alarm, Sight MPLS Tunnel Manager notifies users of the tunnel status change in a timely manner. The tunnel topology displays tunnel status and provides entries for users to view the link bandwidth information (such as bandwidth on outbound interfaces or inbound interfaces and maximum reserved bandwidth), link interface information, and whether MPLS is enabled on devices. Such information helps users to diagnose faults.
When receiving an alarm, users can directly access the Tunnel Topology page from the alarm page to check the tunnel status.
When detecting that the active LSP is faulty, Sight MPLS Tunnel Manager performs an active-standby switchover or bypasses the faulty LSP. All paths of the original tunnel before the switchover or bypass are unavailable. The active-standby tunnel switchover status is displayed in the tunnel topology.
When an LDP tunnel is faulty, all links in the tunnel topology are unavailable.
Sight MPLS Tunnel Manager cooperates with the MPLS VPN Manager so that users can quickly know the services affected by tunnel faults and check whether a service fault is caused by a tunnel fault.
In the service list of MPLS VPN Manager, users can click Tunnel List to view tunnels that carry a VPN. Users can check whether a service fault is caused by a tunnel fault based on the tunnel status.
In the tunnel list of MPLS Tunnel Manager, users can click View VPN to view VPNs carried on a tunnel and know the VPNs that will be affected by a tunnel fault.
