create geneve tunnel

create geneve tunnel local <local-vtep-addr> {remote <remote-vtep-addr>|group <mcast-vtep-addr> <intf-name>} vni <nn> [encap-vrf-id <nn>] [decap-next [l2|node <name>]] [l3-mode] [del]

Add or delete a GENEVE Tunnel.

GENEVE provides the features needed to allow L2 bridge domains (BDs) to span multiple servers. This is done by building an L2 overlay on top of an L3 network underlay using GENEVE tunnels.

This makes it possible for servers to be co-located in the same data center or be separated geographically as long as they are reachable through the underlay L3 network.

You can refer to this kind of L2 overlay bridge domain as a GENEVE segment.

Example of how to create a GENEVE Tunnel:

create geneve tunnel local 10.0.3.1 remote 10.0.3.3 vni 13 encap-vrf-id 7

Example of how to delete a GENEVE Tunnel:

create geneve tunnel local 10.0.3.1 remote 10.0.3.3 vni 13 del

set interface ip geneve-bypass

set interface ip geneve-bypass <interface> [del]

This command adds the ‘ip4-geneve-bypass’ graph node for a given interface. By adding the IPv4 geneve-bypass graph node to an interface, the node checks for and validate input geneve packet and bypass ip4-lookup, ip4-local, ip4-udp-lookup nodes to speedup geneve packet forwarding. This node will cause extra overhead to for non-geneve packets which is kept at a minimum.

Example of graph node before ip4-geneve-bypass is enabled:

show vlib graph ip4-geneve-bypass

           Name                      Next                    Previous
ip4-geneve-bypass                error-drop [0]
                               geneve4-input [1]
                                ip4-lookup [2]

Example of how to enable ip4-geneve-bypass on an interface:

set interface ip geneve-bypass GigabitEthernet2/0/0

Example of graph node after ip4-geneve-bypass is enabled:

show vlib graph ip4-geneve-bypass

           Name           Next                    Previous
ip4-geneve-bypass     error-drop [0]              ip4-input
                    geneve4-input [1]        ip4-input-no-checksum
                     ip4-lookup [2]

Example of how to display the feature enabled on an interface:

show ip interface features GigabitEthernet2/0/0

IP feature paths configured on GigabitEthernet2/0/0...
...
ipv4 unicast:
  ip4-geneve-bypass
  ip4-lookup

Example of how to disable ip4-geneve-bypass on an interface:

set interface ip geneve-bypass GigabitEthernet2/0/0 del

set interface ip6 geneve-bypass

set interface ip6 geneve-bypass <interface> [del]

This command adds the ‘ip6-geneve-bypass’ graph node for a given interface. By adding the IPv6 geneve-bypass graph node to an interface, the node checks for and validate input geneve packet and bypass ip6-lookup, ip6-local, ip6-udp-lookup nodes to speedup geneve packet forwarding. This node will cause extra overhead to for non-geneve packets which is kept at a minimum.

Example of graph node before ip6-geneve-bypass is enabled:

show vlib graph ip6-geneve-bypass

           Name                      Next                    Previous

                               geneve6-input [1]
                                ip6-lookup [2]

Example of how to enable ip6-geneve-bypass on an interface:

set interface ip6 geneve-bypass GigabitEthernet2/0/0

Example of graph node after ip6-geneve-bypass is enabled:

show vlib graph ip6-geneve-bypass
