Proxy Ping Motivation

  • Scalability

    • Control

      • number of replies

      • network wide processing of MPLS Echo Requests

    • Scoping can limit the number of replies but still requires processing at the ‘replying’ node

    • In some cases, scoping is not desired, but responses are only needed from a small region of the topology

  • mLDP support

    • Trace from leaf to route

    • Previous Hop Information

Mcast LSP Trace

Responding Nodes

This pass:














Proxy LSP Ping

  • Proxy Echo Request

    • Out of band message to a node on the multicast tree

    • Requests node to insert an inband MPLS Echo Request

    • Optionally asks for a Proxy Echo Reply

  • Proxy Echo Reply

    • Verifies that FEC was valid and that the Echo Reply will be/was sent

    • Supplies PHOP information (if requested)

P2MP-TE Tracing

  • Root node usually knows the tree topology

  • Suppose a few nodes are failing in a very large tree

  • Fault is likely to be close to those nodes

  • Proxy Echo Request allows traceroute to proceed in reverse

  • Greatly limits the number of nodes replying

Next-Hop Scoping

  • Requester

    • Adds the next-hop IP address to the Proxy Echo Parameters Object

    • Sends Proxy Echo Request to proxy node

  • Proxy node

    • Only sends an MPLS Echo Request on the listed interfaces

Multicast LDP (mLDP) Tracing

  • Multicast LDP LSPs are initiated by the leaf nodes

  • Root node may not know the tree topology

  • Failure is most likely to be detected at leaf

  • Leaf is a logical place to begin tracing

  • Proxy Echo Responses can be used to sequentially learn the PHOPs from a leaf to the route

  • Tree is traced from leaf to root
