motivation
Motivation
  • OSPF has the ability to transport non-routing information to be used by other applications (Opaque LSAs).
  • In order to not impact the convergence of routing information, a simple process is described to incrementally synchronize the routing and non-routing information residing in an OSPF LSDB.
    • The process is applicable to differentiating any two (or more) types of information in an LSDB.
incremental lsdb synchronization process
Incremental LSDB Synchronization Process
  • LSA Prioritization

The contents of the local LSDB are classified to determine which LSAs require prioritized synchronization.

LSAs containing routing-specific information SHOULD be classified as requiring prioritized synchronization.

  • Prioritized LSDB Synchronization

This step corresponds to the adjacency establishment process [RFC 2328].

LSAs classified as not requiring prioritized synchronization MUST NOT be included in DBD Packets during the Database Exchange Process. The OSPF routing table structure SHOULD be calculated at this point.

  • Final LSDB Synchronization

Any remaining LSAs SHOULD be sync’d. The routers MUST use Out-of-Band LSDB Resynchronization [RFC4811].

The process is described in terms of LSAs containing (or not) routing-specific information, but it may be generalized to include any other criteria considered significant in the local network and protocol instance.

All the routers in the OSPF domain should have the same prioritization criteria.

The last step MAY be used recursively to achieve an incremental LSDB synchronization through different types of data, making it also applicable to environments where only non-routing information exists.

flooding and database synchronization
Flooding and Database Synchronization
  • Rules for flooding lower-priority LSAs and deleting lower priority MaxAge LSAs for ILS synchronization.
    • Neighbor state MUST be maintained as to whether low-priority LSAs have been synchronized with a given neighbor: ILS-state.
    • If a given neighbor's ILS-state is Exchange or higher, then lower priority LSAs should be flooded to that neighbor.
    • A lower priority MaxAge LSA cannot be removed from the Link State Database if any the routers is in Exchange or Loading ILS-state.
  • If multiple ILS synchronizations are used for synchronization different priorities of LSAs, separate ILS-state MUST be maintained for each priority and the previously described rules MUST be applied at each priority.

    • The process complements the use of multiple instances. It is not intended as a replacement.
