400GBASE ZR transceiver is the industry’s first multi vendor DWDM standard, a Digital Coherent Optical module

This article describes a feature for Tap Aggregation mode, which strips IEEE 802.1BR E-Tag and Cisco VN-Tag headers from all tagged packets received on tap interface before delivering them out of tool interfaces.

802.1X is an IEEE standard protocol that prevents unauthorized devices from gaining access to the network.

Filtered Mirroring allows certain packets to be selected for mirroring, rather than all packets ingressing or

This feature allows the global configuration, "allow non ect or non ect packet thresholds" along with "set drop

BFD (Bidirectional Forwarding Detection) session telemetry allows for the collection of per session statistics as

BGP Add Path TX allows for a BGP speaker to advertise multiple paths (instead of a single best path) for a prefix towards

The BGP graceful restart mechanism has a limitation that the graceful restart time cannot exceed 4095 seconds per the

BGP Non Stop Forwarding (NSF) aims to minimize the traffic loss when the the following scenarios occur:

This feature adds support for BGP peering with multiple peers using the same IP address. The router id of those peers is

CLI extension allows for custom CLIs commands/modes to be defined in EOS. It also integrates with EOS SDK to be able to

DHCP Relay feature forwards DHCP packets between client and server when the DHCP Server is not in the same broadcast

EOS supports the DHCP Relay feature, which relays DHCP Requests/Responses between DHCP clients and DHCP servers in different subnets. 

The Dot1x Dropped Counters count the packets that get dropped for dot1x interfaces. The following

The feature allows to create a named TC DSCP mapping that can be applied on an interface. Dscp of

The feature allows assigning of class E addresses to interfaces by default with no option to turn that off and routing

This feature introduces the hardware forwarding support for IPv4 over IPv4, GRE Tunnel interfaces on Arista

The Segment security feature provides the convenience of applying policies on segments rather than interfaces or

Generic UDP Encapsulation (GUE) is a general method for encapsulating packets of arbitrary IP protocols within a UDP

Arista campus switches allow extensive and fine grained hardware based flow tracking and management features. They

This feature introduces the ability to match on 1) any BGP aggregate contributor or 2) a specific BGP aggregate’s

EOS 4.25.2F adds support for IS IS, OSPF and OSPFv3 Graceful Restart (GR) on unplanned software restarts for all

In EVPN deployment with VXLAN underlay when an EVPN type 5 prefix is imported into an IP VRF, the IGP cost of the underlay

InfluxDB telemetry streaming feature enables telemetry data collection with Telegraf on box, and allows streaming

The L2EVPN MPLS feature is available when configuring BGP in the multi agent routing protocol model.

In a multihomed EVPN MPLS configuration, BUM packets sent from a non-designated forwarder (Non-DF) PE to a designated forwarder (DF) PE must carry ESI label advertised by the egress DF PE.

A L2 sub-interface is a logical bridging endpoint associated with traffic on an interface distinguished by 802.1Q tags, where each <interface, 802.1q tag> tuple is treated as a first class bridging interface. Like other types of interfaces, a L2 sub-interface is a normal bridging endpoint in the bridging domain.

If a network device uses deep packet inspection for load balancing, RFC6790 recommends deployments to use entropy label in LDP to improve load balancing in MPLS networks by providing sufficient entropy in the label stack itself.

Line system commands are supported on all platforms. OSFP LS modules are enabled by default on insertion.

This feature allows classification of packets on QoS policy-maps based on the COS/Vlan+COS bits in the 802.1q header of the packet. CoS (Class of Service) corresponds to the Priority code point (PCP) bits in the 802.1q header.

This feature allows classification of packets based on the inner VLAN value along with the VLAN and CoS bits in a double

MPLS over GRE encapsulation support in EOS 4.17.0 enables tunneling IPv4 packets over MPLS over GRE tunnels. This

The TCP MSS clamping feature involves clamping the maximum segment size (MSS) in the TCP header of TCP SYN packets if it exceeds the configured MSS ceiling limit for the interface. Clamping MSS value helps in avoiding IP fragmentation in tunnel scenarios by ensuring that MSS is small enough to accommodate the extra overhead of GRE and tunnel outer IP headers.

For an octal port such as a QSFPDD or OSFP, this feature renumbers the ports on a system to have 4 configurable

In a symmetric network topology, for the same ECMP (Equal Cost Multi Path) route programmed at different devices in a

This feature introduces the support for OSPF routes over GRE tunnels under default as well as non-default VRFs. The feature is disabled by default. 

This feature provides isolation and allows segregating/dividing the link state database based on interface. 

The current behaviour on R series products is to drop all packets marked for drop by the chip Packet Processor in the

This feature may be used for redistributing OSPFv2 leaked and non leaked routes from one instance to another when

Routes covered by a resilient equal cost multi path (RECMP) prefix are types of routes that make use of hardware tables

Routing control functions (RCF) is a new language that can be used to express BGP route filtering and attribute

RSVP TE, the Resource Reservation Protocol (RSVP) for Traffic Engineering (TE), is used to distribute MPLS labels

Sampled flow tracking with IPFIX export is supported on most of the Arista platforms. User configured sampling rate

Prior to 4.25.2F, support for BGP PIC was restricted to locally identifiable failures such as link failures. If a

EOS 4.21.3F introduces support for BGP Flowspec, as defined in RFC5575 and RFC7674. The typical use case is to filter

The multicast route counters count packets and bytes per group, source and vrf. Every multicast route will be counted when the feature is turned on if there are sufficient hardware counter resources available.
