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

Multiple dynamic counter features may be enabled simultaneously, primarily configured using the [no] hardware counter feature [feature] CLI commands. Compatibility of these features has been enhanced to allow for greater flexibility in simultaneously enabled counter features. Changes in counter feature compatibility across EOS releases is detailed below.

IS-IS flexible algorithm (FlexAlgo) provides a lightweight, simplified mechanism for performing basic traffic engineering functions within a single IS-IS area. FlexAlgo requires the cooperation of all nodes within the IS-IS area but does not require an external controller. Paths are computed by each node within the area, resulting in an MPLS switched forwarding path to nodes that are advertising a node Segment Identifier (SID) for the algorithm. The results of the path computation are placed in the colored tunnel RIB or system tunnel RIB, which simplifies route resolution.

This feature will allow the user to select whether port mirror destinations of type GRE tunnel include the optional “key” field in the GRE header on certain platforms. The key field allows the user to uniquely identify a particular packet flow. The feature also allows the user to specify the value of the 32 bit key field.

Generic UDP Encapsulation (GUE) is a general method for encapsulating packets of arbitrary IP protocols within a UDP tunnel. GUE provides an extensible header format with optional data. In this release, the ability to encapsulate MPLS over GUE packets of variant 1 header format has been added. 

Network administrators require access to flow information that passes through various network elements, for the purpose of analyzing and monitoring their networks. This feature provides access to IP flow information by sampling traffic flows in ingress and/or egress directions on the interfaces on which it is configured.

This is an infrastructure that provides management of SSL certificates, keys and profiles. SSL/TLS is an application-layer protocol that provides secure transport between client and server through a combination of authentication, encryption and data integrity. SSL/TLS uses certificates and private-public key pairs to provide this security.
