A variety of dynamic counter features, primarily configured by the [no] hardware counter feature [feature] CLI commands, may be enabled simultaneously. Compatibility of these features has been enhanced to allow for greater flexibility in simultaneously enabled counter features. 

As Ethernet technologies made their way into the Metropolitan Area Networks (MAN) and the Wide Area Networks (WAN), from the conventional enterprise level usage, they are now widely being used by service providers to provide end-to-end connectivity to customers. Such service provider networks are typically spread across large geographical areas. Additionally, the service providers themselves may be relying on certain internet backbone providers, referred to as “operators”, to provide connectivity in case the geographical area to be covered is too huge. This mode of operation makes the task of Operations, Administration and Maintenance ( OAM ) of such networks to be far more challenging, and the ability of service providers to respond to such network faults swiftly directly impacts their competitiveness.

For MPLS forwarded traffic the tunnel destination needs to know the address-family of the payload IP/IPv6 packet to correctly parse the header. On some platforms this address-family is deduced from the address family of the Bottom of stack( BOS ) MPLS label seen by the router or by relying on the Ether Type in the Ethernet header.

IPSec tunnel mode support allows the customer to encrypt traffic transiting between two tunnel endpoints.

Arista's 7130 Connect Series of Layer 1+ switches are powerful network devices designed for ultra low latency and offer a wealth of integrated management features and functionalities.

MetaWatch is a FPGA-based feature available for Arista 7130 L-Series and LB-Series platforms. It provides precise timestamping of packets, aggregation and deep buffering for up to 48x Ethernet links at 10G. Timestamp information and other metadata such as device and port identifiers are appended to the end of the packet as a trailer.

This feature introduces the possibility of creating Tap Aggregation PMF profiles consisting of 80 bit keys, to make a more efficient use of TCAM resources. Previously, we could only have key sizes of 160 or 320 bits.

This article describes the TAP Aggregation 802.1Q (VLAN) tag stripping feature. This feature allows up to two of the outermost incoming 802.1Q tags to be stripped, and can be configured on a traffic steering policy or a tool port.

Identity tagging is an existing Tap Aggregation feature that allows a 802.1Q header to be added to packets sent by tool ports with a configurable identity value.

This document describes the truncation capability for Tap Aggregation, which allows tapped traffic to be truncated to a smaller size before being transmitted.
