In an MLAG setup, periodic TCP/UDP heartbeats are sent over peer link to ensure IP connectivity between peers. Prior

If an MLAG flaps on one peer, then we may have to remap the MAC addresses learned, such that the reachability is via the

EOS 4.15.0F adds support for MPLS encapsulation of IP packets in EOS. The functionality is exposed through two

Multiprotocol Label Switching (MPLS) is a networking process that replaces complete network addresses with short

MPLS-over-GRE encapsulation support in EOS 4.17.0 enables tunneling IPv4 packets over MPLS over GRE tunnels. This feature leverages next-hop group support in EOS. With this feature, IPv4 routes may be resolved via MPLS-over-GRE next-hop group to be able to push one MPLS label and then GRE encapsulate the resulting labelled IPv4 packet before sending out of the egress interface.

This feature allows the Arista switch to act as the tunnel head for an MPLS tunnel and is exposed through two

While migrating from PVST to MSTP, or vice verse, the network engineer may choose not to run MSTP throughout the

In Tap Aggregation mode, an interface can be configured as tap or tool port. Tap ports are used to 'tap' the traffic and

The NAT Application Gateway (ALG) feature allows FTP connections between client server to be translated using

NAT Peer State Synchronization feature provides redundancy and resiliency for Dynamic NAT across a pair of devices in an attempt to mitigate the risk of single NAT device failure. Each switch advertises connection state updates to its peer.  State update consists of connection creation, connection state change (TCP mostly) or connection tear down

In the 13.0 release, CloudVision Cognitive Unified Edge (CV-CUE) adds a new report and also includes some enhancements to existing reports.

The nexthop group feature allows users to manually configure a set of tunnels. Nexthop group counters provide the ability to count packets and bytes associated with each tunnel nexthop, irrespective of the number of times it appears in one or more nexthop groups. In other words, if a nexthop group entry shares a tunnel resource with another entry, they will also share the same counter.

Nexthop selection using GRE key allows for nexthop routing selection based on the GRE key of a GRE encapsulated IP

Nexthop group match in PBR policy enables the user to match incoming packets being routed to a specified nexthop group
