The difference between the two forms of authentication is in the level of security provided. In case of clear text authentication, the password is specified as text in the authentication TLV, making it possible for an attacker to break the authentication by sniffing and capturing IS-IS PDUs on the network.

LANZ is the EOS Latency and congestion ANalyZer. On DCS-7280, DCS-7020, DCS-7500 and DCS-7800 series, it allows monitoring congestion and transmit latencies on both front panel and CPU ports.

Leaf Smart System Upgrade (SSU) provides the ability to upgrade the EOS image with minimal traffic disruption.Note: It is possible that SSU shutdown and bootup are not supported in the same image. If a product has shutdown support in image A and bootup support in a later image B, then SSU upgrade cannot be performed from image A to any images earlier than image B, including image A itself. However, upgrading from image A to image B onwards is allowed.

Maintenance mode is a framework to allow for the easy removal of elements of a switch or the entire switch from

Arista switches provide several mirroring features. Filtered mirroring to CPU adds a special destination to the mirroring features that allows the mirrored traffic to be sent to the switch supervisor. The traffic can then be monitored and analyzed locally without the need of a remote port analyzer. Use case of this feature is for debugging and troubleshooting purposes.

In an MLAG setup, routing on a switch (MLAG peer) is possible using its own bridge/system MAC, VARP MAC or VRRP MAC. When a peer receives an IP packet with destination MAC set to one of the aforementioned MACs, the packet gets routed if the hardware has enough information to route the packet. Before introducing this feature, if the destination MAC is peer’s bridge MAC, the packet is L2 bridged on the peer-link and the routing takes place on the peer. This behavior to use the peer-link to bridge the L3 traffic to the peer is undesirable especially when the MLAG peers can route the packets themselves.

MLAG currently checks for basic MLAG configuration to be consistent (e.g. domain id) before formation with the peer.

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.
