Filtered Mirroring allows certain packets to be selected for mirroring, rather than all packets ingressing or egressing a particular port.

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

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

This feature introduces the hardware forwarding support for IPv4 over IPv4, GRE-Tunnel interfaces on Arista Switches. A GRE-Tunnel interface acts as a logical interface which performs the GRE encapsulation or decapsulation.

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.

This feature allows classification of packets on QoS policy-maps based on the Class of Service (CoS), VLAN, Drop Eligible Indicator (DEI) 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 tagged packet.

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

Storm control enables traffic policing on floods of packets on L2 switching networks. The documentation describes

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. 

This article describes the Tap Aggregation MPLS Pop feature. The purpose of this feature is to support tools that do not parse MPLS labels and therefore need the switch to remove (pop) the MPLS header.

As of EOS-4.25.2F some advanced Tap Aggregation features require the hardware forwarding profile to be set. On EOS-4.25.2F these features are MPLS Pop and 802.1br-E/VN Tag Stripping.

VLAN tagged MACsec refers to frames that have a VLAN tag between the MAC source address and the MACsec ethertype.  This VLAN tag is unencrypted (in the clear) so that intermediate devices between the MACsec endpoints can forward the MACsec frames based on this unencrypted VLAN tag.
