VRF Specifications
• The OmniSwitch can support a higher number of routes than what is documented in the
hardware routing limits. This is done by moving older unused routes into software and more
recent active routes into hardware. The total number of routes supported is dependent upon the
switch configuration and the total amount of memory available. Exceeding the maximum
hardware routes will result in some traffic being routed in software.

IP address lease allocation
mechanisms:
BootP
Static BootP:
IP address is allocated using the BootP configuration when the MAC
address of the client is defined.
DHCP
Static DHCP:
The network administrator assigns an IP address to the client. DHCP
conveys the address assigned by the DHCP server to the client.
Dynamic DHCP:
The DHCP server assigns an IP address to a client for a limited period of
time or until the client explicitly releases the address.

3 Advanced Routing
Configuration Specifications
This chapter provides Specifications tables for the following OmniSwitch features that are used to set up
and monitor advanced routing protocols for operation in a live network environment:
• Routing technologies.
– Open Shortest Path First (OSPF), version 2 and version 3.
– Intermediate System-to-Intermediate System (IS-IS).
– Border Gateway Protocol (BGP).
• Multicast routing protocols.
–
–
–
–
Multicast boundaries that are used to confine scoped multicast addresses to a specific domain.
Distance Vector Multicast Routing Protocol (DVMRP)
Protocol-Independent Multicast (PIM)
Multicast Border Router (MBR) functionality as defined in the PIM-SM specification (RFC 4601)
Note: The OmniSwitch can support a higher number of routes than what is documented in the protocol
routing tables. The values documented are based on typical scenarios and validated during the AOS test
phase. The total number of routes supported is dependent upon the switch configuration and the total
amount of memory available.
For information about how to configure advanced routing protocols, refer to the OmniSwitch AOS Release
8 Advanced Routing Configuration Guide.
In This Chapter
This chapter contains the following Advanced Routing Specifications tables:
• “OSPF Specifications” on page 3-2.
• “OSPFv3 Specifications” on page 3-3.

Data Center Switching
Specifications
The OmniSwitch implementation of data center switching capabilities helps enterprises address the
challenges and ongoing transformation of data center networks. This chapter provides Specifications tables
for the following OmniSwitch data center switching applications:
• Data Center Bridging (DCB) protocols to convert Ethernet into a lossless transport to support a reliable
storage area network fabric within the data center mesh.
• Shortest Path Bridging MAC (SPBM), including SPBM support of Provider Backbone Bridging (PBB)
encapsulation and services.
• Virtual eXtensible Local Area Network (VXLAN) to transparently extend Layer 2 networks over a
Layer 3 infrastructure.
• VXLAN Snooping to detect and identify VXLAN traffic on the network.
• Fibre Channel over Ethernet (FCoE) Initialization Protocol (FIP) snooping to ensure the security of an
FCoE network.
• FCoE/FC gateway functionality to converge FC over Ethernet and FC-to-FC over Ethernet through an
OmniSwitch gateway.
• Edge Virtual Bridging (EVB) for managing virtual machines created and managed on servers also
running the EVB protocol..
Note. The maximum limit values provided in the Specifications tables included in this chapter are subject
to available system resources.
