  • MoM of today's OCP SONiC call  9/14/2021.

Topics discussed.
ECMP Overlay BFD support -  Prince / MSFT
  1. Does this feature support BUM traffic ? No - Since Vnet routes are based on unicast routes, it supports Unicast only.
  2. Does the feature support control plan BFD / FRR BFD ? No, this BFD offload to ASIC
  3. What is the motivation/use case endpoint monitor ip is different from the actual endpoint running BFD ?  The use case is - There are devices support  data vs control plane on different ports for monitor purpose
  4. Can the design support query ASIC BFD capabilities before writing  the BFD session ? could be possible, will add into the HLD
  5. Can the control plan & hardware offload BFD coexists on the same device ? yes/No -  Need to brainstorm complexity - Will split the HLD into two, one dedicated to BFD to describe all the scenarios.
  6. What are the default BFD timers used for offload ? WIll be included into HLD
  7. Is there any global session bfd table for default values? No
  8. Community suggested to have BFD into a separate HLD ? Ex: coexistence may cause issues, need to discuss more in details
  9. How about end user CLI to control BFD session either hardware offload or FRR BFD ? Next phase
  10. Do you have a BFD state db schema mapped to the Rfc BFD schema ? Will be included in HLD
  11. How do handle or notify BFD sessions from HW? 
  12. Is it possible to remove BFD routes from the ECMP group ? yes, vNetOrch

Topics discussed.
SHow Running Command Enhancement -  - EdgeCore/MaxChen
  1. What are the use cases of this feature ? Customers familiar with CISCO like CLI, goal is to make it more convenient or trivial to understand the current running command . 
  2. How does the design handle the maintainability of these improvements? 
  3. How does Yang show the running command ? 
  4. It looks like manual work, shouldn't it be duplicated to the sonic-mgmt-framework which is yang driven/auto generated? >> Not really!
  5. PR is out, please leave comments here - https://github.com/Azure/SONiC/pull/838
Routed Subinterfaces Enhancement -  Preetham/BRCM
  1. What are the use cases of shorter sub interface naming ? 
  2. Why does it required to bring in the short names? >> Kernel naming limited to 15.
  3. Where do you store the mapping short to long name child to parent ?
  4.  Suggestion - for consistency reason keep vlan interface mandate.
  5. Is this config change only for routed subinterfaces ? How do they differentiate ? 
  6. There must be a short name convention in SONiC already, is this design considered that? 
  7. Why can't this short vs long name conversion hide in intrfaceMgrD? >> it looks like the changes are widespread 
  8. PR is out for review - please leave comments here - https://github.com/Azure/SONiC/pull/833

SAG - Static Anycast Gateway - EdgeCore/MaxChen

  1. Is the SAG feature enabled by default? >> No, the feature is default disabled.
  2. Why do I need a knob for SAG? >> Please list down in HLD sections, is there any implications for taking care in data path handling of SAG vs macvlan interfaces.
  3. Unless it's absolutely necessary, it's not required to have a global knob. A global knob will introduce a lot of complexity and cases to handle. >> So is it necessary to have a knob for SAG?? can the gateway & ip address list can't be sufficient ? >> It seems to be true. 
  4. SagMgrD is not required when we plan to use SVI instead of maxvlan interfaces. 
  5. Is there my hardware resource limit on SAG interfaces ? can it be referred to in CRM?
  6. Please list down what are the complexities when SAG is enabled along with SVI/macvlan interfaces in data path routing?
  7. CLI SAG command can be part of interface command.

SRv6 HLD - Houdi from Alibaba + Intel
  • How did you arrive at this requirement ex: SRv6 sidList per Policy = 4 ? Is this specific to Alibaba deployment? 

  • How deep can transit nodes be ? Why is this limited to 3 in HLD? - Again, deployment specific - more headers results in SRH header compression.

  • How does the design support tying up the policy with routes? right now it supports policy tie up with prefixes. can be enhanced.

  • The workflow diagram is a little confusing, needs an update and should discuss it once again - pl focus on w.r.t ownership of the route data and who does what modifications + in terms of consumers/producers.

  • Alibaba/Intel will share the PR for review...

I would like to understand more about "Don't overload stateDB for events & alarms? It should be advised to use separate redis DB for events & alarms?"  comment. Appreciate some responses from the community. I hope I am using the right channel.

Eventd is planning to use stateDB to house event history table, alarm table and stats tables. They get updated every time an event/alarm is raised.
These tables are of fixed size: event history table size is customizable with maximum size being 40k or time limit of 30 days - at which time, eventd deletes older records. Stats table is of fixed size with a handful of records. Alarm table only contains a record when an alarm is raised and record is removed when the alarm is cleared.

How does stateDB gets overloaded? 
Madhu>> As the operational data stored in state db today, by adding events, alarms and stats (frequent data) into it makes state db easily out of limits. In addition to that a software (eventD open source)/design flaw makes it worse.  Unlike APP_DB, State DB is more read friendly, more writes/updates due to events/alarms/stats become performane issues? Btw, do you get a chance to estiamte on  state DB with new data / what is plan to mesure performance of state db with ne data writes?
 
Is it because of db writes? OR 40k for history table is too much in a DB? 
Madhu>> Today each redis instansce setup with multile redis db's ex: APP_DB, STATE_DB etc.. Not 100% sure REDIS memory limits and how does it set for each redis db  or any redis profile?? MSFT team can help on this.
Using serparate redis DB means, I need to create a new redis instance and create a DB with that insance? OR create a DB off existing redis, redis2, redis3 instances? 
Madhu>>I'd suggest to use new redis db similar to state db ex: event db or altogether new redis instance (redis1, redis2 - ) ex: https://github.com/Azure/SONiC/blob/master/doc/database/multi_namespace_db_instances.md

SONiC Reproducible Build design - Xuhui
  • Shouldn't version control be significant overhead?  No - There is a version control file which will take care of dependencies
  • Where the version control file is located in the code repo? It is at Docker level right now.
  • For instance, If I want to bring a new Python package (it has dependencies) in the docker file it conflicts with the existing one. How to solve it ? You can disable the version check temporarily. 
  • Does version check framework check dependencies per branch ex: 200911 or 202006? Yes, the version check is  per branch to freeze the requirements
  • What stage do you freeze on the version? when you move from one debian version to another? We need to regenerate the version file
  • Does the build system automatically take care of pulling packages from local storage when the remote website is down ? yes
  • How does the framework support for golang libs and dependencies? Not right now, will be included.
  • How does version control framework integrate with existing rules file configurations? Do we maintain both version files?

 Enhancement to Optical transceiver model  -   Dell

  • Why did the design choose a plugin approach for Optical Transceivers?    Ans: extensible

  • Can it be solved using a common platform and if any vendor specific (minimal) make it extendable by different ways (ex: configurations/jinja templating/ plugin etc..)? An optical transceiver working group will be started soon.

  • SONiC configLet does similar job JSON Patch, can it be leverage code. Please refer https://github.com/Azure/sonic-utilities/blob/master/scripts/configlet 
  • Does the config replace uses SWSS SDK? yes
  • Feedback - this PR great,can be split into multiple PRs following reasons
    • Most sonic daemon are not designed to receive updates from config updates?
    • SYNC support at Table level vs Attribute level
    • It is good to have config replace contract [pre-replace-post] so that no feature will miss it?
    • Does the feature call out dependency graph on the config change events? 
  • How does sonic-mgmt-framework handles config replace feature today? 
  • How does the design validates JSON Patch? 
  • Does it support revert on config failures?

An even more serious question we need to answer for this FGNHG is that do we have the enforcement that kernel routing table would be consistent with FIB programming on ASICs. 
If this implementation is changing FIB but not reflecting back to kernel (i.e. routing stack), this will be the first case that violating the current model.

              PCI_E Diagnostics:

  • How does it help? the feature captures all the pci_e components in pcie.yaml config file and verify the components on demand.
  • How is different from lspci? the feature aggregates the lspci command info and capture components list in pcie.yaml file for component check 
  • When does the pcie.yaml generated? Platform shall generate the file when there is any change.
  • Is the feature generic for all the platforms ? yes, there is specific file for each platform and the platform owners should update it.
  • Can the feature distinguish critical/non critical PCI_e components? can this be included in the design ?

        • Drop Counters HLD  - MSFT
        Review (Q & A):
        • Does the design preserve the counters on warm reboots? No
        • Can the design reports the user if the drop counter is not supported with platforms? yes
        • List out the caveats with warm reboot cases. Ex: if the device went wrong after warm reboots, does the drop counters distinguish the failure reasons?
        • Do we have default settings for the debug counters with the device? No
        • Can the design provide any templates for the debug counters to configure it? 
        • Can the lifecycle (ex: clear)of these counters will not effect the existing counters? No
        • Can the design support logical/aggregate debug counters? 
        • Does these counters are ASIC independent? what platforms do you guys cover it?
        • Can this integrate with mgmt framework?

        Error Handling - BRCM

        Review (Q & A):
        • Overall framework is thinking about two approaches - 1) Introduce Opaque ID to track the add-delete-add kind of error handling scenarios 2) Introduce an Sync SAI API in addition to current Async SAI API.
        • HLD is out for the community review. https://github.com/Azure/SONiC/pull/391

          Review (Q & A):
          • Can't SONiC query SAI API to fetch the break out capabilities?
          • Generic question : Why breakout support only per interface? why can' t it per device ? Platform's don't allow certain ports due to silicon issues or the feature is not ready to use the breakout port on this relesase
          • Can the breakout feature supports range of ports together? 
          • Can ASIC vendors support breakout on range/group of ports?
          • What does platform vendors do to support this feature?  It seems vendors should provide platforms.ini file.
          • Can this feature support the list of breakout supported to the user? 
          • Can breakout feature enforce lanes and aliases to the sonic application?
          • Why can't we define platform files per HWSKU?  
          • Can this HLD covers Platform LED feature?
          • How about the configuration validations during port-breakout ? Can this integrate with MGMT framework CVL lib? yes.

            • Design decision behind creating an empty interface INTERFACE|Ethernet0:{} in config_db ? Multiple things, 1) SAI 2) Code complexity behind the resource migration. etc. There is a section in the PR,  feedback can be provided.
            • There is a request on VRF ID adding besides interface name in the next hop? The decision seems we are going with minimal configuration to support the SONiC system design.
            • Can we safely assume VRF design supports later versions of Linux Kernel 4.9? Yes.

            • Error Handling  - BRCM (Santhosh)
            Review (Q&A)
            We had a great discussion, there are lot of inputs from community and here is some. Feel free to add missing comments here.
            • How does framework supports multiple CRUD failures?  
            [Ben]: See below 
            • Do you provide a knob to switch off Error handling feature? Is knob necessary? 
            [Ben]: No knob is necessary. The error handling proposal is a framework that is available for a) implementation of error reporting in SWSS on a feature-by-feature basis and b) application processing of such errors. Both a) and b) are implementation choices that can be made on an feature-by-feature basis. And if an application does not want to process a supported error, then it can just ignore it. 
            • Does the applications get out of order notifications from feedback loop? How to handle in the case of it? Ex: User does create/delete/create and do you expect the error feedback come in order? 
            [Ben]: The specific comment was that the key/values used to refer to APP_DB (or other) in an ERROR_DB report may not be specific enough to distinguish between different error events. The example given (by Nikos) was a route add-withdraw-add case - since the APP_DB table entry may be the same between the 2 adds, then, if there's an error report, how does the application (FRR in this case) know which of the adds failed? We will come back on this point. 
            • What is the design decision behind a new Error DB? Why can't we merge error attributes into APP DB? 
            [Ben]: We thought about both options, and decided that the ERROR_DB gave a bit more flexibility and avoided changing existing application tables. It was not a clear decision, but we see no reason to move away from it. 
            • What is the mechanism to synchronize route CRUD between APP DB vs new Error DB? 
            [Ben]: See above 
            • Is new Error DB is a mirror of APP DB? 
            [Ben]: Not really - but each error table entry points to a corresponding entry in another table (usually APP_DB) 
            • The current design mentioned an approach to stop propagate the failed/error routes to the neighbors? This may not right as per RFC, the routes should propagate though the it failed due to some policy. (Nikos)
            [Ben]: This topic went beyond scope of the framework (#1 above) and into the BGP doc (#2). We will setup a separate offline discussion for this.
             
            Overall feedback - The feedback loop is necessary to address SAI fatal errors. However the community requested the design should dis associate/de couple the feedback loop  as much as possible so that applications have freedom to react/handle it own way.
            [Ben]: That's exactly how it's setup today. 
            one option suggested - Framework should more generic and should accommodate opaque error context for the applications. 
            [Ben]: This is a different topic - see above ("The specific comment was that the key/values ....")

            Xin will extend an offline discussion on this topic, stay tuned.

            ECMP Overlay BFD support - Prince / MSFT

            1. Does this feature support BUM traffic ? No - Since Vnet routes are based on unicast routes, it supports Unicast only.
            2. Does the feature support control plan BFD / FRR BFD ? No, this BFD offload to ASIC
            3. What is the motivation/use case endpoint monitor ip is different from the actual endpoint running BFD ? The use case is - There are devices support data vs control plane on different ports for monitor purpose
            4. Can the design support query ASIC BFD capabilities before writing the BFD session ? could be possible, will add into the HLD
            5. Can the control plan & hardware offload BFD coexists on the same device ? yes/No - Need to brainstorm complexity - Will split the HLD into two, one dedicated to BFD to describe all the scenarios.
            6. What are the default BFD timers used for offload ? WIll be included into HLD
            7. Is there any global session bfd table for default values? No
            8. Community suggested to have BFD into a separate HLD ? Ex: coexistence may cause issues, need to discuss more in details
            9. How about end user CLI to control BFD session either hardware offload or FRR BFD ? Next phase
            10. Do you have a BFD state db schema mapped to the Rfc BFD schema ? Will be included in HLD
            11. How do handle or notify BFD sessions from HW?
            12. Is it possible to remove BFD routes from the ECMP group ? yes, vNetOrch
            13. PR is out, please leave comments here - https://github.com/Azure/SONiC/pull/861/files

            SHow Running Command Enhancement - - EdgeCore/MaxChen

            1. What are the use cases of this feature ? Customers familiar with CISCO like CLI, goal is to make it more convenient or trivial to understand the current running command .
            2. How does the design handle the maintainability of these improvements?
            3. How does Yang show the running command ?
            4. It looks like manual work, shouldn't it be duplicated to the sonic-mgmt-framework which is yang driven/auto generated? >> Not really!
            5. PR is out, please leave comments here - https://github.com/Azure/SONiC/pull/838

            Routed Subinterfaces Enhancement - Preetham/BRCM

            1. What are the use cases of shorter sub interface naming ?
            2. Why does it required to bring in the short names? >> Kernel naming limited to 15.
            3. Where do you store the mapping short to long name child to parent ?
            4. Suggestion - for consistency reason keep vlan interface mandate.
            5. Is this config change only for routed subinterfaces ? How do they differentiate ?
            6. There must be a short name convention in SONiC already, is this design considered that?
            7. Why can't this short vs long name conversion hide in intrfaceMgrD? >> it looks like the changes are widespread

            SAG - Static Anycast Gateway - EdgeCore/MaxChen



            1. Is the SAG feature enabled by default? >> No, the feature is default disabled.
            2. Why do I need a knob for SAG? >> Please list down in HLD sections, is there any implications for taking care in data path handling of SAG vs macvlan interfaces.
            3. Unless it's absolutely necessary, it's not required to have a global knob. A global knob will introduce a lot of complexity and cases to handle. >> So is it necessary to have a knob for SAG?? can the gateway & ip address list can't be sufficient ? >> It seems to be true.
            4. SagMgrD is not required when we plan to use SVI instead of maxvlan interfaces.
            5. Is there my hardware resource limit on SAG interfaces ? can it be referred to in CRM?
            6. Please list down what are the complexities when SAG is enabled along with SVI/macvlan interfaces in data path routing?
            7. CLI SAG command can be part of interface command.

            PINS - P4 Integrated Network Stack - Google/Intel/ONF

            1. Why don't the design leverage the existing Error DB framework for feedback loop? >> It seems the PINS team is closely working on the Error framework team to address the gaps.
            2. Is this design different from FlexSAI ? Using PINS, you can model the entire SAI pipeline, not the case with FlexSAI
            3. What are the advantages of exposing the entire SAI pipeline using PINS? >>> we can do Fuzzing, Automation testing the entire pipeline being exposed.
            4. What kind of intelligence does the design provide to the applications in terms of network/application/resource errors? >> there is new HLD work in progress.
            5. What is the plan to support vendor SAI extensions? Can vendors SAI extension be added without recompiling libSAI? >> yes, HLD described it

            Eventd is planning to use stateDB to house event history table, alarm table and stats tables. They get updated every time an event/alarm is raised.

            These tables are of fixed size: event history table size is customizable with maximum size being 40k or time limit of 30 days - at which time, eventd deletes older records. Stats table is of fixed size with a handful of records. Alarm table only contains a record when an alarm is raised and record is removed when the alarm is cleared.



            How does stateDB gets overloaded?

            Madhu>> As the operational data stored in state db today, by adding events, alarms and stats (frequent data) into it makes state db easily out of limits. In addition to that a software (eventD open source)/design flaw makes it worse. Unlike APP_DB, State DB is more read friendly, more writes/updates due to events/alarms/stats become performane issues? Btw, do you get a chance to estiamte on state DB with new data / what is plan to mesure performance of state db with ne data writes?



            Is it because of db writes? OR 40k for history table is too much in a DB?

            Madhu>> Today each redis instansce setup with multile redis db's ex: APP_DB, STATE_DB etc.. Not 100% sure REDIS memory limits and how does it set for each redis db or any redis profile?? MSFT team can help on this.

            Using serparate redis DB means, I need to create a new redis instance and create a DB with that insance? OR create a DB off existing redis, redis2, redis3 instances?

            Madhu>>I'd suggest to use new redis db similar to state db ex: event db or altogether new redis instance (redis1, redis2 - ) ex: https://github.com/Azure/SONiC/blob/master/doc/database/multi_namespace_db_instances.md

            MACSec HLD - Ze Gan

            * What is the scope of HLD to support macsec ? Is this support limited to switch-switch or host-switch or both modes? (Is this static macSec or 802.1X)
            * How to configure a MacSec chip in case of a Real switch? Does this agnostic control plane or linux? Is there any special configuration needed to enable a macsec chip in Real Switch?
            * Do you have any data about interoperability between wpa_supplicants with other NOS's - Testing involved
            * Shouldn't be a perf impact if you run wpa_supplicants on individual interfaces?Should it run per switch global level?
            * Can macSec support per lag/port channel? Ans: macSec should program per port level.

            SONiC Reproducible Build design - Xuhui

            * Shouldn't version control be significant overhead? No - There is a version control file which will take care of dependencies
            * Where the version control file is located in the code repo? It is at Docker level right now.
            * For instance, If I want to bring a new Python package (it has dependencies) in the docker file it conflicts with the existing one. How to solve it ? You can disable the version check temporarily.
            * Does version check framework check dependencies per branch ex: 200911 or 202006? Yes, the version check is per branch to freeze the requirements
            * What stage do you freeze on the version? when you move from one debian version to another? We need to regenerate the version file
            * Does the build system automatically take care of pulling packages from local storage when the remote website is down ? yes
            * How does the framework support for golang libs and dependencies? Not right now, will be included.
            * How does version control framework integrate with existing rules file configurations? Do we maintain both version files?
            *

            Multi-ASIC design review - Hasan

            * Do you see any perf issues having several multiple processes running for multi-asic?
            * How to configure multi-asic ? >> There is a CLI planned.
            * Multi-ASIC ?? Does it support multi vendor integration ? ex: MLNX & BRCM etc.. >> No . Multi -ASIC same ASIC with different vendor implementations..
            * Do you have any scaling numbers ? No limit
            * What is your test topology? Is this a chassis based or pizza box solution ? >>> test platform - 6 ASICs , not a chassis based system. It's a pizza box setup.
            * How does this design handle warm-reboot? >> Not looked yet
            * Is this container run only with is only network namespaces alone? yes
            * There were two proposals on backend ASIC;'s BGP vs vlan-cross-connect ?? Which one should this design consider?
            * How does it handle Error handling when fabric is broken - Ex: one ASIC doesn't come >> There is no staging, all other ASIC's will come up except the failed ASIC
            * How does it assign the route mac to different ASIC?
            * Does this design support tunnelling ? - >> Not right now

            Here is the PR to provide feedback - https://github.com/Azure/SONiC/blob/2f320430c8199132c686c06b5431ab93a86fb98f/doc/multi_asic/SONiC_multi_asic_hld.md

            Enhancement to Optical transceiver model - Dell



            * Why did the design choose a plugin approach for Optical Transceivers? Ans: extensible
            * Community feedback:- Though plugin approach is elegant, many vendors have difficulty to implement and validate, it would be nice to solve this problem in a common platform (90% possible).
            * Can it be solved using a common platform and if any vendor specific (minimal) make it extendable by different ways (ex: configurations/jinja templating/ plugin etc..)? An optical transceiver working group will be started soon.
            * Can the design support DD memory map parsing ? Let's discuss in the working group what to solve in common platform and what else need to extend through plugin or other means

            * Are there any examples to understand how PDDF is different from classic/sonic platform API 1.0 ?
            * Did you try PDDF API's outside BRCM? Ans : yes ex: Quanta/Inventec / Accton etc.
            * Is the above PDDF implementation available publicly? Ans: It is OEM's decision to make it public.
            * Can PDDF manage MACSEC based components? Ans: No. MacSEC would be managed by SDK.

            An even more serious question we need to answer for this FGNHG is that do we have the enforcement that kernel routing table would be consistent with FIB programming on ASICs.

            If this implementation is changing FIB but not reflecting back to kernel (i.e. routing stack), this will be the first case that violating the current model.

            * Can shaping config support on sub interfaces/ port channels ? No
            * Do we have a plan to support vlan/port channel as many DC supports this use case?
            * Why do need SAI_SCHEDULER_GROUP_ATTR_SCHEDULAR_PROFILE_ID when SAI_QUEUE_SCHEDULAR_PROFILE_ID available ? Ans: schedular_group will help for finer granularity.
            * Do you have plan to publish spytest cases with feature? yes
            * How to configure these new shaping configuration? is this coexists with config_db? Ans : new shaping attributes supported through sonic-mgmt-framework open-config model
            * What are the shaping constraints w.r.t DPB (dynamic port breakout) ?
            * Can shaping applied to CPU queues? suggestion - CoPP is the right place to configure the CPU queues?
            * Can it be possible to configure shaping in percentage so that DPB can dynamically change the shaping per port?
            * Can this shaping applied on operation port (profile applied and under traffic) ? No CLI to configure that today
