  • 1.  Using the SSR on the NFX Platform

    Posted 09-29-2022 11:48
    Hello Everyone,

    I was wondering if anyone has any example configurations for NFX-350 boxes that they have used to implement the SSR routers and conductors. I'm struggling to find any documentation on how Juniper suggests the SSR software be integrated onto the NFX hardware and VNFs.

    Thanks!

    Hi,

    I have installed couple of SSRs on NFX platforms specifically NFX150 and here are my quick notes (I assume NFX350 is similar):

    set system root-authentication plain-text-password
    delete security
    delete protocols
    delete interfaces
    delete vmhost
    delete access

    set system services ssh root-login allow
    set system services ssh
    set interfaces fxp0.0 family inet dhcp
    exit
    request vmhost mode compute

    set system memory hugepages page-size 1024 page-count 16

    set virtual-network-functions ssr no-default-interfaces
    set virtual-network-functions ssr interfaces eth0 management out-of-band
    set virtual-network-functions ssr interfaces eth1 mapping interface heth-0-0 virtual-function
    set virtual-network-functions ssr interfaces eth2 mapping interface heth-0-1 virtual-function
    set virtual-network-functions ssr interfaces eth3 mapping interface heth-0-2 virtual-function
    set virtual-network-functions ssr interfaces eth4 mapping interface heth-0-3 virtual-function
    set virtual-network-functions ssr image /var/public/JuniperSSR-v515.qcow2
    set virtual-network-functions ssr image image-type qcow2
    set virtual-network-functions ssr virtual-cpu count 4
    set virtual-network-functions ssr virtual-cpu features hardware-virtualization
    set virtual-network-functions ssr memory size 8388608
    set virtual-network-functions ssr virtual-cpu 0 physical-cpu 4
    set virtual-network-functions ssr virtual-cpu 1 physical-cpu 5
    set virtual-network-functions ssr virtual-cpu 2 physical-cpu 6
    set virtual-network-functions ssr virtual-cpu 3 physical-cpu 7
    set virtual-network-functions ssr memory features hugepages

    This config uses SR-IOV mapping of the Ethernet interfaces which gives maximum throughput on the interface.

    Hope it helps - if you still need some help please post it here.

    Cheers,
    Ivan
