Monday May 6th at 11am PDT after the current 10 Day R&S CCIE Bootcamp here in Bellevue has concluded, I’ll be holding the second part of the PfR vSeminar. This second part will cover PfR in newer IOS versions. In particular I’ll be using the same topology but with a mixture of ISR G2′s, ASR1001′s and CSR1000v’s. The ISR G2′s are running 15.3T, the ASR1001′s are running 3.9S and the CSR1000v’s are also running 3.9S. Additionally I have two of the new 3850′s in my topology. They won’t be providing anything other than L2 switching for this vSeminar but if there is enough interest I can do 1 or 2 hour short vSeminar covering them. These are really nice switches and we’re starting to replace our current switches with them.

I’ll be making another post tomorrow in regards to doing another vSeminar the same week (May 6th week) before I head to my 10 Day R&S CCIE Bootcamp and 5 Day R&S CCIE Troubleshooting Bootcamp in San Jose, CA. I’m considering doing the vSeminar on IPv4 multicast, MPLS L3 VPNs or a full scale troubleshooting lab breakdown. If anyone has any ideas or preferences for a topic let me know.

Below is the topology that I will be using for tomorrow’s PfR vSeminar. This should work on just about any rack setup as I only used one Ethernet interface on each router. Additionally all of the switches are acting as the hosts (SW1 Host A, SW2 Host B, etc).

PfR Topology

The initial configurations are available in the rack control panel for the R&S rental racks (PfR vSeminar Initial Configs) and available below. R1 and R2 are the “external” routers and they are running BGP with each other as later in the vSeminar they will peer with R4 and R5 via eBGP. R4 and R5 have static default routes and are originating a default into OSPF with R5′s default having a lower cost making R5 the primary egress router to reach the external networks. Also at the bottom is basic ping script you can use to test your initial configurations.

This Sunday (21st April) I’m going to be doing a free 8 hour vSeminar covering Performance Routing (PfR) starting at 10am PDT. To sign up go here.

I will start off with an introduction to PfR. Then I will cover the basics of PfR. Next I will cover advanced PfR configuration along with troubleshooting. The session will start off using 12.4(15)T to cover the basics and around the second break I will switch the IOS to 15.1T and lastly switch over to IOS XE 3.9 using the CSR1000v. I will cover how PfR is used in production and how PfR can be used in your network today.

A standard topology will be followed throughout the session and all of the scenario configurations, diagrams, etc will be available after the session for you to either do on your own rack or our rental racks. I’ll publish the topology on Friday in the event you want to follow along with the live session. I’ve structured this session differently in that when the recordings are released you’ll be able to follow along with the videos which I think is key to learning a technology like this.

The previous session that I did covering PfR will be replaced with this session. The new session will be available for download on the 25th of April. This PfR session will be better than my previous PfR session but the jokes maybe the same.

Lastly this vSeminar is a great chance for everyone to see the style of bootcamps we run here at INE if you are looking for a training solution.

Here is the link to the PfR/OER videos as promised.

This recording was taken during my 10 Day R&S Bootcamp here in our new Bellevue, WA classroom so if you ever wondered what one of my bootcamps were like, now you’ll know ;-) I did keep the jokes down since it was streamed live and being recorded. Also here is a picture of the bootcamp from the last day. A couple students had early flights and missed the picture but the gentleman on my right was the Bing employee that I was referring to in a couple of the jokes. Hopefully he’ll now be infamous ;-)

If anyone has any other topics they would like to see covered let me know. I want to do a session next week on how to prepare for the R&S CCIE Lab but I could also do an additional technical topic. Let me know what you all would like to see: IOS QoS, Layer 2 QoS, ZFW, Multicast Troubleshooting, MPLS VPN Troubleshooting, etc. I could take a lab from the new R&S CCIE Troubleshooting Bootcamp and walk through it. Here are a couple of the topologies we are using: Link
