MLX-16 Version 5.2.0.c Local policy route

How do I create a local policy route so that packets generated by the router are policy router to a desired next hop destination? Local traffic generated by the router is not normaly policy routed.

Hi jhmaest,

I believe the Policy-Based Routing section of the Netiron Configuration guide may help in what you are trying to achieve

Below is a link to the current (5.5.0c) documentation:

http://www.brocade.com/downloads/documents/html_product_manuals/NI_05500c_ROUTING/wwhelp/wwhimpl/js/html/wwhelp.htm#href=PBR.07.1.html

Policy-Based Routing (PBR) allows you to use ACLs and route maps to selectively modify and route

IP packets in hardware. The ACLs classify the traffic. Route maps that match on the ACLs set

routing attributes for the traffic.

A PBR policy specifies the next hop for traffic that matches the policy. Using standard ACLs with

PBR, you can route IP packets based on their source IP address. With extended ACLs, you can route

IP packets based on all of the match criteria in the extended ACL.

You can configure the Brocade device to perform the following types of PBR based on a packet’s

Layer 3 and Layer 4 information:

• Select the next-hop gateway.

• Send the packet to the null interface (null0).
