INTERNET DRAFT      IGMP Reports Aggregation in EVPN      March 27, 2017


1  Introduction

   Ethernet Virtual Private Network (EVPN) solution [RFC 7432] is
   becoming pervasive in data center (DC) applications for Network
   Virtualization Overlay (NVO) and DC interconnect (DCI) services, and
   in service provider (SP) applications for next generation virtual
   private LAN services.

   In DC applications, a POD can consist of a collection of servers
   supported by several TOR and Spine switches. This collection of
   servers and switches are self contained and may have their own
   control protocol for intra-POD communication and orchestration.
   However, EVPN is used as way of standard inter-POD communication for
   both intra-DC and inter-DC. A subnet can span across multiple PODs
   and DCs. EVPN provides robust multi-tenant solution with extensive
   multi-homing capabilities to stretch a subnet (e.g., VLAN) across
   multiple PODs and DCs. There can be many hosts/VMs (e.g., several
   hundreds) attached to a subnet that is stretched across several PODs
   and DCs.

   These hosts/VMs express their interests in multicast groups on a
   given subnet/VLAN by sending IGMP membership reports (Joins) for
   their interested multicast group(s). Furthermore, an IGMP router
   (e.g., IGMPv1) periodically sends membership queries to find out if
   there are hosts on that subnet still interested in receiving
   multicast traffic for that group. The IGMP/MLD Proxy solution
   described in this draft has three objectives to accomplish:

   1) Just like ARP/ND suppression mechanism in EVPN to reduce the
   flooding of ARP messages over EVPN, it is also desired to have a
   mechanism to reduce the flood of IGMP messages (both Queries and
   Reports) in EVPN.

   2) If there is no physical/virtual multicast router attached to the
   EVPN network for a given (*,G) or (S,G), it is desired for the EVPN
   network to act as a distributed anycast multicast router for all the
   hosts attached to that subnet.

   3) To forward multicast traffic efficiently over EVPN network such
   that it only gets forwarded to the PEs that have interest in the
   multicast group(s) - i.e., multicast traffic will not be forwarded to
   the PEs that have no receivers attached to them for that multicast
   group. This draft shows how the above objectives are achieved.

   The first two objectives are achieved by using IGMP/MLD proxy on the
   PE and the third objective is achieved by setting up a multicast
   tunnel (ingress replication or P2MP) only among the PEs that have
   interest in that multicast group(s) based on the trigger from

INTERNET DRAFT      IGMP Reports Aggregation in EVPN      March 27, 2017


   IGMP/MLD proxy processes. The proposed solutions for each of these
   objectives are discussed in the following sections.


1.1  Terminology

   The key words "MUST", "MUST NOT", "REQUIRED", "SHALL", "SHALL NOT",
   "SHOULD", "SHOULD NOT", "RECOMMENDED", "MAY", and "OPTIONAL" in this
   document are to be interpreted as described in RFC 2119 [KEYWORDS].


2  IGMP Proxy

   IGMP Proxy mechanism is used to reduce the flooding of IGMP messages
   over EVPN network similar to ARP proxy used in reducing the flooding
   of ARP messages over EVPN. It also provides triggering mechanism for
   the PEs to setup their underlay multicast tunnels. IGMP Proxy
   mechanism consist of two components: a) Proxy for IGMP Reports and b)
   Proxy for IGMP Queries.

2.1  Proxy Reporting

   When IGMP protocol is used between host/VMs and its first hop EVPN
   router (EVPN PE), Proxy-reporting is used by the EVPN PE to summarize
   (when possible) reports received from downstream hosts and propagate
   it in BGP to other PEs that are interested in the info. This is done
   by terminating IGMP Reports in the first hop PE, translating and
   exchanging the relevant information among EVPN BGP speakers. The
   information is again translated back to IGMP message at the recipient
   EVPN speaker. Thus it helps create an IGMP overlay subnet using BGP.
   In order to facilitate such an overlay, this document also defines a
   new EVPN route type NLRI (EVPN Selective Multicast Ethernet Tag
   route) along with its procedures to help exchange and register IGMP
   multicast groups [section 5].

2.1.1  IGMP Membership Report Advertisement in BGP

   When a PE wants to advertise an IGMP membership report (Join) using
   the BGP EVPN route, it follows the following rules:

   1) When the first hop PE receives several IGMP membership reports
   (Joins) , belonging to the same IGMP version, from different attached
   hosts/VMs for the same (*,G) or (S,G), it only sends a single BGP
   message corresponding to the very first IGMP Join. This is because
   BGP is a statefull protocol and no further transmission of the same
   report is needed. If the IGMP Join is for (*,G), then multicast group
   address along with the corresponding version flag (v1, v2, or v3) are
   set. In case of IGMPv3, exclude flag also needs to be set to indicate



Sajassi et al.         Expires September 27, 2017               [Page 5]


INTERNET DRAFT      IGMP Reports Aggregation in EVPN      March 27, 2017


   that no source IP address to be excluded (e.g., include all sources
   "*"). If the IGMP Join is for (S,G), then besides setting multicast
   group address along with the version flag v3, the source IP address
   and the include/exclude flag must be set. It should be noted that
   when advertising the EVPN route for (S,G), the only valid version
   flag is v3 (i.e., v1 and v2 flags must be set to zero).


   2) When the first hop PE receives an IGMPv3 Join for (S,G), then the
   PE checks to see if the source (S) is attached to self. If so, it
   does not send the corresponding BGP EVPN route advertisement.

   3) When the first hop PE receives an IGMP version-X Join first for
   (*,G) and then later it receives an IGMP version-Y Join for the same
   (*,G), then it will readvertise the same EVPN Selective Multicast
   route with flag for version-Y set in addition to any previously-set
   version flag(s). In other words, the first hop PE does not withdraw
   the EVPN route before sending the new route because the flag field is
   not part of BGP route key processing.

   4) When the first hop PE receives an IGMP version-X Join first for
   (*,G) and then later it receives an IGMPv3 Join for the same
   multicast group address but for a specific source address S, then the
   PE will advertise a new EVPN Selective Multicast route with v3 flag
   set (and v1 and v2 reset). Include/exclude flag also need to be set
   accordingly. Since source IP address is used as part of BGP route key
   processing, it is considered as a new BGP route advertisement.


   5) When a PE receives an EVPN Selective Multicast route with more
   than one version flag set, it will generate the corresponding IGMP
   report for (*,G) for each version specified in the flag field. With
   multiple version flags set, there should be no source IP address in
   the receive EVPN route. If there is, then an error should be logged.
   If v3 flag is set (in addition to v1 or v2), then the include/exclude
   flag needs to indicate "exclude". If not, then an error should be
   logged. The PE MUST generate an IGMP membership report (Join) for
   that (*,G) and each IGMP version in the version flag.


   6) When a PE receives a list of EVPN Selective Multicast NLRIs in its
   BGP update message, each with a different source IP address and the
   multicast group address, and the version flag is set to v3, then the
   PE generates an IGMPv3 membership report with a record corresponding
   to the list of source IP addresses and the group address along with
   the proper indication of inclusion/exclusion.

   7) Upon receiving EVPN Selective Multicast route(s) and before



Sajassi et al.         Expires September 27, 2017               [Page 6]


INTERNET DRAFT      IGMP Reports Aggregation in EVPN      March 27, 2017


   generating the corresponding IGMP Join(s), the PE checks to see
   whether it has any multicast router's AC(s) (Attachment Circuits
   connected to multicast routers). If it has router's ACs, then the
   generated IGMP Join(s) are sent to those ACs. If it doesn't have any
   router's AC, then no IGMP Join(s) needs to be generated because
   sending IGMP Joins to other hosts can result in unintentionally
   preventing a host from joining a specific multicast group for IGMPv1
   and IGMPv2 - i.e., if the PE does not receive a join from the host it
   will not forward multicast data to it. Per [RFC4541], when an IGMPv1
   or IGMPv2 host receives a membership report for a group address that
   it intends to join, the host will suppress its own membership report
   for the same group.  This message suppression is a requirement for
   IGMPv1 and IGMPv2 hosts. This is not a problem for hosts running
   IGMPv3 because there is no suppression of IGMP Membership reports.


2.1.1  IGMP Leave Group Advertisement in BGP

   When a PE wants to withdraw an EVPN Selective Multicast route
   corresponding to an IGMPv2 Leave Group (Leave) or IGMPv3 "Leave"
   equivalent message, it follows the following rules:

   1) For IGMPv1, there is no explicit membership leave; therefore, the
   PE needs to periodically send out an IGMP membership query to
   determine whether there is any host left who is interested in
   receiving traffic directed to this multicast group (this proxy query
   function will be described in more details in section 2.2). If there
   is no host left, then the PE re-advertises EVPN Selective Multicast
   route with the v1 version flag reset. If this is the last version
   flag to be reset, then instead of re-advertising the EVPN route with
   all version flags reset, the PE withdraws the EVPN route for that
   (*,G).

   2) When a PE receives an IGMPv2 Leave Group or its "Leave" equivalent
   message for IGMPv3 from its attached host, it checks to see if this
   host is the last host who is interested in this multicast group by
   sending a query for the multicast group. If the host was indeed the
   last one, then the PE re-advertises EVPN Selective Multicast route
   with the corresponding version flag reset. If this is the last
   version flag to be reset, then instead of re-advertising the EVPN
   route with all version flags reset, the PE withdraws the EVPN route
   for that (*,G).

   3) When a PE receives an EVPN Selective Multicast route for a given
   (*,G), it compares the received version flags from the route with its
   per-PE stored version flags. If the PE finds that a version flag
   associated with the (*,G) for the remote PE is reset, then the PE
   generates IGMP Leave for that (*,G) toward its local interface (if



Sajassi et al.         Expires September 27, 2017               [Page 7]


INTERNET DRAFT      IGMP Reports Aggregation in EVPN      March 27, 2017


   any) attached to the multicast router for that multicast group. It
   should be noted that the received EVPN route should at least have one
   version flag set. If all version flags are reset, it is an error
   because the PE should have received an EVPN route withdraw for the
   last version flag. If the PE receives an EVPN Selective Multicast
   route withdraw, then it must remove the remote PE from the OIF list
   associated with that multicast group.

   4) When a PE receives an EVPN Selective Multicast route withdraw, it
   removes the remote PE from its OIF list for that multicast group and
   if there are no more OIF entries for that multicast group (either
   locally or remotely), then the PE MUST stop responding to queries
   from the locally attached router (if any). If there is a source for
   that multicast group, the PE stops sending multicast traffic for that
   source.


2.2  Proxy Querier

   As mentioned in the previous sections, each PE need to have proxy
   querier functionality for the following reasons:

   1) To enable the collection of EVPN PEs providing L2VPN service to
   act as distributed multicast router with Anycast IP address for all
   attached hosts/VMs in that subnet.

   2) To enable suppression of IGMP membership reports and queries over
   MPLS/IP core.

   3) To enable generation of query messages locally to their attached
   host. In case of IGMPv1, the PE needs to send out an IGMP membership
   query to verify that at least one host on the subnet is still
   interested in receiving traffic directed to that group. When there is
   no reply to three consecutive IGMP membership queries, the PE times
   out the group, stops forwarding multicast traffic to the attached
   hosts for that (*,G), and sends a EVPN Selective Multicast route
   associated with that (*,G) with the version-1 flag reset or withdraws
   that route.


3 Operation

   Consider the EVPN network of figure-1, where there is an EVPN
   instance configured across the PEs shown in this figure (namely PE1,
   PE2, and PE3). Lets consider that this EVPN instance consist of a
   single bridge domain (single subnet) with all the hosts, sources and
   the multicast router shown in this figure connected to this subnet.
   PE1 only has hosts connected to it. PE2 has a mix of hosts and

   multicast source. PE3 has a mix of hosts, multicast source, and
   multicast router. Further more, lets consider that for (S1,G1), R1 is
   used as the multicast router but for (S2, G2), distributed multicast
   router with Anycast IP address is used. The following subsections
   describe the IGMP proxy operation in different PEs with regard to
   whether the locally attached devices for that subnet are:

        - only hosts/VMs
        - mix of hosts/VMs and multicast source
        - mix of hosts/VMs, multicast source, and multicast router

   Figure 1:

3.1 PE with only attached hosts/VMs for a given subnet

   When PE1 receives an IGMPv1 Join Report from H1, it does not forward
   this join to any of its other ports (for this subnet) because all
   these local ports are associated with the hosts/VMs. PE1 sends an
   EVPN Multicast Group route corresponding to this join for (*,G1) and
   setting v1 flag. This EVPN route is received by PE2 and PE3 that are
   the member of the same EVI. PE3 reconstructs IGMPv1 Join Report from
   this EVPN BGP route and only sends it to the port(s) with multicast
   routers attached to it (for that subnet). In this example, PE3 sends
   the reconstructed IGMPv1 Join Report for (*,G1) to only R1.
   Furthermore, PE2 although receives the EVPN BGP route, it does not

INTERNET DRAFT      IGMP Reports Aggregation in EVPN      March 27, 2017


   send it to any of its port for that subnet - namely ports associated
   with H6 and H7.

   When PE1 receives the second IGMPv1 Join from H2 for the same
   multicast group (*,G1), it only adds that port to its OIF list but it
   doesn't send any EVPN BGP route because there is no change in
   information. However, when it receives the IGMPv2 Join from H3 for
   the same (*,G1), besides adding the corresponding port to its OIF
   list, it re-advertises the previously sent EVPN Selective Multicast
   route with the version-2 flag set.

   Finally when PE1 receives the IMGMPv3 Join from H4 for (S2,G2), it
   advertises a new EVPN Selective Multicast route corresponding to it.



3.2 PE with mixed of attached hosts/VMs and multicast source

   The main difference in here is that when PE2 receives IGMPv3 Join
   from H7 for (S2,G2), it does not advertises it in BGP because PE2
   knows that S2 is attached to its local AC. PE2 adds the port
   associated with H7 to its OIF list for (S2,G2). The processing for
   IGMPv2 received from H6 is the same as the v2 Join described in
   previous section.

3.3 PE with mixed of attached hosts/VMs, multicast source and router

   The main difference in here relative to the previous two sections is
   that Join messages received locally needs to be sent to the port
   associated with router R1. Furthermore, the Joins received via BGP
   need to be passed to the R1 port but filtered for all other ports.


4 All-Active Multi-Homing

   Because a CE's LAG flow hashing algorithm is unknown, in an All-
   Active redundancy mode it must be assumed that the CE can send a
   given IGMP message to any one of the multi-homed PEs, either DF or
   non-DF - i.e., different IGMP Join messages can arrive at different
   PEs in the redundancy group and furthermore their corresponding Leave
   messages can arrive at PEs that are different from the ones received
   the Join messages.  Therefore, all PEs attached to a given ES must
   coordinate IGMP Join and Leave Group (x, G) state, where x may be
   either '*' or a particular source S, for each [EVI, broadcast domain
   (BD)] on that ES. This allows the DF for that [ES, EVI, BD] to
   correctly advertise or withdraw a Selective Multicast Ethernet Tag
   (SMET) route for that (x, G) group in that [EVI, BD] when needed.

   All-Active multihoming PEs for a given ES MUST support IGMP synch
   procedures described in this section if they want to perform IGMP
   proxy for hosts connects to that ES.

4.1 Local IGMP Join Synchronization

   When a PE, either DF or non-DF, receives, on a given multihomed ES
   operating in All-Active redundancy mode, an IGMP Membership Report
   for (x, G), it determines the [EVI, BD] to which the IGMP Membership
   Report belongs. If the PE doesn't already have local IGMP Join (x, G)
   state for that [EVI, BD] on that ES, it instantiates local IGMP Join
   (x, G) state and advertises a BGP IGMP Join Synch route for that [ES,
   EVI, BD]. Local IGMP Join (x, G) state refers to IGMP Join (x, G)
   state that is created as the result of processing an IGMP Membership
   Report for (x, G).

   The IGMP Join Synch route carries the ES-Import RT for the ES on
   which the IGMP Membership Report was received.  Thus it may only go
   to the PEs attached to that ES (and not any other PEs).

   When a PE, either DF or non-DF, receives an IGMP Join Synch route it
   installs that route and if it doesn't already have IGMP Join (x, G)
   state for that [ES, EVI, BD], it instantiates that IGMP Join (x,G)
   state - i.e., IGMP Join (x, G) state is the union of local IGMP Join
   (x, G) state and installed IGMP Join Synch route. If the DF is not
   currently advertising (originating) a SMET route for that (x, G)
   group in that [EVI, BD], it does so now.

   When a PE, either DF or non-DF, deletes its local IGMP Join (x, G)
   state for that [ES, EVI, BD], it withdraws its BGP IGMP Join Synch
   route for that [ES, EVI, BD].

   When a PE, either DF or non-DF, receives the withdrawal of an IGMP
   Join Synch route from another PE it removes that route.  When a PE
   has no local IGMP Join (x, G) state and it has no installed IGMP Join
   Synch routes, it removes IGMP Join (x, G) state for that [ES, EVI,
   BD].  If the DF no longer has IGMP Join (x, G) state for that [EVI,
   BD] on any ES for which it is DF, it withdraws its SMET route for
   that (x, G) group in that [EVI, BD].

   I.e., A PE advertises an SMET route for that (x, G) group in that
   [EVI, BD] when it has IGMP Join (x, G) state in that [EVI, BD] on at
   least one ES for which it is DF and it withdraws that SMET route when
   it does not have IGMP Join (x, G) state in that [EVI, BD] on any ES
   for which it is DF.

4.2 Local IGMP Leave Group Synchronization

   When a PE, either DF or non-DF, receives, on a given multihomed ES
   operating in All-Active redundancy mode, an IGMP Leave Group message
   for (x, G) from the attached CE, it determines the [EVI, BD] to which
   the IGMPv2 Leave Group belongs.  Regardless of whether it has IGMP
   Join (x, G) state for that [ES, EVI, BD], it initiates the (x, G)
   leave group synchronization procedure, which consists of the
   following steps:

   1) It computes the Maximum Response Time, which is the duration of
   (x, G) leave group synchronization procedure.  This is the product of
   two locally configured values, Last Member Query Count and Last
   Member Query Interval (described in Section 3 of [RFC2236]), plus
   delta, the time it takes for a BGP advertisement to propagate between
   the PEs attached to the multihomed ES (delta is a consistently
   configured value on all PEs attached to the multihomed ES).

   2) It starts the Maximum Response Time timer. Note that the receipt
   of subsequent IGMP Leave Group messages or BGP Leave Synch routes for
   (x, G) do not change the value of a currently running Maximum
   Response Time timer and are ignored by the PE.

   3) It initiates the Last Member Query procedure described in Section
   3 of [RFC2236]; viz, it sends a number of Group-Specific Query (x, G)
   messages (Last Member Query Count) at a fixed interval (Last Member
   Query Interval) to the attached CE.

   4) It advertises an IGMP Leave Synch route for that that [ES, EVI,
   BD]. This route notifies the other multihomed PEs attached to the
   given multihomed ES that it has initiated an (x, G) leave group
   synchronization procedure; i.e., it carries the ES-Import RT for the
   ES on which the IGMP Leave Group was received.  It also contains the
   Maximum Response Time and the Leave Group Synchronization Procedure
   Sequence number. The latter identifies the specific (x, G) leave
   group synchronization procedure initiated by the advertising PE,
   which increments the value whenever it initiates a procedure.

   5) When the Maximum Response Timer expires, the PE that has
   advertised the IGMP Leave Synch route withdraws it.


4.2.1 Remote Leave Group Synchronization

   When a PE, either DF or non-DF, receives an IGMP Leave Synch route it
   installs that route and it starts a timer for (x, G) on the specified
   [ES, EVI, BD] whose value is set to the Maximum Response Time in the
   received IGMP Leave Synch route.  Note that the receipt of subsequent
   IGMPv2 Leave Group messages or BGP Leave Synch routes for (x, G) do
   not change the value of a currently running Maximum Response Time

   timer and are ignored by the PE.

4.2.2 Common Leave Group Synchronization

   If a PE attached to the multihomed ES receives an IGMP Membership
   Report for (x, G) before the Maximum Response Time timer expires, it
   advertises a BGP IGMP Join Synch route for that [ES, EVI, BD]. If it
   doesn't already have local IGMP Join (x, G) state for that [ES, EVI,
   BD], it instantiates local IGMP Join (x, G) state. If the DF is not
   currently advertising (originating) a SMET route for that (x, G)
   group in that [EVI, BD], it does so now.

   If a PE attached to the multihomed ES receives an IGMP Join Synch
   route for (x, G) before the Maximum Response Time timer expires, it
   installs that route and if it doesn't already have IGMP Join (x, G)
   state for that [EVI, BD] on that ES, it instantiates that IGMP Join
   (x,G) state. If the DF is not currently advertising (originating) a
   SMET route for that (x, G) group in that [EVI, BD], it does so now.

   When the Maximum Response Timer expires a PE that has advertised an
   IGMP Leave Synch route, withdraws it.  Any PE attached to the
   multihomed ES, that started the Maximum Response Time and has no
   local IGMP Join (x, G) state and no installed IGMP Join Synch routes,
   it removes IGMP Join (x, G) state for that [ES, EVI, BD].  If the DF
   no longer has IGMP Join (x, G) state for that [EVI, BD] on any ES for
   which it is DF, it withdraws its SMET route for that (x, G) group in
   that [EVI, BD].

5 Single-Active Multi-Homing

   Note that to facilitate state synchronization after failover, the PEs
   attached to a multihomed ES operating in Single-Active redundancy
   mode should also coordinate IGMP Join (x, G) state.  In this case all
   IGMP Join messages are received by the DF and distributed to the non-
   DF PEs using the procedures described above.


6 Discovery of Selective P-Tunnel Types

   To allow an ingress PE that supports IGMP proxy procedures and SMET
   route to properly assign a selective P-tunnel supported by the
   receiving PEs, the ingress PE needs to discovery the types of
   selective P-tunnels supported by the receiving PEs and select the
   preferred tunnel type among the ones that it has in common with the
   receiving PEs.

   In order to support such discovery mechanism, the Multicast Flags
   extended community defined in section 7.2 is used. Each PE that



Sajassi et al.         Expires September 27, 2017              [Page 13]


INTERNET DRAFT      IGMP Reports Aggregation in EVPN      March 27, 2017


   supports different types of P-tunnels, marks the corresponding bits
   and advertise this extended community along with its IMET route.
   Therefore, the ingress PE can discover types of P-tunnels supported
   by the receiving PEs. If the ingress PE does not receive this
   extended community along with an IMET route for a given EVI, it
   assumes the only P-tunnel type supported by the egress PE, is ingress
   replication.

   If besides ingress-replication P-tunnel type, there is no other P-
   tunnel types in common among the participant PEs for an EVI, then the
   ingress PE MUST use ingress-replication P-tunnel type.

   If besides ingress-replication P-tunnel type, there is one ore more
   P-tunnel types in common among the participant PEs for an EVI, then
   the ingress PE can choose the P-tunnel type that it prefers.

   If besides ingress-replication P-tunnel type, there is no other P-
   tunnel types in common among the participant PEs for an EVI, then the
   ingress PE MAY choose several different P-tunnel types where the
   union of them covers the tunnel types supported by the participant
   PEs for that EVI. This implies that the ingress PE replicates the
   multicast traffic into different P-tunnels - i.e., to replicate the
   multicast traffic onto P2MP mLDP P-tunnel and ingress-replication P-
   tunnel.


   If an ingress PE uses ingress replication, then for a given (x, G)
   group in a given [EVI, BD]:

   1)  It sends (x, G) traffic to the set of PEs not supporting IGMP
   Proxy.  This set consists of any PE that has advertised an Inclusive
   Multicast Tag route for the [EVI, BD] without the "IGMP Proxy
   Support" flag.

   2)  It sends (x, G) traffic to the set of PEs supporting IGMP Proxy
   and having listeners for that (x, G) group in that [EVI, BD].   This
   set consists of any PE that has advertised an Inclusive Multicast Tag
   route for the [EVI, BD] with the "IGMP Proxy Support" flag and that
   has advertised an SMET route for that (x, G) group in that [EVI, BD].

   If an ingress PE's Selective P-Tunnel for a given [EVI, BD] uses P2MP
   and all of the PEs in the [EVI, BD] support that tunnel type and
   IGMP, then for a given (x, G) group in a given [EVI, BD] it sends (x,
   G) traffic using the Selective P-Tunnel for that (x, G) group in that
   [EVI, BD].  This tunnel will include those PEs that have advertised
   an SMET route for that (x, G) group on that [EVI, BD] (for Selective
   P-tunnel) but it may include other PEs as well (for Aggregate
   Selective P-tunnel).

7 BGP Encoding

   This document defines three new BGP EVPN routes to carry IGMP
   membership reports. This route type is known as:


           + 6 -  Selective Multicast Ethernet Tag Route
           + 7 -  IGMP Join Synch Route
           + 8 - IGMP Leave Synch Route

   The detailed encoding and procedures for this route type is described
   in subsequent section.


7.1 Selective Multicast Ethernet Tag Route

   An Selective Multicast Ethernet Tag route type specific EVPN NLRI
   consists of the following:

                   +---------------------------------------+


   For the purpose of BGP route key processing, all the fields are
   considered to be part of the prefix in the NLRI except for the one-
   octet optional flag field (if included). The Flags fields are defined
   as follows:

   The least significant bit, bit 7 indicates support for IGMP version
   1.

   The second least significant bit, bit 6 indicates support for IGMP
   version 2.

   The third least significant bit, bit 5 indicates support for IGMP
   version 3.

   The forth least significant bit, bit 4 indicates whether the (S, G)
   information carried within the route-type is of Include Group type
   (bit value 0) or an Exclude Group type (bit value 1). The Exclude
   Group type bit MUST be ignored if bit 5 is not set.

   This EVPN route type is used to carry tenant IGMP multicast group
   information. The flag field assists in distributing IGMP membership
   interest of a given host/VM for a given multicast route. The version
   bits help associate IGMP version of receivers participating within
   the EVPN domain.

   The include/exclude bit helps in creating filters for a given
   multicast route.



7.1.1 Constructing the Selective Multicast route

   This section describes the procedures used to construct the Selective
   Multicast route. Support for this route type is optional.

   The Route Distinguisher (RD) SHOULD be a Type 1 RD [RFC4364].  The
   value field comprises an IP address of the PE (typically, the
   loopback address) followed by a number unique to the PE.

   The Ethernet Tag ID MUST be set as follows:

   EVI is VLAN-Based or VLAN Bundle service - set to 0
   EVI is VLAN-Aware Bundle service without translation - set to
   the customer VID for the [EVI, BD]
   EVI is VLAN-Aware Bundle service with translation - set to the
   normalized Ethernet Tag ID for the [EVI, BD]

   The Multicast Source length MUST be set to length of multicast source
   address in bits. In case of a (*, G) Join, the Multicast Source
   Length is set to 0.

   The Multicast Source is the Source IP address of the IGMP membership
   report. In case of a (*, G) Join, this field does not exist.

   The Multicast Group length MUST be set to length of multicast group
   address in bits.

   The Multicast Group is the Group address of the IGMP membership
   report.

   The Originator Router Length is the length of the Originator Router
   address in bits.

   The Originator Router Address is the IP address of Router Originating
   the prefix. It should be noted that using the "Originating Router's
   IP address" field to get the PE IP address, needed for building
   multicast underlay tunnels, allows for inter-AS operations where BGP
   next hop can get over written.

   The Flags field indicates the version of IGMP protocol from which the
   membership report was received. It also indicates whether the
   multicast group had INCLUDE or EXCLUDE bit set.

   IGMP protocol is used to receive group membership information from
   hosts/VMs by TORs. Upon receiving the hosts/VMs expression of
   interest of a particular group membership, this information is then
   forwarded using Ethernet Multicast Source Group Route NLRI. The NLRI
   also keeps track of receiver's IGMP protocol version and any "source
   filtering" for a given group membership. All EVPN Selective Multicast
   Group routes are announced with per-EVI Route Target extended
   communities.


7.2  IGMP Join Synch Route

   This EVPN route type is used to coordinate IGMP Join (x,G) state for
   a given [EVI, BD] between the PEs attached to a given ES operating in
   All-Active (or Single-Active) redundancy mode and it consists of

   given multicast route.



7.2.1  Constructing the IGMP Join Synch Route

   This section describes the procedures used to construct the IGMP Join
   Synch route.  Support for this route type is optional. If a PE does
   not support this route, then it MUST not indicate that it supports
   'IGMP proxy' in Multicast Flag extended community for the EVIs
   corresponding to its multi-homed Ethernet Segments. An IGMP Join
   Synch route is advertised with an ES-Import Route Target extended
   community whose value is set to the ESI for the ES on which the IGMP
   Join was received.

   The Route Distinguisher (RD) SHOULD be a Type 1 RD [RFC4364].  The
   value field comprises an IP address of the PE (typically, the
   loopback address) followed by a number unique to the PE.

   The Ethernet Segment Identifier (ESI) MUST be set to the 10-octet
   value defined for the ES.

   The Ethernet Tag ID MUST be set as follows:

   EVI is VLAN-Based or VLAN Bundle service - set to 0
   EVI is VLAN-Aware Bundle service without translation - set to
   the customer VID for the [EVI, BD]
   EVI is VLAN-Aware Bundle service with translation - set to the
   normalized Ethernet Tag ID for the [EVI, BD]

   The Multicast Source length MUST be set to length of multicast source
   address in bits. In case of a (*, G) Join, the Multicast Source
   Length is set to 0.

   The Multicast Source is the Source IP address of the IGMP membership
   report.  In case of a (*, G) Join, this field does not exist.

   The Multicast Group length MUST be set to length of multicast group
   address in bits.

   The Multicast Group is the Group address of the IGMP membership
   report.

   The Originator Router Length is the length of the Originator Router
   address in bits.

   The Originator Router Address is the IP address of Router Originating
   the prefix.

   The least significant bit, bit 7 indicates support for IGMP version
   1.  The second least significant bit, bit 6 indicates support for
   IGMP version 2.     The third least significant bit, bit 5 indicates
   support for IGMP version 3.  The fourth least significant bit, bit 4
   indicates whether the (S, G) information carried within the route-
   type is of Include Group type (bit value 0) or an Exclude Group type
   (bit value 1). The Exclude Group type bit MUST be ignored if bit 5 is
   not set.

   The Flags field assists in distributing IGMP membership interest of a
   given host/VM for a given multicast route. The version bits help
   associate IGMP version of receivers participating within the EVPN
   domain.  The include/exclude bit helps in creating filters for a
   given multicast route.


7.3.1  Constructing the IGMP Leave Synch Route

   This section describes the procedures used to construct the IGMP Join
   Synch route.  Support for this route type is optional. If a PE does
   not support this route, then it MUST not indicate that it supports
   'IGMP proxy' in Multicast Flag extended community for the EVIs
   corresponding to its multi-homed Ethernet Segments. An IGMP Join
   Synch route is advertised with an ES-Import Route Target extended
   community whose value is set to the ESI for the ES on which the IGMP
   Join was received.

   The Route Distinguisher (RD) SHOULD be a Type 1 RD [RFC4364].  The
   value field comprises an IP address of the PE (typically, the
   loopback address) followed by a number unique to the PE.

   The Ethernet Segment Identifier (ESI) MUST be set to the 10-octet
   value defined for the ES.


   The Ethernet Tag ID MUST be set as follows:

   EVI is VLAN-Based or VLAN Bundle service - set to 0
   EVI is VLAN-Aware Bundle service without translation - set to
   the customer VID for the [EVI, BD]
   EVI is VLAN-Aware Bundle service with translation - set to the
   normalized Ethernet Tag ID for the [EVI, BD]

INTERNET DRAFT      IGMP Reports Aggregation in EVPN      March 27, 2017


   The Multicast Source length MUST be set to length of multicast source
   address in bits. In case of a (*, G) Join, the Multicast Source
   Length is set to 0.

   The Multicast Source is the Source IP address of the IGMP membership
   report.  In case of a (*, G) Join, this field does not exist.

   The Multicast Group length MUST be set to length of multicast group
   address in bits.

   The Multicast Group is the Group address of the IGMP membership
   report.

   The Originator Router Length is the length of the Originator Router
   address in bits.

   The Originator Router Address is the IP address of Router Originating
   the prefix.

   The Flags field indicates the version of IGMP protocol from which the
   membership report was received. It also indicates whether the
   multicast group had INCLUDE or EXCLUDE bit set.



7.4 Multicast Flags Extended Community

   The 'Multicast Flags' extended community is a new EVPN extended
   community.  EVPN extended communities are transitive extended
   communities with a Type field value of 6.  IANA will assign a Sub-
   Type from the 'EVPN Extended Community Sub-Types' registry.

   A PE that supports IGMP proxy on a given [EVI, BD] MUST attach this
   extended community to the  Inclusive Multicast Ethernet Tag (IMET)
   route it advertises for that [EVI, BD] and it Must set the IGMP Proxy
   Support flag to 1. Note that an [RFC7432] compliant PE will not
   advertise this extended community so its absence indicates that the
   advertising PE does not support IGMP Proxy.

   The advertisement of this extended community enables more efficient
   multicast tunnel setup from the source PE specially for ingress
   replication - i.e., if an egress PE supports IGMP proxy but doesn't
   have any interest in a given (x, G), it advertises its IGMP proxy
   capability using this extended community but it does not advertise
   any SMET route for that (x, G). When the source PE (ingress PE)
   receives such advertisements from the egress PE, it doesn't not
   replicate the multicast traffic to that egress PE; however, it does
   replicate the multicast traffic to the egress PEs that don't

INTERNET DRAFT      IGMP Reports Aggregation in EVPN      March 27, 2017


   advertise such capability even if they don't have any interests in
   that (x, G).

   A Multicast Flags extended community is encoded as an 8-octet value,
   as follows:


                         1                   2                   3
     0 1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 0 1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 0 1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 0 1
     +-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+
     | Type=0x06   |  Sub-Type=TBD |       Flags (2 Octets)        |
     +-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+
     |         Reserved=0          |      Tunnel Type              |
     +-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+


   The low-order bit of the Flags is defined as the "IGMP Proxy Support"
   bit.  A value of 1 means that the PE supports IGMP Proxy as defined
   in this document, and a value of 0 means that the PE does not support
   IGMP proxy. The absence of this extended community also means that
   the PE doesn not support IGMP proxy.

   Tunnel type field is a 2-octet field with the bits set according to
   the following:

   LSB = 1, indicates the support for RSVP-TE P2MP LSP
   2nd LSB = 1, indicates the support for P2MP LSP
   3rd LSB = 1, indicates the support for PIM-SSM
   4th LSB = 1, indicates the support for PIM-SM
   5th LSB = 1, indicates the support for BIDIR-PIM
   6th LSB = 1, indicates the support for mLDP MP2MP LSP


7.5 EVI-RT Extended Community

   The 'EVI-RT' extended community is a new EVPN extended community.
   EVPN extended communities are transitive extended communities with a
   Type field value of 6.  IANA will assign a Sub-Type from the 'EVPN
   Extended Community Sub-Types' registry.

   A PE that supports IGMP synch procedures for All-Active (or Single-
   Active) multi-homed ES, MUST attach this extended community to either
   IGMP Join Synch route (sec 7.2) or IGMP Leave Synch route (sec 7.3).
   This extended community carries the RT associated with the EVI so
   that the receiving PE can identify the EVI properly. The reason
   standard format RT is not used, is to avoid distribution of these
   routes beyond the group of multihoming PEs for that ES.
