Input variables for eos_designs

This document describes the supported input variables for the role arista.avd.eos_designs.

Since several data models have changed between AVD versions 3.x and 4.x, it is recommended to study the Porting Guide for AVD 4.x.x for existing deployments.

The input variables are documented below in tables and YAML.

Note

All input variables are validated by a schema. If additional custom keys are desired, a key starting with an underscore _, will be ignored.

Warning

Available features and variables may vary by platforms, refer to documentation on arista.com for specifics.

Supported designs

eos_designs supports multiple options such as L3LS-EVPN with 3-stage or 5-stage, L2LS and MPLS. The sections below highlight these 3 topologies, but you can extend eos_designs to support your own topology by using node_type_keys to create your own node type.

Design type

By setting the design.type variable, the default node-types described in Node Type Variables will be used.

Variable Type Required Default Value Restrictions Description
design Dictionary
  type String l3ls-evpn Valid Values:
- l3ls-evpn
- mpls
- l2ls
By setting the design.type variable, the default node-types and templates described in these documents will be used.
design:

  # By setting the design.type variable, the default node-types and templates described in these documents will be used.
  type: <str; "l3ls-evpn" | "mpls" | "l2ls"; default="l3ls-evpn">

3-stage clos topology support (Leaf & Spine)

  • The eos_designs role support various deployments with layer 3 leaf and spine (3-stage Clos) and optionally, with dedicated overlay controllers.
  • 3 stage Clos fabric can be represented as spines, L3 leafs and L2 leafs, and also referred to as a “POD”.

See the following examples using the l3ls-evpn design:

5-stage clos topology support (Super Spine)

  • The eos_designs role support lager deployments with super-spines (5-stage Clos) and optionally, with dedicated overlay controllers.
  • 5 stage Clos fabric can be represented as multiple leaf-spine structures (called PODs - Point of Delivery) interconnected by super-spines.
  • The logic to deploy every leaf-spine POD fabric remains unchanged.
  • Super-spines can be deployed as a single plane (typically chassis switches) or multiple planes.

Layer 2 Leaf Spine

  • The eos_designs role support various deployments with layer 2 leaf and spine. For example, routing may terminate at the spine level or an external L3 device.
  • The Clos fabric can be represented as L3 spines, spines, and leafs.

See the following examples using the l2ls design:

MPLS

The eos_designs role with the mpls design type supports any arbitrary physical mesh topology by combining and interconnecting different node types with the core_interfaces settings.

The following underlay routing protocols are supported:

  • ISIS-SR (default)
  • ISIS + LDP
  • ISIS-SR + LDP
  • OSPF + LDP

The following overlay routing protocols are supported:

  • IBGP (default)

Any node group of 2 or more rr-routers will form a Route Reflector cluster.

The MPLS design supports most fabric topology variables already supported by l3ls-evpn, barring the exceptions outlined below:

  • Connectivity is defined with the core_interfaces settings instead of Node type uplink settings.
  • No MLAG support.
  • No VXLAN support.
  • EVPN overlay settings are set with mpls_overlay_role and mpls_route_reflectors instead of evpn_role and evpn_route_servers.
  • No Inband Management support.

See the following example using the mpls design:

Fabric topology hierarchy

As per the diagram above, the topology hierarchy is the following:

  • fabric_name
    • dc_name
      • pod_name

You must define the fabric_name variable and it must match the Ansible inventory group name covering all devices in scope of the fabric.

Variable Type Required Default Value Restrictions Description
dc_name String POD Name is used in:
- Fabric Documentation (Optional, falls back to fabric_name)
- SNMP Location: snmp_settings.location (Optional)
- HER Overlay DC scoped flood lists: overlay_her_flood_list_scope: dc (Required)
fabric_name String Required Fabric Name, required to match Ansible Group name covering all devices in the Fabric, must be an inventory group name.
pod_name String POD Name is used in:
- Fabric Documentation (Optional, falls back to dc_name and then to fabric_name)
- SNMP Location: snmp_settings.location (Optional)
- VRF Loopbacks: vtep_diagnostic.loopback_ip_pools.pod (Required)

Recommended to be common between Spines and Leafs within a POD (One l3ls topology).
# POD Name is used in:
# - Fabric Documentation (Optional, falls back to fabric_name)
# - SNMP Location: `snmp_settings.location` (Optional)
# - HER Overlay DC scoped flood lists: `overlay_her_flood_list_scope: dc` (Required)
dc_name: <str>

# Fabric Name, required to match Ansible Group name covering all devices in the Fabric, **must** be an inventory group name.

Fabric IP Addressing

Variable Type Required Default Value Restrictions Description
fabric_ip_addressing Dictionary
  mlag Dictionary
    algorithm String first_id Valid Values:
- first_id
- odd_id
- same_subnet
This variable defines the Multi-chassis Link Aggregation (MLAG) algorithm used.
Each MLAG link will have a /31 subnet with each subnet allocated from the relevant MLAG pool via a calculated offset.
The offset is calculated using one of the following algorithms:
- first_id: (mlag_primary_id - 1) * 2 where mlag_primary_id is the ID of the first node defined under the node_group.
This allocation method will skip every other /31 subnet making it less space efficient than odd_id.
- odd_id: (odd_id - 1) / 2. Requires the node_group to have a node with an odd ID and a node with an even ID.
- same_subnet: the offset will always be zero.
This allocation method will cause every MLAG link to be addressed with the same /31 subnet.
fabric_ip_addressing:
  mlag:

    # This variable defines the Multi-chassis Link Aggregation (MLAG) algorithm used.
    # Each MLAG link will have a /31 subnet with each subnet allocated from the relevant MLAG pool via a calculated offset.

  • All group/hostvars

While all templates can leverage the internal switch facts (switch.*) to customize the interface descriptions, the values are not part of the officially supported data models, and may change without notice.

Context for interface_descriptions templates

To help format the custom interface descriptions, the following contextual variables are available to the custom templates:

underlay_ethernet_interfaces:

  • {{ link.peer }}
  • {{ link.peer_interface }}
  • {{ link.type }} (underlay_p2p or underlay_l2)
  • All group/hostvars

While all templates can leverage the internal switch facts (switch.*) to customize the interface descriptions, the values are not part of the officially supported data models and may change without notice.

Type setting

  • The type: variable needs to be defined for each device in the fabric.
  • This is leveraged to load the appropriate settings to generate the configuration.

Tip

The node type setting can be automatically derived from a switch name by defining the patterns in the default_node_types data model.

Type setting example
# Defined in SPINE.yml file
# Can also be set directly in your inventory file under spine group
type: spine

# Defined in L3LEAFS.yml
# Can also be set directly in your inventory file under l3leaf group
type: l3leaf

# Defined in L2LEAFS.yml
# Can also be set directly in your inventory file under l2leaf group
type: l2leaf

# Defined in SUPER-SPINES.yml
# Can also be set directly in your inventory file under super-spine group
type: super-spine

# Defined in ROUTE-SERVERS.yml
# Can also be set directly in your inventory file under route-server group
type: overlay-controller
Variable Type Required Default Value Restrictions Description
type String Valid Values:
-
The type: variable needs to be defined for each device in the fabric.
This is leveraged to load the appropriate template to generate the configuration.
# The `type:` variable needs to be defined for each device in the fabric.
# This is leveraged to load the appropriate template to generate the configuration.
type: <str; "<value(s) of node_type_keys.type>">

Default node types settings

Node types can be defined statically on each node or in each group of nodes. By leveraging default_node_types, regular expressions can be used to determine the node type based on the hostname.

Warning

Please note that using the default_node_types functionality will cause certain tests in the eos_validate_state role to not be executed. This functionality will be restored as part of a later update to eos_validate_state and this note will then be removed.

Variable Type Required Default Value Restrictions Description
default_node_types List, items: Dictionary Uses hostname matches against a regular expression to determine the node type.
  - node_type String Required, Unique Resulting node type when regex matches.
    match_hostnames List, items: String Required Regular expressions to match against hostnames.
      - <str> String Required Regex needs to match full hostname (i.e. is bounded by ^ and $ elements).
# Uses hostname matches against a regular expression to determine the node type.
default_node_types:

    # Resulting node type when regex matches.
  - node_type: <str; required; unique>

    # Regular expressions to match against hostnames.
    match_hostnames: # required

        # Regex needs to match full hostname (i.e. is bounded by ^ and $ elements).
      - <str; required>

Node type settings

Node type settings are defined under the node_type_keys.key i.e spine:, l3leaf:, l2leaf: to configure management, underlay, overlay functionality.

Node type structure

All node types have the same structure based on defaults, node_group, node_group.node, node and all variables can be defined in any section and support inheritance like this:

Under node_type_keys.key:

defaults <- node_group <- node_group.node <- node

Tip

Define common node settings under defaults. This reduces user input requirements, limiting errors.

Variable Type Required Default Value Restrictions Description
<node_type_keys.key> Dictionary
  defaults Dictionary Define variables for all nodes of this type.
  node_groups List, items: Dictionary Define variables related to all nodes part of this group.
    - group String Required, Unique The Node Group Name is used for MLAG domain unless set with ‘mlag_domain_id’.
The Node Group Name is also used for peer description on downstream switches’ uplinks.

Node type inband management

Variable Type Required Default Value Restrictions Description
<node_type_keys.key> Dictionary
  defaults Dictionary Define variables for all nodes of this type.
    inband_mgmt_interface String Pointer to interface used for inband management.
All configuration must be done using other data models like network services or structured_config.
‘inband_mgmt_interface’ is only used to refer to this interface as source in various management protocol settings (future feature).

On L2 switches, this defaults to Vlan if either ‘inband_mgmt_subnet’ or ‘inband_mgmt_ip’ is set.
    inband_mgmt_vlan Integer 4092 VLAN number used for inband management on L2 switches (switches using port-channel trunks as uplinks).
When using ‘inband_mgmt_subnet’ the VLAN and SVIs will be created automatically on this switch as well as all ‘uplink_switches’.
When using ‘inband_mgmt_ip’ the VLAN and SVI will only be created on this device and added to uplink trunk. The VLAN and SVI on the parent switches must be created using network services data models.
    inband_mgmt_subnet String Format: ipv4_cidr Optional IP subnet assigned to inband management SVIs on L2 switches (switches using port-channels as uplinks).
Parent l3leafs will have SVI with “ip virtual-router” and host-route injection based on ARP.
This allows all l3leafs to reuse the same subnet across multiple racks without VXLAN extension.
SVI IP address will be assigned as follows:
virtual-router: + 1
l3leaf A : + 2 (same IP on all l3leaf A)
l3leaf B : + 3 (same IP on all l3leaf B)
l2leafs : + 3 +
GW on l2leafs : + 1
Assign range larger than total l2leafs + 5

Setting is ignored if ‘inband_mgmt_ip’ is set.

This setting is applicable to L2 switches (switches using port-channel trunks as uplinks).
    inband_mgmt_ip String Format: ipv4_cidr IP address assigned to the inband management interface set with ‘inband_mgmt_vlan’.
This overrides ‘inband_mgmt_subnet’, hence all behavior of ‘inband_mgmt_subnet’ is removed.

If this is set the VLAN and SVI will only be created on the L2 switch and added to uplink trunk.
The VLAN and SVI on the parent switches must be created using network services data models.

This setting is applicable to L2 switches (switches using port-channel trunks as uplinks).
    inband_mgmt_gateway String Format: ipv4 Default gateway configured in the ‘inband_mgmt_vrf’ when using ‘inband_mgmt_ip’. Otherwise gateway is derived from ‘inband_mgmt_subnet’ if set.

This setting is applicable to L2 switches (switches using port-channel trunks as uplinks).
    inband_mgmt_description String Inband Management Description configured on the Inband Management SVI.

This setting is only applied on the devices where it is set, it does not automatically affect any parent/child devices configuration, so it must be set on each applicable node/node-group/node-type as needed.
    inband_mgmt_vlan_name String Inband Management Name configured on the Inband Management VLAN.
This setting is only applied on the devices where it is set, it does not automatically affect any parent/child devices configuration, so it must be set on each applicable node/node-group/node-type as needed.
    inband_mgmt_vrf String default VRF configured on the Inband Management Interface.
The VRF is created if not already created by other means.
This setting is only applied on the devices where it is set, it does not automatically affect any parent/child devices configuration, so it must be set on each applicable node/node-group/node-type as needed.
    inband_mgmt_mtu Integer 1500 MTU configured on the Inband Management Interface.
This setting is only applied on the devices where it is set, it does not automatically affect any parent/child devices configuration, so it must be set on each applicable node/node-group/node-type as needed.
    inband_management_subnet deprecated String Format: ipv4_cidr Optional IP subnet assigned to inband management SVIs on L2 switches (switches using port-channels as uplinks).
Parent l3leafs will have SVI with “ip virtual-router” and host-route injection based on ARP.
This allows all l3leafs to reuse the same subnet across multiple racks without VXLAN extension.
SVI IP address will be assigned as follows:
virtual-router: + 1
l3leaf A : + 2 (same IP on all l3leaf A)
l3leaf B : + 3 (same IP on all l3leaf B)
l2leafs : + 3 +
GW on l2leafs : + 1
Assign range larger than total l2leafs + 5

Setting is ignored if ‘inband_mgmt_ip’ is set.

This setting is applicable to L2 switches (switches using port-channel trunks as uplinks).
This key is deprecated. Support will be removed in AVD version 5.0.0. Use inband_mgmt_subnet instead.
    inband_management_vlan deprecated Integer 4092 VLAN number used for inband management on L2 switches (switches using port-channel trunks as uplinks).
When using ‘inband_mgmt_subnet’ the VLAN and SVIs will be created automatically on this switch as well as all ‘uplink_switches’.
When using ‘inband_mgmt_ip’ the VLAN and SVI will only be created on this device and added to uplink trunk. The VLAN and SVI on the parent switches must be created using network services data models.This key is deprecated. Support will be removed in AVD version 5.0.0. Use inband_mgmt_vlan instead.

Default interface settings

  • Set default uplink, downlink, and MLAG interfaces, which will be used if these interfaces are not defined on a device (either directly or through inheritance).
  • These are defined based on the combination of node_type (e.g., l3leaf or spine) and a regex for matching the platform.
  • A list of interfaces or interface ranges can be specified.
  • Each list item supports range syntax that can be expanded into a list of interfaces. Interface range examples:
    • Ethernet49-52/1: Expands to [ Ethernet49/1, Ethernet50/1, Ethernet51/1, Ethernet52/1 ]
    • Ethernet1/31-34/1: Expands to [ Ethernet1/31/1, Ethernet1/32/1, Ethernet1/33/1, Ethernet1/34/1 ]
    • Ethernet49-50,53-54: Expands to [ Ethernet49, Ethernet50, Ethernet53, Ethernet54 ]
    • Ethernet1-2/1-4: Expands to [ Ethernet1/1, Ethernet1/2, Ethernet1/3, Ethernet1/4, Ethernet2/1, Ethernet2/2, Ethernet2/3, Ethernet2/4 ]
  • uplink_interfaces and mlag_interfaces under default_interfaces are directly inherited by uplink_interfaces and mlag_interfaces.
  • downlink_interfaces are referenced by the child switch (e.g., the leaf in a leaf/spine network). The child switch leverages an upstream switch’s default_downlink_interfaces using the child switch ID. This is then used to build uplink_switch_interfaces for that child.
    • In the case of max_parallel_uplinks > 1 the default_downlink_interfaces are mapped with consecutive downlinks per child ID.
    • Example for max_parallel_uplinks: 2, downlink interfaces will be mapped as [ <downlink1 to leaf-id1>, <downlink2 to leaf-id1>, <downlink1 to leaf-id2>, <downlink2 to leaf-id2> ...]
  • Please note that no default interfaces are defined in AVD itself. You will need to create your own based on the example below.

L3 edge and DCI settings

The l3_edge data model can be used to configure extra L3 P2P links anywhere in the fabric. It can be between two switches that are already part of the fabric inventory, or it can be towards another device, where only one end of the link is on a switch in the fabric.

The data model supports using IP pools, Subnet per link, specifying the IP addresses manually or using ipv6 with rfc5549. One of these options must be set. For BGP peerings the AS number must be specified. If the AS number is different than the AS number configured for the node, the local-as will be replaced on this BGP peering (neighbor <ip> local-as <as> no-prepend replace-as).

Make sure to configure the variables in a group_vars file covering all devices mentioned in the data model.

Core interfaces settings

The core_interfaces data model can be used to configure L3 P2P links anywhere in the fabric. It can be between two switches that are already part of the fabric inventory, or it can be towards another device, where only one end of the link is on a switch in the fabric.

The data model supports using IP pools, Subnet per link or specifying the IP addresses manually. For BGP peerings the AS number must be specified. If the AS number is different than the AS number configured for the node, the local-as will be replaced on this BGP peering (neighbor <ip> local-as <as> no-prepend replace-as).

Make sure to configure the variables in a group_vars file covering all devices mentioned in the data model.
