Spine-Leaf med VXLAN, how hard can it be? (English)
Abstract [sv]

Denna rapport syftade till att undersöka hur svår en omställning från hierarkiska CDA-nätverk till Spine-Leaf med VXLAN-nätverk uppfattades att vara för nätverksstudenter skolade på den hierarkiska modellen. Studien undersökte också vilka protokoll som används och antalet konfigurationsrader som krävdes för att etablera anslutning i Spine-Leaf-topologin med VXLAN och CDA-topologin med VLAN. Skillnader i prestanda eller belastningsfördelning mellan de olika topologierna undersöktes inte. För att ta reda på detta sattes två scenarion upp. Scenario 1 bestod av Spine-Leaf med VXLAN och scenario 2 bestod av CDA med VLAN. Allt konfigurerades manuellt och anslutning verifierades genom ping och traceroute i varje topologi. Resultatet visade att enligt mätningarna av svårighetsgrad var det svårare att implementera Spine-Leaf med VXLAN emot CDA med VLAN. Även att det krävdes mer konfigurations rader för att etablera konnektivitet för Spine-Leaf med VXLAN kontra CDA med VLAN. Trots att försökspersonerna uppfattade VXLAN som betydligt svårare att implementera var de eniga om att det ger ett robustare nätverk med funktioner överlägsna de som levereras av CDA med vlan. 

Abstract [en]

This report aimed to investigate how difficult the configuration of a Spine-Leaf with VXLAN would be perceived to be by students schooled on the hierarchical CDA network model. Instead of using the help of a ACI controller, everything will be configured manually, and connectivity verified through ping and traceroute in each topology. The study also aims to investigate the protocols used and the number of configuration lines required to establish connectivity in the Spine-Leaf topology with VXLAN and the CDA topology with VLAN. Differences in performance or load distribution between the different topologies will not be investigated. To determine this, two scenarios were set up. Scenario 1 consisted of Spine-Leaf with VXLAN topology and scenario 2 consisted of CDA with VLAN topology.The results showed that according to the measurements of difficulty, it was harder to implement Spine-Leaf with VXLAN than CDA with VLAN. It was also found that more configuration lines were required to establish connectivity for Spine-Leaf with VXLAN compared to CDA with VLAN. Despite the fact that the test subjects perceived VXLAN as more difficult, they agreed that it provides a more robust network with features superior to those delivered by CDA with VLAN.
