Has anyone run into a situation where the MTU at one end of a link was
configured differently from the MTU at the other end? How did you catch it?
In general, do you see any need for a debugging tool to be standardized to
find such mismatches?
I've seen several cases where BGP would not come back up after a link
flap. In every case, this was when we had 7600 on one end and a CRS
on the other and we had the MTU configured exactly the same on each
side. The MTU value on the CRS should be 14 bytes higher than an IOS
device because the XR device includes the Ethernet header size.
Whenever I see a BGP session that does not come back up after a link
flap, I immediate check MTU size on both sides.
