Enabling MPLS Traffic Engineering

MPLS is enabled for Traffic Engineering (TE) on configured MPLS RSVP interfaces.

MPLS can be used to direct packets through a network over a predetermined path of routers. Traffic engineering works with MPLS to create paths that make the best use of available network resources. In this task, MPLS TE is enabled when RSVP is configured on interfaces.
  1. To enable MPLS TE, configure RSVP on the interface and commit the configuration.
    
    vyatta@vyatta:~$ configure
    vyatta@R1# set protocols mpls-rsvp interfaces interface dp0p192p1
    vyatta@R1# commit
    vyatta@R1# exit
    vyatta@vyatta:~$
    
                        
    The result is that the interface is enabled for MPLS TE.
  2. You can enter the show mpls rsvp interface command to display that the interface is enabled for MPLS TE.
    
    vyatta@vyatta:~$ show mpls rsvp interface
    Interface     RSVP status   Interface Type
