Transit Advanced Config

Note

The advanced configuration applies to each Aviatrix Transit Gateway. Go to Multi-Cloud Transit -> Advanced Config -> Edit Transit. Select one gateway and apply the following changes.

Local AS Number

This option changes the Aviatrix Transit Gateway ASN number before you setup Aviatrix Transit Gateway connection configurations.

BGP Manual Advertised Network List

This field is only applicable to Transit GW established by Transit Network workflow.

By default, Aviatrix Transit GW advertises individual Spoke VPC CIDRs to VGW. You can override that by manually entering the intended CIDR list to advertise to VGW.

This feature is critical to limit the total number of routes carried by VGW (maximum is 100).

To enable this option in software version prior to 4.1, click Site2Cloud on the left navigation bar, select the connection established by Step 3, click to edit. Scroll down to “Connected Transit” to enable.

For software version 4.1 and later, you will click Transit Network on the left navigation bar, click the Advanced Config option and browse to the Edit Gateway tab. Select the Transit Gateway you want to enable the Connected Transit.

To disable the option, leave the field blank and click “Change BGP Manual Spoke Advertisement”.

Connected Transit

By default, Aviatrix Spoke VPCs do not have routing established to communicate with each other via Transit. They are completely segmented.

If you would like to build a full mesh network where Spoke VPCs communicate with each other via Transit GW, you can achieve that by enabling “Connected Transit” mode. All connections are encrypted.

Note

For a Spoke VPC/VNet in a multi-cloud transit to communicate with a Spoke VPC in TGW Orchestrator, Connected

Transit must be enabled on the Aviatrix Transit Gateway that connects both sides.

For software version 4.1 and later, you will click Transit Network on the left navigation bar, click the Advanced Config option and browse to the Edit Gateway tab. Select the Transit Gateway you want to enable the Connected Transit.

Note all Spokes should be either in HA mode or non HA mode. A mixed deployment where some Spokes have HA enabled while others don’t work in a normal environment, but does not work when a failover happens on a HA enabled Spoke.

BGP ECMP

This option is to enable Equal Cost Multi Path (ECMP) routing for the next hop. For Aviatrix Transit Gateway next hop routing decision process, refer to ActiveMesh 2.0 next hop..

Click the Slide Bar to enable BGP ECMP.

Prepend AS Path

You can insert BGP AS_PATH on the Aviatrix Transit Gateway to customize the BGP AP_PATH field when it advertises to VGW or peer devices. For example, enter 65458, 65478 in the input field, these ASN will appear to the remote end.

This configuration applies to all BGP peers of the Aviatrix Transit Gateway.

If you don’t configure this field, Transit Gateway only advertises its own ASN.

BGP Polling Time

Aviatrix Transit Gateways report its BGP routes to the Controller periodically. By default, the periodic timer is 50 seconds. This polling time affects BGP route change convergence time.

This option changes the default polling time. The range is 10 seconds to 50 seconds.

Refresh BGP Advertised Routes

This option reset BGP connection to the remote BGP peers.

AWS TGW Edge Segmentation

Refer to TGW Edge Segmentation for details.

TGW Edge Segmentation can be enabled at given time. Select a connection to enable or disable.

BGP Overlapping Alert Email

When Aviatrix Controller detects overlapping network CIDRs in the network, it sends out alert emails to the admins.

BGP Route Limit Alert Email

AWS VGW BGP supports up to 100 routes. When this limit is reached, VGW BGP goes down and causes outage. This email alert notifies admin when routes approach 90.
