Troubleshooting IP Routing Protocols (CCIE Professional Development Series)

Troubleshooting IP Routing Protocols (CCIE Professional Development Series)

The comprehensive, hands-on guide for resolving IP routing problems

  • Understand and overcome common routing problems associated with BGP, IGRP, EIGRP, OSPF, IS-IS, multicasting, and RIP, such as route installation, route advertisement, route redistribution, route summarization, route flap, and neighbor relationships
  • Solve complex IP routing problems through methodical, easy-to-follow flowcharts and step-by-step scenario instructions for troubleshooting
  • Obtain essential troubleshooting skills from detailed case studies by experienced Cisco TAC team members
  • Examine numerous protocol-specific debugging tricks that speed up problem resolution
  • Gain valuable insight into the minds of CCIE engineers as you prepare for the challenging CCIE exams

As the Internet continues to grow exponentially, the need for network engineers to build, maintain, and troubleshoot the growing number of component networks has also increased significantly. IP routing is at the core of Internet technology and expedient troubleshooting of IP routing failures is key to reducing network downtime and crucial for sustaining mission-critical applications carried over the Internet. Though troubleshooting skills are in great demand, few networking professionals possess the knowledge to identify and rectify networking problems quickly and efficiently. Troubleshooting IP Routing Protocols provides working solutions necessary for networking engineers who are pressured to acquire expert-level skills at a moment’s notice. This book also serves as an additional study aid for CCIE candidates.

Authored by Cisco Systems engineers in the Cisco Technical Assistance Center (TAC) and the Internet Support Engineering Team who troubleshoot IP routing protocols on a daily basis, Troubleshooting IP Routing Protocols goes through a step-by-step process to solving real-world problems. Based on the authors’ combined years of experience, this complete reference alternates between chapters that cover the key aspects of a given routing protocol and chapters that concentrate on the troubleshooting steps an engineer would take to resolve the most common routing problems related to a variety of routing protocols. The book provides extensive, practical coverage of BGP, IGRP, EIGRP, OSPF, IS-IS, multicasting, and RIP as run on Cisco IOS Software network devices.

Troubleshooting IP Routing Protocols offers you a full understanding of invaluable troubleshooting techniques that help keep your network operating at peak performance. Whether you are looking to hone your support skills or to prepare for the challenging CCIE exams, this essential reference shows you how to isolate and resolve common network failures and to sustain optimal network operation.

This book is part of the Cisco CCIE Professional Development Series, which offers expert-level instruction on network design, deployment, and support methodologies to help networking professionals manage complex networks and prepare for CCIE exams.

    This is the best book I have seen in troubleshooting. Especially covering a tough topic like IP routing protocol. I particularly like the error message in each routing protocol. This allows me to understand the meaning of the error message that is not covered in any of the Cisco manuals. This saves me the trouble of calling Cisco TAC. This is a must book to have if you are in Network operations.

    This is an excellent book to have. The flowcharts guide me through different problem scenerios, I have already solved many routing problems already using this book. If you want to be a network expert, I say this is a book that you must have.

    CiscoPress’s “Troubleshooting IP Routing Protocols” by Shamim, Azis, Liu and Martey is mislabeled. CiscoPress has labeled this book as part of their `CCIE Professional Development’ series – I really do not see the value of placing this book in the same vein as other CCIE books in the series (such as Doyle, Solie, & Clark). However, having been employed as a Network Administrator for a number of years, the book does help troubleshoot and isolate routing protocol issues.

    Each major IGP (RIP, IGRP, EIGRP, OSPF & IS-IS) along with PIM and BGP is discussed at depth. Each routing protocol is dedicated 2 chapters – one chapter discussing the protocol and one chapter discussing troubleshooting methodologies. The troubleshooting chapters start out with flow charts that can help isolate the issue. Too be honest though, the flow-charts are lacking in depth, and I found only helped verify simple routing issues. The book is also missing a much needed chapter on route redistribution.

    There are not that many typos in the book. I give this book four stars as it takes a unique approach to troubleshooting routing protocol issues. However, I fail to find the reason this book needs to be on a CCIE’s bookshelf.

    I give this book 4 pings out of 5:

    This is an absolutely wonderful book to have. The flowcharts are easy to follow and it actually helps me to solve network problems for me. I am currently preparing for CCIE lab exam and I am sure this book will help me tremendously in the exam. Kudos to the authors who put this book together.

    I strongly disagree with the comments “Same old stuff and that its a cut n paste from the materials that are already out there” posted by one of the reviewer previously. How could someone read the whole book comprises of 846 pages in 2 weeks with true understanding of what Author is trying to convey.
    Also I have been through half of the book in 3 weeks and its pretty help full is undertstanding in-depth nature of protocols and troubleshooting strategies to follow to nail them down in the real world scenario.I agree there is some common stuff that is already there but the best is that Authors try to convey the strategies to debug the problem in a logical manners.
    At last I would rather say it is very easy to give comments rather than to take step and write that kinda book.
