2 ExtremeXOS: Modular Operating System Modularity = Business Continuity Dynamic software uploads Self-healing process restart Restart capable processes: 2 Telnet/SSH/SCP (11.0) SNMP (11.0) TFTP (11.0) HTTPD (11.3) XML/SOAP (12.0) CNA Agent (11.2) Network Login (11.3) LLDP (11.4) EAPS (11.0) VRRP (11.0) OSPF (Graceful Restart extensions, 11.3) BGP (Graceful Restart extensions, 11.4) IS-IS (Graceful Restart extensions, 12.1) End-to-end, from desktop to data 2

3 CLEAR-Flow CLEAR-Flow is a statistical measurement capability in ExtremeXOS that: Collects data from ACL matches (in the form of counters) Uses a switch-based language to evaluate these counters Can modify switch behavior based on these evaluations There are five CLEAR-Flow expressions: 3 Count Rules: Measure the count of a variable Delta Rules: Measure the change in the count of a variable in a specific period of time Ratio Rules: Measure the ratio between two variables Delta-Ratio Rules: Measure the change in the ratio between two variables Rule-True-Count Rules: Measures the number of times a CLEAR-Flow rule has been true (fired) 3

6 Direct Attach Eliminate the vswitch Virtually Reducing Network Tiers Inter-VM traffic is transmitted and received on the same network physical port. VM2 CPU and network utilization severely impacted, due to DoS attack. CLEAR-Flow enabled to dynamically provision/block DoS traffic. VM2 CPU and network utilization reverts to healthy. Direct Attach Enabled Switch Guest OS: Ubuntu Active applications: gnome-systemmonitor for network and CPU utilization hping to generate DoS attack targeted at VM2 Guest OS: Ubuntu Active applications: gnome-systemmonitor for network and CPU utilization tcpdump to monitor attack traffic from VM1 VM1 VM2 Host: Fedora 12 Hypervisor: QEMU-KVM 6
