Product Description

From the Back Cover

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.

HASH(0x9a841d38) out of 5 stars Best book I've ever read in troubleshooting 7 Jun. 2002
By Ian Peterson - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover
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.

HASH(0x9a920cc0) out of 5 stars A decent book, just not for the CCIE lab 3 Feb. 2006
By Sean E. Connelly - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover
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:

HASH(0x9a61e2dc) out of 5 stars Excellent Book, No other troubleshooting book like it 5 Jun. 2002
By William Katari - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover
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.

HASH(0x9a623d08) out of 5 stars Awesome book, opened my eyes to troubleshooting 30 May 2002
By Steve Latterman - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover
I have read a lot of networking books in the market. I must say, this is an awesome book that no books out there can compare. It opened my eyes to troubleshooting ip routing protocol. I am a level 3 networking support engineer and everytime I had a routing problem, I have to make the trouble of calling Cisco TAC. With this book, it saves me so much time in identifying the problem. I don't need to call TAC to solve my problem. I look good in front of my boss. Thanks Cisco Press for making this book available to us.
