Description (partial)

Some of the packets are dropped in the UCMP/ECMP scenario with more than 32 paths where ingress interface is BVI and one of the egress interfaces is GRE Tunnel (Tunnel-IP interface).

Packets are being dropper on the ingress LC on the following NPU counter: RSV_DROP_IPV4_TXADJ_NO_MATCH.

show cef drops location <loc> command is reporting "No route drops" on ingress LC:

For example:

RP/0/RSP0/CPU0#show cef drops location 0/2/CPU0
CEF Drop Statistics
Node: 0/2/CPU0
  Unresolved drops     packets :               0
  Unsupported drops    packets :               0
  Null0 drops          packets :               0
  No route drops       packets :               4230  <- drops reported.

Issue is visible when following conditions are met:
- Ingress interface is BVI
- Traffic is load-balanced over more than 32 ECMP/UCMP paths
- One of the egress interfaces is Tunnel-IP
- Ingress LC / NPU is different than Egress one

Additional trigger:
- Features like ACL, Netflow configured on BVI which is triggering slow path processing
