Depending on the implementation of that process, the BGP route is not necessarily selected. A single router or two for redundancy can be made a route reflector: The current standard however specifies that missing MEDs are to be treated as the lowest rfc 1771 value.

AS2 will see the three routes, and depending on the routing policy of AS2, it will store a copy of the three routes, rfc 1771 aggregate the prefix’s For a multi-homed network, if it announces the same network blocks across all of its BGP peers, the result may be that one or several 1771 its inbound links become congested while the other links remain under-utilized, because external networks all picked that set of congested paths as optimal.

It is not a trivial task to balance the inbound traffic to a rfc 1771 network across its multiple inbound paths, due to rfc 1771 of the BGP route selection 177. Confederations are used in very large networks where a large AS can be configured to encompass smaller more manageable internal ASs.

Multiprotocol BGP allows information rfc 1771 the topology of IP multicast-capable routers to be exchanged separately from the topology of normal IPv4 unicast routers.

If a router is misconfigured or mismanaged then it may get into a rapid cycle between down and up rfc 1771.

The BGP Extended Community Attribute was added inin order to rfx the rfc 1771 of such attributes and to provide a community rfc 1771 structuring by means of a type field. Their structure is not visible to other BGP routers, although they usually can be interrogated with management commands on the local rdc.


Border Gateway Protocol

The additional information tells rfc 1771 BGP process such things as whether individual entries belong in the Adj-RIBs for specific neighbors, whether the peer-neighbor route selection process made received policies eligible for the Loc-RIB, and whether Loc-RIB entries are eligible to be submitted to the local router’s routing table management process. Instead, an ISP generally publishes a list of well-known or proprietary communities with a description for each one, which essentially becomes an agreement of how prefixes are to be treated.

In common practice, rfc 1771 only one of the confederation AS numbers is rfc 1771 by the Internet as a whole.

A BGP speaker sends rfc 1771 keep-alive messages every 60 seconds [5] to maintain the connection. Without damping, the excessive activity can cause a heavy processing load on routers, which may in turn delay updates on other routes, and so affect overall routing stability.

With damping, a route’s flapping is exponentially decayed. If AS2 wants to send data to prefix In the simplest arrangement, all routers within a single AS rfc 1771 participating in BGP routing must be configured in a full rrfc The end user has no rfc 1771 ability to enforce correct actions being taken by the ISP, though problems in this area are generally rare and accidental. These tools may be combined, for example, as a hierarchy of route reflectors.

For each peer-to-peer session, a BGP implementation maintains a state variable that rfc 1771 which of these six states the session is in.

The major enhancement was the support for Classless Inter-Domain Routing and use of route aggregation to decrease the size of routing tables. We show that the current damping design rfc 1771 to the intended behavior only under persistent route flapping.

Route reflectors and confederations both reduce the number of iBGP peers to each router and rfc 1771 reduce processing overhead. If the router does not have a route to that destination from any non-BGP source, the withdrawn route will be removed from the main routing table.


When the number of flaps rfc 1771 small, the global routing dynamics deviates significantly from the expected behavior with a longer convergence delay. This page was last edited on 27 Julyat Like rfc 1771 other routing protocols, BGP does not detect congestion.

RFC A Border Gateway Protocol 4 (BGP-4) – Wikidata

While a full IPv4 BGP table as of August rfc 1771is in excess ofprefixes, [22] many older routers have a limit rgc k ,—, rfc 1771 [24] routing table entries. In order to make decisions in its operations with peers, a BGP peer uses a simple finite state machine FSM that consists of six states: Although MBGP enables the exchange of inter-domain multicast routing information, other protocols such as 177 Protocol Independent Multicast family are needed to build trees and forward rfc 1771 traffic.

This all counts as AS1 announcing four routes. BGP communities are attribute tags that can 17771 applied to incoming or outgoing prefixes to achieve some common goal RFC Once the interface goes down, and there are no more preferred routes, the Loc-RIB route would be installed in the main routing table.

It should rfc 1771 be noted that the community attribute is transitive, but communities rfc 1771 by the customer very rarely become propagated outside the next-hop AS. Confederations can be used in conjunction with route reflectors. To work around this problem, BGP administrators of that multihomed network may divide a large contiguous IP address block into smaller blocks and tweak the route announcement to make different blocks look optimal on different paths, so that external networks will rfc 1771 a different path to reach 17711 blocks of that multi-homed network.
