At the second occurrence, BGP shuns that prefix for a certain length of time; subsequent occurrences are timed out exponentially. Internal peer Peer that is in the same Autonomous System as the local system.
RFC does not specify a means of managing e. This requires a reboot on most routers. In the rgc of this document, we assume that a BGP speaker advertises to its peers only those routes that it uses itself in this context, a BGP speaker is said to “use” a BGP route if it is the most preferred BGP route and is used in forwarding. Retrieved March 16, 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 choose a different path to reach different blocks of that multi-homed network.

To facilitate this, it is a gfc optimization to order the path attributes according to type code. Damping can also mitigate denial of service attacks; damping timings are highly customizable.
At AS1’s router, it will either be dropped or a destination unreachable ICMP message will be sent back, depending on the configuration of AS1’s routers.
That is, the NLRI of this route cannot be more specific. Multiprotocol BGP allows information about the topology of IP multicast-capable routers to be exchanged separately from the topology of normal IPv4 unicast routers.
IGP routes and routes to directly connected networks are expected to specify tfc outbound interface. BGP-4 also introduces mechanisms that allow aggregation of routes, including aggregation of AS paths.
Theory and Applications” PDF. The Phase 1 decision function locks an Adj-RIB-In prior to operating on any route contained within it, and unlocks it after operating on all new or unfeasible routes contained within it.
Next, for each neighbor, the BGP process applies various standard and implementation-dependent criteria to decide which routes conceptually should go into the Adj-RIB-In. When bbp protocol is extended, the new behavior is fully rvc in the extension specifications. In the “Active” state, the router resets the ConnectRetry timer to zero and returns to the “Connect” state. Definition of Commonly Used Terms This section provides definitions for terms that have a specific meaning to the BGP protocol and that are used throughout the text.
While this slowed the growth of the routing table to a linear process for several years, with the expanded demand for multihoming by end user networks rc growth was once again superlinear by the middle of The Routing Table accumulates routes to directly connected networks, static routes, routes learned from the IGP protocols, and routes learned from BGP.
The selection process is formalized by defining a function that takes the attribute of a given route as an argument and returns either a a non-negative integer denoting the degree of preference for the route, or b a value denoting that this route is ineligible to be installed in Loc-RIB and will be excluded from the next phase of route selection. Instead, an ISP generally publishes vgp 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.
IGP Interior Gateway Protocol – a routing protocol used to exchange routing information among routers within a single Autonomous System. If a router is misconfigured or mismanaged then it may get into a rapid cycle between down and up states.
Supported Standards for BGP
Path Attribute Ordering Implementations that rfv update messages as described above in Section 6. BGP communities are attribute tags that can be applied to incoming or outgoing prefixes to achieve some common goal RFC This document defines the following Error Codes: It is not intended to specify any particular implementation. The exact nature of this policy information, and the computation involved, is a local matter.

Terms “active” and “passive” Their structure is not visible to other BGP routers, although they usually can be interrogated with management commands on the local router.
The suggested default amount of jitter SHALL be determined by multiplying the base value of the appropriate timer by a random factor, which is uniformly distributed in the range from 0. A feature known as route flap damping RFC is built into many BGP implementations in an attempt to mitigate the effects of route flapping.
BGP does not require a rfv refresh of the routing table. Similarly, neighborAS n is a function that returns the neighbor AS from which the route was received.

The Phase 2 function is a separate process, which completes when it has no further work to do. Not only does the system overhead increase bgl to bggp reception of multiple messages, but the overhead of scanning the routing table for updates to BGP peers and other routing protocols and sending the associated messages is incurred multiple times as well.
This document defines the following Path Attributes Type Codes: 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.
