BGP-4 also introduces mechanisms that allow aggregation of routes, including aggregation of AS paths. Internal peer Peer that is in the same Autonomous 11771 as the local system.
Multiple Networks Per Message Comparison with RFC Advertisement and Storage For the rfv of this protocol, a route is defined as a unit of information that pairs a set of destinations with the attributes of a path to those destinations. This information is sufficient for constructing a graph of AS connectivity, from which routing loops may be pruned, and, at the AS level, some policy decisions dfc be enforced.
External peer Peer that is in a different Autonomous System than the local system. We would like to specially acknowledge numerous contributions by Dennis Ferguson to the earlier version of this document. Whether a specific BGP route should be installed in the Routing Table, and whether a BGP route should override a route to the same destination installed by another source, is a local policy decision, and is not specified in this document.
A TCP connection is formed between two systems. Efficient Organization of Routing Information Since this classic definition was developed, it has become common for a single AS to.
Autonomous System AS The classic definition of an Autonomous System is a set of routers under a single technical administration, using an interior gateway protocol IGP and common metrics to determine how to route packets within the AS, and using an inter-AS routing protocol to determine how to route packets to other ASes. Distribution of this memo is unlimited. IGP Interior Gateway Protocol – a routing protocol used to exchange routing information among routers within a single Autonomous System.
BGP does not require a periodic refresh of the routing table. When the protocol is extended, the new behavior is fully documented in the extension specifications.
Network Working Group Y. FSM and Collision Detection The initial data flow is the portion of the BGP routing table that is allowed by the export policy, called the Adj-Ribs-Out see 3. Routing information that the BGP speaker uses to forward packets or to construct the forwarding table used for packet forwarding is maintained in the Routing Table.
The Routing Table accumulates routes to directly connected networks, static routes, routes learned from the IGP protocols, and routes learned from BGP. In the context of this document, we assume that a BGP speaker advertises to its peers only those routes that it uses itself in this context, a Ffc speaker is said to “use” a BGP route if it is the most preferred BGP route and is used in forwarding.
Frequency of Route Advertisement Please refer to the current edition of the rfcc Official Protocol Standards” STD 1 for the standardization state and status of this protocol. These are the routes that will be used by the local BGP speaker.
Since this classic definition was developed, it has become common for a single AS to use several IGPs and, sometimes, several sets tfc metrics within an AS.
This behavior can be, and is, modified by extension specifications. The use of the term Autonomous System stresses the fact that, even when multiple IGPs and metrics are used, the administration of an AS appears to other ASes to have a single coherent interior routing plan and presents a consistent picture of the destinations that are reachable through it.
Definition of Commonly Used Terms Message Header Error Handling Unfeasible route Frc previously advertised feasible route that is no longer available for use. Calculation of Degree of Preference This, in turn, reflects the set of policy decisions that can and cannot be enforced using BGP. Incremental updates are sent as the routing tables change. This network reachability information includes information on the list of Autonomous Systems ASes that reachability 17711 traverses.
RFC – part 1 of 4
Their contents represent routes that are available as input to the Decision Process. If a BGP speaker chooses to advertise a previously received route, it MAY add to, or modify, the path attributes of the route before advertising it to a peer. Honig for their contributions to the earlier version BGP-1 of this document.
Rdc document specifies the base behavior of the BGP protocol.
This eliminates the need to implement explicit update fragmentation, retransmission, acknowledgement, and sequencing. There are three methods by which a given BGP speaker can indicate that a route has been withdrawn from service: Terms “active” and “passive” Changing rf attribute s of a route is accomplished by advertising a replacement route.
