Haven't we done enough of this already? I think that EVERY site should go
through this phase to verify their configurations and make sure their
neighbors aren't doing anything stupid, but I see no need for a site that
has been CIDR-clueful for 6 months to continue pussyfooting about.
Is everyone in the world (or at least on bgpd) going to go to the trouble
of checking to see if they have a -correct- aggregate route covering
the individual networks and report problems if they do not? Furthermore,
if they don't have the route, what tools are there in place for tracking
down the lack of said route? If I'm advertising
and I want to replace them with 220.127.116.11/15, we can't track down the
AS who is swallowing the CIDR route until we actually rip out one of
the less specific routes. Given that hurdle, I suggest cutting the
administriva and yanking the less specific routes at a nice slow managable
rate and watching the fireworks.
OK, so when will cisco be ready to run BGP4 to us?
Bluff called and raised.
