I agree with Matt, if a network turns off LSRR, then
I try to hand them the ticket. However, it seems that
lots of sites either yield no human response at all, or
get back to you a few days later. Not very helpful in the
face of intermittent problems. So you're the one holding
the trouble ticket with no tools and no help.
I've thought a little about this over the past few
months as more sites shut off LSRR, and it seems like
a "ping" or "traceroute" server-client would really
come in handy. No human interaction needed, I just
request a ping/trace from site A going from A to B.
Has anyone explored this or is it a silly idea and
I'm being dense.
