Didnt say it was... it just that it came off the blue... (its
started in 2003).
Snapshot dont compile yet on Freebsd.
But those do: libgds-1.1.8-rc2.tar.gz
17th, 2005), cbgp-1.1.20-rc2.tar.gz
<http://cbgp.info.ucl.ac.be/downloads/cbgp-1.1.20-rc2.tar.gz> (May 17th,
I did spend a hour with the soft:
. it is all the quality of good software...
. small binaries...
. large memory usage for simulation... (~128M for "valid-topology
(July 15th, 2004)")
Where I could use it:
Well, I can see it being used in a Net Dept (of a ISP with heavy use
of IP routing and BGP) to check pre-depolyement of a new site...
Simulation of the impact of a maintenance... etc.
I fail to see a usage for smaller ISP that are using BGP only for
peering and OSPF internaly.
I would like to feed the full routing table, and zerba/quagga/bgp
logs, or route-views data to see a play by play of evenements... and
being able to inject command to try to control a evenement to reduce the
impact on the net...
(that would have been cool)
