What is the best way to do outbound traffic engineering? I would like to
be able to determine the best path possible and send traffic out the
Could this be done with a copy of the BGP tables?
Obviously as they are consumer connections, I wouldn't get a BGP feed so
would need to download a copy, which has the risk of stale data. Perhaps
some sort of multihop BGP setup?
I have done some research and found a lot of references to small site
multihoming without BGP for link redundancy but not for traffic
