Hi NANOG list,
I am wondering if anyone can give me possible reasons for some uncommon BGP
origin change activity. What we see is that sometimes the origin for a
prefix seems to change from a customer AS to it upstream provider and back.
In many instances the prefix simply switches back and forth for hours or
even days and sometimes very rapidly . Below I’m including an example of
some of the activities I see.
Prefix 202.83.96/20 on border router 188.8.131.52(AS 852)
At 14:10:56 Dec 04 2010, the BGP path with AS18106 as the origin
At 14:11:57, the BGP path with AS9255 as the origin
At 14:14:27, the BGP path with AS18106 as the origin.
