I'm posting for a thirdparty.
Does anybody have any experience with Border Gateway Protocols? I know I
don't, I had to Google it!
"I am trying to locate people who have had experience operating large
networks, in particular people who are familiar with the operation of BGP
within the networks. Specifically, what I am trying to locate is some
stories of what occurs within a network during periods of instability.
So when routes flap, how long does the network take to converge again and
what are the factors that influence the network convergence."
So if you have any war stories please let me know.
What information do you (they) exactly want and in how does it relate
to Linux in general? Didn't google provide some excellent
information/resources to your specific question?
I am a little confused how your question relates to slug/linux?
