BGP Metrics

  • From: Rusty Zickefoose

-----BEGIN PGP SIGNED MESSAGE-----

Hi all,
	I've occasionally noticed a requirement to disregard mask when
determining preferred route in the BGP algorithm.  Specifically, when
a multi-homed customer wishes to announce both his delegated networks
through both connections.  The goal is to achieve true multi-homing,
with out requiring the customer to get independent address space. Thus
far, I've used various "miserable hacks".  Has anyone else perceived a
similar requirement? if so, has anything being done to get such a flag
added?

Or am I just missing the obvious?
