Correct me if I'm wrong, but it has the potential to cause more damage than
anything else if you network routes asynchronously. I turned it on a while
ago and noticed my in and outbound traffic dropped by about 60%. I'm sure
that the 60% drop in traffic had to do with traffic coming into the network
on one interface and being local pref'd out a different interface.
Because of the asynchronous routing, it's useless in my environment, unless
there is a knob that doesn't cause it to break under these circumstances.
If not, would this feature not be best suited for ISPs who are not in a BGP
relationship with their upstreams?
Like everything else, it depends.
There's always RFC2267.
