I'm curious - has anyone performed a study of the BGP convergence
times at NAPs? I mean, all those private interconnects are good and
fine and all, but with the existing BGP implementations in vendor
equipment today, I can see the BGP convergence as this big matrix
of relationships of BGP performance of peers routers.
On the same breath, why aren't people using route-servers at NAPs?
