Re: Operational Issues with 69.0.0.0/8...

Todd,

If this helps.  Do something like the following...

        telnet route-views.oregon-ix.net > /tmp/file
         term len 0
         sh ip bgp 69.0.0.0 255.0.0.0 l
         quit

        cut -c62-2000 < /tmp/file | awk '{print $1}' | sort -n | uniq -c | more

...your commands will vary.

You will see plenty of routes within 69/8.

A closer look with show that around 121 routes are seen in the 69/8 range via most of the feeds into Oregon.  There is one big exception...

        69.4.64.0/20

... it shows up via AS-2548 (Digex) and the other feeds, but it's the only route within 69/8 that shows up via AS-2548.  This is valuable information.

It does not mean there is filtering within AS-2548, but I would recommend you contact them to further this investigation.

BTW:  This is exactly what Oregon is great for!  It shows up issues like this with ease.  Thanks!

Martin
