Couldn't quite parse this, but it sounds scary.
Iīm refering to the most popular way of causing an IGP meltdown.
Obviously there are other ways, like software defects to make your IGP
go mad. But when your upstreamīs IGP does that, you want to have
provider B to switch over to. It probably has gotten better when the
Internet has matured but a few years back when I was more involved in
day-to-day operations it was a few times a year when excersizing this
option was the best course of action.
