Re: Weekly Routing Table Report

  • From: Jerry Pasker

Analysis Summary
----------------

BGP routing table entries examined:                              153319
   Prefixes after maximum aggregation:                           89967


Should it matter that in six months its gone from 140k to 153k?
At this rate it might crack 200k in less than two years.
This was about the weekly routing table report, but I'm going to bring in some numbers from the CIDR report.

It would be back down to 140k if the "dirty 30" top offenders in the CIDR Report would aggregate their routes.

Someone's going to have to draw a line in the sand at some point, and someone thinking locally and acting globally is going to be punished by the globe. Don't ask me how this could work, because I don't have an answer.

Maybe "I'm the Dirty 30" T-Shirts could be made up and handed out. (I wonder if a couple of major routing venders, who profit from routing table growth, would sponsor the creation of the t shirts.... snicker...)
