Thus spake "Mikael Abrahamsson" <swmike () swm pp se>
When I read the article I didnt recognize anything in it that correlated
with my understanding as to how BGP et all works. Am I the only
one who after reading it thought the author needs to cut back on
whatever drugs he is taking?
I have never seen any router "send test packets and time them" nor take
congestion into account when doing routing decisions?
There are indeed commercial and in-house products which use probes and
traffic measurement to influence the BGP decision process. Watch tarpit
logs for sites that ping every subnet on a regular schedule. I hope this
doesn't catch on or all the pings may drown out real traffic...
As a general description of Internet routing, I agree it's laughable -- but
the technology does exist.
