Re: Bird vs Quagga revisited

Hello,

I came across this site a few weeks ago

http://code.google.com/p/google-quagga/source/list

Seems that Google (or at least some Googlers) are working on quagga, or
worked as the last update is tagged July 2011.
Main difference I see between Quagga and Bird, is that it is now possible
to run ISIS on Quagga, but I did not perform a full comparaison of this two
daemon.

Sorry to disrupt the bad cabling thread, but I'd like to revisit a thread
from 2 years ago.  I have read over the NANOG presentations:
http://www.nanog.org/meetings/**nanog48/presentations/Monday/**
Jasinska_RouteServer_N48.pdf<http://www.nanog.org/meetings/nanog48/presentations/Monday/Jasinska_RouteServer_N48.pdf>
http://www.nanog.org/meetings/**nanog48/presentations/Monday/**
Filip_BIRD_final_N48.pdf<http://www.nanog.org/meetings/nanog48/presentations/Monday/Filip_BIRD_final_N48.pdf>
as well as the NANOG thread:
http://www.gossamer-threads.**com/lists/nanog/users/123027<http://www.gossamer-threads.com/lists/nanog/users/123027>
But have not found anything worthwhile on the matter over the past 2 years.

Both Quagga and BIRD have developed since the comparison in 2010:
http://savannah.nongnu.org/**news/?group=quagga<http://savannah.nongnu.org/news/?group=quagga>
http://bird.network.cz/?o_news

But has anyone performed a more recent comparsion?  Does Quagga still
suffer from performance issues vs BIRD?  Has anyone performed an RFC
conformance test to see who complies more strictly to all the various RFCs?

If BIRD is so much better than Quagga why is there no instance at Oregon:
http://www.routeviews.org/

I also notice that BSD Router Project supports both:
http://bsdrp.net/bsdrp
How well do the two coexist at the same time?  Any migration issues going
from Quagga to BIRD? Any feedback appreciated.

We now take you back to cable wars :-)

Thanks,
Hank
