  1. Hello Rene,


    What mean a network is dampened and History in the BGP table?

  2. Hi Edwin,

    I'll create a separate post for this, it's about BGP Dampening.

    When a route is unstable, it's possible that it gets advertised and then removed again all the time...we don't want to see this, we want our BGP tables to be steady and stable.

    To prevent this from happening, a route that appears and disappears gets a "penalty". Once you exceed a certain threshold, it won't be advertised for a certain time. This is called "dampening".

    I'll cook up some examples for this so you can see how it works.


  3. Wow, this is great! Fantastic job!
