  1. Hello Rene,


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

  2. Hello Rene

    How do you use the glass server?

  3. Hello Rene,
    I have a question and I am going to use the below topology for the question.

    Here Let’s say my AS is 100 and I am connected to two different AS numbers 200 and 300. I am also getting default routes from both of them(from AS 300 and AS 200). My BGP table for default route looks like this:

    According to the BGP table, I have 2 available routes for and number 2 is the best route. My question is “why both of the routes have (received & used) beside them?”. I thought only best route would have (received & used) beside it.

    Please shed some light on it.
    Thank you so much.

    Best Regards,
    Azm Uddin

  4. Hey Laz,
    You are absolutely correct. Just tested that in the lab and it was exactly what you said.

  5. Hello Deepika

    The network entries are the total number of unique prefix entries in the BGP database. In other words, these are the total number of destinations that this router knows and for which it has paths available to.

    The Path entries is the total number of available paths that have been registered by BGP to these destinations. Because there can be multiple paths to each network destination, this number is usually larger than the network entries.

    So as a result, Path Entries >= Network Entries

    I hope this has been helpful!
