When there is a lot of churn, some of the EBGP peergroup members might not receive the withdrawn message. This will happen only if the EBGP neighbors have tons of update queued (ie unless the EBGP neighbors are receiving thousands of prefixes, this bug will not be seen.). Thus it is most likely to affect people using EBGP peergroups within the confederation. If you are not using EBGP peergroup, it will not have any problem. I already have the fix and should be available soon. The bugid is CSCdj08110. --ravi > ------- End of Forwarded Message > - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - -
