Re: Generation of traffic in "settled" peering arrangement

Actually the distribution problem is pretty simple.

In your forwarding table add a per-prefix cost.

The cost is expressed in terms of tokens.

The tokens are deducted from a token bucket.

The number of tokens in the bucket (depth and refresh-rate) is
arrived at by some engineering or sales process.

This polices MEDs nicely.
