Re: Community advertisement
What would actually be interesting to me would be full tables w/ that customer list tagged as a separate community. It isn't difficult to config, does anyone know if this is actually offered by any providers? If not, why not? It would be very helpful to know which routes stay on a single backbone, and which traverse peering links, etc.. The partial tables provide this, but there are situations where one wants to route other traffic to that provider, so a full table is necessary (default won't really work if you've got advertisements from other providers you _don't_ want to send that traffic to.) I'd be interested to hear if others are doing anything similar to this, have requested it, etc. The standard community offering I've seen from anyone are the MED like 'set local_pref on our backbone' tags which helps direct inbound traffic, but there is little available for outbound. Not any help to you (unless you are in Oz :-) but we offer it and it's not particularly hard to do. Mark.
