I am trying to understand the BGP ATOMIC AGGREGATE attribute from a BGP
router which receives aggregate routes. Can somebody tell me what is the
taken by a BGP router when it receives a aggregate route with ATOMIC

I understand that the ATOMIC AGGREGATE is used when there is loss of
information while aggregating the routes. But what does the receiver of
the attribute do with the information. what kind of action does it take

If anyone can put some light on how this BGP attribute gets utilized in
the real world i would greatly appreciate.

Thanks in advance.
