BGP terminology question
I asked this question on inet-access and it was suggested I try NANOG.
I understand BGP flapping to be announcements followed by withdraws over a short period. I am seeing a peer with a large number of announcements and the normal number of withdraws. Is there a term to describe what I am seeing? I'd like to understand what is happening, but I've been looking for more info and can't seem to find anything. I suspect I am just not using the right words to search.
If there isn't a term, why would a peer announce thousands of time an hour with very few withdraws?
