Router Development Tasks
- Develop an atomized router, a BGP router with extensions for atoms. The router should be deployable in the Internet without breaking BGP or forwarding. The router is based on Zebra BGP router code base. Implementations based on previous and current atoms architectures completed. Source code to be released by February 2004.
- Test atomized routing in a confined deployment scenario using vimage. done.
- Simulate and measure atomized routing performance in BGP++. in progress.
- Analyse number and stability of (hypothetical) declared atoms based on observed BGP table snapshots and BGP updates of prefixes. done.
- Transform observed BGP updates on prefixes to an equivalent stream of updates on (hypothetical) declared atoms. Analyse the the resulting atom update stream. done.
- Repeat the above analysis under provider-declared atoms, i.e. under the assumption that providers are able to aggregate prefixes originated by stub customers into atoms. done.
- Determine properties and dynamics of atoms with respect to BGP attributes other than AS path. done.
- Rewrite and release Andre Broido's scripts for analysing Route Views tables and computing policy atoms observed in the current Internet. done.
- Create a bibliography of BGP related research. This has been incorporated into CAIDA's networking bibliography. done.
