Correct me if I'm wrong, but it has the potential to cause more damage than anything else if you network routes asynchronously. I turned it on a while ago and noticed my in and outbound traffic dropped by about 60%. I'm sure that the 60% drop in traffic had to do with traffic coming into the network on one interface and being local pref'd out a different interface. Because of the asynchronous routing, it's useless in my environment, unless there is a knob that doesn't cause it to break under these circumstances. If not, would this feature not be best suited for ISPs who are not in a BGP relationship with their upstreams?
Like everything else, it depends. There's always RFC2267. - paul
