Re: Using link congestion to control routing updates

Route flap is bad. Something like this would introduce a huge amount of route flap, and would probably just end up causing congestion ossilation.Hello all, I was wondering if anyone was aware of a way to use the congestion of a network link to control the routing update. For example if I have a very small link that gets congested, I may want the router to withhold a routing update until link congestion falls below a certain threshold like 60% of bandwidth. Is anyone aware of anything like this available today or a technique that might accomplish something similar? You can contact me off list if this topic isn't germane.
As far as I know there is nothing to do this in the 'common' routers (cisco, Juniper).
