Re: Lessons from the AU model
Standard practice would be to localpref customer routes over peering routes.
unless unusual agreements exist with peers, this is pretty much normal config everywhere ever since vaf whacked asp and me in '96. otherwise, if you peer multiple places, the peer sees inconsistent routes, which usually gets you a nastygram from rigorous peers.
Likely to result in assymetric routing as the customer prefers peering routes over transit.
omg! asymmetric routing on the internet! world at eleven, end of news predicted! :)
meeting at multiple points and hot potato gets you asymmetry right off the bat.
