Route Server Control

You may use BGP Standard/Extended/Large Communities to control route advertisement via the route servers:

  • (6695:6695), (6695:1:0): Redistribute to all route server peers (default)

  • (6695:$PEER-AS), (rt:6695:$PEER-AS), (6695:1:6695): Redistribute to $PEER-AS

  • (0:$PEER-AS), (rt:0:$PEER-AS), (6695:0:$PEER-AS): Do not redistribute to $PEER-AS

  • (0:6695), (6695:0:0): Do not redistribute

If $PEER-AS uses a 16b ASN, you may use Standard, Extended or Large Communities

If $PEER-AS uses a 32b ASN, you have to use Extended or Large Communities

There are additional communities for controlling announcements:

  • 65535:0         GRACEFUL_SHUTDOWN
  • 65535:666     BLACKHOLE
  • 6695:65281   NO-EXPORT
