- counters (according to SNMP MIB?)
- better memory allocators
- default preferences of protocols: prefer BGP over OSPF/RIP external routes?

- adding of route: check whether all bits not covered by masklen are zero
- incoming packets: interface the packet came from? (esp. for multicasts)
- broadcast/multicast echoing suppresion
- we need ifindex at least for PtP links
- kernel: RTM_F_NOTIFY seems to be unimplemented
- kernel: RTM_DELROUTE not announced for device routes
Cleanup

- right usage of DBG vs. debug

- real multipath (doesn't seem to be simple at all :()
- fake multipath (even less simple)
- route recalculation timing and flap dampening
- route recalculation timing and flap dampening [see RFC2439 for algorithms]
- aggregate engine: standard route aggregation and summarization

- Route Tag
- limit routing table xfer (frequency, only to neighbors)
- multicast on/off (per interface)
- remember routes for all neighbors?
OSPF
~~~~
- point-to-point interface with address: advertise as stub network
- static routes: stub networks?
- modes: PtP, PtP-unnumbered, Broadcast, NBMA, point-to-multipoint
- importing of device routes for networks where we don't run OSPF
- tie breaking for equal type 2 ext metrics by using internal (type 1) metric
- SPF tree recalc timing (per-area timers?)
- aggregation: specify network list for each area
- check incoming packets using neighbor cache
- stub area: either no external routes or only default route
- RFC2328 appendix E: Use a better algorithm
- automatic generation of external route tags (RFC1403)
- RFC1587 NSSA areas
- RFC2370 opaque LSA's
- RFC1793 Demand Circuit Support ??
- respect interface MTU and try not to create larger packets unless unavoidable
BGP
......@@ -71,7 +77,6 @@ BGP
- attributes must be sorted!
- re-export of NEXT_HOP attribute
- BGP session over currently down interface
- route flap dampening?
- LOCAL_PREF attribute

- set TTL to 1 (configurable?)
