Hi, I am a new member on this list. I had a question regarding the nature of the BGP peering sessions of the RRCs. Is there any place I can find accurate information about the way the different RRCs maintain their peering sessions; as in how many of the sessions are multi-hop BGP sessions and how many are direct link sessions etc? I was wondering about this since, there has been a paper (see below) published in 2002 that said that most of the RRCs peering sessions were multi-hop eBGP sessions and as a result the BGP data collected here cannnot be an accurate refelction of what goes on the actual Internet/backbone routers. "Observation and Analysis of BGP Behavior under Stress", Proceedings of the Second ACM SIGCOMM Internet Measurement Workshop (IMW '02), pp. 183-195, Nov. 2002 Any inputs that I can get regarding this will be very helpful.
