Does the RIS collect full routing tables from its peers?
Yes, but not always. The RIS route collectors receive both full routing tables and partial views, depending on the peer. We try to maintain a balance between full tables and partial views in every location where RIS is present. This means that a broad view of the routes seen at that location is available while not overloading the route collector. The Route Collector in Amsterdam (RRC00) receives only full routing tables from its multi-hop BGP peers.
