OpenBSD "I started OpenBGP two years ago, after getting completely fed up with Zebra, which we were running before. There were lots of bugs, bad configuration language, performance problems, and since I don't speak Japanese - I had problems understanding the documentation. Zebra makes heavy use of cooperative threads, which leads to it's main problem: combined with the central event queue, Zebra can lose sessions while busy. Zebra successor, Quagga, caught up and apparently fixed many of the bugs. However, they still used the Zebra's design, which I think is wrong. So, the issues are kind of unfixable."

Member since:

I disagree. I find the IOS (and Zebra/Quagga) interface to be a royal pain in the butt to work with. They're pretty much the worst interfaces ever designed.

"Besides quagga includes RIP, OSPF and BGP daemons. OpenBGPd is a single daemon."
Do you have a point other than stating the obvious?
