Comparing open source routing platforms (posted 2015-02-02)

Over the weekend, I wrote posts about trying out OpenBGPD and BIRD.

Here's a bunch more information about these two and other open source routing software:

Basically, OpenBGPD's filtering system has scalability issues, and it uses a lot of CPU in large deployments. And it concerns me that these mention OpenBGPD 4.8 and 5.0, while the website only has 4.6.

And I guess I have some homework: install Xorp, a Juniper-like open source routing platform.
