Abstract

Route reflection as defined by [2] is a popular way of reducing the full-mesh IBGP peering required by routers running the Border Gateway Protocol [1]. There are cases where a topology built using route reflectors produces persistent loops or does not produce the same results as what one would expect with a full IBGP mesh. This document describes these problems.
