Global Route Collector

The global route collector is a common resource for collecting route data from across the DN42 network.
This data can then be used to provide statistics and a global map of the DN42 network.

Providing Routes to the Collector

All DN42 users are invited to provide routes to the collector; the more users that take part, the more useful the collector becomes.

The collector runs bird2 and supports multiprotocol BGP; the preference is for multiprotocol peering over IPv6.
If you are unable to support multiprotocol BGP, please provide both IPv4 and IPv6 peer addresses.

  • Configure a BGP session for the collector on your router.

Some example client configurations are included in the 'examples' directory.
Users are encouraged to configure the BGP Add-Path extension to provide a comprehensive set of routes to the collector.
