A Study of Packet Delivery Performance during Routing Convergence

  title={A Study of Packet Delivery Performance during Routing Convergence},
  author={Dan Pei and Lan Wang and Daniel Massey and Shyhtsun Felix Wu and Lixia Zhang},
Internet measurements have shown that network failures happen frequently, and that existing routing protocols can take multiple seconds, or even minutes, to converge after a failure. During these routing convergence periods, some packets may already be en-route to their destinations and new packets may be sent. These in-flight packets can encounter routing loops, delays, and losses. However, little is known about how many packets are delivered (or not delivered) during routing convergence… CONTINUE READING
