If I am using confederations, how does the as_confed_sequence affect path selection?


In particular:


1. Is the as_confed_sequence computed as part of the as-path length?


2. If I have the following four routes as, what is the order of preference?


a. 999


b. (65001) 999


c. (65002 65001) 999


d. (65003 65002 65001) 999

as_confed_sequence has a length of

zero in as-path length calcuation.


2. If I have the following four routes as, what is the order of preference?


In term of as-path attribute, they

all have the same length.
