I have a question for OSPF flat network design. From the old time material, it is said that it is wise to put no more than 50 nodes in single area. Does it still suit to the current enviroment when powerful router like ASR9000, CRS, GSR are deployed? considering they are based on IOS XR platform with high-performance processor and memory.
Would it be big issue nowadays if there are around 100 nodes with around 150 links to be put in OSPF flat network?
It is more a convergence issue than a router being able to handle the amount of nodes/routers.
In many OSPF area designs, the question of the optimal size of the area (number of nodes and links) is often a primary consideration in specifying the OSPF area boundaries, but does not play as key a role in the campus as it can in a general design. The desire to map the area boundaries to the hierarchical physical design, enforce hierarchical traffic patterns, minimize the convergence times, and maximize the stability of the network are more significant factors in designing the OSPF campus than is optimizing the number of nodes in the area or the number of areas in the network.
Hi, I know the basics for Cisco routers and switches but what I want to
know is, if I set up VTP on a switch, is there a way to send it through
routers to other switches? This will probably end up more hassle than
gain, but it's interesting and cool to pl...
Hi I have this primary configuration on the primary CSR Router in the HA
mode in same AZ but I am not seeing failover to secondary CSR I am
seeing on the backup router that the API call was successful. 10 10 Actv
