Re: BGP aggregate

rfc1997 reads:

If a range of routes is to be aggregated and the resultant aggregates attribute section does not carry the ATOMIC_AGGREGATE attribute, then the resulting aggregate should have a COMMUNITIES path attribute which contains all communities from all of the aggregated routes.

In your case, the use of 'as-set' should result in not carrying the ATOMIC_AGGREGATE all the communities should be present.

In the specific example, no-advertise would take "priority" (because it includes the no-export semantics) in terms of operation.

Re: BGP aggregate

Thanks a lot.

but can I consider that a bgp route with multiple well known communitis will prefer no-advertise than no-export than none ?

And another maybe infant question for consult: for example:An border router receive an ibgp learned route with local_pref is 100 and the same prefix learned from EBGP with none local_pref ,will the local_pref be exclude outside the processing decide for this prefix?



Re: BGP aggregate

I believe the IBGP route will be preferred in this case due to the higher local preference.
