Am I correct in saying that link state protocols (including EIGRP) ONLY send topology information to their neighbors in terms of routing updates. No specific routes are sent like in RIP etc. The protocols run SPF or DUAL on the topology database to find the routes they deem the best. When the topology changes (link goes down etc), the directly connected router will send the new topology info to it's neighbors.
Yes, I suppose my statement is a bit too general. There is too many protocols and they do not function in the same way. I am trying to understand the link state process a bit better in what exactly is actually being exchanged between neighbors. I suppose reading a OSPF or the like white paper won't hurt :)
is a good place to start for EIGRP. The little EIGRP book on Addison-Weseley is a good start, as well, and not so expensive (I think it ususually sells for under $20). For link state protocols, I'd actually start with the IS_IS book out on Addison-Wesley, and then look at the OSPF book on Cisco Press.

Introduction The purpose of this document is to demonstrate the Open
Shortest Path First (OSPF) behavior when the V-bit (Virtual-link bit) is
present in a non-backbone area. The V-bit is signaled in Type-1 LSA only
if the router is the endpoint of one or ...
Hi, I am seeing quite a few issues with patch install and wanted to
share my experience and workaround to this. Login to admin via CLI, then
access root with the “shell” command Issue “df –h” and you’ll probably
see the following directory full or nearly ...
