OSPF ABR Functions

Hello,

I have few OSPF questions regarding ABR.

Which are OSPF ABR functions:

- flooding Summary LSAs to connected areas?

- flooding ASBR Summary LSAs to connected areas?

- flooding NSSA External LSAs to Area 0?

- performing summarization on routes headed to Area 0?

Thanks!

ABRs:

ABRs:

  • flood LSA-5 to other Area 
  • create and inject in Area 0 LSA-3 and LSA-4 for non-backbone area  (discovering ASBR checking info in LSA-1)
  • flood LSA-3 and LSA-4 from Area 0 to non-backbone areas changing metric and Advertising Router Id
  • make LSA-7 to 5 translation
  • create LSA-3 for default route and inject it in stub areas

Moreover ABRs might are used to terminate virtual-link for non backbone areas not directly connected to Area 0

Bye,
