The following metrics are automatically examined in the described order to choose through which peer a prefix is routed:

  1. Direct routes to prefixes belonging to peers are always chosen
  2. The network with the lowest BGP path length
  3. If the Prefix BGP path length is the same accross multiple peers, the network with the lowest latency is chosen

BGP Communities

The following BGP Communities are supported:

ROA Filtering

ROA or Route Origin Authentication is used to validate if the originating AS is allowed to advertise a prefix.
