Study Cards on bgp, route, network

How does the individual BGP router entries to its local database? 3
-Network command
-Topology information through an update message from a neighbor
-Redistributing from other routing protocol
What can the BGP redistribute subcommand redistribute? 3
-redistribute static
-IPG learned routes
What does BGP assign when a route with a metric is injected to BGP?
BGP assigns metric value from routing protocol to the BGP Multi-Exit Discriminator (MED) PA
What is the impact of the auto-summary command on redistribute routes?
If any subnets of a classfull network would be restribute, do not redistribute, but instead redistribute a route for the classfull network
What is the impact of the auto-summary command on the network command?
if a network command lists a classful network number, with the classful default mask or no mask, and any subnets of the classful network exists, inject a route for the classful network.
When you inject a default route into BGP using network command. What is required? must exist in routing table
(config-router)#network is required
What does the command Neighbor neighbor-id default-originate [route-map route-map-name] do?
Does not add default route to local BGP table
Add default route to specific neighbor

With route-map option, the reference route-map examines entries  in the IP routing table, if a route map clause is matched the default route is advertised to the neighbor.
What are the three main parts of the BGP update message?
-The Withdrawn (teruggetrokken) routes field enables BGP to inform its neighbors about failed routes
-Path Attributes field lists PA for each route (NEXT_HOP and AS_PATH)
-Prefix and Prefix lengt field (NLRI)
When are separated BGP update messages necessay?
When there's at least one different PA for a NLRI
What does the output column State/PfxRcd mean using the command show ip bgp summary command?
Number of NLRI's recieved from neighbor
Each BGP route's NEXT_HOP must be reachable for a route to be truly valid.
How can you configure this for iBGP?
-Make the eBGP neighbor's address reachable by advertising that subnet into the IGP
-Use the next-hop-self option on the neighbor command that points to iBGP peers
What are the rules for a BGP router to send routes in its update messages? 4
-Send only the best route listed in the BGP table
-To ibgp neighbors, do not advertise paths learned form other iBGP neighbors
-Do not advertise suppressed or dampened routes
-Dot not advertise routes filtered through configurations
