BGP Session Culling
With this BCP Internet-Draft we hope to draw some attention to good practises which can be applied by IP networks or IXPs to mitigate negative impact caused by maintenance operations on lower layer networks. The idea is to promote the concept of breaking the control-plane in a controlled fashion, before actually breaking the data-plane.
This is a follow-on from my lightning talk at RIPE67. Since then the idea gained popularity and is applied at more and more IXPs.
