1
Advanced Networks 1. Delayed Internet Routing Convergence 2. The Impact of Internet Policy and Topology on Delayed Routing Convergence

2
The Problem How to Recover from Failure Quickly? Phone systems recover, failover, in milliseconds Internet takes an order of minutes Loss of Connectivity Packet Loss Latency

3
The Problem (cont) Failure over on the internet not very good Sluggish Backup systems Internet has to adjust to the failure Path must be restored to back up

4
The Questions Why does convergence take so long? What is the upper bound for convergence? What causes this delayed convergence? What can we do about it?

5
Theory Unexpected Interaction of: Protocol timers Router Implementation Policies (Safe/Unsafe)

6
Theory (cont) Distance vector algorithm has issues Lack of sufficient info to determine if next hop choice will cause loops

7
Convergence Accelerators Use of Path Vector Split Horizon Triggered updates Diffusion Timers

8
Policies Admins can implement unsafe policies Policies can cause route oscillations Routers default to Shortest Path Even if constrained upper-bound might be as high factorial

9
Point of Paper Measure the convergence behavior of BGP 4 Done for Bellman-Ford O(n 3 ) Convergence in BGP is NOT much better than RIP Give an upper and lower bounds to convergence

10
The Work Done 2 year study 250,000 routing fault injections 25 Internet providers End to End performance measurements

11
Terminology Tup: (New) Route Announcement Tdown: Route Withdrawal Tshort: Shorter Route Replaces Current Current Route is Withdrawn Implicitly Tlong: Shorter Route Replaced with longer one Represents a failure and failover Current Route is Withdrawn Implicitly

12
Latency

13
Latency (cont) Oscillation greater than 3 minutes 20% of Tlong 40% of Tdown Equivalence Latency Classes Tlong,Tdown Tshort,Tup

14
Latency per ISP

15
BGP Update Volume Average Message Per Event Type Tup: Route Announcement Tdown: Route Withdrawal Tshort: Shorter Route Replacement Tlong: Longer Route Replacement

16
Questions Why do Tlong and Tdown cause 2 times the amout of updates? Why do certain ISP produce more updates per event? Relationship between number of updates and convergence latency?

17
Questions (cont) What makes an ISP have a higher latency? Interesting Points ISP3: Japan’s National Backbone ISP5 Canadian ISP Latency NOT Dependant Geographic Distance or Network Distance (aka hop count)

18
Graph Analysis No relationship between day of the week and Latency! Independent of Network load and congestion

19
End to End Measurements Route Oscillation effects performance Drop Packets, Buffering of Packets Out of order delivery

20
Failover from end to end view Time after ICMP echo arrived after Tup Simulates a failover 80% of test sites began returning after 30 seconds 100% after one minute

21
BGP Convergence Model IBGP ignored Full Mesh Ignore ingress and egress filters Exclude MinRouteAdver Updates messages follow FIFO ordering

22
BGP Convergence Example Start: 0(*R, 1R, 2R) 1(0R, *R, 2R) 2(0R, 1R, *R) R Withdraws routes R -> 0 W R -> 1 W R -> 2 W

23
BGP Convergence Example 0(-, -, *2R) 1(-, -, *2R) 2(*01R, 10R, -) 0(-, *1R, 2R) 1(*0R, -, 2R) 2(*0R, 1R, -) 1 and 2 receive new announcement from 0 0 -> 1 01R (loop) 0 -> 2 01R 0(-, *1R, 2R) 1(-, -, *2R) 2(01R, *1R, -) 0 and 2 receive new announcement from 1 1 -> 0 10R (loop) 1 -> 2 10R

24
BGP Convergence Example 0 and 1 receive new announcement from 2 2 -> 0 20R 2 -> 1 20R 0(-, -, -) 1(-, -, *20R) 2(*01R, 10R, -) 0 and 2 receive new announcement from 1 1 -> 0 12R 1 -> 2 12R 0(-, *12R, -) 1(-, -, *20R) 2(*01R, -, -) … 48 steps later 0(-, -, -) 1(-, -, -) 2(-, -, -)

25
Upper Bound For n nodes there exist 0((n-1)!) distinct paths When a route is withdrawn, a new route is found of equal or increasing length Message count could be a bad as (n-1)O((n-1)!) until convergence Not really possible on the internet

26
Lower Bound Made possible by MinRouteAdver timers (n-1) Rounds to convergence

27
MinRouteAdver Minimum time between route advertisements Gives a AS time to pick a good route before announcing it In standard BGP, timer only applied to announcements Does Not apply to explicit withdrawls

28
Example Reloaded Instead of 48 rounds only took 13 rounds

29
Example Reloaded

30
Question Reloaded Why do Tup/Tshort converge quicker than Tdown/Tlong? Answer: Tup/Tshort are decreasing while Tdown/Tlong are increasing One a path is selected a longer one will not be picked While on Tdown/Tlong you pick the next best one until you are out of choices O(1) for Tup while O(n) for Tdown

31
Question Reloaded Why is there different latencies between the five ISPs? Answer: The topological factors, length and number of possible paths (peering relationships, policies and agreements) are the answer. Longer routes announced, longer latencies Longer routes the more MinRouteAdver rounds

32
Loop Detection Loop Detection done at receiver side If done, at sender you can get more out of MinRouteAdver round MinRouteAdver is good but causes a 30 second delay in end to end communication at best

33
Convergence Delay Due to Policies and Topology 2 nd study of convergence 20 unique advertisement between 200 pairs of ISPs, 6 months Measure the impact of Policies Measure the impact of Topology Analysis

34
Multi-home Networks One network, two ISPs Better connectivity + backup Failover = New route convergence Work done in this Paper Convergence Analysis of Tdown event

35
Work Done Fault injection announcements Logged table snapshot to disk Survey of backbone providers Routing and peering policies Used data to discuss impact on convergence

36
Policy How policy impacts number and length of ASPaths with a given route Limited inbound acceptance by all ISP

37
Inbound Filtering Example ISP D filters peering session with ISPG D only accept G’s backbone and customers routes ISP A filters peering session with D A only accept D’s backbone and customers routes ISP A will accepts G’s routes by chaining

38
Outbound Filters A will advertise routes with paths “D G” and “D” but not “C D G” Done by 13% of ISPs Combinations of ASPath and prefix filters create unintentional back-up transit paths

39
Topological Effect Interaction of MinRouteAdver timers MinRouteAdver is per peer not prefix MinRouteAdver interference delays convergence

40
Backup Path Selection

41
