Given how pervasive BGP is in all (most of?) our lives, any tips/tricks/advice/examples
would only be of benefit to the community as a whole. Even if it doesn’t affect/influence
the majority, we can all benefit from good neighbours.

We have recently made some major changes at $DAYJOB with our connectivity to the outside
world and our peering.
One of the things we have taken on is a 1Gbps APE peering port and Upgraded out WIX port
While I find often our inbound traffic takes a fairly efficient path (usually - tho
$TRANSITPROVIDER seems to cut prepends and possibly even disaggregates some prefixes (tho
this could be something hanging around)) our outbound does seem to be less efficient,
especially where APE is concerned.
I am currently testing an adaption where I only accept shorter prefixes from
$TRANSITPROVIDER and a default route (to avoid blackholing) the domestic transit doesn’t
have a “default route” option and I want to avoid pushing domestic traffic over
International if it only has a long prefix to match and isn’t peered.
Would anyone be willing to provide me some tips / tricks / advise / examples of what they
do with BGP (or some good resources) that I can use to improve the routing table I use in
Also does anyone have NZ Provider looking glass servers (not the NZIX as I know and use
them) where I can see how other domestic providers see my announced routes and how it
appears to them (so I can make changes and test but also see what I am being seen as)?
Thank you very much in advance for any help. Off list replies are welcomed and possibly
better to avoid clogging up the list if people think this is too basic a request for
