Cool, very cool (why? see below).
Our peers were notified of this change on Friday morning last
week (AS4768 included).
I only see a request for 22.214.171.124/20 --- not the entire supernet.
There is no guarantee people will automagically see aggregatable
chunks and do the aggregation themselves.
I also note we receive this from 4763 (makes sense)
not in their filter list either...
I'll get that checked, thanks for pointing it out.
Oh, I wouldn't look too hard, it's already sorted in the 4768
Something I'd like to point out here, what Paradise is doing is a
_really_ good thing. Speaking from experience with 4768 we have tried
really hard to only advertise the supernets with as little
fragmentation as possible --- Paradise clearly are also putting in
some effort here as have 4763.
However, if you look at much of the NZ address space, its apparent
most people either have no idea what they are doing or choose to be
lazy (probably a bit of both) --- there are pleny of supernets which
are advertised only as itsy bitsy little chunks, despite pleas that
people address this situation (as either general messages such as
this one or directed private requests).
There are even those who choose to use the same ASN for completely
different, but connected, autonomous systems (whether this is a good
thing or not I'll leave for another thread) which makes trouble
shooting extremely difficult (i.e. why does one AS<blah> router do X
when another does Y sort of thing?).
Anyhow, if this air of what could be construed as negativity, I would
like to thank Mark and those others involved for putting the effort
into doing this the 'right way' --- all these small efforts add up an
make things much easier long term.
