As today's dynamic networks grow in size and complexity, the number of active routing topology states grows exponentially. Advanced routing protocols such as OSPF and BGP are designed to automatically identify and dynamically update the optimal traffic route or path for network traffic based on the current state of your network devices and routing configuration. These protocols, as well as network problems caused by misconfigurations, hardware failures, and software bugs, make it increasingly difficult for the network professional to keep up with the state and topology of network routes. This whitepaper will discuss both manual and automated methodologies for troubleshooting network route related performance issues.
