Routers and forwarders in a router domain would likely have different amount of hardware Resources. The least capable switch should not hold the performance of the Router network domain to ransom. This write up lists some smart choices the forwarders and routers in the Router domain can make to most efficiently utilize the hardware forwarding capabilities of each node in the network. In a Router domain, all forwarders and routers belonging to a single Router domain keep every other Forwarder or router updated of all the host routes for each host known and present in the network.
