4
* right usage of DBG vs. debug
5
* cleanup debugging calls
6
* logging and tracing; use appropriate log levels
7
* check log calls for trailing newlines
8

    
9
- TOS not supported by kernel -> automatically drop routes with TOS<>0
10

    
11
- fake multipath?
12
- replace all NUM's by expr's
13
- config file: define ipaddr constants?
14
- counters (according to SNMP MIB?)
15
- ifdef out some debugging code?
16
- better memory allocators
17
- default preferences of protocols: prefer BGP over OSPF/RIP external routes?
18
- secondary addresses -> subinterfaces
19
- check if all protocols set proper packet priorities and TTL's.
20

    
21
- better default protocol names
22
- config: comments at end of line -> explicit ';' needed?
23
- remove post-config hooks?
24
- command-line arguments: name of config file
25

    
26
- static: check validity of route destination?
27
- static: device routes
28

    
29
- device: configuration of interface patterns
30

    
31
- filter: logging of dropped routes (?)
32
- limitation of memory consumption: per-process and total (?)
33
- adding of route: check whether all bits not covered by masklen are zero
34
- switch: generate default route only if at least one BGP connection exists (?)
35

    
36
- route recalculation timing + flap dampening (?)
37

    
38
- "generate default route" switch for all IGP's
39

    
40
- Check incoming packets and log errors!!
41

    
42

    
43
RIP
44
~~~
45
	- RIP: export-only and import-only mode?
46
	- drop RIPv1 (Historic protocol)?
47
	- Route Tag
48
	- limit routing table xfer (frequency, only to neighbors)
49
	- multicast on/off (per interface)
50
	- remember routes for all neighbors?
51

    
52
OSPF
53
~~~~
54
	- point-to-point interface with address: advertise as stub network
55
	- static routes: stub networks?
56
	- modes: PtP, PtP-unnumbered, Broadcast, NBMA, point-to-multipoint
57
	- importing of device routes for networks where we don't run OSPF
58
	- tie breaking for equal type 2 ext metrics by using internal (type 1) metric
59
	- SPF tree recalc timing (per-area timers?)
60
	- aggregation: specify network list for each area
61
	- stub area: either no external routes or only default route
62
	- automatic generation of external route tags (RFC1403)
63

    
64

    
65
BGP
66
~~~
67
	- in, local, out RIB
68
	- maxsize=4096
69
	- detection of loops
70
	- aggregation, ATOMIC_AGGREGATE
71
	- communities
72
	- confederations
73
	- attributes must be sorted!
74
	- re-export of NEXT_HOP attribute
75
	- BGP session over currently down interface
76
	- route flap dampening?
77
	- LOCAL_PREF attribute
78
	- error notification received -> log error
79
	- set TTL to 1 (configurable?)
80
	- consulting IGP for next-hop information? (what if it changes?)
81
	- inter-advertisement delay???!
82
	- normalize (sort) incoming AS-SET's
83
	- maximum length of AS paths
84

    
85
	- expected neighbor AS
86
	- hold time
87
	- idle timer after error: initial value, exponential growth, maximum value
88
	- import of IGP routes (use external route tags from OSPF)
