### Summary

Dimitri, Papadimitriou and Albert, Cabellos (2012) Stability Analysis of Path-vector Routing. In {14{\e}mes Rencontres Francophones sur les Aspects Algorithmiques des T{\'e}l{\'e}communications (AlgoTel)}. La Grande Motte, France, may. (Mathieu, Fabien et Hanusse, Nicolas, Eds.) Pages 1-4.

### Abstract

{Most studies on path-vector routing stability have been conducted empirically by means of ad-hoc analysis of BGP data traces. None of them consider prior specification of an analytic method including the use of stability measurement metrics for the systematic analysis of BGP traces and associated meta-processing for determining the local state of the routing system. In this paper, we define a set of metrics that characterize the local stability properties of path-vector routing such as BGP (Border Gateway Protocol). By means of these stability metrics, we propose a method to analyze the effects of BGP policy- and protocol-induced instability on local routers.}
