[olsr-dev] Question about topology information in standard OLSR ...

I have a question regarding the topology information maintained at each node
in the standard OLSR protocol. In the standard OLSR, does each node know the
entire network topology? For instance, if there are 50 nodes and 75 links in
the network (assuming static network), does each node know about all the 75
links? It would seem unnecessary to maintain information about all links in
the network. I noticed that with the olsrd implementation that the dot_draw
plugin can print the entire network topology. Does this mean, each node
knows the entire network topology? Thanks in advance for the reply.
