[OLSR-users] routing if hna (0.0.0.0) is < 3 hops and host is > 5 hops
Wed Jul 13 01:35:44 CEST 2005
I have a suggestion that seems would be best in my scenario.
Consider a network with multiple hna nodes to the internet (0.0.0.0).
I want to ping host3 which 6 hops away from me. I am 2 hops from an
HNA node and host3 is 1 hop away from another HNA node. Perhaps we
could configure nodes to route these packets over the internet (or
whatever hna to hna is) instead of taking a 6 hop route directly over
This would of course be a parameter you configure on the hna nodes.
It seems this would effectively erase all routes greater then X number
of hops if other nodes were closer to another HNA node?
On each HNA node you could have a link cost parameter which is
relative to the cost of using a 6+ hop path on the mesh, or going
directly over the internet...
This would sure help routing table sizes in mesh networks...
Please comment, improvise :)
