You probably don't realize what "realtime" really means (hint: it
doesn't mean "as fast as possible" - even if lots of sales and marketing
people may abuse the word for that meaning).

Of course not since said OLSRD is "only" a routing daemon and a general
"store data locally for whatever endpoints may arrive in sight in
whatever timeframe" application.

Put your data into an email, configure MTAs an all nodes correctly and
let them handle it since SMTP is designed for exactly that purpose - it
is actually what you are really looking for.
