I have iBGP configured between two devices. After the bgp session comes up, the # of routes sent to RouterA from RouterB initially increases to roughly 100k, but then for some reason, it drops down to only 160.
Is there a reason why this would be happening? It's just a simply ibgp configuration on both of the routers.
Neighbor Address AS# State Time Rt:Accepted Filtered Sent ToSend e.e.e.e xxxxx ESTAB 1h34m48s 493723 0 1 0 i.i.i.i xxxx ESTAB 0h 0m19s 301708 0 120998 71776
Neighbor Address AS# State Time Rt:Accepted Filtered Sent ToSend e.e.e.e xxxxx ESTAB 1h35m 4s 493722 0 1 0 i.i.i.i xxxx ESTAB 0h 0m35s 494878 0 150 0
e.e.e.e are the ebgp neigh and i.i.i.i is the ibgp neighbors. As you can see, once the session comes up, the # of routes sent from this router to routerA initially goes high but then drops to ~150.
If you need specific information, please let me know.
