Static routing instead of OSPF

Wed Apr 25, 2018 10:05 pm

I have a ring of 7 routers, running MPLS and VPLS with OSPF routing.
I am picking up high latency issues between two points, so I suspect looping somewhere along the line.
I am thinking about cancelling OSPF routing and just creating static routes, what are your thoughts?

OSPF is incredibly resilient to routing loops unless you're redistributing prefixes and have a config or design issue. It is the backbone of almost every network we work on for MikroTik - whether by itself or as the transport for iBGP and MPLS/LDP.

It sounds like you may have a config or other issue causing looping or otherwise injecting latency. Is the ring based on fiber, copper or RF?

Simple OSPF is better.
