This list is always tried to keep up to date.

BGP communities

Communitiy Name Description
65535:65281 no-export do not advertise to any eBGP peers (implemented by bird)
65535:65282 no-advertise do not advertise to any BGP peer (implemented by bird)
65535:65283 no-export-subconfed do not advertise to any eBGP peer or to confederation (implemented by bird)

see RFC1997, RFC8642

Large BGP communities

Output communities

202952:1:(1-9) Latency Community, which specifies the maximum latency.
202952:2:(1-9) Bandwidth Community, which specifies the minimum bandwidth.
202952:3:(1-4) Crypto / Encryption Community, which specifies how the transmitted data is encrypted.
202952:4:(1-17) Region BGP communities for route origin (like in the dn42 wiki but subtracted with 40)
202952:5:1 Connection via tunnel with very low latency and few hops or physical connection outside an IXP
202952:5:2 Connection over Internet Exchange Points (Manually or via router server)
202952:5:3 Connection over Tunnel
202952:5:4 Connection over Virtual Internet Exchange Points (Manually or via router server)
202952:5:5 Unknown type

Downstream communities

202952:6:0 Peer does not accept downstream
202952:6:1 Peer accepts downstream with notification
202952:6:2 Peer accepts downstream without notification
202952:7:1 Learned from downstream and should be annouced to upstreams
202952:7:2 Learned from downstream of downstream and should be annouced to upstreams

see Bird communities, Large BGP communities

Input communities

202952:101:1 Can be used with tunnel class 3 or higher. Prevents a lower local_pref from being set due to the tunnel.


The following filters are applied to imported routes:

Every route which belongs to this network has a valid ROA and RPKI entry. If this is not the case, I would be grateful if this could be reported to me.

bgp_med Description
0 default
+ [1-9] * 20 Bandwidth class
+ [1-5] * 50 Connection type

bgp_local_pref Description
0 graceful shutdown
100 default
+ 700 Direct peer (AS path length = 1)
- 200 When direct peer (AS path length = 1) and exported to iBGP
+ 200 Connection type 1 and Direct peer (Exported only to iBGP peers with Connection Type 1 or 2)
+ 50 Connection type 2 and Direct peer (Exported only to iBGP peers with Connection Type 1 or 2)
+ 25 Connection type 3 and Direct peer (Exported only to iBGP peers with Connection Type 1 or 2)
- 20 Connection type 3 or higher and not direct peer
+/- manuel configured For example, in case of latency problems or slow connections.
