15 September, 2022 by firstname.lastname@example.org | openbsd
We have released OpenBGPD 7.6, which will be arriving in the OpenBGPD directory of your local OpenBSD mirror soon. This release includes the following changes to the previous release: * Include OpenBSD 7.1 errata 008: bgpd(8) could fail to invalidate nexthops and incorrectly leave them in the FIB or Adj-RIB-Out. * Speedup bgpctl show rib 10/8 or-longer and show rib 10/8 or-shorter * Switch various static hash tables to RB trees improving performance on large systems * Export per neighbor pending update and withdraw statistics * Fix race between a neighbor session reset and its update message backlog * Improve handling of nexthop reachability state changes * Further improve portability of the FIB handling code OpenBGPD-portable is known to compile and run on FreeBSD, and the Linux distributions Alpine, Debian, Fedora, RHEL/CentOS and Ubuntu. It is our hope that packagers take interest and help adapt OpenBGPD-portable to more distributions. We welcome feedback and improvements from the broader community. Thanks to all of the contributors who helped make this release possible.
