Version 20.0 consists of:

  • OSPFv2 (RFC2328)
  • IPv4 RIB
  • A TOML based configuration system
  • A JSON based User / Operations Interface

The Routing Suite is designed so that each router in the network has an identical configuration. Below is the entire configuration each router requires.

cat /etc/flockrsd/ospfv2.toml
[ospf_v2]
# Place all ethernet interfaces into area 0.0.0.0
[[ospf_v2.area]]
area_id = "0.0.0.0"
[[ospf_v2.area.intf]]
# Match any interfaces that have name starting with "en"
name = "^en"

The User / Operations Interface gives very good observability into the network, presented as JSON output. By design the connection is Read-Only, state can be observed but never changed. The JSON output can be in a human or machine friendly format.
