France-IX has launched a campaign in January to check that its members are following FranceIX best practices. Here is a summary of these BCPs:
- Layer 2 protocols must be deactivated on France-IX interface (STP, CDP, FDP, LLDP, etc)
- IPv4 multicast must be deactivated on France-IX interface
-The MTU size should be 1500 bytes
Some scripts have been developed to check if abnormal traffic is being. France-IX is contacting members sending such traffic (IPv6 RA, IPv4 multicast, STP, etc)
Members connected on Routes Servers should have sessions configured with both servers RS1 and RS2 and for both protocols IPv4 and IPv6 in order to have an effective redundancy.
