I have VyOS 1.2.0-rolling+201811170337 running over 60 days. so far no issues. could it be something you’re running and I’m not?

Could this have been related to the BGP Experiments that were being run and discussed on NANOG?

There was HUGE discussion about it:


I don’t think it’s related. We have received a few reports about that, while others with similar configs have no issues at all. As far as I know there is already a direct contact established between the frr team and vyos.
I tried to reproduce it a few times, but weren’t successful doing so, so very hard to analyze.
