Controlling the impact of BGP policy changes on IP traffic

Hello NANOG,

Jennifer Rexford, Jay Borkenhagen and I have been working on developing
useful traffic engineering techniques for network operators (like
yourselves). Specifically, we've been trying to show how network
operators can tune traffic on outbound links using BGP import policies
while minimizing network instability.

Since the paper we've been working on really is about how to
make your lives easier, we would very much appreciate your comments on the
work. We'd also enjoy learning about other types of tricks that network
operators play to tune traffic flows.{ps,pdf}
