RIPE database does not control the actual routing.
Nor does any other registry today.
Sorry, this is factually wrong. Merit PRDB does control
ANS routing. That is the only reason why it is used at all.
I'm not sure the current RADB project has any mention
of real-time updates of gated from the database.
With dozens of updates we do every day it nearly as good
The last customer request was for 5 minute intervals, which
is well within the existing bounds for BGP convergance time,
at least as reported by you for at least one Sprint box.
Did i mention that resetting BGP every 5 minutes is a sure way
to KILL internet?
It got to be incremental updates, not the "generate gated config
and then reload it entirely".
Following Dales comment, each provider may set its own parameters
on generation of configurations, regardless of where it gets
its data from.
Sorry, the only available technology today is heavily taxed
even w/o doing massive filtering.
