Multi Area OSPF: Backbone Area
In a blog post about Multi Area OSPF we went over some pros of having multiple OSPF areas in your network.
- Reduce the size of the routing tables. Each OSPF area can contain multiple Routers and cover a portion of a network that can be summarized.
- Reduce traffic between different parts of a network
- Reduce execution of Shortest Path First algorithm
Nothing really special, but can easily be extended to meet your needs. Also, I decided to use background-position animations because it's not that common to find them online. And they're certainly not common like fade-type animations.
Continuing from a previous blog post about OSPF where we explored Multi Area OSPF, let's take a look at a cool OSPF feature: Stubby Areas.
There are sites inside the network that need to send the packets to the Internet. All such packets need to arrive at the router connected to the Internet.
Also, if routers want to communicate to the other area they must send the packets to the ABR, meaning they can use the default route to do that.
This article is second in a series about eZ Publish CMS. It continues our exploration where the article about installation left off. It will deal with the first steps after eZ Publish installation.
We'll customize our site a bit and alter it's appearance. To do that we'll first do some basic eZ Publish configuration and then we'll create a new eZ Publish extension.
Continuing from a previous blog post about OSPF, in this blog post I will try to show you some advantages of having multiple OSPF areas, and then we'll design and configure our network with a couple of areas.
