467Re: locked route links
- May 17, 2006No, BPQ32 does not sent connect requests. It does send node
broadcasts however. But it's the receiving side which decides which
ones are of high enough quality to enter into it's own node tables.
That is dependendent upon the receiving sides Locked route quality (if
it has one for the node it is receiving), the default QUALITY (if it
does not have a locked one for the node it is receiving). Then for
those subnodes it receives in such a broadcast the parm MINQUAL
determines if such subnodes will be added to it's tables.
I see that in my example configurations I have MINQUAL equal to
QUALITY. I do so to strictly control what nodes end up in my nodes
tables. This works because I lock routes for the nodes I want at
higher values. As a result I have no nodes in my tables with a Q
lower than QUALITY. You may not want to do it this way. I will as a
test lower MINQUAL to say 168 and see how many entries I end up with
in my nodes tables...might not be too many after all.
I was concerned at one time about too large a nodes table, but I think
that fear is not well founded.
