In the second post in this series, we considered the use of IGP-Prefix segments to carry a flow along a specific path in a data center fabric. Specifically, we looked at pulling the green flow in this diagram— —along the path [A,F,G,D,E]. Let’s assume this single flow is an elephant flow that we’re trying to…
