Improvements to the RMTI network routing daemon implementation and preparation of a public release

  • Routing with Metric based Topology Investigation (RMTI) is an algorithm meant to extend distance-vector routing protocols. It is under research and development at the University of Koblenz-Landau since 1999 and currently implemented on top of the well-known Routing Information Protocol (RIP). Around midyear 2009, the latest implementation of RMTI included a lot of deprecated functionality. Because of this, the first goal of this thesis was the reduction of the codebase to a minimum. Beside a lot of reorganization and a general cleanup, this mainly involved the removal of some no longer needed modes as well as the separation of the formerly mandatory XTPeer test environment. During the second part, many test series were carried out in order to ensure the correctness of the latest RMTI implementation. A replacement for XTPeer was needed and several new ways of testing were explored. In conjunction with this thesis, the RMTI source code was finally released to the public under a free software license.
