30-Mesh Behaving Badly

      While testing scale-up of full-mesh networks I encountered some Bad Behavior at 30 nodes. (435 connections.)

      On my first try, 15 of the routers died.

      On my second try, no nodes died – but the network never converged. It consumed all available CPU (32 cores) for three minutes, and the 30 routers printed a combined total of more than 1000 radius calculations to their logs by the time I became wrathful and cast them all into the Bitbucket of Woe.


      For reference, those radius calculations are how I decide that the network has converged – everybody has settled down and agreed on the topology and stopped talking about it. The last thing each router prints to its log is a radius calculation, and then it's done. This may happen multiple times for each router, but when the total number of such prints stops changing – the network has converged.


      For 15 or 20 routers, the number of such prints was 20 or 40 or so. When this test exceeded that by 25x, I decided it was never going to quit.


      ...Now looking at the logs to see if I can figure out what was happening...
