ASF subversion and git services commented on DISPATCH-10:

Commit 9f232923d120e2421214917268780b4c86cf959d in qpid-dispatch's branch refs/heads/master
from [~tross@redhat.com]
[ https://git-wip-us.apache.org/repos/asf?p=qpid-dispatch.git;h=9f23292 ]

DISPATCH-10 - Added configuration of inter-router cost up to the point of communicating
cost in LSU messages.  Cost is not yet used in computing routes.

> The route computation algorithm has the ability to take link cost into consideration
when choosing best paths. Inter-router links need to be configured with an optional cost metric
that is fed into the routing algorithm.
> Inter-router connection cost is specified in two places in the configuration:  The inter-router
listener and the inter-router connector using a new attribute called "cost".  If the cost
attribute is absent, the cost defaults to 1, the lowest possible cost for an inter-router
> When a connection is established between routers, the Open.properties map will contain
an entry for a non-default cost.  Each side of the connection compares it's cost to the cost
provided by the peer and uses the higher value as the cost for the connection.  There is no
support currently for asymmetric cost (even though the internal routing engine can support
> The cost can be configured to influence the routing algorithm to favor certain inter-router
connections over others, or to identify long-haul connections as having higher cost to keep
the message forwarding for "closest" in a region if there are any consumers in that region.
