Glad to hear you like it
When I’m talking about the RIB (Routing Information Base), then I refer to the global routing table (show ip route). There are some discussions about this as some people don’t see this as the RIB.
The way I see it is that different routing protocols have their own “tables”:
- BGP: BGP Table
- OSPF: LSDP
- RIP: Database
The best routes (based on administrative distance) from different routing protocols are placed in the RIB (routing table), and that’s it. Sometimes people like to call the BGP table the BGP “rib”, the OSPF LSDB the “OSPF RIB” etc. This is confusing.
