recursive mode - the route obtained by the lookup must not be recursive

Recursive mode is the behavior specified by the BGP
standard. Direct mode is simpler, does not require any routes in a
routing table, and was used in older versions of BIRD, but does not
handle well nontrivial iBGP setups and multihop. Recursive mode is

on tuning TCP performance of local connections. BIRD supports most of these
