In the planning stages for an OSPF deployment, which step can be taken to reduce router overhead by limiting the size of the link state databases, and LSA Type 1 and Type 2 propagation?
- Increase hello and dead interval timers.
- Divide the OSPF network into multiple areas.
- Use redundant links and alternate paths between routers.
- Ensure that the interfaces of all routers are configured for area 0.
Answers Explanation & Hints:
As OSPF areas grow in size, the size of the LSDB grows and the number of type 1 and type 2 LSAs increases. Breaking an OSPF domain into multiple areas reduces the size of the LSDB and the number type 1 and 2 LSAs in each area.
