This MSc. thesis in collaboration with VU University Amsterdam, reports on the study to understand how the underlying topology of the Internet influences BGP performance. A highly scalable simulator is used to simulate full-scale AS-level Internet. We found that BGP is sensitive to certain topological characteristics of the Internet, while remain completely unaffected on variation in some other characteristics.
