Thomas mentioned that LPM overlaps the functionality of FIB and RIB libraries.
Is there any plan to deprecate the older LPM libraries.
The RIB library has a better API. But it is slower for large number of routes.
LPM is a space/time tradeoff since it basically computes a full /24 table.
Perhaps DPDK could have one RIB API and different route table algorithms?
