The first router that learns of a link-state topology change forwards the
information so that all other routers can use it for updates
Common routing information is sent to all routers in the internetwork. To achieve convergence,
each router learns about its neighbor routers
the name of each neighbor router, the interface status, and the cost of the link to the neighbor
are all learned to acheive convergence
router constructs an LSA packet that lists this information along with new neighbors, changes in link costs, and links that are no longer valid. The LSA packet is then
sent out so that all other routers receive it
When a router receives an LSA, it updates the routing table with the
most recent information
Accumulated data is used to create a map of the internetwork and the SPF algorithm is used to
to calculate the shortest path to other networks
Each time an LSA packet causes a change to the link-state database, SPF recalculates
the best paths and updates the routing table
The three main concerns related to link-state protocols are
Processor overhead
Memory requirements
Bandwidth consumption
