Routing Tables of Death - rtod - a kernel, routing protocol, and routing
daemon stress testing tool

https://github.com/dtaht/rtod/blob/master/README.md starts with

rtod: Routing Tables of Death

rtod allows for the rapid injection and removal of large numbers of
distinct routes per host, as a means to test the capabilities of
kernels, routing protocols, and routing daemons.

Do NOT run this on a production network. DO read this documentation.

The rtod script was developed to stress test kernel routing features,
daemons, and protocols as a means to measure their behavior and make
them better.
