Intra-domain traffic engineering is essential for the operation of an Internet Service Provider. Demand-oblivious routing  promises excellent performance guarantee with changing and uncertain traffic demands. However, it is difficult to implement it. We investigate an efficient and deployable implementation of oblivious routing. We study its performance by both numerical experiments and simulation. The performance study shows that the multipath implementation achieves a close approximation to oblivious routing , especially when approximate knowledge of traffic is available. The study also shows its robustness under varying traffic demands, link failures and an adversary attack. Its performance is excellent even with a 100% error in traffic estimation.
