    • Hi,
      A very informal survey...
      Out of curiosity, of those ISPs who are running with full tables out
      there, can you tell me how hard your routers are working (e.g., % CPU
      utilization) and what kind of routers they are?
      To start: APNIC has a PC Unix box for a router (Pentium 100 Mhz, 64 MB
      memory, FDDI connection to NSPIXP-2) and CPU load of the gated process
      is around 0.05% (22 MByte memory image -- I'm seeing around 48K
      routes).  Of course, since we aren't switching too many packets,
      APNIC's info isn't particularly relevant...
      This is purely for informational purposes -- please send me mail and
      I'll summarize (or keep confidential if you'd prefer)...
