Re: BGP and memory size

7206s need 64MB, in my experience, to take even one full view.
4x00s are more than fine.

Something about I/O memory allocation, though even *that* doesn't
fully explain it.

The box seems to perform very well as a super-POP router, however.


I hope the smiley face was omitted accidentally!

The bug report was junked (by the way, we don't junk legitimate
bug reports) because the router in question was a 7200 with 32M
of memory taking full routing from several peers.  It simply
didn't have enough memory.  There was no evidence of a memory leak.
Needless to say, if there had been a leak, it would have
had high priority.

The gent who opened the bug report in the first place was 
"unfamiliar" with the environment. :-)

Perhaps Cisco is just trying to force us to buy more memory:

  There appears to be a Memory Leak in BGP Router Process.

Notice the State.  It is J - which stands for Junked - which means they
will not fix this since it isn't viewed as an important problem.
