We've brought this concern up to Cisco before and they assured us that

Seconded.  Ping response times or lack of ping response from routers
signifies *nothing*.  Ditto for traceroutes, &c.  Ping *through* the
router, not *to* the router.

We do streaming, and this causes a freeze up both in and out bound.
In bound there seem to be losses. Outbound all is buffered and nothing is

pinging the router causes a freeze-up?  or the router is freezing up
on bgp updates every n seconds?  platform/release ?
