We've brought this concern up to Cisco before and they assured us that
everything is performing normally. You will see this when performing
router to router pings as well however, we have been told that packet
forwarding does not suffer. ICMP replies from the router (not through
the router) are given a very low CPU priority.

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 ?


Dear Rob;

I said nothing about pings. The router is freezing (or at least slowing a lot) every
67.5 +- 3 seconds. We this for both inbound and outbound - outbound things are
buffered but inbound they seem to be lost.
