while arguing routing with a friend of mine, we got to the point where
the number of interfaces on a router was a point of contention. now
certainly routing depends not only on the number of interfaces a
router has, but also on the number of next-hop gateways it need to
keep track of.
that said, i'd like to just ask: what's the largest number of
interfaces anyone has on any of their routers? i was arguing that
high end routes would probably have maybe a few hundred. my friend
was arguing in terms of theoretical limits and thought it was more
like tens of thousands.
max interfaces? max next-hop gateways?
