Re: minimum requirements for a full bgp feed

36xx or 72xx
 
Old != bad .
 
All you need is MEMORY = >= 256 Mb.

Well,
 
In my experience it depends on the model of router.  I had a 3640 (granted, it's old) with 128MB that was just fine until a couple of months ago, now it's not enough.  For one BGP table you will have to have at least 256MB in a 36xx router.  Our 720xVXR routers currently have 256MB in them as well, but we've already ordered upgrades to 1GB with new NPE-G1s...

Hello All,

If I wish to purchase a Cisco router that handles a full internet BGP feed what are the minimum specs I should be looking at?
