Re: Weekly Routing Table Report

  • From: Daniel Golding
  • Date: Fri Jan 07 21:21:42 2005


How much has the second number changed? Is this the result of worsening
aggregation or simply more address space being advertised?

Core routers won't even blink at 200k routes. I wonder how many enterprise
3x00/7x00 routers will fall over due to memory issues.

Also,  as we have learned previously, past routing table growth (especially
for a short period) is an extremely poor predictor of future growth.
