Death of the net traced to aversion to workstations

Apples and oranges, probably, but Digital's routers in Palo Alto (a
pair of AlphaStation 200s, each with 128MB of memory and a pair of
FDDI boards) have a kernel routing table size of 8735 Kbytes (9178
Kbytes peak). The virtual size of the gated process is 27.9Mbytes. We
get full routing tables from Alternet and BBN Planet, and however many

It sounds like the tables can get a whole lot larger before you even have to
add more memory. It also sounds like the routing table itself would fit
in just about any router.

I wonder if this gives anyone any ideas as to how one might avoid near term
restrictions on the number of routes and still use current router

PS - as mentioned before, you can put 16 million routes in 8-16MB of memory
if you do it right.
