The equipment available today is designed foolishly --
route update processing and actual packet processing should NEVER be done by
the same CPU -- but it is -- and as such you're dead when this happens.
Lest anyone believe this, it's bullshit.
Karl just buys low end gear and then complains because it's not high
I suppose that a 7000 with a SSP is considered "low end" gear then?
It was *Vadim* who was complaining about CPU usage on your boxes, not me.

Would you please refrain from attributing to me the things i did not say?
Particularly i never said anything about "actual packet processing
by the same CPU" here.
I "complained" (heh i do not _complain_, i simply state the facts) about
CPU usage by BGP updates.
