Plethora of UUnet outages and instabilities

Why wouldn't upgrading the router's CPU or splitting the load between two
separate routers solve the problem? Maybe that's not an overnight
solution [unless you have spare RSPs in the POP/colo point] but it seems
pretty straight forward to me.


Probably because the CPU that's overloaded is not the primary Cisco
processor, but an RSP board or somesuch. When you have customers coming
into Frame Relay switches, it's not so easy to just move customers between
HSSI's without just overloading another router.
