Gated doesn't have to be faster when the router is routing OC3s than
when it's routing 56ks...
I assume that the mondo-routers have a switching engine, and the
only job of the main CPU/gated combo is to feed the current idea
of the best next-hop/interface to the engine.
This is true. But show me a model in which this works and which can update
that forwarding table 20x/second (at full load WHILE switching packets).
That's what Netstar claims.
CISCO can't even *dream* of getting close to this level of performance.
