So, 11.3 anyone?

Hi

So, a potential reason came up for me to possibly run 11.3. I really don't
want to, but I am comtemplating it.

Apparently, 11.3 has code to fast-switch policy-routed networks. Does it
work? Is 11.3 really usable? I am scared to death, but may need this for a
certain application.

we are running policy routing on our 3640 and 7206 machines and we quite fine
without fast switched policy routing. I would only think of using it if
the cpu overhead starts getting unconformatably high.

At the moment we are running 112-11.P without any major tilts.

Hrm. We turned on polcy-routing on a 4700 that was running at abour 40%
CPU. We turned on policy-routing for one interface (a v.35 that was doing
abour 1.2 mb/s) and it jumped up to 60%. I turned it on for a moment on a
HSSI interface that was doing about 3.5 mb/s, and it pegged the machine at
99%.

Anyone aware of any bugs in 11.2(12)P that would effect:

NPE-200
HSSI NPM
4Port Serial NPM
4Port Ethernet NPM
8Port Ethernet NPM
1Port FastEthernet NPM
I/O controller with integrated MII running as FastEthernet0/0
BGP4
OSPF
Flat static routes

I know what the CCO says, but I'm wondering if anyone has any real-life
experience.

Interesting, did they says about ISL DO NOT WORK AT INTEGRATED FAST
ETHERNET or not? Really it do not work in 11.2(11)P and they promise to
fix it in 11.2(13)P.

If so, and you wouldn't mind me asking you a few questions, please send me
a private email.
