Hi, I've just acquired a pair of 4948 and need to do multihoming with two different carriers. Just now I've seen that the FIP table in the 4948 (Gbe, not 10GbE) is limited to 32000 entries. My questions are:
1.- Given that the full BGP internet table is about 200000 entries, ?what will happen if I try to do full transit with these machines?
2.- Would it be possible to take the full transit table and filter AS-paths just for the entries originated in each of the carriers to reduce them so they fit int the FIB? Or the filtering process would eat up all the resources from the machine?
