In the last week, our WAN routers have seen spikes in BGP prefixes at around 5 am EST. But, for the last two years, we have seen only an average of 224,700 prefixes. So, why the spike? Also, what do people recommend we increase the limit to? In the meantime, I have set the restart to 20 minutes.
See example, below
Aug 24 04:48:20 XXX.XXX.XXX.XXX 286707: Aug 24 04:48:12.564: %BGP-3-MAXPFXEXCEED: No. of prefix received from ZZZ.ZZ.ZZZ.ZZZ (afi 0): 225001 exceed limit 225000
