This question isn't whether or not my hardware can handle full routes, it's more of a "how to present it to my boss so he can understand the difference" type question :-)
We have a 3845 that has plenty of RAM (512MB), that I am working on bringing into production. We're currently running partials on a 3640 with 128MB.
What types of things should I consider in switching over to full tables? We're not an ISP, nor doing much hosting at all right now. Most of our external services are VPNs (L2L and Cisco client), and email/webmail.
For now, we're really not getting into lots of the advanced features of the 3845, so full tables are definitely do-able....but I'm not sure I see any great gain to doing it. Partials seem to work fine for us now.
Can anyone help? I'm really just starting to work with BGP, so a lot is still over my head. But I'd like to be able to present pros/cons to my manager in an objective, thought-out way.
