Thanks for providing the commands.

I got the commands to change the max routes for protocol.

mls cef maximum-routes ip 100.

I have one more query.If i allocate all routes Max to IP protocol & i am going to use for only to hold BGP Routes.

Is there any issue if i allocate Maximum to IP protocol.Below is the output after i allocate max to IP protocol.

Router#sh mls cef maximum-routes

FIB TCAM maximum routes :


Current :-


IPv4 - 1007k

MPLS - 1k (default)

IPv6 + IP Multicast - 8k (default)

I advise you to stay it as it is.

it's enough for holding BGP Routes.
