It looks like I am facing performance issues on my c7304 having processor NPE-G100.
I have some 100 BGP peers on a peering lan. I am getting at peak time some 600 Mbps from these peers plus 300 Mbps from my ISP. All this aggregate traffic loads almost 100% the 1 Gig interface towards the core of my network.
During non-peak hours load is not so high but still CPU moves all the time around 80 to 90%.
Input errors: plenty of ignored and overrun errors on all 3 interfaces any time of the day.
- does it all sound like I need to upgrade to a bigger box ? which one ?
- anybody is handling this amount of traffic and BGP peers with a c7304 ?
Thanks in advance for your comments.
