Running BGP on Cisco 3725 with 128 MB DRAM

Our company intend to have a connection to the Internet through a Cisco 3725 router with 128 MB DRAM.

Does anybody known if the memory is enough to run BGP and if it is not sufficient, unless an upgrading, what measures can be taken (filtering on ISP)?

Thanks for your help in advance

128 mem is enough if you only send you routes to the ISP. I have routers connected to the Internet with 128 meg of mem but I am sending my routes to my ISP's only and then using internal routing to handle any outboud traffic to the net. This should work fine for you

Hope this helps

Hi,

If you single-homed i.e peering with a sigle ISP and receiving all the internet routes then 128MB should be enough. But if you are multi-homed i.e connecting to multiple ISP's and receiving all the internet routes then the TAC recommends you to use atleast 256MB of memory. Hope this helps.

Thanks

Mansoor
