Re: Minimum memory requirements.

Well, it depends on how big the routing table is.It also depends on the type of OSPF design you are making. For example if you have using the hierarchical design using the areas then Stub area or totally stub area routers dont need high memory on them. I would look atleast 128MB DRAM on the routers to run OSPF and other services on it.

Re: Minimum memory requirements.

Hi,

Hard to tell , not knowing type of router nor

other features you want running. :)

The best way is to use Software Advisor:
