Weekly Routing Table Report

Did we all forget the size of the IPv6 table is nearing a milestone number
in the DFZ? ;)

If you have an older router that can only handle x number of routes in TCAM
less than the current number of routes; what software are you using to keep
it default free?
Or if the sky is really the limit, sell me your most or least expensive
Tbps capable TCAM that will hold a routing table of 3M+ routes IPv4 and
another 3M+ IPv6 without gimmicks or stipulations. (Low or high number of
interfaces, small or god-sized box.)
Let me know why you like what you have, or what you want to have.

Be thankful for your network.

What's in your rack?

Good Luck
