I guess the model that comes to mind is something like MAE-West, which at one time was using something like a pair of Sparc-20's to handle several hundred various BGP sessions, and left the packet shuffling to hardware that was designed for the purpose.
I don't think the route server can do hundreds of BGP sessions. I belive the route servers have problems with more than 60 BGP sessions. The limitation is a function of CPU power, memory, and bus architecture. Jeff Haas is the guy to talk to about realistic models for route servers. -- Joseph T.
