RE: MD5 BGP performance on a VXR?
Ben, My first question would be how big is your prefix list per BGP session? What is really going to task this router with 25 sessions is the BGP Scanner and BGP Router processes. To my knowledge MD5 is just for authenticating the session. I could be wrong.

Has anyone done any concrete testing on how well a 7206VXR with an NPE-300 can handle BGP MD5? The box in question has about 25 sessions and is pushing 150Mbps, with a 75% cpu load. I'm curious to know if it's the MD5 taking all the CPU.
