I think the real quesiton is: Based on the increased performance of routers these days.. most people running BGP aren't using a 2500 or AGS+ anymore, or at least not getting a full routing table on them. Is bgp dampening really necessary anymore? Obviously we should dampen people that flap a high number of times in an hour, but the vast majority of the internet operates in a state where dampening causes more pain than benifit, imho. - jared -- Jared Mauch | pgp key available via finger from jared@xxxxxxxxxxxxxxx clue++; | http://puck.nether.net/~jared/ My statements are only mine.
