Quagga is great for smaller implementations, but it doesn't scale very
well. It eats up a lot of CPU, so once you hit a certain number of BGP
peers, it may start intermittently flapping BGP sessions, or even just
crash the bgpd process entirely.
For what numbers? I've two quaggas, ~150 peers each, doing as-path and *full* prefix filtering for each peer (Config is around 9MB). CPU is idle 99.x% mostly ...
