Re: Has PSI been assigned network 1?

well, I meant of course calculating routes and routing (user, 
payload, actual usage) traffic, not announcing tables.

how about: one cpu for doing topology( including receiving and sending 
data related to that task), and (while <value of one> smaller than 
enough) one++ for doing traffic 
over that topology (where again traffic is 'user' traffic, not only and 
not excluding route announcements).

.... sorry that ny phrase cited below was not mathematically, logically, 
or legally a one-one expression. ( anyways, the inverse would be then no 
outdated monolithic design is not one cpu does nothing, right?)

                      ... yes, <value of enough> is 
probably time limited approximated but never reached

.............still like the thread header! since someone complained (was 
that on this list here?), nobody dares transiting this discussion to a 
new thread.  ;-)
