Re: What is the limit? (was RE: multi-homing fixes)
| Nonetheless, it's still annoying as hell that Cisco can't just allow a GB | or more of RAM in 5-6 figure router and just be done with that aspect of | it... They used to build boxes with cheap no-ECC, no-parity DRAM and had their fingers blown off by people who started counting the difference between line BER and e2e checksum failures, particularly on faster boards. Now they use well-built ECC SDRAM in general, and retain their fingers. AFAIK they don't forbid anyone from going out and acquiring el-cheapo RAM from other suppliers. A bit-error in a patricia tree can be really yucky. Sean.
