512K IPv4 Routes: The New Normal
Dyn's Chief Scientist, Jim Cowie, presents "512K IPv4 Routes: The New Normal" at NANOG 62. 512K relates to the discovery by multiple Internet routers that there is a default software limit of 512K IPv4 BGP routing table entries. Hitting this limit (which actually ranges from 512,000 to 524,288), has caused outages at various data centers. Jim Cowie looks into when 512K day will happen (if it hasn't already!).
