    John,

    In O'Reilly's "Cisco Cookbook" they claim that you shouldn't mess with the
    full internet table if your router don't has at least a 100 megs of RAM.
    According to this book each routing prefix consumes about 1 KB, but you need
    to have enough room for routing table, CEF table and BGP table.

  3. With 2 full tables and soft-reconfiguration inbound, go with 256MB of
    DRAM.

  4. Is there still any need for "soft-reconfiguration inbound"? Cisco
    redesigned soft reconfiguration a few years ago so it didn't require the
    receiver to keep extra data.
