Opinions on Nexus 3K support for full BGP feed

Hi All,

 

I've been looking for some documentation on the Nexus 3Ks support for BGP. I understand BGP is supported with the Enterprise license, but I am concerned about the 3Ks ability to handle a full BGP feed? 

 

Thank you, Pat

Re: Opinions on Nexus 3K support for full BGP feed

Hi Pat, 

 

According with verified scalability is not possible. BGP full has around 700000 IPV4 routes.

For all my customers, I every ask the same question. You really need all internet routes?
If you are not a ISP, probably you don't need.
Partial routes (2 or 3 AS PATHS ) plus default route maybe solve your problem.

 

Regards,
