Hi all, Happy New Year!
I'm seeking a bit of clarification on the show iproute command output.
I have an x450-e which was getting close to the hardware limit of 464 routes so I've turned on route compression.
I have a default route learned via OSPF from the same gateway as most of my other routes so my iproute summary now looks like this....
Slot-1 NET-ESXSTACK.6 # sh ipr sum
1 default routes 19 routes at length 21
18 routes at length 23 189 routes at length 24
34 routes at length 25 23 routes at length 26
50 routes at length 27 2 routes at length 28
1 routes at length 29 30 routes at length 30
31 routes at length 32
Route origin distribution:
176 OSPFExt1 210 OSPFIntra 12 Direct
Total number of routes = 398
Total number of compressed routes = 383
Slot-1 NET-ESXSTACK.7 #
Could anyone confirm that this actually means I've now only got 15 hardware routes and hence, loads of spare hardware route capacity?
