Cisco 2610 BGP

Hey guys, Since my inception with Cogent I've had TONS OF FUN!!!!! Saracastic. I am thinking about bringing in another T1 from another provider and bringing my full T1 from Cogent down to server as a secondary line.

My main question regarding BGP is can my 2610 handle it? I'm 99.9% sure that it can. Will BGP work correctly if I have two WIC's in the

2610 with each ISP on a WIC? So if Serial 0 goes down BGP routes all traffic to serial 1.

Thank you in advance.

Also how quick should the changeover be?

How much memory does the 2610 currently have installed? What version of IOS are you using? Please post a "show version" and "show proc mem". This question is too general to answer, because bgp requires a lot of memory to function. Without knowing how much memory you have its hard to answer. BGP needs memory for a BGP table with all the attribute information, IP Rib for BGP learned prefixes, and CEF table for BGP learned prefixes. This can add up to a lot of memory. If you are bringing in two full feeds you may not have enough memory to support this configuration.

Have the provider send you a def route instead of the full bgp table. Way less memory needed.
