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.

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

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.
