Recomputing larger route tables, especially OSPF. Tunneling.
Encryption. Acess list filtering. Finer grain accounting (I'd love to see
usage stats for each interface over a day or so right from the router).
And most important to me, not becoming unusuable during a major routing
How many of us have seen a 7513 take 20 seconds to log into and
then 15 seconds to respond to a command during a circuit outage that
forced a major route recomputation? This is when we most need to see
which BGP sessions, OSPF sessions, and interfaces are still up and maybe
even do a 'show logging'.
