We do prefix policy filtering on all our routers, and yes it will effect
the time to full reachability of ANY router. What we were talking about
was how long did it take for a GRF to boot up. Someone said it took 10 min
or longer from a cold start for the system boot up. I agreed that the GRF
did take a long time to boot, but that ascend had worked on that and it
boots much faster now.
