After convergence the CPU in any distributed switching
framework should be a function of the routing algorithms
and the amount of background noise.

However, to close off the nit-pick, the RP in the GSR
seems to perform spectacularly well even under unusually
heavy routing load.

This is great as long as there is no need to replace the
RP before a replacement is technologically feasible...
