There are no congestion issues between 6461 and 1668 at this time.
If someone believes there is a problem please have them contact me
off list so I can look into it.

I can make no comment on the volume of traffic, having no idea what
volume is involved.

If you consider the paths that are available for a moment, I think
most people can deduce why they are choosing the Level 3 path, and
it has nothing to do with performance.
