Weekly Routing Table Report

How much has the second number changed? Is this the result of worsening
aggregation or simply more address space being advertised?

Core routers won't even blink at 200k routes. I wonder how many enterprise
3x00/7x00 routers will fall over due to memory issues.

Also,  as we have learned previously, past routing table growth (especially
for a short period) is an extremely poor predictor of future growth.
