I've been running two asr1002's in production now on XND2 and so far
(he knocks on wood) they've been stable. Very simple config on my end,
OSPF, BGP with full routes, all interfaces are fixed, IOW, no add on
SPAs. I can push well over 100k PPS on each interface and the boxes
are asleep. My NPE-Gx's would fall over at that rate. All in all, I've
been pleased with them. Now, if I could just jail break the ASR;s and
load JUNOS.... ;)
