Hello everybody,
I am using C7206 VXR NPE-G2 routers as BRAS in my network and the current
IOS is *c7200p-adventerprisek9-mz.124-24.T.bin* on them.
Also their memory upgraded to 2GB instead of 1GB.
And I have near 6500 online user on each of my BRAS and there is no
speciefic feature except aaa with radius and ordinary features.
There router is also terminating dot1q too because my PSTN centers traffic
comes through dot1q vlans to BRAS es.
I think I have some problem with current IOS, My CPU Usage is abnormal and
Its near %70 or %80.
And when I have a network problem and some of PSTN centers goes down CPU go
to %99 and it gets problem to recovery.
Do you know any good IOS for me as a service provider to use?
I heard that some service providers have near 8000 online user on 7206.
