There is nothing to summarize away from global BGP table, if you have number
showing less, it's probably counter bug or misinterpretation.
Global BGP table, single BGP feed, will take same amount of RIB and FIB.
You can see your FIB use in 'show plat hard capa pfc':
#show platform hardware capacity pfc
Module FIB TCAM usage: Total Used %Used
2 72 bits (IPv4, MPLS, EoM) 884736 712819 81%
144 bits (IP mcast, IPv6) 81920 19235 23%
You're probably bit better off than I am :)
