I agree, it makes some sense, especially if you are control plane bound.
But, nearly all my routers run between 1% and 10% cpu.
Ymmv. I have feeling that running a bgp rr on cheap / standard / commidity
vm is pretty exotic from a support perspective.
So running a bgp rr on a vm may make sense in theory, but my network
control planes are not too busy and vm bgp is a unique/ exotic support
Your network is probably different
