Indeed, however there are some other features currently missing from the Arista stack that sort of take it off the table (granted, those features have been promised early-ish next year).

Curious if the BCM (or whatever other chip) can do this, and if not, if any of the box vendors have tried to find a way to get these things to do a bunch of NAT - say some flavour of NAT, line-rate @ 10G. If so, anyone know of a NOS that has support for it? OcNOS, Cumulus Linux, PicOS and Switch Light OS seem to have none, but not sure if there are others out there.
