For Layer 2 switching, I have no problems with Broadcom at all. Works a
treat, and we are super happy with our Arista switch deployments for this.

That said, we did run into Jericho issues with egress policing, where
the chip runs out of TCAM based on the default EOS profiles. That had to
be fixed and tweaked. Thankfully, we don't need large IP ACL's on a
switching platform.
