No. It was more of a general question of what type of memory failure is
acceptable and will we pay premium for product which has more graceful

I recently ran into (likely) memory issue which caused sporadic corruption in
IP header, had it occurred anywhere else than IP headers or were we IPv6 only,
it would have been invisible to me. Is there 98.7% probability that some kit
in my network is currently corrupting packets outside header?
