The Sup6T is still TCAM limited.
We are moving to ASR9Ks.
But we have used the ASR1Ks where we need full netflow capture with great success.
The port density and total throughput is not as high as the 6500 though.

Has anyone tried 6T yet?  Does it do useful netflow?

2T had great promises, but vastly underdelivered, so we're halfway ready to just leave the platform completely...
