So we know about the memory constraint on the 3BXLs but what happens if the
memory usage actually hits 90%?  Will the SUP still allow VTY sessions?   I
know on the NPEs for the 7200s once 90% is reached the router will
rejecting all VTY attempts.

Well, I'm not the IX operator, I'm just a participant - and it's
helpful to know for sure *who* is sending you that extra 10G traffic that
is filling your link with spoofed-source traffic -> read: some sort of MAC
referencing (MAC acct or netflow-with-MAC) is needed.

People have suggested using passive fiber TAPs and offload MAC acct to
a PC, but that's totally non-scalable when you go to multi-10G

(Other vendors do not particularily excel in this space either)

USENET is *not* the non-clickable part of WWW!
