    bgp routing


    I have a dell poweredge 2850 with 4 gigs of ram...
    can i sucesfully make it a bgp/traffic shaping router...if
    i have 2 isp's conected to me ?
    one of them is conected through a gigabit link...the other 100 megabit....
    one of them gives me the global routing table (aprox 265000 routes)and the other gives me only a default route...
    Both of the isp's give me the metro tabe separately witch is about 15000 routes between them.
    Both of them give me 2 separate vlans for each bgp(metro and external)
    I use vyatta witch is a debian based linux.

    If I am a bit blurry in the descrition please tell me...

    I thank everyone in advance for the help you might give

    Well, the machine looks powerful. But if I had to decide something like this I would set up a test environment that matches the targeted design and run some heavy load/performance tests in a safe environment without harming anyone else.
