I would like to ask here, because I have no experience from BGP at all. We are having a MikroTik CCR1009-7G-1C-1S+ in a datacenter and we want to advertise a /24 IPv4 block and a /29 IPv6 block via our own router and our own ASN.
The datacenter will announce our end a full BGP table and they advised us to make sure that our router can handle it.
I have two major questions:
1. First of all if the router we have is able to handle this. I have heard that the BGP is hungry for CPU. Can you advise me on this issue? Do you think I need a better router or can I do my job with it? And if so, which one do you recommend?
2. What do I need to do this configuration. Since I have no experience with BGP, do you know where I could find a tutorial or a good guide to learn how to set up this service on MikroTik?
Thank you very much in advance for your time and your valuable help.
With kind regards,
