CCR CPU 100% (firewall) since upgrading from 6.13

I have had my CCR's on 6.13 because its stable for me.
because of the security issue I tried to upgrade to the latest and my CPU stays near 100%, its the firewall process.
This is on both of my boarders.

Would anyone know why this would be?

This link is 500meters, I can see the other side and signal is perfect (-60)

I think it's v4, if I downgrade teh link is stable, put v4 on and its disconnects twice a day or so.

Perhaps v4 is faster in the lab, but it's definitely more sensitive imho.

Re: Stopping or limiting PtP traffic like Bit Torrent

Also, set max tx limits on the AP so he can't send much out.

Best to drop the data before it gets on your network.

Perhaps give him a call and ask him to stop seeding as it is damaging your network?

Hello

I have setup BGP that is working fine.

The problem I have is I want to annonce all my routes (ospf) but when I check that box it spits out all my internal routes also.

I setup a filter and also aggregats but it still advertises the routes I don't want.

Any help would be welcome
