Hi guys,

I have a very basic question. How many routers can gns3 "handle well" ? I mean can I implement a topology that has, lets say, 100 routers? After going through the video tutorial by Jeremy, I would suspect NO.

Can anywone prove me wrong by suggesting a way to do so ;-)

Thanks in advance

It all depends on:
- your CPU and memory
- features configured on routers (especially IPSec)
- traffic flow on links between routers

And regarding your question: yes, running 100 routers is possible:

But having 100 routers without any link (IMO) makes no sense :)
Using 20 routers connected and makinkg some important things makes far more sense (for me).
And with even 10 routers you can make quite complex topology and test something more valuable than your CPU power :)
