Well yes, It seems that an IP deny is more process intensive than an IP
permit. I do not claim to know why. I have just seen it myself.

Anyway depending on the attack with large numbers of packets sometimes the
CPU is so high you can get knocked off the router.
I wanted to see if policy routing is less taxing on the router.

With the access-list for a policy route map you have a access-list permit,
so I figured it might be less taxing.

While I have had this problem on different routers the ones I constantly
have it on are Cisco Cat 5000s with RSMs(RSP4). I have tried different
codes, I am currently at 12.04. But it's not a code issue. It's just a
limitation of the router. I just need something less taxing on the router.

I just need to know if anyone has already done this.
