Folks have been mentioning performance loss due to access-lists.
I've never actually been able to observe the performance loss,
even though we have a couple of fairly large access-lists
(ours are on ciscos). I am not saying it isn't there, just that
either it's so small it doesn't make a difference for us, or else
something else is the bottleneck on that segment anyway. :-)
Has anyone here actually had noticeable or problematic
performance degradation due to the processing of access-lists?
If so, what platform and how big was the list? Thanks.

Today's pet peeve: reference to the RCPT command of SMTP as "receipt." It
means "recipient". (See ftp://ftp.sesqui.net/pub/rfc/rfc821.txt, page 20.)
