Any ideas what changed? :)  Wish there was some sort of changelog..
# of messages per second seems consistent with packets per second on GRE interface.. No impact in routing, but definitely impact in cpu usage for all processes monitoring the route messages.

RTM_MISS is actually fairly common when you don't have a default route.

Messages which get enqueued don't necessarily get delivered -- and very few processes actually listen to the routing socket actively like this, so I wouldn't worry about it.

If it's a real concern for you then you could try hacking in a sysctl to tell the radix trie code not to issue RTM_MISS messages on the routing socket.
