i have some query about EARL.
- as it says it is central processing engine, is it software in to cisco switch or hardware.?
- can we say EARL is the engine who manages CAM TABLE.? as it says it stores mac relationship.
- is EARL for all the family of Cisco switch.?
EARL is an ASIC on CAT5k and CAT6k only. Other switches use different ASIC for same purpose. No cisco switches use IOS to perform this job.
