Impact of Scavenger Policing on CPU ???

Unanswered Question
Nov 9th, 2007

Hi Guys,

With so many policers in use in the scavenger class model, does this impact on the switches CPU? For example, if I configure my access layer 6500 system with 500 users to have a policer on every ingress interface, that will be a lot of policers -500!! could the Sup720 CPU get hit?

Likewise with the 4500's and 3750's ???

I understand the Sacvenger class system. However, I have this CPU worry. If it's all handled in hardware then it's OK?

I have this problem too.

Could you paste me the capture of "show proc cpu" before and after applying the policy?
