I'm having a problem doing NAT translations between Vlans. I have a nat inside vlan with a private segment and a nat outside vlan with a public ip address. The problem I'm having is that at times the CPU of the switch peaks to 100%. I think it's a limitation of the 6500 when it gets to the max nat entries. The process IP NAT ager is the one I have with the most utilization with 80-90%. Here is a show ip nat statistics. The question is what is the max nat entries for the 6500 so I can configure it as the max-entries?
Router#sh ip nat statistics
