Hi Carl,

A switch or router can keep on forwarding the packets untill it experience some physical or logical problem. There is no limitation in terms of number of packets. These network devices are to be up all the times.

*Pls Rate if it Helps*

Hi Carl,

the data sheets will specify the forwarding rates for switches (in packets per second). Rates vary according to the switch models and supervisor cards used.
