I understand that In the WS-X6724-SFP, a single port ASIC supports 12 local GE ports. But how is ports are distributed accross two ASIC.
IS that 1-12 - ASIC 1 , 13-24 ASIC2
ODD Ports from 1-24 - ASIC 1
Even Ports from 1-24- ASIC 2.
I would like to distribut my access ports to make sure that I have ASIC level redudancy within line card.
Thanks in advance.
I was under impression that 24 ports module has connectivity to only 1 Fiber channel and all ports are connected to same
You are right. I was incorrect in my previous statement. I'm sorry for that. There is one single fiber channel in the 24port model (the link I posted contains such information as well). All ports are sharing the same 20Gbps connection to the backplane.
48 ports has two fiber channel and that has connectivity of odd/even ports.
The 48SFP has the odd/even port allocation. The GE-TX has the split allocation from 1-24 and 25-48.
From the link you and Jon posted:
