why cisco doesn't recommend using the 10Gbps and SFP fiber or UTP uplinks on Cisco Catalyst 6500 and 4500 management Modules?

Does it cause headache on the performance of the supervisor engine or waht is the idea?

thanks for advance, i didn't find it on any ducumentation,

but i work as presales for integrated solution company.

i am getting technical solution from cisco and they always recommend not to use uplink ports on the supervisor engines and use separated modules for providing uplink ports.

my quoestion:does it relay on the performance of the supervisor engine ?

By management modules, you mean supervisors?

If your consider the non-E 4500 chassis with Supervisor Engine V-10GE or Supervisor Engine II-Plus-10GE, that's your option for 10 gig. Or consider the 6500 Supervisor Engine 32 with 2-Port 10 Gigabit Ethernet, wouldn't expect using its uplinks a problem.
