I am going to be rolling out some blades to our 6500's. I have done a lot of research but I figured I might as well ping the experienced guys on this one. What considerations should I make before just slapping these things in? For example, what amount of memory should I have on the 6500? What do I need to look at in terms of throughput...should I be putting 2 blades in one chassis to double my throughput...how can I find out? I would like to also know what some of the basic first steps are to getting it inline but only in passive mode. I do not understand how this works with VLANs and portchannels and other stuff I have read that has confused me. The blade doesn't have any ports but I keep hearing that it has 8 ports. Also, I have an accelerator module in one of the blades...does this come with all blades? Any advice you can give for a first-timer would be appreciated.
