I/O Memory Cat6500

Unanswered Question
Jan 8th, 2009

The processor memory can be seen on 'sh version' output. How can I see the I/O memory.

Is 20MB a good threshold for notification purpose or should it be higher ?

I have this problem too.

Hello Cisco_Lite,

for example I have:

cisco WS-C6506 (R7000) processor (revision 3.0) with 983008K/65536K bytes of memory.

Processor board ID TBM06402637

SR71000 CPU at 600Mhz, Implementation 0x504, Rev 1.2, 512KB L2 Cache

this is a WS-SUP720-3BXL

modern IOS images are able to autodetect the right size of I/O memory so it should'nt be an issue


in 983008K/65536K bytes the second number is the I/O memory so you can read it from sh ver if it is a Native IOS switch

Hope to help
