Hello,


With CEF, even the first packet is switched. The CEF is built using the routing table as the source of information. Therefore, it is topology-driven and does not require actual packets to flow through the router as the normal route cache does.


This article is a wonderful overview of various switching methods in Cisco IOS, including CEF. Check it out!
