understand that "show buffer" on most Cisco routers (e.g c3845) list the memory buffer that hold the packets to be processed by the software CPU like in situation of process switched traffic. In a Cat6500 with VS720 engine. What did the "show buffer" output provide?
I had a cat6509 that give the following:
It indicate 2 "Huge" buffers allocated by only 1 in free-list all the time.. Also there are some misses counts.. Is there a concern for this case?
Huge buffers, 18024 bytes (total 10, permanent 2, peak 10 @ 7w0d):
1 in free list (1 min, 13 max allowed)
6400 hits, 4 misses, 0 trims, 8 created
0 failures (0 no memory)
