3560v2 specification

Unanswered Question
Sep 1st, 2009

I'm wondering about information that Cisco provide about 3560v2. I've just tried to find the specification of RAM for 3560v2 but nothing found. I just saw only compact flash 32MB why? Isn't 3560v2 need RAM? I don't think so. (grin) and one more question, is Forwarding bandwidth and switching fabric has the same meaning?

Please help me..

I knew, these are silly questions but I really didn't found these information.

Thank you in advance

I have this problem too.

Hi, leolaohoo

In my option, it is compact flash that use to store IOS or configuration file it's not memory that use to run running-configuration. What do you think?

Thank for your opinion

I can not find any reference on Cisco website that the 3560v2 uses a Compact Flash memory as a storage. It uses a flash alright, but it does not seem to use the Compact Flash modules as the ISR routers do.

Best regards,

Hello, I found "sh ver" for 3560v2 in other conversation

"(revision C0) with 122880K/8184K bytes of memory."

that means 3560v2 approximate 128MB of RAM, right?

Anyone can confirm me? ( the link below as my reference)

Thank you for confirmation.

How could I find document that mention about RAM for 3560v2 model ?

It's so strange that Cisco try to hide this information. I don't understand.
