I have an applications that will be using roughly 16k-64k IP addresses directly connected to a switch, That is .1/24 will be assigned on the switch(or router) and the full subnet will be used by hosts.
These can be broken into groups of 32 class Cs per "set" eq 16k ips per "set"(one vlan per class C) or can be all combined on one device either is fine.
I was originally looking at a a 3560 however after looking at tcam utilization im unclear if this platform will support that high a number of IPs. However I am a little unclear on exactly how the tcam util and actaul arp entries link.
In the 6500 i am unable to identify what the max number of arp entries it could hold are, i understand the arp table and adjacency table are closely linked so they would affect each other i believe?
How can i determine max supported arp entries?
