Are there any stats on the control-plane size for each platform?
I am specifically looking for the control-plane size (in bps) for 6509-E with Sup-720-3B.
The reason i need to know is that when i police traffic for important / normal classes, i need to know
how much percent of control plane i am reserving for them. I want to make sure that i dont make the police bps
very high for important / normal classes such that there is less room for critical and default traffic.
Thanks a lot
if I've understood correctly you are configuring CoPP.
Consider also Denial of service protection that allows to define special case rate limiters of traffic towards the main CPU
HW based rate limiters:
Actually, the objective is to keep the cpu usage as low as possible. This may explain why a figure of control plane speed is not reported.
You should configure CoPP and HW rate so that STP BPDUs and all routing protocol messages are not dropped and telnet/SSH and SNMP can be performed.
Hope to help
