Ethernet Interfaces Performance ISR's - Internet Access

Unanswered Question
May 27th, 2010

Ethernet as a Access method for Dedicated Internet Services is becoming increasingly more popular. Would appreciate a discussion on packet processing performance for Ethernet interfaces.

For example: An 1841 that may have two FastEthernet interfaces most likely should not be expected to support an access of 50Mbps.

Would we want a 2811 to support a 10Mbps Access.

Is there a good guideline posted somewhere?

Thnak You  I'm grateful for these Support Communities.

I have this problem too.

Hello Ticarey,

there is a common file about router performance

see attachment

these are raw figures unidirectional (divide by two for bidirectional traffic)

ACLs , QoS and other features influence performances

Hope to help

Thank You - Is there a sheet that addresses the new G2 platforms?
