Does anyone know the maximum switching capacity of Nexus 7018?
Can I say the capacity is 230Gbps*16 since the fabric architecture provides 230Gbps per slot with 5 fabric modules?
In the datasheet, Nexus 7018's performance is 960Mpps (Ipv4 unicast) in combination with supervisor and fabric modules.
How to calculate the performance 960Mpps?
Each slot on N7K is capable of switching upto 550 Gbps per slot. This is available with the Generation 2 fabric module (FAB 2), which supports 110 GBPS per slot capacity.You can use 5 of these in a N7K chassis which has upto 5 Switch fabric slots. 110*5 = 550 Gbps per slot capacity.In a full-duplex mode, N7K with FAB 2 will support 15+ Tbps switching throughput.
