I have a 7206vxr with a NPE-G1 card in it. I am planning to add some PA-GE card with a ws-g5486 to light single mode Gigabit dark fibre.
Looking at this old thread
it seems that users are experiencing throughput of around 200Mbps. Is this per card, or for the entire chasis? I have 6 free slots, if i were to fill 3 of them up with PA-GE card would i get 200Mbps on each card ?
read this little gem first.
http://www.cisco.com/en/US/prod/collateral/routers/ps341/prod_presentation09186a008009184d.pdf A GE uses 400 of 600 bandwidth points per PCI Bus. The max per chassis would be 2 GE total. I don't reccomend it.
The best I have ever seen a 1 gig card do on a 7200 (we had the G2) was 800Mb, and that was a test scenario.
