Application control engine is up to 16G?

I'm jeon.

I have a question regarding ace performance

I know that the ace use the Tengigabitethernet in internal bus

but How can the ACE do up to 16G?

If the ace use the TE, the maximum performance is 10G? , on my opinion.

Could you explain me about this?


Re: Application control engine is up to 16G?

ACE uses a single 16Gbps interconnect to the Catalyst 6500/7600 Switch backplane.

I think you are confused because of

Cat6500-1#sh int TenGigabitEthernet x/1 status

command that is used for ACE.

Since there is no interfaces of type "16G",

TenGigabitEthernet type is used, to indicate that it is a single connection.

It just indicate a single connection between msfc and ace?

If Te x/1 is 10G, the real data communication in 16G between msfc and ace?

Re: Application control engine is up to 16G?

As I said earlier there is a single 16Gbps conn between ACE & switch backplane. Te is only used as no 16g interface definition is available in IOS.
