Question about the FWSM troughtput

Hello networkers,

I have a question - one of our customers is running multicast traffic of around 500 Mbit/sec throught a FWSM and they are observing around 0.1% RTP drops. Is this normal or should I open a TAC case for that?

If it is normal where can I find some documentation?

Thanks in advance for the asnwer,

Vesko

Question about the FWSM troughtput

Hi Bro

Cisco FWSM throughout is 5.5Gbps. This is more than enough to handle your multicast traffic. Perhaps, you'll need QOS Traffic Shapping to resolve this matter. Packet drops are never normal :-)

P/S: if you think this comment is useful, please do rate them nicely :-)

Hi Vesk01,

You have to define the priority queue will optimum bandwidth allocation to avoid any such drops. You can try defining the Qos for RTP with optimum bandwidth and check whether you still get the packet drops on rtp. Hope that will give you an idea about the issue. Throughput may not be an issue in this case.
