Re: 6509 - MEM-MSFC3-1GB upgrade

This would be needed for something along the lines of "I have 512MB of RAM and I am low or out of memery when I activate all my BGP peers". Each full internet table will take very roughly 230MB. Upgrading to 1GB of memory on the MSFC will allow you to hold a bigger BGP table.

Be warned, this will NOT increase the number of routes that can be programed into TCAM for hardware forwarding. This is memory for the RP only.

Hi,

According to memory guidance for 6500 series;

Upgrade Considerations for memory:

(1) Large route tables >25k entries

(2) Premium features (for example, enhanced Fast Software Upgrade [eFSU], In-Service Software Upgrade [ISSU])

(3) Right size memory now for future Cisco IOS Software images on Cisco Catalyst 6500/Cisco 7600 Series Supervisor Engine 720 Cisco Catalyst 6500 Supervisor Engine 32 and ME6524

Here is more info:

That would be the memory upgrade for the switch processor on the SUP to 1GB.

Re: 6509 - MEM-MSFC3-1GB upgrade

Hi all,

Now I have Router 7613 with SUP

WS-Sup720-3BXL. Can I use DRAM ( 1GB) include SP and RP to change DRAM on 7609. I want to upgrade SP and RP RAM on 7609 from 512M to 1G.

Thanks
