ATM interface for 6509-MSFC-E

I have an ATM interface configured into a 6509 running MSFC-E with an ATM card on it. I can not see any packet dropping, but I have users complaining about that when they trace directly over the 6509. The other side we havea Cisco 7609 with ATM card on it. On each side the Cisco is connected to a Nortel Passport 7K

Is there any specific configuration or problem reported with this set up.

Thanks,

Gilson

Re: ATM interface for 6509-MSFC-E

Are they sure traffic is actually dropping, or is the router just not responding to all the traceroute packets because it is busy? A lot of people do not know how to use traceroute. If only the 6509 hop is droppong packets, but not points past it, the link is not dropping packets it is just a busy CPU on that node.

Otherwise it would be useful if you told us what you checked when you looked for dropped packets. Did you look at the SAR/AAL stats, or just the interface stats?

Hi Julin.

let me know if you have any ideas. I am not that ATM savvy.

I have investigated the ATM interface and it looks like we are taking too many incoming and outgoing packets being process switched processed packets.

sh atm traffic

This is the main connection between two major sites and we have a Cisco 7200 IOS running into a 6509 to support module:

7 0 4-subslot SPA Interface Processor-400 7600-SIP-400

I think at this point we need a police shape or change the design.

Here is how I have the ATM PVC configured and he output of the show atm PVC for both pvcs.
