Re: c2821 Maximum Number of Vlans encap. dot1q

Hello Mariano,

in a router each Vlan subif takes a row in the IDB = interface descriptor block.

the total of physical and logical interfaces on your router cannot be higher then the IDB size.

This number is dependent on platform and IOS version.

on a c2821 the IDB can be 512

I didn't find the number so you should be able to implement several subinterfaces on your router.

2821

I shouldn't go behind 20 subinterfaces per GE there are other factors to be considered like the size of the NIC MAC packet filter.

Hope to help

Giuseppe
