can anyone tell me if all line cards on say a 6059-e forward all traffic locally if going from port to port ? ie does it have a cam table on the card itself, or does it need to ask the Supervisor engine ?
Only cards with DFCs can make local card forwarding decisions.
However, even when the sup makes the forwarding decision, it's not clear whether the data packets needs to cross chassis bus/fabric if moving between ports on same card. (Ideally such data would stay off chassis bus/fabric.)
