Re: Cisco WS-X6148-GE-TX Port-ASIC mapping

Hello Jaime,

We can find this information on the Catalyst 6500 Ethernet Module Installation Guide

http://www.cisco.com/en/US/docs/switches/lan/catalyst6500/hardware/Module_Installation/Mod_Install_Guide/02ethern.html#wp1062961

48 ports (all variants). Ports are numbered (left to right)

Top row, odd numbered ports 1-47.

Bottom row, even numbered ports 2-48.

Port groups

WS-X6148-GE-TX—2

WS-X6148A-GE-TX—6

Port ranges per port group

WS-X6148-GE-TX: 1-24, 25-48

WS-X6148A-GE-TX: 1-8, 9-16, 17-24, 25-32, 33-40, 41-48


Note that WS-X6148A-GE-TX presents more groups.

Hope that helps.

Kind regards.

Karim

For WS-SUP32-GE-3B how is the ASIC distributions?

Hi Jaime!

In this supervisor module, only one ASIC is used for the grouping of the 8x 1G ports as shown by the architecture image below.

http://www.cisco.com/en/US/prod/collateral/switches/ps5718/ps708/prod_white_paper0900aecd803e508c.html

"An onboard port ASIC is used to drive the front nine Gigabit Ethernet ports or the two 10-Gigabit Ethernet port"

Figure 6. Supervisor Engine 32-8GE Baseboard Architecture

http://www.cisco.com/en/US/prod/collateral/switches/ps5718/ps708/images/0900aecd80465061_null_null_null_01_10_06-06.jpg

Also note the SUP32 supervisor does not provide a Switch Fabric crossbar connexion (like SUP720 for ex) but an access to a shared 32G BUS.

The Sup32 could be considered as a « classic module » that provide a connection to the classic 32GB Bus for the communication between the cards.

Indeed unlike Sup720 for ex., the SUP32 has no built-in switch fabric module and cannot take advantage of a separate Switch Fabric Module.

This shared 32-Gbps bus allows all connected ports (both the supervisor and line cards) to both transmit and receive data (details described on Packet Flow Through the Supervisor Engine 32 part of the same link).

Kind regards.
