How many EIGRP prefixes can a single 3560/3750 layer3 switch store?

Hi

Happy new year.

There is a design question in front of me and customer has a pretty tight budget.

This EIGRP domain has about around 1000 prefixes, no VRF, no BGP. can a single 3560 with Advanced IP ios easily support and store those 1000prefixes without bringing up a high CPU process or I would need to think about a 3750?

Many thanks for your replies.

indicates the 3560 is capable of 11000 unicast routes - so your 1000 shouldn't bother it at all.

Cheers.
