throughput on devices

Hi all, can anyone help.

If I have a layer 3 gigabit switch and 1 port is constantly transmitting at say 900meg a second, will it affect the performance of the switch in a whole? ie other users plugged into it?

Re: throughput on devices

Hi ,,

That depends upon the Switch module as some of the modules have single Buffer memory for a range of Switch Ports and some another have dedicated buffer memory for each Switch Port.

Please get me the Switch module name

Re: throughput on devices

lets say c3560

Re: throughput on devices

The 3560 is like the 3750. Physical port are connected to port ASIC, If i remember correctly, those port ASIC have an 8 Gbps capacity. All port asics are linked together bay a dual 16 Gbps ring.

If you do a sh plat port-asic version, you will see the number of port asic on that platform.

Hi there, so is this 8 gig, the buffer space? when would the buffer be needed? is it when there is congestion in the switch ?
