Understanding Physical Capacity on 6509

Hi

I have a 6509 and per cco, I only use gig port and I am definately over the 130 limit.

http://www.cisco.com/univercd/cc/td/doc/product/lan/cat6000/6000hw/mod_gd/01overvw.htm

Assuming 256 or 720 backplane speed,

I haven't had any problems so far...so just wondering how Cisco reach at this 130 limit and if any one else had problems with limits.

Thanks

Re: Understanding Physical Capacity on 6509

Hi

Are you talking about GBIC gig ports and being over 130 ?

130 is the limit for GBIC ports.

384 is the limit for SFP ports

385 (apparently) is the limit for 10/100/1000 RJ45 ethernet.

Attached is a link to a Cisco data sheet on 6500 and 6500-E chassis. Scroll down to table 2 for port densities.

Edit - here's the link

http://www.cisco.com/en/US/products/hw/switches/ps708/products_data_sheet09186a00800ff916.html

I supsect 130 is derived from the fact that for GBIC connectors you can only have 16 ports in a blade so

8 x 16 = 128

+ 2 GBIC connectors on Supervisor

= 130
