Re: What's the command "PLATFORM" doing?

Hello Oleg,

multilayer switches can change behaviour depending on how they allocate the Tcam tables.

use the following to verify the sdm in use

http://www.cisco.com/en/US/docs/switches/metro/me3400/software/release/12.2_46_se/configuration/guide/swsdm.html

if you are using layer-2 sdm routing is done via SW and this loads the cpu.

After changing the sdm mode you need to reload the swith to make the change effective.

note:

I didn't find the platform command in 12.2(46)SE command reference so I think you are meaning the sdm method

Hope to help
