Routers and Switches Uptimes

Does anyone know, what are the recomended uptimes for Cisco routers and switches? I believe the it depends on Model/Type.  After how long does a switch or a router needs to be rebooted? If possible, provide me with a list for all models or let me know where I could find this information.

Thank you

Hi Parul,

There's no as such recommended uptime as these equipments are quite robust, what you might consider is the memory utilization on the box from time to time and decide weather the unit needs a reload or not, a reload will free up all the unused memory.

You can run the following commands to check the current utilization:

sh mem summary

sh proc mem

(common for both switches and routers)
