18 port GBIC blade on 4006 question about port pairs?

Blade in question.......

Slot Ports Module-Type Model

---- ----- ------------------------- ----------------------------

6 18 1000BaseX Ethernet WS-X4418-GB

Hello all,

I have read the documentation on this particular blade for the 4006 and I understand that ports 1 and 2 are the ONLY uplink ports that can provide dedicated 1Gbps throughput. The other 16 ports are segmented into groups of 4 that are oversubscribed ports; which can also be port-channeled, etc....

~Question~

My question is do the ports that are grouped in 4's pair up vertically or horizontally?

uplink ports

1 & 2 (dedicated 1Gbps uplink ports)

Oversubscribed ports

3,5,7,9 (group 1)

4,6,8,10 (group 2)

Oversubscribed ports cont'd..

11,13,15,17 (group 3)

12,14,16,18 (group 4)

OR are they grouped like this?

uplink ports

1 & 2 (dedicated 1Gbps uplink ports)

Oversubscribed ports

3,5 (group 1)

4,6

7,9

8,10 (group 2)

Oversubscribed ports cont'd.

11,13

12,14 (group 3)

15,17

16,18 (group 4)

Any help would be appreciated,

Thanks,

~zo

As far as my knowledge goes, the grouping will be 3-4-5-6 ; 7-8-9-10 ; etc.

I think you may be incorrect there. Read the following section Figure. 5-1 it seems to say that 3,5,7,9 are a group. Read what it says about server D in the example and you will see that in order for the example they give to make sense is if ports 11,13,15,17 are in a group; thus the groups of 4 ports after port 1 & 2 of course go left to right. I hope I didn't make this too confusing but take a look @ the article and assess it.
