6500 Backplane Traffic?

We are running a 6513, Sup2's, hybrid, ver 8.3.7 as a collapsed backbone with many gig fiber links providing connectivity to directly attached servers in a single data center.

We plan to transition the servers to access layer 6500's connected by multiple 10G links.

How can I determine the actual traffic across the backplane of the existing 6513?

Thanks

Tom

Re: 6500 Backplane Traffic?

You can use the command "sh system" to check for backplane traffic if running hybrid OS.

Or you could use MRTG/RRDtool to gather longterm stats.

Re: 6500 Backplane Traffic?

what other methods are there to check backplane utilization on the 6513? I am not running hybrid OS and I want to be able to see a trend of it. Also, I do not have MRTG/RRDtool.

With a Network Analysis Module!

See pic.

As you can see this report is from a very idle switch.

It means basically as of your snapshot time that your backplane usuage is less than 1 % , you had a peak of 20% on 12/31/05 at 7:24 AM .
