Re: How does the IOS calculate the ifindex?

Here it goes,

This is not a static list, it changes when interfaces (or sub-interfaces) are added. This also can change each time a reboot occurs. It seems to place the order based upon the type of interfaces (physical, controllers, physical->logical, sub)..

Check out the Performance and Fault Management pub by Cisco Press for more info.
