Hi

The maximum config depends on your specific hardware. I've worked on routers with more than 32000 lines of config.

The "dir system:" command will show you the size of your running config.

Use the "show archive config differences system:running-config nvram:startup-config" to compare the config, if this was what you were trying to get at.

Maybe you can give us more clarity on your problem.

Do a show startup-config.

The first line will show you something like "Using 15735 out of 245752 bytes".

If you have a problem with the size of the config, you can compress it by configuring service compress-config
