Re: Routing capacilty (packet per seconds -64 byte size) for Cis

Hi Millerv,

Thank for your quick respond. Just for your information the tender spec had already designed by customer consultant, and in the tender spec there have one Cisco 2950 24ports switch and one Cisco 2620 router to perform layer 3 switching and routing.

So it's doesn't shown how many memory is needed in the tender spec but as far as I know that the customer is a small ISP to provided e-community service for condominium and apartments.

For the question 2, I guess the customer need to know how much memory needed for full peering in BGP. In fact I’m totally agreed with you, these function is depend on the memory size.

For the question 3, I guess the customer wanted to used the Cisco 2620 to perform layer 3 switching and routing so do you have any ideal what is the maximum number of VALN (802.1Q) supported (number)?

For the question 4, I had gone through the Cisco web site to search for the figure, but somehow I can’t get a specified answer on it. In fact I had submitted these question to Cisco TAC team but until now I haven’t got any answer from Cisco.

Maybe you help me to channel my questions to others forum member, since you are regular forum Cisco Networking professional member and I guess someone out there may know the specified answer.

Anyway once against I thank for your help.

Note: Hoping to good news from you.
