RSM performance in a 5500

Right now I have two 3640's (16 flash 48 DRAM) handling my inter-vlan (5 VLAN's) routing. I am looking to move this function to my 5500's using 5302's. I have two 5500's in my core and I would like to install a RSM in each one and configure HSRP between the two.

I have read some documentation that the 3640 can process 50 to 70 thousand packets per second, how does and RSM stack up to this?

Re: RSM performance in a 5500

The Catalyst 5500 leverages a switching fabric of 3.6 Gbps made up of three input buses, each bus running at 1.2 Gbps. As per Cisco: "The route switch module adds multilayer switching to the awarding-winning one million packets per second Layer 2 performance of the Catalyst 5000 and the multimillion packet per second capabilities of the Catalyst 5500. As NetFlow Switching, multimedia, and security services are integrated into the Catalyst 5000 series with the route switch module, wire speed performance and the consistent latencies of switching are maintained." So the number will be less than one million, but still a lot more than the 3600.

Re: RSM performance in a 5500

Hello,

For those of you looking for some figures concerning router performance you can have a look at the following :

3640 4,000(process) 50-70,000 (fast)

Catalyst-RSM 14,000 (process) 175,000 (fast)

I found a complete table in Cisco's Infoblast, but I don't find the link to it. Anyway :
