Sup32 architecture

Hi all!

The Sup32 with 2x10GE are available for order and use. So, there is a question about data flow speed between onboard uplink and shared bus. Is this a 8Gbps bus from onboard 10GE ports to shared bus or less/more? I found some Q/A document where was writen "Oversubscribtion 2:1" for 10GE uplinks. Is this means thats the one from two 10GE onboard ports can work at wire speed (10GE in/10GE out)?

Thank you...

Yes. 32 Gbps is available for all the line cards to use.

Sup32, BTW, The following series of line cards are not supported by Sup32:

? WS-X67XX, WS-X68XX, SFM, & DFC-based cards will not work

NO, this is a 32Gbps switching bus. The Cisco? Catalyst? 6500 Supervisor Engine 32 is the latest addition to the Cisco Catalyst 6500 Family of supervisor modules. Designed primarily for access layer deployments, the Supervisor Engine 32 provides Layer 2 bridging and Layer 2 through 4 services with Layer 3 routing optional hardware-accelerated services. It provides connectivity into the classic 32-Gbps switching bus and provides Layer 2 and 3 switching performance up to 15 Mbps.

Here is the architecture white paper:

Re: Sup32 architecture

I see there is problems with my english, which isnt my native. Is Your answer means, that there isnt any upper limits in bandwidth per slot for shared but, so, a two modules, theoretically, can use all 32 gbps capacity of shared bus for data flow between them?

Thank you
