Re: Switch acceleration 4006, SE II, Backplane Channel Module
You're reading the same material.. but about different "options" regarding the different ways to configure switch acceleration. You basically have 4 options when configuring switch acceleration on the 4000 boxes..
1) no switch acceleration
2) fully meshed interconnections between switch engines, but not being able to utilize the gig uplinks
3) same as "option 2", except you'll have dual-link load balancing between switch engine 1 & switch engine 2/switch engine 2 & switch engine 3, and use of your gig uplinks
4) fully meshed interconnections & MULTI link load balancing connections between ALL switch engines, but not being able to utilize gig uplinks
Now.. for option 1 & 2.. no Backplane Channel Module is required. But, for option 3 & 4.. a Backplane Channel Module IS required to be installed in the chassis.
These are the options you have to choose from, choose whichever best suits your current network setup.
Provided is a link on how to enable/disable switch acceleration, what it is, the benefits of the different configurations & so on. Hope this helps...
