What are default 'delay' values for various speed interfaces in 6509?

I have several 6509s with a mix of 10/100BaseTX, FX and 1000MB GBIC interface modules. When I am consoled into the MSFC and do a 'sh int vlan xx' the delay field on all vlans is the same - 10usec. I'm sure this is because the MSFC doesn't know which ports on the switch are associated with the vlans.

So what this does is create some unwanted routing through the 6509s because the delay values are all the same. I'd like to set the delay values on the vlans to more accurately match the port speed the vlans are attached to.

On an FE port of a 7206 router the delay value is 100usec, and an Ethernet port is dalay of 1000usec.

Should I use those same values on the 6509 MSFC to configure delay on the various vlans/ports?

As long as you are consistent throughout your network with this then there should be no issues.
