Cisco 7613 with IP local pool cache-size

Hi there,

With IP local pool, the default cache-size is 20. What's the maximum cache-size for this pool? Configuration example shows 10000.

And if I do configure the IP local pool cache-size to 10000, will this have any impact on the memory or CPU process of the router?

Does anyone know what's the memory utilisation taken up by each IP address in the cache?

Thank you very much in advance.


Re: Cisco 7613 with IP local pool cache-size

On the 7500 Series, the IPC queues are in the processor memory. In some versions of Cisco IOS (see below), the aggregate IPC buffer space in processor memory can be tuned by the ipc cache size command. The MEMD holds some limited buffers that cannot be tuned. When sending an IPC message which is enqueued in processor memory and when there is some free space in MEMD, the IPC messages are "moved" from the processor memory to MEMD before being sent to the LC.

Use the show ipc queue command to view the status of the IPC queues.
