interpreting txload/rxload (show interface)

hi,

i've a cisco 2600 with adsl wan-interface and a 3 mbit connection. when i use the commando 'show interface' the output shows (for instance) rxload 80/255.

255 are 100 percent, right?

...but from where point the cisco that 100 percent are 3 mbit!?

Re: interpreting txload/rxload (show interface)

Hi ,

Rx load is nothing but the amount of traffic you are receiving on that particular wan interface. Rxload 80/255 means you are getting almost all 2.4Mbps from outside.

Txload means the amount of traffice which is going out from your network.

Rxload inturn depends on Txload load.

Hope it clarifies your dought.

Thanks,

Re: interpreting txload/rxload (show interface)

i know that rx and tx are receive/transmit...this wasn't my question. but why are 80/255 = 2,4 mbit??

i thought that 80/255 are approximately 1 mbit...and 255/255 are 3 mbits??

my original question in more detail:

why the cisco knows that the adsl-interface is connected to a 3 mbit-connection? no bandwith is configured and the show interface-command shows: BW: 448kbit!?!?
