Is this combination of SPAs on a SIP truly not supported?

I've got a 7604 with Sup-720 and a SIP-400 with three 2-Gig SPAs installed.  Upon booting up I get an error message that states bandwidth is exceeded on the line card, and the combination of SPA interfaces is not supported. I had no luck searching for a document that would describe any such bad combinations.

The SIP/SPAs all came up and seem to be working OK, but I'm worried about the error msg. Below is a portion of the log showing the SIP/SPAs coming on-line and the error msg. Below that is a 'show mod'.  Is the installed combination of SPAs truly not compatible with each other?

Re: Is this combination of SPAs on a SIP truly not supported?

Hi,

It is not because combination of SUP and SIP but there is oversizing rules for SIP-400.


The total aggregated bw (combination of SPA in SIP) supported is oc-48 per SIP-400.

If you are below oc-48 you will not get any warning message.but if you are above oc-48 you will get warning message ,

your router will continue working but it can malfunction or performance can be degraded.

In you case you already have crossed 4gb bw in slot-2 hence the warning message.

Please find link below for few information

Hope this is useful

Re: Is this combination of SPAs on a SIP truly not supported?

In reading the document relating to the SIP-400, I found these two references:

Scalable Bandwidth with Intelligent Network Services for Next-Generation Applications
The unique value provided by the Cisco 7600 Series is the convergence supported from the physical layer to a highly scalable application layer. The Cisco 7600 Series can scale from 10 Megabit Ethernet to 10 Gigabit Ethernet in the LAN, and DS-0 to OC-48/STM-16 in the WAN.

How do they state 10 Gigabit Ethernet in the LAN if you can only have up to an OC-48 worth of bandwidth on the SIP-400?


Supported SPAs:
Ethernet
• 2-port 1 GE SPA (V1 and V2)
• 5 port 1 GE SPA (V2 only)
• 1-port 10GbE SPA LAN PHY (V2 only)

Again, how can the SIP-400 support  a 5port 1 GE SPA or a 1-port 10Gbe SPA if the SIP-400 is limited to OC-48 speeds?  Just curious.

Re: Is this combination of SPAs on a SIP truly not supported?

Hi,

There are two cases

1- when total bw is below oc-48

   all SPA types can be combined

  

1.       For release 12.2(33)SRB and above, the following SPA combinations are supported on SIP-400:

a.       Any mix of POS, ATM, CEoP and serial SPAs up to an aggregate of OC-48. This implies that 1xOC-48 POS SPAs have to be used alone in a SIP-400, and cannot be combined with other SPAs

b.       The Cisco 7600 SIP-400 supports installation of any combination of OC-3 or OC-12 POS or ATM SPAs up to a combined ingress bandwidth of OC-24 rates, when installed with a single 2-Port Gigabit Ethernet SPA

c.       Two SPA-2X1GE SPAs

2.       With 12.2(33)SRD1 and above , add FE SPA and E3/T3 serial SPA in mix allowed combinations

2- when above oc-48

     The SIP400 is running in oversubcription mode. In this case, only three oversubscribed combination

     are supported : 1 x 5GE ; 2x5GE ; 1 x 10GE.

    

       By default , when using two 2xGE-V2-SPA, no additionnal SPA can be used, because of the oversubscription beyond 4 GE bandwidth.
