Particel and Non particle based plotforms.

Hi

I have the following questions

1. What are particle based and non-particle based plotforms.

2. What are particle and non-particle buffers and how data(packet) is stored in these types.

3. What is particle memory.

Re: Particel and Non particle based plotforms.

The 3600 Series Routers are particle-based platforms. The interface buffers are atomic buffers, called particles, into which the packets are split. When a packet cannot be fast-switched, the router has to reassemble it in one system buffer because the process switching code cannot handle particles. Public particle pools cannot be tuned. Refer the following URL for more info http://www.cisco.com/en/US/products/hw/routers/ps274/products_tech_note09186a00801e1155.shtml.
