Reset duration for 6500/7600 line cards

Could someone please approximate how long it would take for WS-X6704-10GE and WS-X6724-SFP to come back online after a "hw-module module x reset" command?  If relevant, the router is a 7606-S with redundant RSP720s, the cards have no DFCs and the reason for resetting the cards is fw update from 12.2(14r)S5 to 12.2(18r)S1.

Thank you.

Reset duration for 6500/7600 line cards

Should be rather quick (much quicker than a system reload) but it depends on the 'diagnostic bootup level'

With 4 ports the process is quicker than 24ports /and/ also depends how many ports you have enabled/active.

Reset duration for 6500/7600 line cards

Well, there are currently 6 ports enabled on the WS-X6724-SFP card (5 active, 1 down), and diagnostic bootup level is set to minimal.  How long would it take for the card to reset in these conditions?  Do I gain much if I temporarily set "no diagnostic bootup level" just for this operation?

I don't have any benchmark numbers but you should gain some.
