How many VPLS CPE sites supported on ASR9006

We are using AS9006 (A9K-RSP440-SE) as VPLS PE router, and customer sites access to ASR9006,  but there are dozens of sites, now customer has a query: how many VPLS CPE sites supported on ASR9006 for same customer, could you have any idea on this, thanks.

Re: How many VPLS CPE sites supported on ASR9006

Actually this is a complex question with no simple answer - as are all the
scaling related ones.
In IOS XR you can use the command "show l2vpn capabilities" to get the
uni-dimensional scaling numbers for your specific HW setup (i.e. how many
bridge-domains, MACs, etc...)
Then considering your VPLS service parameters, e.g. how many MACs per BD
you allow, you can infer how many instances of such service you can spin up
on a given PE.

But note however that these uni-dimensional scaling numbers are just
theoretical maximum -that is if nothing else is configured on the box while
in your real world setup you're running other protocols with their own
demands on memory and CPU on both RP as well as on LC.
So take these as indicative only.

Hence best answers to scaling questions are derived from the
multi-dimensional scaling testing
