Cisco ASR 9000 IPv6 Scale Profile

I saw in the System Configuration Management Guide for ASR 9000 the following:

Specifies the scale profile for the router.

  • default—efficient for deployments that require large Layer 2 MAC tables (up to 512,000 entries) and a relatively small number of Layer 3 routes (less than 512,000).
  • l3—efficient for deployments that require more Layer 3 routes (up to 1 million) and smaller Layer 2 MAC tables (less than 128,000 entries).

  • l3xl—efficient for deployments that require a very large number of Layer 3 routes (up to 1.3 million) and minimal Layer 2 functionality. Note that the support for up to 1.3 million routes is split into IPv4 scaled support and IPv4/IPV6 scaled support. You can configure up to 1.3 million IPv4 routes, or up to 1 million IPv4 routes with 128,000 IPv6 routes.

Does this mean, that only with the l3xl profile (which requires a expensive license) i'm able to support IPv6? In my opinion it should be possible also with the default profile...we don't need more than 1 Million routes.

Thanks

Re: Cisco ASR 9000 IPv6 Scale Profile

HI,

Whatever the profile you choose the generic equation is: x+2y <= max number of routes where x is the number of IPv4 routes and y the number of IPv6 routes.

Please not 4.0.1 is the minimum release to support l3xl profile and you need 4G of memory on your LC

Thanks,

Short question every LC has 4G memory? (low, medium, high)

It seems LC are now shipped with 4G of memory.

Thanks,
