how toicalculate -What is the throughput of device?

Hi experts,

I would like to know what is exactly the current throughput of device? How can we calculate if the device is reaching it's throughput?

For example if router 7200VXR has maximum throughput of 520 mbps as per Cisco documents.

How can we measure if the traffic going through the device has reached maximum throughput. Is it the traffic only inbound traffic or the total of invound/outbound on all physical interfaces? please clarify. Thanks in advance

Performance testing has an RFC standard based on no drop rate . Usually only two interaces are used.

Hi Paolo,

Thanks for your reply.

Which two interfaces are used? on production live router  which interfaces should be checked to calculate throughput?

for ex if router has 3 interfaces , 2 of them connected to inside Vlans and 3rd interface connected to ISP , which interface should i be checking , also shall i have to add input and output rate? 

Live routers are not to be used for performance testing.

You can refer to the attached document for more information.
