Re: IO Memory

Hello @bluesea2010 ,

the I/O memory is a portion of the router RAM memory that is dedicated to the interfaces: it is used to handle the input and ouput packets in buffers and for outgoing packets they can be held in SW queues before sending.

 

The I/O memory is allocated at system boot and it is usually near 3-5 % of total router memory.

 

>> I/O Pool Total: 46137344 Used: 21322112 Free: 24815232

 

Do you see any issues in your router in addition to this memory usage ?

 

Hope to help

Giuseppe
