ISR 4461 throughput license

Breejesh

Hello Experts,

I have ISR 4461 router having 2 ISPs terminating with each has 1Gig internet bandwidth. We have failover on ISP circuits. 

We have below licenses pre-installed on the box.


Technology Package License Information:

-----------------------------------------------------------------
Technology Technology-package Technology-package
Current Type Next reboot
------------------------------------------------------------------
appxk9 appxk9 Smart License appxk9
uck9 uck9 Smart License uck9
securityk9 securityk9 Smart License securityk9
ipbase ipbasek9 Smart License ipbasek9

The current throughput level is unthrottled

 

My question is, do I need to install throughput license considering the fact that we have two ISPs with each having 1 gig internet bandwidth. Asking because users are complaining slowness on internet speed (max hit 300mbps in speedtest.net result).

Please advise.

Hello,

 

not really sure what you mean by:

 

--> The current throughput level is unthrottled

 

Does that mean you have the Boost license installed ?

 

What is the output of:

 

show platform hardware throughput level

 

?

 

With the 300MB limit your users are experiencing, you most likely have the performance license installed.

 

Check the post linked below, it has a table that lists the throughput per router model and license...

Thanks for responding. Please see the output below for the command you asked for

SINSEA-WANRTR-01#show platform hardware throughput level
The current throughput level is unthrottled

We do not have any performance license installed. See below

Router model is ISR 4461 and the default throughput for 4461 is 1.5 Gbps as per https://www.cisco.com/c/en/us/products/collateral/routers/4000-series-integrated-services-routers-isr/data_sheet-c78-732542.html

Now not sure if I need to manually hit a command "platform hardware throughput level 150000" to set to default throughput instead of "unthrottled".

Please advise.
