Hi Messrs!

I would like your help. How can I do using CLI, to know the current throughput of 2691 router?

I know that max throughput is 28Mbps and 70000 pps.

thanks in advance,

Renato

Hi

AFAIK you can check out the traffic traversing in & out thru the interfaces which are enabled and capable of forwarding traffic but theres no such cli which can be used to find out the throughput of the box as a whole.

Hi,

If it supports the "show interfaces summary" command then you can total the RXPS and TXPS of each interface to give you an approximate figure.

HTH - plz rate if it does

Andrew.

Hello,

in addition to the other posts, you could also use the command 'show ip traffic', or configure 'ip accounting' (on the interface you want to know the throughput of), and then monitor the source and destination traffic amount with 'show ip accounting'...

HTH,

GNT

Please beware that "IP accounting" will consume more CPU resource. If you find the CPU loading reach high after enable the "IP accounting", you may need to remove it to avoid the impact to user.
