Maximum number of local SPAN sessions on 6513

What is the max number of SPAN sessions that can be done on a Cisco 6513 switch? I've tried reading Cisco's docs but am still confused. Is says 2 (ingress or egress or both) but then the total says 66 per switch. I've also read elsewhere that you can have a max of 4 tx or rx only sessions or 2 both (tx & rx). I'm confused and it would be great if someone could help clarify. Thanks!

Re: Maximum number of local SPAN sessions on 6513

Hello networkps1,

see

http://www.cisco.com/en/US/docs/switches/lan/catalyst6500/ios/12.2SXF/native/configuration/guide/span.html#wp1102614

see section

Local SPAN, RSPAN, and ERSPAN Session Limits

the real factor is the supervisor type that decides the type of PFC submodule is installed.

the limit for local sessions is 2 in any case.

the 66 is taking in account remote span sessions and ERSPAN

Hope to help
