Maximum throughput on a 2811


Hello All,

I'm looking to learn what will happen when the maximum throughput on a Cisco 2811 router has been reached? I can't seem to find any good documentation. Any suggestions?

Thank you in advance!

What happens?  Generally packets start to be lost.  For example, you send 100 Mbps to one FE interface and perhaps 40 Mbps then exits another FE interface.  As most network applications don't well tolerate a 60% packet loss rate, effectively the applications may behave as if there was 100% packet loss.
