packet buffer

How do i know the number of packet a switch buffer can hold. The documentation only contains the size of the buffer but does not specify the amount of packet the buffer can hold. For example can one calculate the amount of packet a switch can hold if the buffer size is 4MB?

Re: packet buffer

Hello,

 

It would depend on the size of the packet. You are not going to be able to hold as many 1500 byte packets as you would 200 byte packets. Take the size of the buffer (4MB) and divide it by your average packet size and that should give you a rough idea of how many packets.

 

Hope that helps!
