Slow InterVlan Routing Cisco 3560x

Hi Everyone,

I have been learning a lot about Cisco switches and I had one setup with a few vlans (10,20,70). Recently I enabled inter-vlan routing on the switch and everything seemed to be going ok, and then suddenly file transfer rates between computers on one vlan to another became less than 3MB/s. However file transfers between any computer on the same vlan were around 100-120MB/s. I do have STP running on this switch and two other SG-300-28P switches, but I don't think that is the problem but I may be wrong. The Cisco 3560x is configured as the root bridges and it is running in r-pvst, and the other two SG-300-28P are running in rstp.

Some configuration snippets:

Hi ,

I would try:

system mtu routing 1504

Slow InterVlan Routing Cisco 3560x

I agree I would   try changing themtu back to 1500 .  If a device is using 9000 byte packets and you are transfering between vlans everything gets fragmented because  these models cannot  route jumbo frames .  This is a platform restriction.

Hi Dan and Glen,

Thank you so much for replying to me. I did change the routing mtu back to default, however with it only switching I still found it going much slower than wire speed.

It later was discovered that a downstream switch (esw-540-24p) does not support Jumbo or hasn't been enabled and that was causing hiccups. With the esw-540-24p removed and routing mtu back to default, performance is now amazing on the switch once again.

Thanks you so much for your help!
