Cisco 2621XM

I was thinking I read somewhere that you are limited on the number of interfaces that you can actively run on something.

I was thinking about running 2 WIC-1DSU-T1's and a NM-4A/S for my lab but I am now wondering if this is going to be a problem. Any insight?

    It should not be a problem on the 2621XM, how much RAM do you have? Each additional interface requires additional packet buffers which are taken from RAM.

    Thanks for the fast reply!

    I have 128/48 right now.... I am willing to increase it to 256DRAM if i have to.

    You should be fine. We used to run 2 WIC 2T and an NM-4a/s in our 2611xm with 128MB of RAM.

    You should have no problem at all in a lab since your traffic won't come close to what you would see in a production environment. Go for it!

    Now i just need to get some $ to buy the interfaces.... icon_cool.gif
