Line Rate vs CPU utilization info requested
Does anyone have a table / web site / etc that talks about realized IP throughput on various routers (3600 / 7100 / 7200, 5500, 6500, etc) versus cpu load? IE even though you can put 4 x 100M ethernet cards in a 3640, IMHO, you'd never see 400/800M aggregate throughput because the CPU would be on its' knees begging long before that point.
I'm looking at a project that calls for a DS3, and the suggested router is a 3640, and I'm trying to prove / document that's not a wise idea. What has your experience been? Anecdotal or personal experience appreciated. Offline replies work just as well.
Thanks in advance.
