How much will the cpu load increase when I apply CAR at C7513?
some WAN interfaces R1 R2 some WAN interfaces -----------C7513 C7513------------ | | |fe |fe ======switch======= R2: C7513 RSP2 no VIP card cpu load: 18% FastEthernet: outbound: 6Mbps inbound: 22Mbps Cisco IOS 11.1.18CC RED is not available because 11.1.18CC does not provide RED without VIP card. The input queue at the FastEthernet of R2 is insufficent because there are many inbound packet more than outbound packet into some WAN interfaces at R2. Therefore, packet drops happens at Fastethernet of R2. I tried to increase the input queue of the FastEthernet of R2, and I found that that is useless. So I'll try to apply CAR(committed access rate). I have two questions. 1. If I apply CAR at FastEthernet of R2 for inbound traffic, how much will cpu load of R2 increase? I hope that the cpu load does not increase very high. The condition for the classification of IP traffic will be very simple. 2. Is it possible that my work applying CAR will fix the packet drops at FastEthernet? Will my work make queue available faster than before?
