I have one J-6350 with the four integrated 4 10/100/1000 ports. I have configured the J-series to work in Packet-mode.
Have some problems finding the specification about throughput on these ports in packet-mode.
Anyone who know how much traffic these ports can handle?

I vaguely recall having this discussion about 3 years ago with someone and if memory serves me, the 4 interfaces on the J-Series are oversubscribed 2-to-1 i.e. there are 2x 1Gbps buses connected to the 4 ports, so if you want to do line rate, only use 0 and 2 or 1 and 3.
This was a long time ago though and it may have only been relevant to the 4350.

I tested the J6350 4-port built-in interface with a traffic generator. it only accepts 500mbps of total traffic for all ports. its either i have a defective unit or is this the normal behavior?

dfex above noted that the ports are oversubscribed 2-1 so the theoretical limit would be 2gbit. However the cpu would likely be the limiting factor in your test.
What kind of traffic were you generating and what's your config like?
