Question

What are the QoS differences between the 16-port 10-Gigabit Ethernet MPC and the I-chip-based DPC?

Answer

  • Dynamic memory is not supported on the 16-port 10-Gigabit Ethernet MPC.
  • A buffer configured on an MPC queue is treated as the maximum. However, it is treated as the minimum on the I-chip DPC.
  • The MPC maintains packets in 128-byte chunks.
  • Port shaping is supported on all MPCs.
  • Queues can have unique shaping and guaranteed rate configuration.
