  • Network Slow

    Hi Guys ..
    actually we have problems while the clients download its own images through the network
    here the specs
    we have this config
    Cisco B( ppal Switch)cat4506-192.168.1.46
    we have 2 vlans (1-office and 12- floor)
    in the floor we have 3 switches connected to the cisco B
    Cisco C - cat6513 ,
    Cisco D - cat4506
    Cisco E - cat 4506
    the clients need to download software from our servers.
    The cisco C works faster
    but the Cisco D and E works slow .
    we compare the ports configuration and its the same .
    what we can improbment to make this couple swtches works faster as cisco C..

    thanks in advanced

    Of course the 6513 is faster, it has a better supervisor engine and a larger backplane. You can look at the spec sheet on that switch and compare the differences. Are your clients connecting directly to these 3 switches or are their access layer switches behind them? What type of images are they downloading? How large are they? How many are you trying to do at a time? Are you using multicast?

      Re: Network Slow

      Hi thanks for take your time for see our case

      Are your clients connecting directly to these 3 switches - Yes

      or are their access layer ?? ???? I no understand or what it means


      switches behind them? NO the clients connect directly to the Cisco switch


      What type of images are they downloading? what you mean with Kind ??
      *.tar files


      How large are they? among 7 through 20 gb


      How many are you trying to do at a time?
      ok we have 7 download server and per server can download 40 at time ...
      so we have the 6513 and the other 2 switches sharing in the floor but we want to improvement some configuration or connections for make the other 2 4506 switches more faster .. because

      5 serves are connected to the 6513 and its download faster the clients that are connected to the cisco C and D but the cisco C download more slow .. ..

      the rest 2 servers are connected to the cisco D and its download slowly ..

      I know that it sound so messy sorry if I don't make me explain correctly ..


      Are you using multicast?I heard this term in the school but i don't remember let me Google but i don't know how or where can we use this option

        You need to look at your link utilization and see what that looks like. Take a look at your cpu and memory on the 4500's to see if its getting high. You could be just over taxing those platforms.

            attached will find the cpu utilization with a higer record on
            Cat4k Mgmt LoPr around 80 % .. its means something wrong ?
            thanks

              Re: Network Slow

              CPU utilization for five seconds: 96%/0%; one minute: 89%; five minutes: 53%
              Those values are very high. Are those numbers under normal load? or during a transfer? Really it doesn't matter as your are taxing that switch to its limits. Are you doing alot of logging via ACL's? If so all logged packets under an ACL are punted down to the cpu for processing. This can cause high utilization.

              show platform health

              show platform cpu packet statistics

              Also here is a good link from cisco
