Overview

Overview (WS-C6503-E)

The new 3-slot Cisco Catalyst 6503-E Switch chassis offers a compact 4 rack-unit height and provides centralized network architecture through simplified operations that is ideally suited for multi-Gbps secure data centers, remote access, e-commerce, and converged network solutions. The Cisco Catalyst 6503-E supports Cisco Catalyst 6500 Series end-to-end operational consistency benefits. Any two Cisco Catalyst 6500E series Switches with Supervisor Engine 720-3C/720-3CXL/S2T-10G/S2T-10G-XL can be pooled together into a VSS. The chassis offers superior investment protection by supporting all the Cisco Catalyst 6500 Supervisor Engines and associated LAN, WAN, and services modules.

Q&A

Faq (WS-C6503-E)

What is the CPU impact on operations like installing or removing patches, and repackaging?

Tasks such as installing and removing patches run as low priority-and so if the system is busy with other more important tasks such as routing, these functions will be given limited CPU time in order to protect the system.

Is it possible to stop system processes?

At initial FCS, only restarting of processes will be supported. Stopping processes is not allowed.

Because the file system is now being used for patching functions, what is required in order to obtain maximum performance of the file system?

Using the most recent ROMMON version and formatting the media on a system running Software Modularity will result in the optimal file system performance.

Provided the system is running (bound) to a compact flash-can the compact flash be removed once the system has booted?

No. Portions of the software are dynamically loaded based on configuration and therefore the media where the system is bound must be available all the time.

What happens if a process fails repeatedly?

Software Modularity has system-protection functions that monitor process restarts and will force a supervisor engine switchover (in a dual supervisor engine environment) or a system restart if a process is unable to recover within predefined thresholds.

Is there a change in image size with Software Modularity?

Yes. Because of the improved process boundaries and new capability being added, the Software Modularity enhancements will increase the Cisco IOS Software image size slightly.

How does the boot time of a system running Software Modularity compare to a traditional system?

The boot time for a system running Software Modularity is expected to be similar to current boot times for Cisco IOS Software on the Cisco Catalyst 6500 Series.

Will I get a system message when a process restarts?

Embedded Event Manager (EEM) can be used to generate custom e-mail, syslog, or Simple Network Management Protocol (SNMP) messages when a process restarts.

Does Cisco IOS Software Modularity provide information on which processes are affected by a patch update?

Yes, it provides this information. During the patching process the system will explicitly list which process(es) will be affected by the patch being applied. The user will also have the opportunity to exit the patching process before the affected subsystems are patched.

How will patches be applied in a dual supervisor engine configuration?

Patches will need to be applied manually on each supervisor engine in a dual supervisor engine configuration. In such environments, both supervisor engines must run the same base image and patches in order to support the NSF/SSO high-availability redundancy mode.
