    Monitoring the SIBs


    You monitor the Switch Interface Boards (SIBs) that provide the switching function to the destination Flexible PIC Concentrator (FPC). The SIBs create the switch fabric for the routing platforms, providing up to a total of 640 million packets per second (Mpps) of forwarding. (See Table 1.)
