Configuring Line Rate Mode on 10-ort 10-Gigabit Oversubscribed Ethernet PIC

The 10-port 10-Gigabit Oversubscribed Ethernet (OSE) PIC can be configured in the command-line interface (CLI) to operate in the following two modes:

  • Oversubscribed Ethernet ode (default)In this mode, all ports are enabled on the PIC with two-to-one oversubscription.
  • Lineate odeIn this mode, only five alternate ports (ports 0, 2, 4, 6, and 8) are enabled. The PIC operates in line rate mode at 50 Gbps.

To configure the PIC in line rate mode, include the linerate-mode statement at the [edit chassis set fpc fpc-number pic pic-number] hierarchy level:

[edit chassis]set fpc fpc-number pic pic-number linerate-mode;

To return to the default oversubscribed Ethernet mode, delete the linerate-mode statement at the [edit chassis fpc fpc-number pic pic-number] hierarchy level.

Note: When the mode of operation of a PIC is changed, the PIC is taken offline and then brought back online immediately.
