forwarding-profile (default-profile | host-acl-profile | host-profile | lpm-profile)

Configure the profile for the unified forwarding table.

  • default-profile—MAC: 32K, L3-host: 32K, LPM: 720K, FP-Compression: 18K. Restarts PFE.

  • host-acl-profile—MAC: 160K, L3-host: 160K, LPM: 65K, FP-Compression: 18K. Restarts PFE.

  • host-profile—MAC: 160K, L3-host: 160K, LPM: 72K, FP-Compression: 0. Restarts PFE.

  • lpm-profile—MAC: 32K, L3-host: 32K, LPM: 1.24M, ARP: 61K, FP-Compression: 0, Tunnels: 0. Restarts PFE.


Set the hardware database profile.

  • (balanced | balanced-exem | l2-xl | l3-xl)—Select the profile type. Restarts PFE.

  • (Mandatory) lpm-distribution (1 | 2 | 200 | 3 | 4)—Specify route distribution between public and private (VRF/VPN) routes in longest prefix match (LPM). Default is 1.
