1) One for every interface.

2) If you're not trunking, one. If you are trunking, as many as you want.

Boy...

1) depends on the router. I think the 6509 supports 1028 or more vlans...You can certainly number vlans up to 4096 at least, but the actual limit is pretty high. How's that for precise.

2) I don't really think there's a physical limit on the number of subinterfaces you can put on a FE interface(there might be), but it might be more limited by performance degredation and your memory.

So, in a nutshell, what I'm saying is that the limitations of IOS running on a particular hardware platform are much higher than any sane person will probably use in a production environment. But sanity I'm sure is a relative parameter ;)

Can you?

Or Should you?

A lot of your decision is largely based on how much aggregate traffic you plan on seeing across these interfaces.

i.e. you could put a lot more low-traffic subinterfaces on a FastE than high-traffic ones.

The fact is you can add a lot more than is practical from a performance standpoint. On the 3660 it allows up to 1400 VLANS, but I would limit it to no more than a dozen per interface in most cases.
