IPSEC tunnels of Cisco ISR routers

a9562055 asked
Last Modified: 2012-05-09
The link below states the max tunnels each cisco device can establish.


My questions are,

1. What is the IOS cli command to check how many tunnels are established presently,
say on ISR 2800 series?

2. What is the meaning of "Maximum number of IPSec Tunnels" ?
Does this mean

a . The maximum number of configuration below for example,
crypto isakmp key 6 toshin10 address OR

b. The maximum number of SAs below for example One ACLs for one SA.
Therefore, if we have 6 ACLs, 6 SAs are created.
 Also, routers at counter part creates 6 SAs.
Altogether we have 12 SAs.
