I have 2 Cisco 6509 core switches, both of which have 2 WS-X6748-SFP blades each, 48 port SFP blades for fiber links etc. My boss decided he wanted to know the temps the core switches are running and the "show environmental temp all" showed these blades are running between 104 and 108 degrees Fahrenheit.

Is this a normal temp for these blades? I have looked around on Cisco's site and can find max operating temps, but nothing showing what temp is normal so to speak for them to run at.

I know load can change the running temps, number of SFP's etc.., but I am trying to find out if these are normal temps. The data center room is kept at 70 degrees.

Thanks in advance,
