I was curios to know what the limitations were for VRF implementations on the following Cisco chassis,

6500 series chassis,

4500 series chassis,

Also on another note, what does the 6500 provide in terms of features that the 4500 won't.

Your question is very broad typically designers would use Cisco feature navigator to determine supported features by a certain Hardware platform and Software.

Actually just looking for the number of VRF's each platform will support.  

Agreed, I could have worded it better,

Sectel,

on chassis based switches, it depends on the supervisor card model installed.

The 6500 supports firewall, wifi manager and other special module types, that the 4500 does not. Also, it's higher performance.

Hi Tamas

Good info,

In regards to the performance, can the 6500 support more instances of VRF and if so, would you know the numbers,
