What's the limit of VRRP instances per group?

Hi All,

I need to get as many as I can into one group and am in search of the limit.  I have two 6509-E's and want to stick all the IDF's in this one building in the same VRRP group.

Cheers,

RP

Hey! Greetings.
What Cisco says:

You can configure up to 255 virtual routers on a router physical interface. The actual number of virtual routers that a router interface can support depends on the following factors:

    Router processing capability
    Router memory capability
    Router interface support of multiple MAC addresses

In a topology where multiple virtual routers are configured on a router interface, the interface can act as a master for one virtual router and as a backup for one or more virtual routers.

It means that you can use 255 different group per physical interface and per SVI on Catalyst switch.

You should be able to configure 255 groups but you will be limited to 16 addresses in each group.
