Configuring policy-based resource management and hardware profiles

The policy-based resource management feature allows users to make better use of hardware resources. In particular, pre-made profiles are provided that optimize ASIC resources for Keep-Alive Protocol (KAP) profiles, route-table profiles, and ternary content-addressable memory (TCAM) profiles. The profiles are enabled by keywords available under the hardware-profile command in RBridge ID configuration mode. The switched-based hardware profile configuration is local to an RBridge within a VCS Fabric.

This is a disruptive command. In order for the last update of the hardware profile configuration to take effect on a switch, the switch has to be rebooted. In logical chassis cluster mode, use the reload system command. In fabric cluster mode, execute the copy running-config startup-config command, followed by the reload system command.
