max number of vlan interfaces

Hi everyone!

I took a look at the FAQs für the 5130/5700/5900 switches and saw, that they only support up to 32 vlan interfaces. There are some customers, who have more than 32 ip subnets and I want to avoid running out of interfaces.

Is there an overview for the comware based switches, about how many vlan interfaces are supported per switch? (assuming 1 ip subnet per vlan)

Thanks in advance,
  Chris

Re: max number of vlan interfaces

From a 2015 Japanese HP Networking Switch Catalog I was able to find:

  • HPE 5130 EI Switch Series: 32 VLANs
  • HPE 5500 HI Switch Series: 1024 VLANs
  • HPE 5500 EI Switch Series: 1024 VLANs
  • HPE 5700 Switch Series: 32 VLANs
  • HPE 5800 Switch Series: 1024 VLANs
  • HPE 5820 Switch Series: 1024 VLANs
  • HPE 5830 Switch Series: 1024 VLANs
  • HPE 5900 Switch Series: 1024 VLANs
  • HPE 5930 Switch Series: 1024 VLANs
  • HPE 7900 Switch Series: 4092 VLANs
  • HPE 10500 Switch Series: 1024 VLANs
  • HPE 12500E/12500 Switch Series: 4092 VLANs
  • HPE 12900 Switch Series: 4092 VLANs

The catalog reports 1k and 4k and I think who wrote meant referring to 1024 and 4092 respectively.

I don't know if those values are really updated and/or accurate but, at least, is a first list to start with.

Hi Parnassus!

Yes, it's a first list to start with. But there must be another way to find the information.

Perhaps someone else can provide another source o information.

Re: max number of vlan interfaces

I agree with you.

That HP Networking Switch Catalog (2015, Japan) is the only one - AFAIK - I was able to find that group together all (Comware-/ProVision-based) Switch families showing, side-by-side, features and characteristics...OK...you will say that it is written in japanese but, you know, an acronym is an acronym also in japanese...so it is quite easy to recognize on a lists/tables (See tables starting from sheet 52 of 76) what you are looking for about VLAN limits (so the sentence "VLAN インターフェイス (IP アドレス設定可能数 )" means basically "VLAN interface (number of configurable IP addresses)").

OTOH if you have a look at HPE Networking Product Portfolio Guide (2016) you will not be able to find the information you're looking for (there are a lot less details). Japaneses love details.
