Per-port buffer sizes

The HP ProCurve Switch 8200zl, 5400zl, 3500, and 6200yl series have eight hardware queues to which
prioritized traffic can be assigned . Software can designate a certain amount of output memory buffer for
each queue to minimize the impact from events that exceed line rate such as bursty network traffic . Users can
choose to configure the number of queues—2, 4, or 8—so that they can optimize the amount of memory buffer
per queue for their applications . For example, if a user has only 2 priorities on the network, that user should
configure for 2 queues so that all the buffer memory is assigned to only 2 queues . The following tables identify
the buffer sizes allocated on a per-port basis to the normal and other priority queues in each configuration .

Routing and forwarding tables
The HP ProCurve Switch 8200zl, 5400zl, 3500, and 6200yl series have several routing and forwarding table
features that enhance routing and switching performance .
Every line interface module has its own "best match prefix" routing table that contains IP routes and is used
for determining how to route the vast majority of incoming packets . Using the best match prefix routing table is
extremely fast and enables wire-speed routing to be achieved .
If the best match prefix routing table does not contain an entry that can be used to determine the route of a
received packet, then the main routing table is used . The main routing table can contain up to 10,000 routing
table entries .
For Layer 2 forwarding, each switch has a forwarding or MAC table that can contain up to 65,536 entries .
