Maximum number of virtual routing interfaces on the ICX switches?



From configuration guide for ICX switches: 


"the total number of virtual routing interfaces that are configured must not exceed the systemmax limit of 512 (or 255 for the ICX 7250)."


Can i use inter-VLAN routing between more than 512 VLANs on the same switch? Or 512 VE interfaces is the maximum limit for the ICX platform?

512 (255 for 7250) is indeed the maximum number of Interface VEs supported on ICX platform as it stands.


This can be verified ,along with other system values, using the command "show default values"
