Memory Capacities
You might need to upgrade memory for the following reasons:
•
To upgrade to a new Cisco IOS feature set or release that requires additional memory. (Memory
requirements for each feature set and release are available in the release notes for that release.)
•
To use very large routing tables, many protocols (as may be required, for example, when the router
is part of both a large external network and your internal network), or other memory-intensive
features such as spoofing or protocol translations.
This document describes how to upgrade both dynamic memory and compact flash memory. Cisco 3700
series routers use dynamic memory in the form of SDRAM DIMMs (Cisco 3725 router) or SDRAM
SODIMMs (Cisco 3745 router). Memory capacities are shown in Table 1.

Memory Configurations
Memory Configurations
For information on configuring dynamic memory and compact flash memory, see the following sections.
Dynamic Memory
You can configure dynamic memory (SDRAM) as a mixture of primary or main memory that is reserved
for the CPU and shared memory that is used for data transmitted or received by modules and WAN
interface cards.
To examine current dynamic memory status or reconfigure memory allocation, do the following, as
appropriate:
Step 1
To see how much memory is currently installed in your router, enter the show version command in
EXEC mode. Near the middle of the resulting output, locate a message similar to the following:
Cisco XXXX processor (revision X) with 24576K/8192K bytes of memory.
This line shows how much memory is installed (in this example, 24576K/8192K). The first number
represents primary memory; the second number represents shared memory.
Step 2
Note
To configure the proportion of SDRAM devoted to main memory and to shared memory, enter the
memory-size iomem command in global configuration mode.
For information about these and related commands, refer to the Cisco IOS configuration guides and
command references. See the “Obtaining Documentation” section on page 27 for information about
these publications.
Dynamic memory resides in one or two sockets in the router chassis. A socket corresponds to one bank
of memory. Cisco 3700 series router sockets are as follows:
•
Cisco 3725: Two sockets, each of which can support one SDRAM DIMM or be left empty; sockets
can be filled in any order
•
Cisco 3745: One socket that can support two SDRAM SODIMMs, one on top of the other
SDRAM DIMM and SODIMM sizes allowed in each router type, and the total memory capacity
resulting from insertion of one or two DIMMs or SODIMMs, are shown in Table 2.

Tools and Equipment Needed
Preventing Electrostatic Discharge Damage
Electrostatic discharge (ESD) can damage equipment and impair electrical circuitry. ESD can occur
when electronic printed circuit cards are improperly handled, and can result in complete or intermittent
failures. Always follow ESD-prevention procedures when removing and replacing cards. Ensure that the
router chassis is electrically connected to earth ground. Wear an ESD-preventive wrist strap, ensuring
that it makes good skin contact. Connect the clip to an unpainted surface of the chassis frame to safely
channel unwanted ESD voltages to ground. To properly guard against ESD damage and shocks, you must
use the wrist strap and cord properly. If no wrist strap is available, ground yourself by touching the metal
part of the chassis.
Caution
For safety, periodically check the resistance value of the antistatic strap. It should be between 1 and 10
megohms (Mohms).
Caution
Before opening the chassis, be sure that you have discharged all static electricity from your body and the
power is off.
Tools and Equipment Needed
You need the following tools and equipment to remove and install DIMMs or SODIMMs in a Cisco 3700
series router:
•
Number 2 Phillips screwdriver
•
Small flat-blade screwdriver
•
ESD-preventive wrist strap
•

Recovering Compact Flash Memory and System Images
Recovering Compact Flash Memory and System Images
If you have increased system compact flash memory or reduced DRAM or SDRAM in a Cisco 3700
series router, you might need to reload the Cisco IOS image, using the xmodem command in ROM
monitor mode. To use this command, the computer attached to your console must have a terminal
emulator that has xmodem capability.
For complete information about ROM monitor commands, refer to Software Configuration Guide for
Cisco 2600 Series, Cisco 3600 Series, and Cisco 3700 Series Routers, available online at the following
URL:
http://www.cisco.com/univercd/cc/td/doc/product/access/acs_mod/index.htm
Using the xmodem Command
If the system image is erased from compact flash memory, the xmodem command establishes a
connection between a console and the router console or auxiliary port for disaster recovery.
xmodem [filename]—Establishes an xmodem connection between the console and the router. The
optional argument filename specifies the source file containing the Cisco IOS image.
Other options are:
-c—Use cyclic redundancy check (CRC-16).
-y—Use Ymodem transfer protocol.
-r—Copy the image to DRAM for launch.
-x—Do not launch image on completion of download.

Submitting a Service Request
Using the online TAC Service Request Tool is the fastest way to open S3 and S4 service requests. (S3
and S4 service requests are those in which your network is minimally impaired or for which you require
product information.) After you describe your situation, the TAC Service Request Tool automatically
provides recommended solutions. If your issue is not resolved using the recommended resources, your
service request will be assigned to a Cisco TAC engineer. The TAC Service Request Tool is located at
this URL:
http://www.cisco.com/techsupport/servicerequest
For S1 or S2 service requests or if you do not have Internet access, contact the Cisco TAC by telephone.
(S1 or S2 service requests are those in which your production network is down or severely degraded.)
Cisco TAC engineers are assigned immediately to S1 and S2 service requests to help keep your business
operations running smoothly.
To open a service request by telephone, use one of the following numbers:
Asia-Pacific: +61 2 8446 7411 (Australia: 1 800 805 227)
EMEA: +32 2 704 55 55
USA: 1 800 553 2447
For a complete list of Cisco TAC contacts, go to this URL:

Definitions of Service Request Severity
To ensure that all service requests are reported in a standard format, Cisco has established severity
definitions.
Severity 1 (S1)—Your network is “down,” or there is a critical impact to your business operations. You
and Cisco will commit all necessary resources around the clock to resolve the situation.
Severity 2 (S2)—Operation of an existing network is severely degraded, or significant aspects of your
business operation are negatively affected by inadequate performance of Cisco products. You and Cisco
will commit full-time resources during normal business hours to resolve the situation.
Severity 3 (S3)—Operational performance of your network is impaired, but most business operations
remain functional. You and Cisco will commit resources during normal business hours to restore service
to satisfactory levels.
Severity 4 (S4)—You require information or assistance with Cisco product capabilities, installation, or
configuration. There is little or no effect on your business operations.
