Memory Capacities
This document describes how to upgrade both dynamic memory and Cisco Flash memory. 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.
Cisco 3600 series routers use two types of dynamic memory:
Note
•
DRAM SIMMs (Cisco 3620 and Cisco 3640 routers)
•
SDRAM DIMMs (Cisco 3631 and Cisco 3660 routers)
SIMMs and DIMMs are not interchangeable.
Memory capacities are shown in Table 1.

Memory Configurations
For information on configuring dynamic (DRAM and SDRAM) and Cisco Flash memory, see the
following sections.
Dynamic Memory
You can configure DRAM or 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
To configure the proportion of DRAM or SDRAM devoted to main memory and to shared memory,
enter the memory-size iomem command in global configuration mode.
Note
For information about these and related commands, refer to the Cisco IOS configuration guides and
command references. See the “Obtaining Documentation” section on page 38 for information about
these publications.
DRAM SIMMs (Cisco 3620 and Cisco 3640 Routers)
Cisco 3620 and Cisco 3640 routers each contain four SIMM sockets for DRAM: bank 0 (SIMM 0),
bank 1 (SIMM 1), bank 2 (SIMM 2), and bank 3 (SIMM 3). A socket corresponds to one bank of
memory. Each socket can hold one DRAM SIMM of any size permitted for that router.
Banks must be filled consecutively with no gaps. Start filling from bank 0, and start emptying from
bank 3. Bank 0 must always be filled first and emptied last.
DRAM supports 32-bit and 64-bit operation as follows:
•
Cisco 3620: Supports 32-bit operation only.
•
Cisco 3640: Supports either 32- or 64-bit operation. Router performance is approximately 20
percent slower in 32-bit mode than in 64-bit mode. To use 64-bit mode, you must install DRAM
SIMMs in pairs of the same size. Generally, basic software feature sets (such as IP) use 32-bit
DRAM SIMMs and robust software feature sets (such as Enterprise) use 64-bit DRAM SIMMs.
Follow these rules to use 64-bit operation:
•
SIMMs in banks 0 and 1 must:
– Be the same size (in megabytes)
Upgrading System Memory in Cisco 3600 Series Routers
78-3636-05

Memory Configurations
– Have the same access time (in nanoseconds).
•
SIMMs in banks 2 and 3 must:
– Be the same size (in megabytes), and the same size as or smaller than those in banks 0 and 1
– Have the same access time (in nanoseconds)
Thus, only certain combinations of DRAM SIMMs are permitted:
•
Combinations for 32-bit configurations used in Cisco 3620 routers are shown in Table 2.
•
Combinations for 32-bit configurations used in Cisco 3640 routers are shown in Table 3.
•
Combinations for 64-bit configurations used in Cisco 3640 routers are shown in Table 4.

SDRAM DIMMs (Cisco 3631 and Cisco 3660 Routers)
Cisco 3631 and Cisco 3660 routers each contain two DIMM sockets for SDRAM: bank 0 (DIMM 0) and
bank 1 (DIMM 1). A socket corresponds to one bank of memory. Each socket can hold one SDRAM
DIMM of any size permitted for that router. The other socket can optionally be left empty.
Banks must be filled in the following order:
•
Cisco 3631: Fill in any order.
•
Cisco 3660: Fill from bank 0, and empty from bank 1. Bank 0 must always be filled first and
emptied last.
DIMM parity is as follows:
•
Cisco 3631: Nonparity DIMMs
•
Cisco 3660: Both parity and nonparity DIMMs
Note
An advantage to using parity DIMMs compared to nonparity DIMMs is easier identification
of memory errors. A disadvantage is lower performance.
Only certain combinations of SDRAM DIMM sizes are permitted:
•
Cisco 3631: There is no limitation on the relative size of DIMMs in bank 1 and bank 0, as shown in
Table 5.
•
Cisco 3660: The DIMM in bank 1 must be the same size as or smaller than the DIMM in bank 0, as
shown in Table 6.

Memory Configurations
Step 1
To see how much Cisco Flash memory is currently installed in your router, enter the show flash
command in EXEC mode.
You can upgrade Cisco Flash memory by doing either or both of the following:
•
Cisco 3631: Replace the existing card with one of greater capacity.
Note
•
For instructions on how to install a Cisco Flash memory card, refer to documentation on
installing and configuring or formatting Cisco Flash memory, available online at
http://www.cisco.com/univercd/cc/td/doc/product/access/acs_mod/cis3600/hw_inst/hw_no

Cisco 3620, Cisco 3640, and Cisco 3660: Do either or both of the following:
– Replace the existing (typically 4-MB) SIMM with one of greater capacity.
– Add a SIMM to the second Cisco Flash memory socket.
Each Cisco Flash memory SIMM socket corresponds to one bank of memory. Fill starting with bank 0,
and empty starting with bank 1. Bank 0 must always be filled first and emptied last.
Specifics for the Cisco 3620, Cisco 3640, and Cisco 3660 routers are listed in the following table and

electrical accident occurs, you can quickly shut the power OFF.
•
Before working on the router, turn OFF the power and unplug the power cord.
•
Disconnect all power before doing the following:
– Installing or removing a router chassis
– Working near power supplies
– Performing most hardware upgrades
•
Do not work alone if potentially hazardous conditions exist.
•
Never assume that power is disconnected from a circuit. Always check.
•
Look carefully for possible hazards in your work area, such as moist floors, ungrounded power
extension cables, and missing safety grounds.
•
If an electrical accident occurs, proceed as follows:
– Use caution; do not become a victim yourself.
– Turn OFF power to the router.
– If possible, send another person to get medical aid. Otherwise, determine the condition of the
victim and then call for help.

appropriate action.
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.

Testing ROM Installation
Warning
Read the installation instructions before you connect the system to its power source. To see
translations of the warnings that appear in this publication, refer to the Regulatory Compliance and
Safety Information document that accompanied this device.
Step 1
Replace all network connections.
Step 2
Do one of the following:
•
AC-powered router: Plug the power cord into a 3-terminal, single-phase power source that
provides power within the acceptable range (100 to 240 VAC, 50 to 60 Hz).
•
DC-powered router: Remove the tape from the circuit breaker switch handle and reinstate power
by moving the handle of the circuit breaker to the ON position.
Step 3
Turn ON the power switch. The power LED on the front panel of the router should go ON.
Step 4
Check the OK LED on the right side of the front panel to verify that it goes ON after a few seconds
delay when booting.
Step 5
If you have problems and you replaced the ROM, see the next section, “Testing ROM Installation.”
Otherwise, see the “Obtaining Technical Assistance” section on page 39.
Testing ROM Installation
If you installed a new ROM, the router should boot into the ROM monitor or Cisco IOS software. Follow
these steps if you suspect that the ROM is inserted incorrectly:
Step 1
Remove the cover or mainboard tray, as described in the “Opening the Router” section on page 14.
Step 2
Complete the sequence described in the “Replacing ROM” section on page 29.
Step 3
Replace the cover, as described in the “Closing the Router” section on page 33.
Step 4
Try booting the router again.
Step 5
If the problem persists, see the “Obtaining Technical Assistance” section on page 39.
Recovering Cisco Flash Memory and System Images
If you have increased system Cisco Flash memory or reduced DRAM or SDRAM in a Cisco 3600 series
router, you might need to reload the Cisco IOS image, use the following ROM monitor command:
•
xmodem—If the computer attached to your console has a terminal emulator that has xmodem
capability.
For complete information about ROM monitor commands, refer to Software Configuration Guide for
Cisco 2600, Cisco 3600, and Cisco 3700 Series Routers, available online at
http://www.cisco.com/univercd/cc/td/doc/product/access/acs_mod/index.htm

Obtaining Documentation
Using the xmodem Command
If the system image is erased from Cisco 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 parameter 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.
