Performance comparison of switches/routers?

Good day!
There are small differences when comparing the network of iron.

Please do not poke at the famous table.

The switch has a parameter switch fabric — as I understand it the ability to process L2 traffic.

For example 3750 — 32gbps. that means 24 ports in full duplex upload does not work, right?

But the parameters are pps and Mbps at the routers is not very clear on what it makes sense to pay more attention?
Packages usually come in different sizes :) and really look at the pps probably not worth it...

it is not worth it, this is usually the most important parameter for the provider, as users of many small packets.
If you chase Jumbo frames between servers then of course you can not see.
mbps is megabits per second

1) L3 switches, in principle, do not care what the handle — L2 or L3 traffic.
2) Yes, the early 3750 have an internal oversubscription. But I don't think that you will be able to pour 24 Gigabit in a piece of metal with only one Gigabit ports. Damn not a trivial task. E and X line is already non-blocking.
3) Only pps determines the actual performance of the L2 and L3 logic. However, for large packages, you can depend on the interfaces before the possibility of iron processing packages.
