Difference between tunnels and circuits

What is the difference between tunnels and circuits?  It is better to have a tunnel to circuit ratio of 1:1 or 1:many?  Why?

I am speaking mainly on FCIP configurations on a 7800.

Thanks!

Re: Difference between tunnels and circuits

Am FCIP Tunnel can consist of one or more circuits.

If you define more circuit per FCIP tunnel, you'll have more redundancy (on tunnel level)

I understand that part.  I am trying to understand if I am better off with having two tunnels with one circuit each or one tunnel and two circuits?

And two tunnels with multiple circuits?

Do you have a full 7800 or de 7800e one?

Re: Difference between tunnels and circuits

Right now I have 4 tunnels with one circuit each.  I am trying to understand why I don't have one tunnel with 4 circuits.  It's a full 7800.
