I want to rate-limit a vlan to 200Mbps on a 1Gbps link. All traffic above the 200Mbps should be dropped. I have questions about the burst rates:
1) Are the burst rates (normal and max) optional parameters ?
2) If not, how can they be stated to most strictly enforce the 200mbps limit ?
The equation I've been advised to use for "normal" configuration is:
burst= rate/8 * 1.5
This equation doesn't seem right for limiting to a strict 200Mbps.
Any good links or ideas would be appreciated.
