3560 Switch, Traffic Shaping, General Configuration Questions

Unanswered Question
Aug 16th, 2007

I have recently purchased two new 3560 series switches, and am preparing to configure them to help resolve certain traffic flow problems within our networks.

Can anyone provide an example configuration applicable to the 3560 series switches that would accomplish the following:

Rate limiting specific ports to 512kbps in total.

Utilize traffic shaping features to limit http traffic on specific ports to 256kbps.

Utilize traffic shaping/qos features to prioritize VOIP traffic.

Any other config links that may be applicable that can be supplied would be appreciated. I am very green in IOS.

I have this problem too.

The 3560 does not support service-policy in the outbound direction.

IF you want to configure it in the inbound direction, you can do something like this

ip access-list extended http

permit tcp any any eq http

policy-map child-policy

class VoIP

priority 128

class http

police cir 256000 conform-action-transmit exceed-action-drop

policy-map parent-policy

class class-default

shape average 512000

service-policy child-policy

class-map match-all VoiP

Match ip dscp EF

class-map match-all http

match access group name http


service-policy input parent-policy

HTH, rate if it does
