HI Mahesh,

interface Serial1/0.1/3/6/2:0

bandwidth 1024

The Interface is already defined with the BW of 1024 only.

Why do you require a Rate-limit on input / output traffic ?

Whether U can't ping from the same Router ?

Do add more INFO

HI Mahesh,

Could you please check whether 1Mb link is fully over-loaded with the Input / output traffic.

Because during peak line load situation of Business Traffic, there could be a possibility of drop in SNMP, ICMP and some other traffic.

In this situation, the ICMP and SNMP traffic will be given low-priority.

Pls Rate if HELPS

Hi Mahesh,

On a WAN interface a simple ping goes out to the other end and comes back and gives out the result. Basically performs a small loop test for connectivity check and gives you the result. I don't know how your network is setup but I thought I will post this to just you an understanding that pinging itself own interface on WAN is different compared to LAN. You can check the ping times to realise this. ping times to will be less than ping times to (ofcourse when it works :)

Are you sure the link is up and there is no other circuit on a redundant router on which a similar interface is up?

I am not familiar with rate limit usage but like others have pointed out the problem might be because of that since pings sourced from the other end is working but from local router it is getting dropped.

Can you post the other end of the configuration?
