Unanswered Question
Jan 23rd, 2008


I want to limit the bandwidth on the 2811 FE interface.

I'd like to bring it from 100 to 34 Mbps up and 34 MBPs down.

Could you please give me the sequence of command to apply in this case?

Thanks a lot,


I have this problem too.

(NB: syntax might be off)

policy-map Yourname

class class-default

police (or shape) 34 mbps

int fa #

service-policy Yourname output

service-policy Yourname input


I think a shaper or policer can also be used for input, as above, but it won't actually keep the traffic hitting the interface inbound to your restricted rate except as it's admitted to your router, internally. It's usually better to control traffic outbound.
