Outbound Traffic Shaping

Unanswered Question
Feb 8th, 2008


I'm wondering how I can shape my outbound traffic?

I'm sending over SCP from a pc to the internet and would like to limit this to 20kb/sec.

How would this be done?

I have this problem too.

You want to shape it or limit it ? Those are two different QoS techniques.

What type of hardware are we dealing with?

First, you want to create an ACL to include what you want to Qos.

Second, you want to create a class-map that calls for the ACL.

Third, you want to create a policy-map that calls the class-map and applies the desired police policy.

Fourth, you apply the policy-map to the interface.

ip access-list extended SCP

permit ..................

class-map SCP

match access-group name SCP

policy-map SCP

class SCP

police cir 20000

conform-action transmit

exceed-action drop

class class-default


interface sx/x

service-policy output SCP

Please note, I did this from the top of my head so please verify the syntax in the router :)
