I am looking to limit the transfer rate on a single interface of a 2960 switch. The problem I am having in determining where and how to configure the shaper. In doing a little reading on these forums there are hints that rate limiting "inbound" is not very effective, however, what I could not tell was whether this definition of inbound referred to inbound as in data outside of the local network or a more generic inbound on an interface.
I have attached a crude diagram to help clarify my confusion. Essentially, I would like to limit the transfer rate of the Server in the diagram to 4Mbps of traffic that is leaving our network and going out ot the internet. As nearly 100% of the traffic generated by this server is traffic leaving our network, I have no problem limiting the rate of the physical interface if thats possible and easier. But basically the traffic is "inbound" on FastE0/9, Outbound on Gig0/0 or Gig0/1 (these might be mislabeled numbers wise), inbound on Gig1/0/24, and outbound again on Gig1/0/23. In terms of interfaces, the limiting would be that traffic that started inbound on FastE0/9 should not go outbound on Gig1/0/23 any faster than 4Mbps. The server is in Vlan 200 configured on the main routers and for the purpose of this question is assigned an ip in the 192.168.0.248 /29 network.
What would be the best way of applying this shaper?
