I have multiple customers connecting to a single "aggregate" WAN router at a location for access to remote sites. I need to guarantee each customer a certain percentage of the overall available bandwidth and at the same time prioritize their traffic accordingly within this percentage boundary. For instance, customer A should receive 25% of the DS3 (45Mbps) and Customer A VOIP should receive 30% of the 25% allocated to Customer A.
I tried to accomplish this using a nested policy-map statement, but IOS puked at me and said nested policy-maps are usable with traffic shaping only. Does anyone know how to do this without creating individual class maps for each service defined for each customer? This is highly unscalable and would have to be completely tweaked every time a customer came online. For instance, 7 customers at a site with 5 prioritized services would require a total of 35 class maps. If customer 8 comes online, I will have to create the 5 class maps for the customer and adjust the bandwidth percentages allocated to the previous 35 maps. A nested service policy would have been cool because I could allocate bandwidth once to a customer and then break-out the separate services withinâ¦
Thanks in advance for any help provided.
