6509 CaTOS Policing question

Unanswered Question

We have a 6509 with Sup720 running 8.6(4). We configured two GigE port 2/13 and 2/14 as trunk allowing VLAN 101.

We want to apply a policer to limit traffic on 2/13. Below is what I did:

set qos enable

set qos policer microflow MIC-P1 rate 100000 burst 100 drop

set qos acl ip IP-ACL3 trust-cos microflow MIC-P1 ip any any

commit qos acl all

set qos acl map IP-ACL3 2/13

Then I inject 500Mbps traffic on both 2/13 and 2/14, and I get 500Mbps traffic out of both ports too. It seems the policing on 2/13 does not take effect. Can anyone help me out?

I finally know why it did not work before: microflow polcier only affect traffic routed by MSFC, I need to use the following command to make my configuration work:

set qos bridged-microflow-policing enable

Thank you for your reply,
