Hi Michael,

1. You can first define the access-list for the traffic either sorced or destined to depending on on which interface you will rate-limit the traffic.

If it is sourced from it then

access-list 160 permit ip host any

If it is destination then

access-list 160 permit ip any host

2. define a class-map:

class-map access-match

match access-group 160

3. policy-map police-setting

class access-match

police 256000 1000 1000 conform-action transmit exceed-action drop

4. Apply to the interface (depends on which direction you want to apply it )

service-policy output police-setting


service-policy input police-setting

5. You can see if it is configured properly and its working by "show policy-map interface
