I am trying to do a test of some thin clients internally at my office and I want to emulate T1 bandwidth on a switchport so I can get an idea of how they will perform at the other end of a T1 link.
I have been using a policy-map to achieve the bandwidth policing, but I am not sure it is working. Here is what I have done: (G0/2 is the downlink port to the switch the thin clients are connected to.)
police 1544000 193000 exceed-action drop
description Trunk to test switch
switchport mode trunk
service-policy output Test_Limit
I used one of those bandwidth testers on the Internet and got the 9.3Mb/s result both before and after I applied the policy.
Am I doing this correctly, or is there a better way?
For reference, the switch I am applying the policy on is a C3560-24PS running 12.2(25)SEE and the test switch with the thin clients is a C2960-24TT-L running 12.2(35)SE5.
