Shaping / Quota

Unanswered Question

Our topology consists of 1x 3700 trunk to 8x 3560 switch stack. We use VLANs per department with different network address per VLAN.

Basically, we want to shape a specific VLAN to a speed once they reach a quota (10Gig download)...

Is this possible running a simple network?

We are using 3700 Software (C3725-ADVSECURITYK9-M), Version 12.4(7c) and Cisco standard IOS on our switch stack.

Otherwise, I may have to use time-range QOA to shape traffic on specific time of the day.

I am not aware of a mechanism which can do it on basis of a total quota, but we can shape it based on the rate of transfer (which will be a good way) on congested interfaces. Also you can probably calculate the rate based on download allowed per day and allow the same.


it might be useful.

Hi Naveen,

Thanks, I thought so.

I know it requires 3rd party application to set quota.

Ill check the document you posted.
