MQC for Shaping Traffic at 75% Utilization

Unanswered Question
Jan 28th, 2009

Can someone provide me an MQC sample config to start shaping traffic once a curcuit hits 75% utilization? I don't want to limit any specific host(s) or protocol. It will be used on varying wan speeds (T1, T3, Multilinks). Again the key word is shape NOT police. Thanks in advance.

I have this problem too.

Normally, shaping restricts allowable bandwidth. We can shape traffic at 75% of a link's bandwidth, which is rather pointless unless we're trying to guarantee 25% for other traffic. Even then, I would consider CBWFQ bandwidth provisioning a better choice.

What you're asking, to start shaping at 75% doesn't make sense since there's no congestion, unless, as above, we keep some traffic from exceeding 75%.

If you could further describe what you're trying to accomplish. Someone might be able to provide the MQC sample that would provide it.
