I have a 3550-12g switch software Version 12.2(44)SE5 I have a customer that wants a 200meg connection…They're plugged into port 4 with a LX gbic…What would be the best way to only allow 200meg in or out of that port?

This should do it:

mls qos


policy-map SHAPE_ME

class class-default

police 200000000


interface GigabithEthernet0/1

service-policy output SHAPE_ME

service-policy input SHAPE_ME

Hello SG,

you can use modular QoS

service-policy {input policy-map-name | output policy-map-name}


output direction requires more care.

Policers can be configured only on a physical port or on a per-port per-VLAN basis (specifies the bandwidth limits for the traffic on a per-VLAN basis, for a given port). Per-port per-VLAN policing is not supported on routed ports or on virtual (logical) interfaces. It is supported only on an ingress port configured as a trunk or as a static-access port.

•Only one policer can be applied to a packet per direction.

Hope to help
