Hello Mohan,

if you want to limit to 1 Mbps all traffic that goes from each branch router to the central site you need to use traffic shaping.

you can take advantage of Class Based Traffic Shaping:

policy-map shape-1mbps

class default

shape average 1000000

! to call a child policy

service-policy policy_child

you can also implement a two level QoS by calling a CBWFQ child policy so that you emulate a pipe of 1 Mbps and you also provide differianted QoS to different traffic classes


if you like you can adjust the bandwidth parameter to 1 Mbps and EIGRP will use by default up to 50% of the stated BW for its updates

Hope to help
