Let's suppose my router's FR interface has a certain physical rate and that frame-relay traffic-shaping is configured on it.
(Actually, the connection between the routers is a point to point one, without FR switches between them).
Below this physical interface I defined a point-to-point subinterface and attached a "frame-relay class" with the "mincir" parameter configured to a certain rate below the CIR.
Now let's suppose that a burst of output traffic starts to congest my output queue, but "frame-relay adaptive-shaping becn" was not configured.
Â¿Will the router start to activate traffic shaping and drop close to the mincir as a result of this event?
In other words, I want to know if BECN is the only flow management procedure that will force the router to drop the output rate close to the mincir configured by the operator, or if output congestion is enough to signal the traffic shaping routines to start working.
Any help will be greatly appreciated.
