ME3400E and bandwidth limiting

Unanswered Question


We recently purchased the ME-3400-EG-12CS-M switch and would like to limit one of the ports to 6meg up and down.

I have the following configuration in place ofr the output.

policy-map out-test

class class-default

shape average 6000000

int g 0/12

service-policy output out-test

Is there a better way of doing this with other commands?

In the docs it says you cannot use the shape on an input policy.

I was looking through the other thread s and saw examples of policy maps with the police command. Would that be better to use?

Finally, the interface has the rate-limit command available. Should I use that?

basically I would like to limit the bandwidth to 6 meg up and down.

The input queue is different than the output queue. The output queue, you can buffer the traffic and shape it to the desire rate, but the input queue, you can not buffer, this is the reason you can only policy/rate-limit the input queue.
