Questions on policy-maps

Unanswered Question
Nov 9th, 2009

I'm looking to configure policy-maps to implement bandwidth levels and I had a question:

Using police command, what does the burst subcommand actually affect? Is this the amount of bandwidth that can exceed the average rate?

I have this problem too.

It indirectly determines what time period is being used to measure the transmission rate. Realize a policer (or shaper) allows traffic at full link/interface bandwidth rate, the CIR (and/or PIR) is based on an amount of bits transfered during some time period.
