My research has lead me to 2 areas for configuration of shaping. Apply shaping on class-map and/or the policy-map??
Objective = limit subnet to 256K at all times.
Access-list 1 permit <subnet>
Match access-group 1
bandwidth 256000 (not sure if this is required/relevant)
shape peak 256000
(perhaps shaping should be applied here??)
service-policy output 256K_choke (FYI data to be choked comes in on interface abc and out on xyz)
I understand from my previous discussion/port that shaping will provide users on subnet xyz with better performance as buffering would be used should bandwidth increase above 256K.
This is my previous solution with policy
/* Style Definitions */
mso-padding-alt:0cm 5.4pt 0cm 5.4pt;
font-family:"Times New Roman";
access-list 1 permit <subnet>
match access-group 1
police 256000 conform-action transmit exceed-action drop violate-action drop
service-policy output subn_rate_limit
Am on on the right track?
