I want apply an inbound police policy on a WAN interface, I have all the traffic classes defined with the following statement "police cir percent," however what if I want to police the default traffic (traffic that is not matched by class map), what would the following do? Will this limit inbound best effort traffic to minimum of 25% and maximum of 50%?

class class-default
    bandwidth percent 25
    police cir percent 50

Best regards,

Hi Jaffer,

It should work. I tested it on 2800 and can see that "sh policy-map test" shows that the default traffic at 25 and 50.

policy-map test
class test
  priority 6144 3072
class class-default
  bandwidth percent 25
  police cir percent 50

T-1#sh policy-map test
  Policy Map test
    Class test
      Strict Priority
      Bandwidth 6144 (kbps) Burst 3072 (Bytes)
    Class class-default
      Bandwidth 25 (%) Max Threshold 64 (packets)
     police cir percent 50
       conform-action transmit
       exceed-action drop
