Ok. Here's the deal. I want to shape traffic using the shape command on a router, i might have very bursty traffic that will hammer the network for a small amount of time (30ms), and then be silent for a few seconds. This traffic doesn't depend on RTT.
I was thinking of creating my policy-map to shape the traffic to 5% of the line speed and then shape over the next 2 seconds. I assume that I would have to inscrese the size of the buffers to the maximum too.
So say at 10ms a huge burst of traffic came in that was matches in this class-map, would this then be sent for the next 2000ms (2s)?
shape average percent 5 2000 ms
shape max-buffers 4096
