I have been working on our companies QOS policies for the best part of a week. I think I have everything present and correct in terms of a base policy.
We have a few links that require some policing, I am having some trouble with the burst rates; I think I am on the right track, however I am worried I may not be.
If I want to police a specific class and we are limiting the rate to 10000000 bits per second, the equation below doesn't make much sense to me:
normal burst = configured rate * (1 byte)/(8 bits) * 1.5 seconds
Do I take my configured rate of 10000000 multiply by 8000(1 byte) then divide by 8(8 bits) and multiply by 1.5? Giving me 384000000?
This to me makes no sense, am I reading the equation wrong?
Thanks in advance
