Dear All, I have configured policies to shape the traffic on the interface of cisco 7206 router. Now my managemet wants to configure these policies on time based ie policy should be applicable during specified time period onle. Is it possible? if yes how to configure it?
Yes. You can use the time range anywhere an acl can be used as far as I know...

You can do it depending on how your class maps are set up. If you're classifying traffic with an acl, you can create a time range and then apply that time range to your acl. Let's say that you want to shape web traffic between the hours of 8am and 10am, but anytime after that is not shaped and has 100% of the link:
periodic 08:00 to 10:00
ip access-list ext Web
permit tcp any any eq 80 time-range Web
match access-group name Web
shape average 128000
service-policy output Web
This would shape their traffic only between those hours.
