Below is an example to rate limit on ports using policy map

Switch(config)# access-list 1 permit

Switch(config)# class-map ipclass1

Switch(config-cmap)# match access-group 1

Switch(config-cmap)# exit

Switch(config)# policy-map flow1t

Switch(config-pmap)# class ipclass1

Switch(config-pmap-c)# police 5000000 8192 exceed-action dscp 10

Switch(config-pmap-c)# exit

Switch(config-pmap)# exit

Switch(config)# interface gigabitethernet0/1

Switch(config-if)# switchport mode access

Switch(config-if)# service-policy input flow1t

Hi Hitesh,

Thank you for reply...

Ratelimit config for 2950, as you told will it work for all the ports or only perticler port.

I need to configure the ratelimit for particler port of 2950 only, will it work same configure,

or any changes are required.

you define your traffic class with class-map then set the rate limit and other settings under a policy-map, then you can associate the policy-map to any switchport you want, using the service-policy command.

but be careful when you define your traffic class (class-map), because the rate limit only applies to that traffic class.

in Hitesh example:

The rate limit only applies to traffic from subnet comming into interface Gi0/1, limit is 5Mbps and burst size of 8Kpbs and if it exceeds the 5mbps limit, the switch sets the dscp value the packets in that flow to 10, which i think you want to drop instead.

plz Rate if it helped.
