Please help me!
I have looked over & over that the formula to configure CAR & it still makes no sense.
Can someone please explain this too me?
normal burst = configured rate * (1 byte)/(8 bits) * 1.5 seconds
extended burst = 2 * normal burst
Is the configured rate the first line of the rate limit command? IE: rate-limit 5000000
Is the configured rate applied to the formula in bits per second?
The way I seen it was.
I have a 10MB link & want to start my rate at 5MB.
So I take....
5000000 Bits per second * 1.5 seconds = 7500000 Bits per second as the committed burst /8 gives me 937500 Bytes per second which is the way you would enter it into the rate-limit command.
937500 Bytes per second * 2 = 1875000 Bytes per second for the excess burst rate.
Seems to me that now if you take all the numbers & add them together that the number is outragously higher than the orginal 10MB pipe size.
Am I nuts, or what?????
Thanks a bundle,
