I'm deploying Cisco ASA in a new project and I need to configure Hierarchical priority queuing with traffic shapping, but Cisco released the note below and appear to not exist more this feature on ASA. I would like to know what Cisco recommend as a option?
Note Traffic shaping is only supported on the ASA 5505, 5510, 5520, 5540, and 5550. Multi-core models (such as the ASA 5500-X) do not support shaping.
Well as you already check there is no way to have traffic shapping configured on a multi-core ASA.
So you should be looking to a different QoS to satisfy the network needs on the ASA side. In this case I only see policing as the other available option for traffic rate-limiting but I think we would agree the behavior of this 2 are way different.
Yeah, I know the difference and because of this I really interesting on use shapping and not policing. I don't see the reason to Cisco remove this feature. As a Cisco employee you know why? I don't believe that is a hardware limitation...
