Re: Service-policy direction question

Hi John,

This depends on what actions you're applying.

Some examples:

Shaping - only applicable outbound

Policing - can be either, depending if you are limiting what you are sending(out) or limiting what you want to receive(in).

Marking - depends if you want to mark what you're receiving (in), or mark what you're sending (out)

WRED - out

Frame Relay traffic shaping - out
