Limit speed of Port-channel interface on Nexus 5548
We are going to be moving our Datacenter to a Colo facility soon. We currently have our datacenter in a different building from our main staff connected by fiber across 2 gig interfaces in a port channel.
I would like to limit the speed of this port channel to 10mb to simulate the WAN link at the Colo as a test. When I run the Speed ? command on that po interface on the Nexus my lowest choice is 100mb. Is there a way to crank this down to 10mb just for testing purposes?
I ended up contacting support to see what could be done. This is the response.
Here are the commands you may use to limit traffic ingressing on that port to 10 mbps or the rate you want to.
ip access-list limit-acl
10 permit ip any any
class-map type qos match-all limit-qos-cmap
match access-group name limit-acl
policy-map type qos limit-qos-pmap
set qos-group 2
police cir 10 mbps bc 250 ms
service-policy type qos input limit-qos-pmap
>> Nexus platform doesn’t support all the qos features for it being majorly a datacenter switch and therefore you could only limit traffic inbound to that port but outbound traffic policing isn’t really supported. This should limit traffic in one side atleast.
We are pleased to announce availability of Beta software for 16.6.3. 16.6.3 will be the second rebuild on the 16.6 release train targeted towards Catalyst 9500/9400/9300/3850/3650 switching platforms. We are looking for early feedback from custome...
