Metroethernet QoS..

Hi all,

We are using Metro Ethernet between HQ and Branch. On HQ, there is a 4506 and on Branch, there is a 4506. and the physical speed is 1Gbps each other but Service Provider is limeted to 10Mbps.

What I want to do are ..

1. Limit the HTTP Traffic to 3Mbps

2. Guarantee the EIGRP Traffic to 1Mbps.

3. Other Traffic are changed fair queue

4. Other traffic are RED.

Configuration is ...(On HQ side..)

ip access-list extended EIGRP

permit eigrp any any


ip access-list extended WWW

permit tcp any any eq www


class-map EIGRP_CLASS

match access-group name EIGRP


class-map WWW_CLASS

match access-group name WWW


policy-map POL_EIGRP_HTTP


bandwidth percent 10


police 3000000 300000 conform-action

transmit exceed-action drop

class class-default




int gig 1/1

service-policy output POL_EIGRP_HTTP

bandwidth 10000



Is that work out ?

Someone thinks I was wrong.

Normaly When we use a Metro Ethernet, ISP limit the bandwidth based on the contract.

In this case We contracted 10Mbps but the Physical bandwidth is 1Gbps and then If I configure the QoS like above, this will not work out, because ISP is not interest in our traffic priority, they are only interest in bandwidth even though QoS Configuration. So When we send more than 10Mbps, They will discard some packet including the EIGRP & HTTP.

So Resolution is We should send less than 10Mbps to guarantee EIGRP & HTTP traffic.

Is that right ?

Another question is

If I configure the bandwidth of an interface gig 1/1 from 1Gbps to 10Mbps, Is the traffic is limited to 10Mbps ?
