What is the purpose of bandwidth inherit command ?

The bandwidth command on a router/switch, is just a logical value, that processes on the router use to calculate, things such as Routing Protocol Metrics, QoS, etc.

By setting 'bandwidth 16000', this will not set the interface to 16Mbps, for this you will need to either shape/police depending on which direction you are going, and if you are connected to a Service Provider on this port.
