We have been using the 'shape average' command for our traffic shaping on our output side for the bandwidth we sell to customers. It seems that this might not be the best way to traffic shape a rate (like 15meg) to a customer.
After doing much research, I have changed the 'shape average' to 'bandwidth'. After doing so, the traffic shot right up to the max limit on the output side.
My question is, what is the best way from a SP to shape outbound traffic to a customer? Here is what we had before:
We do shape average too, but ive noticed two customers who have never been able to hit their top bandwidth mark for some reason. By changing this policy to use just 'bandwidth' they have pegged quite a few times now.
Im just curious what this bandwidth command does, and what the best way to do this would be. And why the shape 'average' seems to not give them the bandwidth they are supposed to be getting.
Thanks for the doc, that definately explains things a lot better than the previos doc I had.
Taking a look at the traffic patterns of the customer yesterday he had hit his max limit for about 15 minutes yesterday and kept it pegged since using the bandwidth command and did not go over the limit.
Im more curious now as to when you would want to use the 'shape average' or 'bandwidth' command. If there is precedent over one or the other in different situations. Just seems strange to have two commands that seem to do the same thing.
