Hi Ronaldo,

The "rate-limit" command on IOS routers is fairly old, maybe you will be able to use it.

You can define an access-list to do rate-limiting to a specific ip address:

Example:

access-list 100 permit ip any host 10.1.1.1

Interface s1/0

rate-limit output access-group 100 150000 3000 3000 conform-action transmit exceed-action drop

This configuration means that you will limit the traffic to host 10.1.1.1 to 150 kbps.

Numbers "3000" are the committed burst and excess-burst values.

In case the traffic traverses a provider cloud, you will need to ask your provider about these values.
