Bandwidth's unit for interface and policy-map

The unit for bandwidth is kilobits/sec

When I checked that for policy-map it is in kilobits/sec, but when I checked the serial interface it was not,,,any hint about this ?

Router(config-pmap-c)#bandwidth ?

<8-2000000> Kilo Bits per second

percent % of Available Bandwidth

Router(config-pmap-c)#exit

Router(config-pmap)#exit

Router(config)#

Router(config)#interface serial 0/0

Router(config-if)#bandwidth ?

<1-10000000> Bandwidth in kilobits

Re: Bandwidth's unit for interface and policy-map

Hi,

The two bandwidth values you are looking at serve slightly different functions. The bandwidth statement used in a policy-map enables CBWFQ and is specified in kbps. The bandwidth statement configured under the interface indicates the bandwidth associated with that interface for the purpose of QoS, OSPF costs etc. This second bandwidth is also in units of kbps, even though it says 'kilobits'.

Hope that helps - pls rate posts that help.

Regards,

Paresh
