Clamping down bandwidth


I am trying to set up a dummy site on our Head Office LAN across the CAT5 infrastructure. This is to mimic one of our remote sites for a new business application trial on bandwidth. I have 2 routers set up through their ATM ports and wish to clamp the WAN interface to the ADSL speeds of 1MB and 256. Below is the result of a show version, can anyone advise any commands to complete this task?

Re: Clamping down bandwidth


you can use shaping to achieve your goal.

policy-map Shape256

class class-default

shape average 256000

interface Ethernet0

service-policy output Shape256

This will limit your outgoing traffic to 256 kbps. The detailed description of Shaping can f.e. be found in "Configuring Class-Based Shaping"

Hope this helps! Please rate all posts.

Re: Clamping down bandwidth


I have set this script and it has accepted all commands. The only issue is when I complete a show run it does not display the service-policy on the ethernet0 interface. Does these might it did not accept the command?
