Just wanted to confirm if I can use shaping to restrict bandwidth for incoming traffic with "service policy in" ? As far as I know, with GTS bandwidth restriction is possible only for outbound traffic, and i'll have to use policing (CAR) to do inbound bandwidth limitation.. right ?
With my scenario, i'm trying to restrict EoIP traffic for guest users going to internet through a POP over WAN.. scenario is like this
LOC A - WLC - ROUTERA - P2P - ROUTER B - Anchor - Internet
which is the best point to apply traffic shaping in this scenario, to restrict both incoming and outgoing traffic, so that my WAN P2P link allows only 1.5 Mbps of traffic through it (both directions)
I'm basically trying to restrict guest traffic through EoIP, across WAN. browsing traffic is now open, and traverses across the WAN, over IP 97.. I'm trying to cap this traffic to 1.5 Mbps , for both outbound and inbound..
So, I cannot use a Class based shaper for restrictig inbound traffic right ?
we didnt want to do outbound shaping, because the routers already have too many classes, and the customer doesnt want to add one more class for GUEST traffic.. Would a normal GTS work here ?
"So, I cannot use a Class based shaper for restrictig inbound traffic right ? "
Correct, but you can use a class based policer. Again, keep in mind, a downstream policer will not insure the upstream bandwidth is capped. You only fully control bandwidth downsteam of the policer (or shaper).

Not 100% sure, but I thought GTS would shape all traffic, and you only want to cap some traffic? Also, there's no policy on the interface now? (I.e. not sure GTS is supported with something like CBWFQ.)
We are pleased to announce availability of Beta software for 16.6.3. 16.6.3 will be the second rebuild on the 16.6 release train targeted towards Catalyst 9500/9400/9300/3850/3650 switching platforms. We are looking for early feedback from custome...
