Limit bandwidth on a Cisco 7206 router

Hello everyone, could anyone point me to a link that describes how I can go about setting a bandwidth on the router. Basically, I will have a 1GigE from a vendor and I will like to limit the Internet traffic to say 80Mbps only. I can't seem to find this information on the Cisco web site, but if anyone knows where I can go, could you please send me the link or perhaps explain how I can go about configuring the router.

Thanks.

hi,

You can do CAR - Committed Access Rate:

interface fastethernet0/0

ip address

rate-limit input 80000000 15000000 15000000 conform-action transmit exceed-action drop

rate-limit output 80000000 15000000 15000000 conform-action transmit exceed-action drop

HTH, please do rate all helpful posts,

Beside CAR, you may want to look at traffic-shaping. Being less abrupt than CAT in cutting excess traffic, it lets TCP recover much better and in general I would recommend if you router can handle that.

Hope this helps, please rate post if it does!
