QoS Settings to Match SP Policer

Hi,

My SP has an ingress policer specifying 100mbps CIR and 256kbps Bc.

When I try to configure a shaper to match this requirement, I cannot specify a Bc value smaller than 400000, as the Tc cannot be less than 4ms. For example,

----------------------------------------------------------------------

OFFICE-01(config-pmap-c)#policy-map policy-map QoS-Outbound-100M

 OFFICE-01(config-pmap-c)#class class-default

  OFFICE-01(config-pmap-c)#shaper average 100000000 265000

Shaping Interval is 3 milliseconds. Intervals below 4 milliseconds rejected.

---------------------------------------------------

If I use the  minimum Bc value of 400000bps, traffic might be dropped by the SP. Any workaround? The major application in the network is http.

Thanks.

 

Larry

Bc isn't a per second value, it's a quantity of bits or bytes.

Also, Bc might be given in bytes, so double check whether your ISP's value is 256 KBytes or Kbits.

Hello Larry , I tried

Hello Larry ,

 

I tried provided policer configuration in lab device : 

 

CIR = 100000000 bps

Bc = 256000 bps = 32000bytes

when i tried this configuration device corrected confirm burst to 50000 bytes :

 

#Conform burst size increased to 50000

 

which also leads to Tc = 50000 * 8 / 100000000 = 4ms 

 

So I am wondering how did provider achieved such low Bc . Are you sure it is not 256000 bytes , as confirm burst is configured in bytes .

 

Hope this helps .

Hi Larry,In shaper, Tc can

Hi Larry,

In shaper, Tc can not be configured for value lesser than 4ms. Better you ask your SP to modify the ingress service-policy. (that can easily be done). Also check with SP, what formula they are using to calculate Bc. They are setting Bc very low and with HTTP, we expect bursty traffic and need some larger Bc value.

Thanks for the comment.I got

Thanks for the comment.

I got back from my SP that they provide the wrong number. 256kbps  is the Be value, not the Bc.

 

Best regards.

Ah, well your provider should be able to also provide Bc and both may be in bytes.  Knowing both would allow you to configure your shaper to match their policer.
