i have many sites connected to our main office router....one of our remote office has got 64K link which is ocnnecting to out main office.....while going htrough our main office router i saw a config
rate-limit input 64000 2000 3000 conform-action transmit exceed-action drop
rate-limit output 64000 2000 3000 conform-action transmit exceed-action drop
now i understand that the default on cisco router is 2Mbps....but the question is cant we put bandwidth 64....on that perticular interface why we have used this rate limit command.....ok if we use this command the forst thing is pretty simple 64000 what does the second and third thing mean 2000 and 3000......and how we calcuate it......and why two comand one for input and one for out put.....thanks in advance
As for your specific application and the parameters you are working with now, I second Martin's point. If it is already a 64k link, it will "police" itself to 64k. Traffic shaping might be a more useful tool in your case as it could help as it could smooth the traffic a bit using a queue where rate-limiting will not. Also, I have had good luck using stac compression on links of that speed. You enable it on both ends with the interface command: compress stac. It really does help a lot.
