I have a Cisco 2821 with ios Version 12.4(21). On that router I have a WAN link that is 550mbit dual.
The interface is 1000FD so i need to shape my output traffic to max 550mbit - otherwise my ISP policing is dropping the traffic.
I've looked at this document http://www.cisco.com/en/US/docs/ios/12_0/qos/configuration/guide/qcgts.html and i'm trying to use this interface command:
But the router wont accept rate value 550000000 that should be 550mbit in bits/s
Is it not possible to shape the traffic to 550mbit on the 2821 router?
Solved! Go to Solution.
You can try using class based shaping :
shape average percent 55
service-policy out WAN
Is the percent of the bandwidth command ( in your case also the speed of the interface ).
You can verify it with
show int x/x | i BW
description Esbjerg-1 WAN
ip address 172.20.1.1 255.255.255.0
ip route-cache flow
service-policy output WAN-SHAPE
My Bandwidth is actually set to 550mbit - its the link speed that is set to 1000mbit. So with this shapeing, in need to set that bandwidth to 1000 as well as the speed right?
