Slow Network to remote location.

Anyone has any idea on what <Available Bandwidth 3 kilobits/sec> on the output below means.

Re: Slow Network to remote location.

Yup. That's easy.

When you create a policy-map (for CBWFQ or LLQ queueing) all of the reservations (set with bandwidth XX and priority XX commands) are substracted from your interface speed. The remaining value is displayed.

Just check the interface configuration. There you will surely have "max-reserved-bandwidth 100" command and "service-policy output XXX" command (XXX is the name of your policy-map).

It's nothing to worry about, just to give you information that you are manually deciding which packets get what bandwidth, and not the router. Router is in control of only 3kbps... which is some really small reserve it keeps for operational reasons.

Hope this helps.

Re: Slow Network to remote location.


Bandwidth in kbps or percentage configured for this class.

Id you would check it, here is each and every word answer.
