Hello,

Hello,

it appears that shaping on the 6509 is limited to only a few interfaces. What are you trying to accomplish, and what interface are you trying to apply the policy to ?

Hello,

Hello,

what you can accomplish on the 6509 with regard to shaping depends on the supervisor and the line cards installed. Post the output of 'show version' as well as your configuration and indicate which interface you want to do the shaping on. That said, most likely you can only accomplish policing...

Here is an example:

policy-map POLICE_OUT
 class class-default
  police cir 256000

interface GigabitEthernet1/0
 service-policy output POLICE_OUT

Hi Georg,

Hi Georg,

As soon as I configere this and look at the results I will see this:

Policy Map Test
  Class class-default
    police cir 186000000 bc 5812500
     conform-action transmit
     exceed-action drop

The exceed-action is not as I like.

Our situation:
Cisco 6509
Supervisor VS-SUP2T-10G (module 5) with VS-F6K-PFC4 and VS-F6K-MSFC5
IOS s2t54-adventerprisek9-mz.SPA.151-2.SY9.bin
Interface Gi5/2
Connection to our offices (IP-VPN / MPLS) bandwith 200Mbps
Our service provider (KPN) will see many drops, we use average < 50Mbps so the bandwith is no problem. Only small bursts wil be dropt by KPN.

On all our offices we configered traffic shaping (shape average) without drops (and resends). We like this also on our datacenter.

Is this possible?

Vincent,

Vincent,

when you configure:

police cir 186000000 bc 5812500 conform-action transmit exceed-action transmit violate-action drop

do you still see the drops ?

Sure, you just need to use a device that supports shaping.  ;)

I recall the old (EoL) FlexWAN line cards used to support shaping.  I don't recall any other line cards, or sups, at least on the Catalyst 6x00 series, supporting shaping.
