Command:  

traffic-shape rate


Mode:

Router(config-if)#


Syntax:

traffic-shape rate bit-rate [ burst-size [ excess-burst-size ][ buffer-limit ]

 

no traffic-shape rate


Syntax Description:

bit-rate

Bit rate that traffic is shaped to, in bits per second. This is the access bit rate that you contract with your service provider, or the service levels you intend to maintain. Bit rates can be in the range of 8,000 to 100,000,000 bps.

burst-size

(Optional) Sustained number of bits that can be sent per interval. On Frame Relay interfaces, this is the Committed Burst size contracted with your service provider. Valid entries are numbers in the range of 0 to 100,000,000.

excess-burst-size

(Optional) Maximum number of bits that can exceed the burst size in the first interval in a congestion event. On Frame Relay interfaces, this is the Excess Burst size contracted with your service provider. Valid entries are numbers in the range of 0 to 100,000,000. The default is equal to the burst-sizeargument.

buffer-limit

(Optional) Maximum buffer limit in bps. Valid entries are numbers in the range of 0 to 4,096.

Command Description:

To enable traffic shaping for outbound traffic on an interface, use the traffic-shape ratecommand in interface configuration mode. To disable traffic shaping on the interface, use the noform of this command.


Example:

The following example enables traffic shaping on serial interface 0 using the bandwidth required by the service provider:

interface serial 0

 traffic-shape rate 128000 16000 8000
