rate-limit bits_per_second {input|output} [latency milliseconds] [buffer kilobytes]

Description

Restricts data rates on the interface to the bits per second value specified

Parameters

bits_per_second - Non-negative integer which represents how much data an interface can push
input - Applies the rate-limiting policy to packets received on this interface only
output - Applies the rate-limiting policy to packets sent on this interface only
latency milliseconds - Highest allowed latency value on the interface (affects buffer size and packet drop rates)
buffer bytes - Highest allowed buffer value on the interface (affects latency and packet drop rates)

Examples

rate-limit 500000 input latency 50 buffer 50000 - Limits device input to 500Kbps with a maximum latency of 50ms and a maximum buffer of 50Kb
rate-limit 400000 output latency 40 buffer 40000 - Limits device output to 400Kbps with a maximum latency of 40ms and a maximum buffer of 50Kb
