VPLS Filters and Policers Overview


This feature permits users to configure both firewall filters and policers for virtual private LAN service (VPLS). Firewall filters enable you to filter packets based on their components and perform an action on packets that match the filter. Policers enable you to limit the amount of traffic that passes into or out of an interface.

This feature can be enabled by configuring VPLS filters, policers, and accounting through various CLI commands. VPLS filters and policers act on a Layer 2 frame that includes the media access control (MAC) header (after any VLAN rewrite or other rules are applied), but that does not include the cyclical redundancy check (CRC) field.


You can apply VPLS filters and policers on the PE routers only to customer-facing (PE-CE) interfaces.
