Hierarchy Level

Release Information

Statement introduced in Junos OS Release 11.1.


Configure the maximum achievable rate. Packets that exceed the committed information rate (CIR) but are below the peak information rate (PIR) are marked with medium-high packet loss priority (yellow). Packets that exceed the PIR are marked with high packet loss priority (red). You can configure a discard action for packets that exceed the PIR.


When you include the peak-information-rate statement in the configuration, you must also include the committed-information-rate and peak-burst-size statements at the same hierarchy level.
