Applying Layer 2 Policers to Gigabit Ethernet Interfaces

 

To rate-limit traffic by applying a policer to a Gigabit Ethernet interface (or a 10-Gigabit Ethernet interface [xe-fpc/pic/port]), include the layer2-policer statement with the direction, type, and name of the policer:

The direction (input or output) and type (policer or three-color) are combined into one statement and the policer named must be properly configured.

One input or output policer of either type can be configured on the interface.

Examples: Applying Layer 2 Policers to a Gigabit Ethernet Interface

Apply color-blind and color-aware two-rate TCM policers as input and output policers to a Gigabit Ethernet interface:

Apply two-level and color-blind single-rate TCM policers as input and output policers to a Gigabit Ethernet interface:

Apply a color-aware single-rate TCM policer as output policer on a Gigabit Ethernet interface:
