Setting the Committed Action for a Rate-Limit Profile

You can use the committed-action command to set the committed action for a rate-limit profile. Packets are colored green. For IP and IPv6 rate-limit profiles, mark the packet by setting the ToS byte (IP) or traffic class field (IPv6) to the specified 8-bit value, and transmit the packet. The mark value is masked with the default 255 unless it is overridden by the mask-val command to specify a different mask; not supported on hierarchical rate limits. For MPLS rate-limit profiles, set the EXP bits of MPLS packets to the specified value in the range 0–7, and transmit the packet. The mark EXP value is masked with the default 7 unless you use the exp-mask command to specify a different mask; not supported on hierarchical rate limits. The no version restores the default value, transmit

Note: If a rate-limit rule and a mark or mark-exp rule have the same classifier, the marking set by a rate-limit rule takes precedence when packets are processed by that classifier. The rate-limit rule marking overwrites any marking set by the mark rule (to the ToS byte) or by the mark-exp rule (to the EXP bits). These actions do not apply to hierarchical rate limits.

To configure the committed action, enter Rate Limit Profile Configuration mode.
