One-Rate Rate-Limit Profiles Overview

E Series routers implement a single-rate rate limiter, which you can configure to provide more efficient service to TCP applications. With the single-rate rate limiter, when the committed rate is exceeded, the rate limiter drops a single packet and then resumes transmission up to a configurable burst window. The single, unacknowledged packet causes TCP to cut its transmission rate in half rather than falling back to its initial window size.

Note: Commands that you issue in Rate Limit Profile Configuration mode do not take effect until you exit from that mode.

The one-rate rate-limit profile attributes are:
