    no protocol protocolValue rate

    Release Information

    Command introduced in JunosE Release 8.1.0.


    Sets the maximum rate for the specified protocol. The rate limit applies to all packets of the protocol for interfaces belonging to the DoS protection group. A particular protocol can be up to the sum of the four rates configured, depending on the DoS group attached to an interface. Use a maximum rate of 0 for protocols that are not used. The actual rate never exceeds the maximum rate, but can be less than the configured maximum rate due to the weighting of the protocols within a DoS protection group and the use of multiple DoS protection groups. The no version sets the rate to the value of the associated preconfigured protocol.


    • protocolValue—Name of the protocol. For details about the values that are displayed for this attribute in the CLI interface, see the Protocol Mapping section in Understanding DoS Protection.
    • rateValue—Packets per second per line card, in the range 64–65335.
