Configuring Types of Actions for Rate-Limit Actions (SRC CLI)


When you configure a rate-limit action or a rate-limit hierarchy, you specify types of actions for conformed traffic, committed traffic, and exceed traffic.

Before you configure the various types of action, configure the rate limit or parent group (for rate-limit hierarchies) that is to include the actions. See

Use the following configuration statements to configure rate-limit actions from the following hierarchy levels:

  • [edit policies group name list name rule name]

  • [edit policies group name list name parent-group name]

To specify types of actions for rate-limit actions:

  • Specify an action for a rate-limit action or a rate-limit hierarchy:


    The following examples show the configuration for a committed action. You can configure the same actions for committed actions, conformed actions, and exceed actions.

    • Filter (drop packet).

    • Forward.

    • (For rate-limit hierarchies only) Forward conditionally.

    • (Rate-limit hierarchies only for committed and conformed actions) Forward unconditionally.

    • (For rate-limit hierarchies only) Forward and exit from the rate-limit hierarchy.

    • Mark. If you select mark, enter the mark values.

      Make sure that masks configured with a rate limit action are the same for different mark actions.

    • Parameter. Before you assign a parameter, you must create a parameter of type packetOperation and commit the parameter configuration.
