    Configuring Rate-Limit Actions for External Parent Groups (SRC CLI)

    Use the following statement to configure rate-limit profiles for external parent groups:

    policies external-parent-group-folder name external-parent-group name {type type;committed-rate committed-rate;committed-burst committed-burst;peak-rate peak-rate;peak-burst peak-burst;color-aware;}

    To configure rate-limit profiles for external parent groups:

    1. From configuration mode, specify the name of the external parent group for which you want to configure the rate-limit profile. For example, to configure the rate-limit profile for an external parent group called epg1:
      user@host# edit policies external-parent-group-folder external parent group epg1 rate-limit

      Specify the rate-limit options:

      • Specify that the rate-limit is either one rate or two rate. The rate-limit type determines the options that you can configure for a rate-limit action.
        [edit policies external-parent-group-folder external parent group epg1 rate-limit]user@host# set type type
      • (Optional) Configure the target rate for the traffic that the policy covers.
        [edit policies external-parent-group-folder external parent group epg1 rate-limit]user@host# set committed-rate committed-rate
      • (Optional) Configure the amount of bandwidth allocated to burst traffic in bytes.
        [edit policies external-parent-group-folder external parent group epg1 rate-limit]user@host# set committed-burst committed-burst
      • (Optional) For two-rate rate-limit profiles, specify the amount of bandwidth allocated to excess traffic flow over the committed rate.
        [edit policies external-parent-group-folder external parent group epg1 rate-limit]user@host# set peak-rate peak-rate
      • (Optional) For two-rate rate-limit profiles, specify the amount of bandwidth allocated to burst traffic in excess of the peak rate.
        [edit policies external-parent-group-folder external parent group epg1 rate-limit]user@host# set peak-burst peak-burst
      • (Optional) Set the rate-limit to color aware for the rate-limit to process color values set in the TOS byte of the packet header.
        [edit policies external-parent-group-folder external parent group epg1 rate-limit]user@host# set color-aware
    2. (Optional) Verify your configuration.

      [edit policies external-parent-group-folder epg1-folder external-parent-group epg1]
      user@host#show 
      committed-burst 16384;
      committed-rate 0;
      excess-burst 0;
      type one_rate;
