Release Information

Statement introduced in JUNOS Release 10.1.


For Trio DPC and MPC/MIC interfaces only, configure a shaping rate and optional burst size for high-priority excess traffic. This can help to make sure higher priority services do not starve lower priority services.


If you do not include this statement, the default shaping rate for this priority is determined by the shaping-rate statement in the traffic control profile.


rate—Peak rate, in bits per second (bps). You can specify a value in bits per second either as a complete decimal number or as a decimal number followed by the abbreviation k (1000), m (1,000,000), or g (1,000,000,000).

Range: 1000 through 160,000,000,000
Default: None

burst-size bytes—Maximum burst size, in bytes.

Range: 0 through 1,000,000,000

Usage Guidelines

See Per-Priority Shaping on the Trio MPCs/MICs Overview. See also Oversubscribing Interface Bandwidth and Configuring Traffic Control Profiles for Shared Scheduling and Shaping.
