Release Information

Statement introduced before JUNOS Release 7.4.


Specify the bucket threshold, which controls the burstiness of the leaky bucket mechanism. The larger the value, the more bursty the traffic, which means that over a very short amount of time, the interface can receive or transmit close to line rate, but the average over a longer time is at the configured bucket rate.


bytes—Maximum size, in bytes, for traffic bursts. For ease of entry, you can enter number either as a complete decimal number or as a decimal number followed by the abbreviation k (1000). For example, the entry threshold 2k corresponds to a threshold of 2000 bytes.

Range: 0 through 65,535 bytes

Required Privilege Level

interface—To view this statement in the configuration.

interface-control—To add this statement to the configuration.
