Hierarchy Level


By default, a policer operates in term-specific mode, which means that for a given firewall filterthe Junos OS creates a separate policer instance for every filter term that references the policer. You can, however, use a common policer instance for all terms within the same firewall filter by setting the filter-specific option in the policer. In addition, for IPv4 firewall filters with multiple terms that reference the same policer, filter-specific mode counts and monitors the activity of the policer at the firewall filter level.


Both filter-specific and term-specific apply to prefix-specific policer sets.
