bytes (Dynamic Traffic Shaping)


Hierarchy Level


Configure the number of overhead bytes.


bytes—Byte adjustment value for the cell-mode or frame-mode shaping options. This can be the predefined variable $junos-cos-byte-adjust, which is the variable for byte adjustment that is replaced with a value obtained from the RADIUS server when a subscriber authenticates over the interface to which the dynamic profile is attached.

Best Practice:

We recommend using the cell-mode cell-mode-bytes cell-mode-bytes option or the frame-mode frame-mode-bytes frame-mode-bytes option rather than the bytes option.
