Hierarchy Level


Specify the maximum number of inbound flows allowed on EIF mapping to the configured value. This limit is per EIF mapping and is per given instance of time. For example, if eif-flow-limit is configured as n, then only n inbound connections are allowed at a given instance of time, The n+1 and subsequent connections arriving when n connections are alive are dropped . A new inbound connection is allowed only when one of the n connections times out or is closed. This limit is applied for all type of flows.

Starting in Junos OS Release 15.1R3, eif-flow-limit is also supported on the MS-MPC and MS-MIC.
