Hierarchy Level


Configure a policer to be filter-specific, which means that Junos OS creates only one policer instance regardless of how many times the policer is referenced. If you use a filter-specific policer in multiple terms, both of the following are true:

  • Traffic is policed at the aggregate rate. For example, if you create a policer that has a bandwidth limit of 100 Mbps and use the policer in two terms, the total allowed bandwidth for both terms is 100 Mbps—not 100 Mbps for each term.

  • The implicit counter counts all the packets are that matched by any of the terms. For example, if you reference the same filter-specific policer in term1 and term2, and term1 matches 1000 packets and term2 matches 500 packets, the implicit counter shows 1500 matches for the policer.
