input-shaping-rate (Logical Interface)


Hierarchy Level


For Gigabit Ethernet IQ2, Enhanced Queuing DPC, MIC, and MPC interfaces, configure input traffic shaping by specifying the amount of bandwidth to be allocated to the logical interface. You can configure hierarchical shaping, meaning you can apply an input shaping rate to both the physical interface and the logical interface.


If you do not include this statement, logical interfaces share a default scheduler. This scheduler has a committed information rate (CIR) that equals 0. (The CIR is the guaranteed rate.) The default scheduler has a peak information rate (PIR) that equals the physical interface shaping rate.


percent percentage

Shaping rate as a percentage of the available interface bandwidth.

  • Range: 0 through 100 percent


Peak rate, in bits per second (bps). You can specify a value in bits per second either as a complete decimal number or as a decimal number followed by the abbreviation k (1000), m (1,000,000), or g (1,000,000,000).

  • Range: 1000 through 6,400,000,000,000 bps


    Through Junos OS Release 13.3, the upper limit is 160,000,000,000 bps. Beginning with Junos OS Release 14.1, the upper limit is 6,400,000,000,000 bps.
