Hierarchy Level


Configure a logical interface policer. For PTX series routers running Junos OS Release 18.3R1 or later, you can use this command to configure separate firewall filters for different family address types (IPv4 and IPv6) that share the same interface, and configure the same policer as an action for the filter.

To configure the aggregate policer, configure the firewall policer you want to use as logical-interface-policer. And at the firewall family family-name filter filter-name hierarchy level where you will reference the policer, make the policer an interface-specific firewall filter action.

The sample configuration shows the relationship.


Starting in Junos OS Release 12.2R2, on T Series Core Routers only, you can configure an MPLS LSP policer for a specific LSP to be shared across different protocol family types. You must include the logical-interface-policer statement to do so.
