Packets that exceed the committed information rate (CIR) but are below the peak information rate (PIR) are marked with medium-high packet loss priority (yellow). Packets that exceed the PIR are marked with high packet loss priority (red). You can configure a discard action for packets that exceed the PIR.


When you include the peak-information-rate statement in the configuration, you must also include the committed-information-rate and peak-burst-size statements at the same hierarchy level.
