Hierarchy Level


Reduces the possibility that policers configured on the router might drop packets. For some Juniper Networks routers, policers can mark packets as out-of-specification in accordance with TCP. By default, these policers begin to randomly drop packets when the current credit exceeds the credit limit. In the context of TCP, this random drop mechanism helps to smooth the flow of traffic. The policer-drop-probability-low statement causes the policers to operate as strict rate limiters and to ignore the standard TCP behavior.

The policer-drop-probability-low statement is applicable to the following routing platforms:

  • M7i

  • M10i

  • M120

  • M320

  • MX Series
