Add the configured number of bytes to the length of a packet entering the interface or leaving the interface. The policer overhead adjustment at per IFL or direction granularity is in the range of -16 bytes to +16 bytes.


If you configure the policer-overhead adjustment statement without the ingress or egress option and only with values in the supported range, it is considered for both ingress and egress.

For example: set interfaces xe-1/0/1 policer-overhead <value>
