Bandwidth limit on ERS 8300


I want to do a bandwidth limiting on ers 8300 core switch.Kindly help me with the commands.


RE: Bandwidth limit on ERS 8300

There are two ways to limit traffic.

You can either set multicast/broadcast limits under the ethernet (port) settings. This will drop these types of traffic once the limit is reached. It is more of a security feature to prevent loops taking down the network.

config ethernet <slot/port> bcast-mcast-rate-limit <percent allowed> enable

If you want to limit the total bandwidth a port has coming into the network you will need to look at the QoS shaper settings. This allows you to set the bandwidth allowed on a port

config ethernet <ports> qos shaper enable|disable rate <shaper-rate> burst-size <burst-size> <ports> identifies the slot and port (slot/port)

Before you try either you should download the guides from the Avaya site to fully understand what they do
