To control the rate of all outgoing traffic on an interface, configure egress interface-based rate limiting. When the transmit rate of packets exceeds the configured rate limit, the excess packets will be discarded.

set interface gigabit-ethernet <interface-name> rate-limiting egress kilobits <value>

set interface gigabit-ethernet <interface-name> rate-limiting egress ratio <value>

set interface gigabit-ethernet <interface-name> rate-limiting egress burst <burst-size>

NOTE:

  • In the same direction of the same interface, kilobits and ratio cannot be configured simultaneously.
  • When burst size is not configured, PICOS uses a burst size adapted according to the configured rate limiting value configured by the set interface gigabit-ethernet <interface-name> rate-limiting egresskilobits <value> or set interface gigabit-ethernet <interface-name> rate-limiting egressratio <value> command.
