Throttle Traffic using a Policy Map


Recommended Posts

Some devices just don't have the ability to utilize QoS so you need to get smarter than the average bear.

Here is a trick you can use to do the same thing as QoS but just not as pretty. The following example limits the backup traffic to utilize only 30Mb max of the internet link.


ip access-list extended backup_traffic

permit any

permit any

permit any

Permit any

Class-map Backup

match access-group backup_traffic

Policy-map Backup_Policy

class Backup

police 30720000 960000 exceed-action drop

interface Gig 1/0/10

service-policy input Backup_Policy
