RE: Bandwidth Control Question
Thanks. I not very familiar with the integrated DSU T3/E3 command set - still used to the good ol HSSI ports. I'll agree, this sounds like a better solution if you are using one of the integrated cards. Yes - you are correct, in my solution both sides should always use a traffic-shape or other shaping QoS command. The rate limit is a final "police" in case the customer does try to send more than you would like them to. Again, agreed, obviously if you can control the port speed (above - DSU bandwidth), that's a better solution. -- Daniel Ellis, CTO, PenTeleData (610)826-9293 "The only way to predict the future is to invent it." --Alan Kay -----Original Message----- From: Michel Py [mailto:[email protected]] Sent: Friday, December 19, 2003 10:58 AM To: Bryan Heitman; [email protected] Subject: RE: Bandwidth Control Question > Bryan Heitman > Why not simply use configuration option Cisco gives > you to set your DS3 to 6 meg dsu bandwidth X That's what I do, works fine. > Dan, your suggestion will unncessarily tax his equipment. Not only that, but the rate-limiting on the input interface will likely force the customer to do some QOS at their end too; the discrepancy between what the customer's router thinks the bandwidth is and what it really is will cause packet loss. I like the solution of the sending interface to queue the egress traffic at whatever speed is available better. Michel.
