  1. Abhishek,

    1. The answer this depends on whether we are talking about two color or three color. If you are talking two color with 128K or less being within policy, and the provider is allowing excess traffic but remarking it as DSCP 0, then yes, you have the ability to transmit up to whatever your physical link bandwidth would be. Of course, who knows what would happen to exceeding traffic later within the provider’s network–it might get dropped later if there is congestion elsewhere. This leads in to your question #2

    2. The purpose of remarking exceeding tra

  2. Hello Hussein

    The police CIR is set to 128000, the BC is set to 4000 and the BE is set to 4000.

    So, any packets that are within the 128000 CIR limit plus the 4000 BC limit are conforming. These will be transmitted and their DSCP values will be unchanged.

    Any packets arriving above the 128000 + 4000 limit and within

This provides a slightly different set of commands and syntax for QoS. In the IOS XR 4.0.0 the command police rate is used to police data plane traffic. This is also the reason why the syntax ofpolice rate 10 mbps did not work in the IOS version th

  4. Good Day ALL,
    How can an access-list be attached to a policing policy ? An example of my configuration is listed below. Not sure if I would get the desired results. If I have a 200meg link , but only want to use a maximum of 50mbps for wireless users from a specific network. Would I use the 50mbps for the cir or the 200mbps for the cir ? Any guidance is greatly appreciated.
