  1. In the paragraph at the end, just wondering where you got the 1024 from for the sustained bits per interval?

    The following commands however should give you the exact same result:

  2. Hello Rene/Laz,
    I have a few questions and I am going to use the below topology as the reference.


    In this topology, there are two internet connections as you see in the picture and HSRP is configured between them. One router is active for one VLAN and another router is active for another VLAN is HSRP. There are two different firewalls for two different purposes. In this scenario, a lot of packet discards are being observed in the Trust zone and Untrust zon

  3. Hello AZM

    Now when you say that you are seeing packet discards in the trust and untrust zone, I assume these drops are occurring on interfaces found on the firewalls? Where specifically is the bandwidth saturation taking place, on the interfaces of the firewalls?

    Assuming that is indeed the case, since there is no marking anywhere in this network, then using source and destination IP addresses for applying a QoS policy sounds like a good idea.

Therefor, I do not see that much drops on the port-channel interfaces on any side. Most of the drops are being noticed at G 0/2 interface on the Layer 2 switch. Besides this, the core switch has multiple inbound interfaces. That is why I am kind of confused where I should put the QoS shaping policy. Because if I put it on the outb
