    Very Nice Article. Appreciate it!



    how about hierarchical tocken bucket (HTB)? how many bucket that we use in HTB, and how the policier take the token from the bucket



    Hi Rene,
    Nice explanation. I have one query though.
    With the single rate tri colour policing, if we don’t mention the bc and be values in the cli command, then they both are same. If we have a single burst which is exceeding bc value, then what will happen? Since be is also same as bc will the packet be dropped ( considering that this has violated ) or will the packet pass through if the number of tokens in bc+be is more than the burst arriving?

    Hi SP,

    When you use single rate three colour policing and don’t specify the bc/be values then you will have two buckets that have the same size. When there are not enough tokens in the bc bucket, it will be empty and we will get some extra tokens from the be bucket…you are now exceeding.

    If you send a burst and there are not enough tokens in the bc+be buckets combined, that’s when you are violating and your packet will be dropped.

    Hi Rene,

    this article and your website in general is awesome! Just one thing, am I missing something or there is no article with configuration of this stuff? You mentioned “I will explain to you how to configure it on a Cisco router.”, but I can’t find it?

    Hi Franjo,

    Glad to hear you like it! It seems I never did create the configuration tutorial for policing…I’ll create it tomorrow or monday :)
