Traffic policing, traffic shaping, and interface-based rate limiting limit the traffic by monitoring the rate limit to improve network resource use efficiency and provide better services.

If the transmit rate is larger than the receive rate or the rate of an interface on a downstream device is lower than the rate of an interface on an upstream device, traffic congestion may occur. A network will be congested if traffic sent by users is not limited. To make use of limited network resources and provide better user services, limit the user traffic.

Traffic policing, traffic shaping, and interface-based rate limiting limit traffic and resources used by the traffic by monitoring the traffic rate.

Traffic Policing

Traffic policing discards excess traffic to limit the traffic within a specified range and to protect network resources as well as carriers' interests.

Traffic Shaping

Traffic shaping adjusts the traffic rate to make irregular traffic transmitted at an even rate, preventing traffic congestion on the downstream device.

Interface-based Rate Limiting

Interface-based rate limiting limits the rate of all packets sent or received on an interface. When the device needs to limit the rate of all traffic on an interface without differentiating the packet type, interface-based rate limiting simplifies the configuration.
