Interface Rate Limit

Interface Rate Limit

Context

When data is sent from a high-speed link to a low-speed link, the bandwidth on the interface of the low-speed link is insufficient. As a result, a large number of packets are discarded. The data traffic rate needs to be limited. To solve the problem, configure the rate limit in the outbound direction on the interface of the high-speed link. The interface then discards the packets whose rate exceeds the rate limit so that traffic is limited in a specified range. You can also configure the rate limit in the inbound direction on the interface of the low-speed link. When the rate of received packets is greater than the rate limit, the interface discards the packets.

You can configure rate limit for all packets on the inbound or outbound interface or packets on the specified source/destination IP address segment.

Procedure

  • Create interface rate limit.
    1. Choose QoS > Interface Rate Limit to open the Interface Rate Limit page. The page shown in Figure 15-9 is displayed.

      Figure 15-9  Interface Rate Limit

    2. Click Create in Interface Rate Limit List.
    3. On the Create Interface Rate Limit page, set parameters. Table 15-3 describes the parameters. The page shown in Figure 15-10 is displayed.

      Figure 15-10  Create Interface Rate Limit

    4. Click OK to save the configurations.

      Table 15-3  Description of parameters for creating interface rate limit

      Item

      Description

      Interface name

      Indicates the name of the interface where rate limit will be configured.

      Rate limiting type

      Indicates the rate limit type:
      • Interface: limits the rate of all packets in the inbound or outbound direction of an interface.

      • IP: limits the rate of packets based on IP addresses.

        • destination: limits the rate of packets on the specified destination IP address segment.
        • source: limits the rate of packets on the specified source IP address segment.

      Direction

      Indicates the direction to which rate limit is applied:
      • Inbound: limits the rate of packets entering the interface.

      • Outbound: limits the rate of packets going out of the interface.

      Start source IP

      Indicates the first IP address of the source IP address segment. This parameter is available only when IP is source.

      End source IP

      Indicates the last IP address of the source IP address segment. This parameter is available only when IP is source.

      Start destination IP

      Indicates the first IP address of the destination IP address segment. This parameter is available only when IP is destination.

      End destination IP

      Indicates the last IP address of the destination IP address segment. This parameter is available only when IP is destination.

      Type

      Indicates the type of bandwidth used by packets on the source/destination IP address segment:
      • Shared: Specified source/destination IP address segment shares the available bandwidth.

      • Exclusive: Each IP address of the specified source/destination IP address segment exclusively use the available bandwidth.

      This parameter is available only when Rate limiting type is IP.

      CIR (kbit/s)

      Specifies the committed information rate, which is the guaranteed average transmission rate, in kbit/s.

      Advanced

      Indicates other parameters:
      • PIR (kbit/s): specifies the peak information rate, which is the maximum transmission rate, in kbit/s.

      • CBS (byte): specifies the committed burst size (CBS), which is the average volume of burst traffic that can pass through an interface, in Bytes.

      • PBS (byte): specifies the peak burst size (PBS), which is the maximum volume of burst traffic that can pass through an interface, in Bytes.

      The default settings are as follows:
      • If the PIR is not set or the PIR equals the CIR, the CBS is 188 times the CIR and the PBS is 313 times the CIR.

      • If the PIR is set and is different from the CIR, the CBS is 125 times the CIR and the PBS is 125 times the PIR.

      LAN interfaces do not support this parameter.

  • Modify interface rate limit.
    1. Choose QoS > Interface Rate Limit to open the Interface Rate Limit page. The page shown in Figure 15-9 is displayed.
    2. In Interface Rate Limit List, select an interface and click in the Operation column. The page shown in Figure 15-11 is displayed.

      Figure 15-11  Modify Interface Rate Limit

    3. On the Modify Interface Rate Limit page, modify parameters, as shown in Table 15-3. The interface name cannot be modified.
    4. Click OK to save the configurations.
  • Delete interface rate limit.
    1. Choose QoS > Interface Rate Limit to open the Interface Rate Limit page. The page shown in Figure 15-9 is displayed.
    2. In Interface Rate Limit List, select a traffic policy and click Delete.
    3. Click OK in the displayed dialog box.
