Configuring a Rule for Sending Packets to the CPU

Configuring a Rule for Sending Packets to the CPU


To reduce the number of packets sent to the CPU and prevent interference between the packets of different types, the switch limits the rate of packets sent to the CPU in different mode, including the rate limiting for protocol packets and rate limiting for all packets on an interface. Rate limiting for protocol packets has a higher priority than rate limiting for all packets on an interface. When both the rate limiting methods are configured, the device uses the minimum value to limit the packet rate.


The default CAR value is recommended.

For BFD packets, this command does not take effect on the CE6875EI.


  1. Run system-view

    The system view is displayed.

  2. Configure a rule for sending packets to the CPU.

    Run cpu-defend policy policy-name

    The attack defense policy view is displayed.

    Configure a rate limit on protocol packets and a rate limit for all packets on an interface in the attack defense policy view.

    • Configure a rate limit for protocol packets.

      The action to be performed on protocol packets sent to the CPU can be car or deny. When you configure the action to be performed on packets of the same protocol, the latest configuration takes effect.

      • Run car packet-type packet-type pps pps-value

        The CAR value for packets sent to the CPU is set and the threshold is set.

      • Run deny packet-type packet-type

        The action taken for the packets sent to the CPU is set to deny.

      By default, the rate of packets sent to the CPU is limited using the rate limit in the default policy. You can run the display cpu-defend configuration command to check the CAR values of packets.

    • Set an interface-based rate limit.

      Run car all-packets pps packets

      The number of packets sent from CPU interfaces to the CPU within a certain period is limited.

      By default, a maximum of 5120 packets can be sent to the CPU of the device per second. However, the CE5810EI and CE5850HI send a maximum of 2000 packets to the CPU per second.


      The car all-packets pps command is required only when the current CAR configuration cannot reduce CPU loads.

  3. Run commit

    The configuration is committed.
