Traffic limiter question


I have a customer connected to a Gbe interface with an inbound limiter configured as shown below.

They are asking what the policing window duration is. Anyone know?

[quote]traffic-policy {
limiter eth1-vif-200-in {
default {
bandwidth 100mbit


they are asking you about burst-size. Default is 15kB. For your limiter I would reccomend something like 768k (6ms).

burst-size(B) = bandwidth (bps) X burst-period (s) / 8

15k = 1G * 0.00012 / 8

Window duration is: 120 us at line rate.

Good explanation is here -


Thanks, great explanation!
