Rate-limit on a Cisco 29xx switch
Posted on 2001-07-24
Ok here's my question. I know I can do rate-limiting using a Cisco router on a per port basis, however I want to do it very close to the user. I want to rate-limit on a per port basis on the switch. For costs I'm using 29xx switches in various locations. It has to be flexible because the clients are assigned IP's with DHCP. Has anyone done this on a campus network or another LAN? I have looked at the policy-map solution but from what I'm seeing, the police command is not active on a switch. And of course the rate-limit command is only availble on the routers.
