Cisco rate limiting by protocol
Posted on 2006-05-12
Hello, is there a way to limit bandwidth usage by protocol? We have a remote office with roughly 70 users. The remote office is connected to our corporate headquarters via a T1. The remote office's web traffic traverses the T1 then uses an Internet link at HQ. Lately the T1 circuit has been getting totally saturated. I connected a sniffer and noticed that the majority of traffic coming across the T1 is web based. Is there a way I can configure rate limiting or something else on the remote office router to limit the amount of HTTP traffic that can traverse the T1 at a given time? I know there is a way to rate limit total bandwidth but I'm hoping there is a way to be protocol specific. The remote router is a Cisco 2610 running 12.2(15)T17. I’d like to limit HTTP traffic to no more than 1 meg.
Thanks for the assistance!
