How can I monitor/verify/test that the inbound traffic don`t exeed 2 Mb. Is there a command in the 6506 that can be used to check ?

I'm not sure what all that is but I use PRTG Traffic Grapher (Free Edition) (http://www.paessler.com/prtg) to monitor my bandwidth. It works really well with SMTP.

Regards.

I hoped that I wouldn`t have to use third party software. I was looking for a built-in function in the IOS , if there exist such a function......

You can do a "show int vlan1" and look at the 5 minute busy rates.

However for a history you need a 3rd party product such ash PRTG.  I personally use MRTG (http://oss.oetiker.ch/mrtg/).  MRTG can run on many OS's, PRTG will only run on Windows.

Even with these I am not sure you will see what you want.  IIRC the police/policy is per connection, not interface.  So if you had 10 connections each getting 2Mbps, that would be 20 Mbps and that is what the show interface an any SNMP based tool (PRTG/MRTG) will show as they show what is going over the Interface, not a specific connection.

To make sure your policy is taking affect you need to do something over that interface and make sure it does not get more than 2 Mbps a second.  For an example FTP a file.

If you are trying to limit Internet traffic using this, then going to someplace like http://www.speedtest.net/ and doing a speed test to verify that you are getting limited.
