Traffic-Shape Rate command

I have a 20MB static line to the internet and have to provide the traffic shaping to avoind packet loss.  I am struggling with the command needed on the GB interface.

Here is what I have:
Interface GB0/0
 traffic-shape rate 20000000 500000 500000 1000

The command I entered however was simply
traffic-shape rate 20000000 and the rest was added automatically.  Is the above line proper for a 20MB internet connection.

Is GB0/0 Connected to your ISP?  Does this interface have an IP Address assigned or is the IP Address on a sub-interface?

If so then this is configured correctly.  The remaining settings are set buy the IOS to allow you to maintain maximum throughput.

The format is:  traffic-shape rate bit-rate [burst-size [excess-burst-size]] [buffer-limit]

Bit-rate:
Bit rate that traffic is shaped to, in bits per second. This is the access bit rate that you contract with your service provider, or the service levels you intend to maintain. Bit rates can be in the range of 8000 to 100000000 bps.

burst-size:
(Optional) Sustained number of bits that can be sent per interval. On Frame Relay interfaces, this is the Committed Burst size contracted with your service provider. Valid entries are numbers in the range of 0 to 100000000.

excess-burst-size:
(Optional) Maximum number of bits that can exceed the burst size in the first interval in a congestion event. On Frame Relay interfaces, this is the Excess Burst size contracted with your service provider. Valid entries are numbers in the range of 0 to 100000000. The default is equal to the burst-size argument.

buffer-limit:
(Optional) Maximum buffer limit in bps. Valid entries are numbers in the range of 0 to 4096.

GB0/0 is connected to our ISP and the address is assigned to the physical interface.  Thanks for the info.
