Hi Guys,

Is it possible to set a maximum bandwidth per port on a Cisco 2950 catalyst switch?

I so what is the console command.

Thanks in advance.

Here is another link for you.

This will allow you to use the command srr-queue which can effectively limit the bandwidth to what you specify. The article seems pretty good and right in line with what you are trying to do.

**
Just as a note, In the past I have done all my speed limiting and bandwidth control through a Cisco Router using Access-Lists and the rate-limit command. If you have a Cisco router available this may also be an option for you.

Best of luck,

The

#bandwith command           does not limit the speed of the port. it only sets what speed it is displayed at..

this can be usefull for if you have a 5mb WAN link that you want to monitor, but the swich port connects at 100mb/s. in monitering software this would show as 5% uterlisation. by issusing a bandwith command, you can tell the switch to report uterlisation based on the port being at 100% when there is 5mb/s of traffic passing through it. but if you wnt you can still send 100mb/s across it.

The ssr-queue and rate limitting commands do truly limit the speed/bandwith
