I'd like to know if there is a simple way to configure some form of egress bandwidth on a single Cisco 4500 gigabit port. I have one port that I would like to limit the egress traffic to 90 Mbps. I really don't want to assign a separate VLAN with QoS to it which is over kill. Thanks!

See if you have the srr-queue bandwidth option under your interface.

No I don't. That only applys to the smaller Catalyst switches.

What firmware is the 4500 running?  Per the below link, you need at least 12.2(25)FX

I am running version 12.2(18)EW. Any thoughts on a different method of achieving the same goal? Thanks!

Actually, I don't think the 4500 support switch round robin at all, so the command I suggested will not be available. The only option I see for the 4500 is what you stated you don't want, and that is QOS.

Basically, you will just need to create a policy to shape the traffic to 90Mb and apply the policy output on the interface you want.
