Traffic Shape Cisco 3560

Is it possible to shape outbound traffic on Cisco 3560 (IPBASE)?


Int Gi0/1 on the 3650 connects to VPLS WAN which is policed on Virgin side at 20Mbps...

It's been recommended that we shape traffic on outbound interface, to avoid unnecessary retransmissions if traffic is dropped over this rate.... (We are having problem with slow transfers from this site)

Can I do this on IPBASE code on 3650, can you give me an example that would limit outbound traffic to 20Mbps  ?

Thanks

The end of the above link shows a nested policy that would limit overall speed and also give policies to traffic within the overall limit.

According to the below link, it does appear that IPB should be capable of advanced QoS.

Thanks, if I understand right, traffic can either be Shaped or Policed?  I think Virgin will police (drop) any traffic over 20Mbps, so it needs to be retransmitted...

I heard that if we  shape the traffic outbound first, it could be buffered and we could reduce number of retransmissions ...? Is that right?

Do you have an example that would let me do that for all traffic outgoing on an interface?
