Policing vs. Maximum Bandwidth



  • Hello.

    Please give me a hint on those two options for traffic shaping.
    While I think I understood the advantage of Ingress policing, I do not understand
    while I should use “maximum bandwidth” then.

    Thanks.



  • As far as I understood:

    • maximum bandwidth will simply cut of the traffic dropping sessions in the process. That will cause retransmissions .
    • policying will converge traffic to use-up only the allowed ammount, costing more cpu power in the process.
