How do I manage excess bandwidth?
Managing Excess Bandwidth:
- On MPC and MIC interfaces, the guaranteed rate and the shaping rate share the value specified for the burst size. If the guaranteed rate has a burst size specified, the shaping rate is used; if the shaping rate has a burst size specified, it is used for the guaranteed rate.
- Juniper Networks recommends that you configure either a percentage or a proportion of the excess bandwidth for all schedulers with the same parent in the hierarchy. For example, if you configure interface 1.1 with 20 percent of the excess bandwidth, configure interface 1.2 with 80 percent of the excess bandwidth.
