Configure broadcast and multicast bandwidth limiting to limit the amount of ingress broadcast and multicast traffic on a port. The switch drops traffic that violates the bandwidth limit.


Command Parameters

Specifies the bandwidth limit for broadcast and multicast traffic from 1-65535 packets per second.
broadcast {<1-65535> | <50-65000000>}
Rate limit for broadcast. Range depends on hardware platform.
multicast {<1-65535> | <50-65000000>}
Rate limit for multicast. Range depends on hardware platform.
port {slot/port[/sub-port] [-slot/port[/sub-port]] [,...]}

Identifies the slot and port in one of the following formats: a single slot and port (slot/port), a range of slots and ports (slot/port-slot/port), or a series of slots and ports (slot/port,slot/port,slot/port). If the platform supports channelization and the port is channelized, you must also specify the sub-port in the format slot/port/sub-port.


The default is disabled (no rate limit).
