Applying a Meter to Ingress or Egress Traffic

You can apply a meter to ingress traffic using an ACL (Access Control List) on SummitStack and Summit family switches. You can apply a meter to egress traffic using an ACL on Summit X770 series switches.

Use rules within the ACL to identify the ingress traffic to which you want to apply the meter. Apply the meter by specifying the meter name with the meter metername action modifier. For information on completing the ACL configuration, see Configuring an ACL-Based Traffic Group.
