Rate limit on Catalyst 9300

Hi all.

I have a Catalyst 9300 as Distribution Switch, with several SVI configured for gateway of user VLAN. I want to configure rate limit to 1MBps on 1 of the SVI. Is it posible do do this on Cat9300?

Thank you.

you cannot police the SVI. You need to police each individual port. This is an excerpt from the document linked below:


Policy Map on VLANs

The device supports a VLAN QoS feature that allows the user to perform QoS treatment at the VLAN level (classification and QoS actions) using the incoming frame’s VLAN information. In VLAN-based QoS, a service policy is applied to an SVI interface. All physical interfaces belonging to a VLAN policy map then need to be programmed to refer to the VLAN-based policy maps instead of the port-based policy map.

Although the policy map is applied to the VLAN SVI, any policing (rate-limiting) action can only be performed on a per-port basis. You cannot configure the policer to take account of the sum of traffic from a number of physical ports. Each port needs to have a separate policer governing the traffic coming into that port.


Here is a configuration example which would police all ports to 1Mbit:


class-map CLASS_VLAN_10
match vlan 10
policy-map PM_VLAN_10
class CLASS_VLAN_10
police 1000000 conform-action transmit exceed-action drop
interface gigabitethernet 1/0/1

switchport mode access

switchport access vlan 10
service-policy input PM_VLAN_10

Hi Georg.

Thanks for your response.


I plan to configure rate limit on SVI that will be use for wireless user. So, those configurations will applied on interface facing APs. Is that correct?
