I'm a network administrator for an ISP. We are a dual homed BGP shop. We have, in general around 250 Mbps of traffic on each link (2 7206-G2 routers). The problem is, when one link goes down the traffic wouldn't rebalance correctly. We'd end up with about 400 and 100. In order to rebalance it we'd need to reboot the router that was missing traffic, and once it was up, reboot the other router. We've actually moved all of our traffic to the G2 cards from the front cards, which may have fixed the issue. We won't know until we have an outage though. The main thing I want to know, is there a BGP command that would effect how traffic is balanced after reestablishing the inter link? Here's my config, minus network statements and changed numbers to protect the innocent. 220.127.116.11 would be the inter link, 18.104.22.168 would be the other ISP router bgp 12345 no synchronization bgp log-neighbor-changes ! network entries neighbor 22.214.171.124 remote-as 12345 neighbor 126.96.36.199 ebgp-multihop 3 neighbor 188.8.131.52 update-source Loopback0 neighbor 184.108.40.206 next-hop-self neighbor 220.127.116.11 soft-reconfiguration inbound neighbor 18.104.22.168 remote-as 4321 neighbor 22.214.171.124 password 7 00031E0C055800031B32 neighbor 126.96.36.199 next-hop-self neighbor 188.8.131.52 soft-reconfiguration inbound neighbor 184.108.40.206 route-map MAP out no auto-summary

If I have either a 2950 or 3560 is there a way to rate limit in interface without using QoS? The senario: Let's say I'm an ISP and I have a customer who pays for a 20 Mbps link. I have their equipment plugged into a 3560. Is there a command in the 3560 such as "rate-limit 20000" to throttle them? I ask because another brand switch that we currently use has a command for this called "port-limit".
