period <number>

The enforcement period, in milliseconds.

This attribute determines how often the QoS scheduler checks for packets that are waiting to be sent. With a small enforcement period, the QoS scheduler checks more often — and will therefore send traffic in smaller blocks, more often. With a large enforcement period, the QoS scheduler checks less often — and may therefore send traffic in larger blocks, less often.
