police

However, it also introduces some additional bandwidth or rate limit restrictions on packets that the system identifies by the match rule that you specify elsewhere in the command string.
bandwidth <limit>

The maximum bandwidth. Vyatta uses a 'maximum bandwidth' model of QoS, rather than a 'guaranteed bandwidth' model.
