police
This keyword exists mainly for 'organizational' purposes, to structure the configuration path for relevant command strings. 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.
burst <limit>
The burst size limit, in number of bytes. This is the amount of traffic that can pass unrestricted through an interface when a burst of traffic pushes the average transmit rate above the configured bandwidth limit. The burst size must be greater than the maximum transmission unit (MTU) size.
