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.
frame-overhead <overhead>

Defines an additional allowance to the length of a packet in bytes that a shaper can make during calculation of bandwidth. You can adjust this to make the QoS scheduler more accurate.
