policy qos name <policy-name> shaper bandwidth <limit>

Controls definition of the maximum bandwidth of a QoS policy.

This bandwidth command is at the highest level of three different locations where you can apply a bandwidth command in the scheduling hierarchy.

This bandwidth command defines the maximum values of the bandwidth commands that the lower levels can have. If you do not configure a bandwidth command for the QoS policy then the bandwidth at this level will default to the egress interface's line rate.
