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

Controls the definition of the maximum bandwidth of a QoS profile.

The overall bandwidth that is set for the parent policy determines the maximum bandwidth that all child profiles under that policy may use. This bandwidth command controls the maximum amount of bandwidth that this profile will use as a portion of the parent policy's overall bandwidth.

Note: On the software platforms, each policy instance may have multiple profiles.

If you do not configure a shaper profile <profile-name> bandwidth <limit> command then the child profile will be able to use up to 100% of the parent policy's bandwidth. Note that this profile bandwidth is the parent to this profile's four traffic class bandwidth commands.

name <policy-name>
The name of a QoS policy.
profile <profile-name>
The name of a QoS profile.
bandwidth <limit>

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

For more, see bandwidth <limit>.
