policy qos name <policy-name> shaper profile <profile-name> period <number>

Note: While you can find this command in the CLI, note that the value of period <number> is ignored on hardware platforms.

Controls the definition of the period of time to limit a burst for a QoS profile.

The 'enforcement period' affects how the QoS scheduler operates. In general, a short period will result in many small bursts of traffic, whilst a long period will result in fewer, larger bursts of traffic.

For example, if the maximum burst size is 1MB and the period is 20 milliseconds, then up to 1MB of traffic can be sent every 20 milliseconds.

Note: There is some 'coupling' between the period, burst and bandwidth arguments.
