Question
Why does the rate-limit policy get applied to all ports on rate-limit group even though the policy is configured for particular port?
Environment
  • NetIron
  • MLXe
  • MLX
  • XMR
  • All NI versions
Answer
As per traffic guide:
  1. If a VLAN based policing is configured on a port for a particular VLAN, the policing will be applicable to all ports on that Network Processor that belong to that VLAN.
  2. A traffic policing policy can be applied to a VLAN group. VLANs that are members of a VLAN group share the specified bandwidth defined in the traffic policing policy applied to that group.

 
Additional notes
Rate-limit config applied on any port in a rate-limit VLAN group is applicable to all ports in the group within the same PPCR.
