After I typed the following
police command for a type qos class on a Cisco Nexus 7000 switch:
police cir 8 kbps pir 8 kbps
I get the following message:
Note: pir/max-burst ignored
Can someone explain why PIR is ignored?
Because the 7K has a hard policer. There is no notion of peak vs committed rates. Once you pass the CIR it will start dropping packets.
