I was just wondering if its possible to rate limit both ingress and egress traffic on a cisco 6500 with a supervisor 720 engine. I've looked on cisco's website and the only way to do it i've found is through routed vlan's.

Is there a way to do this to manage traffic on a per port basis? IE We have a different customer off of each port and we would like to rate limit the port to 5 - 10 -15 - 20 megs.

You don't mention exactly which 720 you've got but you need 12.2(25) and the following command, look at its help and follow your nose;

srr-queue bandwidth

Oh and THIS link may help too.
