Cisco Switching/Routing :: Rate Limit Trunk Port On 3750?
Oct 3, 2012
Is it possible to rate limit on a L2 trunk port on a 3750?
current port config and ios are as follows;
description *** Connection to Fiber Link ***
switchport trunk encapsulation dot1q
switchport trunk allowed vlan 1,172
switchport mode trunk
i was wondering if the "srr-queue bandwidth limit 10" command would work to limit the output from this interface to be 10 % of the port bandwidth and then the same command could be done on the other side.
I want to limit the bandwidth going to remote site on the switch connecting to our netapp.We have a 4 port channel group setup on our 3750x switch going to our netapp storage. We have a Wan 100mb link to our remote site and we want only 60MBs of that link to be used for Netapp traffic all other local traffic needs to use the full amount of the bandwidth to the netapp.
Is possible to allocate bandwidth in this way and how would I go about this? We dont have access to the routers for the link and they plug directly into a port on our cisco.
We had a core switch (Cisco 4503), distribution switches(Cisco 3750) and access switches in our network and consists of many vlans. Almost all vlans uses DHCP Pools. But for few vlans DHCP is not yet configured due to initial design poblems. Recently one of the rogue user in vlan 1 connected to one of the access switch send rogue arp packets to the network (suspecting arp packet with interface vlan 1 ip of core switch with wrong mac-address (gateway ip of vlan 1)) and resulted in a prolonged network outage for the vlan 1. Any way we are going to seggregate vlan 1 into different vlans, but before that we need a temporary plan to block such kinds of attack like enabling DAI in the switch. I have checked the DAI implemenation feasibility with my knowledge and found that it is not possible to configure to the access switches(Cisco 2960) in which the user directly connected. But found that Distribution switch connected to that particular access switch seems to be able to configure since DAI commands are available to configure in switch.
Is it possible to block ARP packets with the interface vlan 1 IP Address with rogue mac-address by configuring DAI in the above mentioned Distribution switch and the port connected to the mentioned access switch?
How to rate limit a 3560 inbound and outbound using different QoS methods. I've read about vlan class maps/policy maps, using the rate limit command on the physical interface, using the srr-queue bandwidth command(it's a gig switch so not sure that would work) and marking all packets and then applying QoS. I'm just learning QoS so trying to figure all of this out and find the best way to do things.
Also, I was told to do this because it's not advisable to have a connection to your ISP that is not 10mb or 100mb on a switch, since they are not divisible by 10 and it can cause issues?
I am using Cisco 3560 as distrubution switch and want to limit port 445 traffic on 1 MB and applied rate limit statment on Gi0/1 port but switch unable to limit said traffic.rate-limit output access-group 120 1024000 128000 128000 conform-action transmit exceed-action drop.
I am having an issue with VoiP phones giving me an insufficient bandwidth message. I have three remote locations connected to our main building using 2 Mb point to point ethernet solutions through TWC. Each remote location has a Cisco WS-C3560-24PS running IOS C3560-IPBASE-M, version 12.2(25) and have the cable modems plugged into port 1 on them. The remote buildings are labeled 192.168.101.xxx, 192.168.102.xxx, and 192.168.103.xxx. There are 14-16 VoiP phones in each remote building. The main building being in the subnet of 192.168.100.xxx. I have the 3560s connecting to a single port on a 2801 in the main building, all using the subnet of 192.168.253.xxx The phone server sits in our network at 192.168.100.203. I have created the ACLs, class maps, and policy maps on all of the equipment.
For the remote buildings I have the following:
ACL =========== Extended IP access list VOIP permit tcp any host 192.168.100.203 dscp ef permit tcp any host 192.168.100.203 eq 5566
I have put a hub in to capture traffic via Wireshark to see if DSCP flags are being appropriately marked and I do see that all VoiP packets are getting marked with as EF. However, I have been receiving phone calls from people in the remote buildings stating that their phones will cut out, flash Insufficient Bandwidth on the LCD displays and then the call will cut back in. I am wondering if the 2801 is not applying QoS with the rate-limits in mind since it is set to 100 Mb, or is it an issue with trying to take 3 remote locations and bring them down into 1 port on the 2801?
How (and is) it possible to rate limit pps on an interface (physical/logical), on a 6509-E?The porpuse is to protect from attacks which lead to very high pps, bypassing traffic rate-limits, and effecting the device's performance
I am configuring a 3560 to provide internet access for our customers and I need to make sure they don't use more bandwidth than they have contracted for.I see that the 3560 supports the rate-limit command, but was told that I should use traffic shaping and policing along with access lists to manage the bandwidth.Is there a reason that I should avoid using the rate-limit command - it looks much simpler.
Need to limit the amount of bandwidth a specific VLAN can use on a 802.1q trunk port. Situation is that we have a pair of Catalyst 4506 switches which have 802.1q trunk ports into a Checkpoint Firewall, this in turn is connected to a managed WAN router (to which I can't apply a QoS policy).If the 4506 was routing the traffic it would be easy to setup a class-map to match the IP traffic and then QoS the traffic, but the VLAN in question is trunked directly into the firewall (no L3/IP presence on the 4506 next hop for all clients on this VLAN is the firewall).What I need to do is restrict any traffic from this specific VLAN to 10Mbps on the uplink to the Checkpoint Firewall so it cannot impact the onward WAN.
I have a 3750g connected to a "core" switch stack of 7 other 3750g's via 2 GigE ports in a trunk. This is currently in a switchport mode access port- channel so only the default vlan data is sent over. Now we have a need due to physical location of these switches, to allow vlan20 (DMZ) from this 3750g to the switch stack. I will configure a few ports on the switch stack for vlan20 and they need to be able to talk to the stand alone 3750g.To do this I will change the port channel on both endpoints to
-switchport trunk ecapsulation dot1q
-switchport mode dynamic desirable
also making the appropriate change on the interfaces belonging to this trunk.My question is, now that its a trunk port that carries multiple VLANs, how much is the bandwidth reduced on that 2gbps link?I have a very active VLAN (10) on the stand alone switch, but on the core I'm not going to be assigning VLAN 10 to any ports. So does traffic from VLAN10 even come across the trunk (wasting bandwidth) if no ports on the core side are assigned to it? I really just need vlan 1 and 20 (for now).
We have a guest wireless setup but I need to rate limit the users so no one hogs all the bandwidth. The WLC is connected into a 3750 which is doing all the routing between the vlans. I know I cannot shape the traffic on the 3750.

I have a couple 3750 switches that I am trying to run VTP Version 3 on.one as primary and the other as "server" which implies secondary from my research. [code]Additionally, running a show VTP devices yields a "No VTP3 devices found" on both devices. Despite ensuring that the domainname and password match.I have a patch cable from Gi1/0/1 on switch one runnning to Gi1/0/1 which from what I read is acceptable on GigE.
I have client who has two distant offices with 3750 L3 as core (do all vlan routing for local office) and multiple L2 access switches with multiple VLAN’s connected to it. First 3750 is hub also connected to internet, second 3750 is spoke and acting as a router on stick. We have eigrp configured on both side ISP provided client 100Mbps link as a trunk with two vlan; vlan10 for voice and vlan20 for data. We assigned two small subnets to these vlans 10.15.17.0/29 and 10.15.17.9/29. Hub addresses are 10.15.17.1 and 10.15.17.9 respectively. How to force voice over VLAN10 and data via vlan20, but still do some load balancing? How to setup default route on second (router on stick) switch?
I am running the latest version of 12.2(55)SE6 on the catalyst and I am looking for this command "lacp rate fast" but it is not there:
lab-c3750#conf t Enter configuration commands, one per line. End with CNTL/Z. lab-c3750(config)#interface g1/0/5 lab-c3750(config-if)#lacp ? port-priority LACP priority on this interface lab-c3750(config-if)#lacp
According to this link, it is supposed to work: [URL]Am I missing something?
Currently we have a 6513 core (running IOS and doing limited routing) with VLAN Trunking to about a dozen 3560 edge switches, with various VLANs going to each of the edge switches. All works well. We are downsizing and replacing the 6513 core with a 3750G stack. We have the stack up and running in the lab, and want to slowly (as we move floors) migrate all of the edge switching to the 3750 stack.
The plan is to connect the 3750 stack to the 6513, then slowly migrate the edge switches to the stack (from the 6513). I would like to put in place 4 x 1GB trunk links between the 6513 and the 3750 stack before I start moving edge switches to ensure adequate bandwidth. Once all of the edge switches are on the new 3750 stack, I will start to decommission the 6513.
What is the best way to configure the links between the cores (old 6513 and new 3750 stack)? I can easily get the edge switches configured to the 3750, but am worried about the core links. I really want to avoid having to perform an all-at-once cutover of the cores. Another question is when do I try and migrate the VTP server role from the 6513 to the 3750 stack? I could simply make everything transparent, and ditch server-based VTP, as we rarely change or creat VLANs.
I am taking only undersize errors on catalyst 3750 trunk interface (attached some outputs)...the other end is a 4500 switch and the interface is clean..can this be related to any bug ? this is my root port and often leading to trouble sometimes STP BPDUs transportation are affected..
I have a 3750 as a core and have a series of HP Procurve switches that are daisy chained using one port. I have two vlans on the port now (6 &9) and everything works fine, all switches communicate and end devices on the switches are also talking. There is a requirement to add a device towards the end of the chain which requires it to connect using Vlan1. Once I add Vlan1 to the port onthe 3750 I lose connectivity to all the HP switches.
We have a stack of switches that is at the max number of members allowed in the stack. Problem is we are running out of port density and need to add more ports. So instead of adding a whole new stack I would rather replace 2 of the 24-port swicthes with 48-port switches.
If the two 24-port swicthes we are removing are stack members and neither of them are the stack master, I should be able to replace the 24-port switches with the 48-port switches without bringing the master offline? If the new 48-port switches are running the same IOS version as the current 24-port swicthes, they should add themselves to the stack?Would I have to tell the new 48-port swicthes what switch numbers they are replacing in order for them to be added to the stack since we are at the max number of members?Also since the 48-port swicthes are replacing 24-port switches will the master give the 48-port switches the configuration for only the 24-ports?
I have 2 Cisco 6509 switches linked together via single Fibre as a trunk.I want to change this to a port channel where I will add another 3 fibre ports to the port channel but what order do I do this to minimise any disruption.
1-Configure PortChannel and add the 3 new ports, this will bring up the Port Channel but what effect will this have on traffic currently going over the single Trunk link? Will spanning tree go mad, how will switches react?
2-Convert existing Trunk link to Portchannel then add in new ports to PortChannel, I guess in doing this there will be a small hit on traffic as it changes to a port channel.
We have 7 3560's in 7 different locations connected to our providor for wan access. Our provider has given us a copper cable at each point and we have connected it directly to our 3560 switch at each location. Each port is configured the same way at each location. Each switch is running eigrp.All of the switch ports on each switch are configured as a trunk and vlan 299 had the ip address for the eigrp connection: [code] This setup is working as each switch see's all of the other switches as an eigrp neighbor. We have also made sure that the switch at our head office has spanning tree priority for vlan 299.
So the problem is, if there is a change in the topology at one of the locations it usually causes one or more of the other connections to go down for some reason. We just cannot pinpoint what is causing this change. There are no log's or anything other than an eigrp hold time expired message.?
I have a pair of 3560's configured with dot1q trunks between them carrying a number of VLANs.
Once deployed there will be a requirement for these physical trunks to be disconnected from time to time. Knowing that this is inevitable I am trying to minimise the period of time for the trunks to recover once the physical connectivity is reinstated.
All of the VLANs on the switches are configured for Spanning Tree Rapid PVST. Current time for the trunks/VLANs to come up is around the 4 second mark.
Is it possible to use Port Security mechanism between two switch (3750 or 3560) ports while trunk has been configured? If it's not possible, is there any other way to ensure that no other Switch can be connected other then the one switch which has been configured/placed by a network engineer?
I want to limit the bandwidth of my Catalyst 3750 series switch, I read the cisco documentation and I applied the commands but I didn't get the wanted results.
For the outbound traffic it's ok, but for the inbound traffic I used policing but I get an unstable traffic. I used, an access list and a class-map to classify the traffic and then a policy-map.(I followed the steps mentioned in this site: [URL]
