Thanks Dennis for your valuable advise.

>From the following website,

it mentioned that "CAR policing algorithm impacts performance due to its
additional use of processor resource. Typical performance impact may be
about 20 to 30%, although it would vary depending on the traffic mix and
the configured protocol:"... "Using an ACL with CAR will affect performance
depending on the type of ACL used"

The above document is meant for Cisco 6400 series. Does it applies to Cisco
7206 router?

May I know how bad is the impact on the CPU resources if the CAR is
configured on the virtual template, compared to configuration done via AAA?
