Subject: [c-nsp] Rate limiting but on packet count not bandwidth

Hi guys

Does anyone have any idea if rate limiting traffic based on packet
count would be possible on Cat3550/3560/3570 or any Cisco router?
I would need to limit some users which don't generate much of
traffic (only about 5 or 6Mbps), but packet count is huge (30k+ per sec).

So is there some option to limit their fraffic to let's say 5000packets/sec
regardless on bandwidth they use?

Thanks for help.

Have fun,
Primoz Jeroncic
