R Commands


This chapter describes the Cisco NX-OS system management commands that begin with the letter R.

rate-limit

To configure the source rate limit for Ethernet Switched Port Analyzer (SPAN) packets in the specified SPAN session, use the rate-limit command. To remove the rate limit configuration, use the no form of this command.

rate-limit {auto | 1-100}

no rate-limit

Syntax Description

auto

Automatically calculates the rate limit on a per gigabyte basis as follows: destination bandwidth/aggregate source bandwidth.

1-100

Specifies the percentage of the maximum rate of SPAN packets that can be sent out from each forwarding engine on a line card. The range is from 1 to 100.


Defaults

Disabled

Command Modes

Monitor configuration (config-monitor)

Supported User Roles

network-admin
vdc-admin

Command History

Release
Modification

5.2(1)

This command was introduced.


Usage Guidelines

Make sure that you are in the correct virtual device context (VDC). To change the VDC, use the switchto vdc command.

MTU truncation and the SPAN rate limit cannot be enabled for the same SPAN session. If you configure both for one session, only the rate limit is allowed on F1 Series modules, and MTU truncation is disabled until you disable the rate limit configuration.


Note SPAN rate limit is supported only on F1 Series modules and F2 Series modules.


This command does not require a license

Examples

This example shows how to configure the rate limit for SPAN packets in the specified SPAN session:

switch# configure terminal
switch(config)# monitor session 3
switch(config-monitor)# rate-limit 30
switch(config-monitor)#
 
   

This example shows how to remove the rate limit configuration for SPAN packets in the specified SPAN session:

switch# configure terminal
switch(config)# monitor session 3
switch(config-monitor)# no rate-limit
