  • 1.  Question about RE traffic rate limiting

    Posted 08-27-2022 20:05



    I've read that there is an in-built policer that rate limits exception traffic i.e. received traffic destined to the RE.


    What is the bandwidth limit of this policing?

    I can't find any reference in official documentation.  In discussions with Juniper sales engineers I recall the limit being 10M.  This is built in and not configured or adjustable.

    The purpose is to prevent taking down the RE accidentally or by DoS by directing too much traffic that would have to be processed by the RE.
