Hi,

How can I police the incoming traffic coming on to ethernet interface, I don't want to queue or shape the traffic , simply all excess traffic more than due share must drop immediately. Like if I want limit overall incoming traffic on ethernet or vlan- should be 2 mb then any traffic more than 2 mb just get dropped. Does Mikrotik support cisco style policing?Any help would be highly appreciated. Thanks in advance.

Well, you can setup a simple queue on that interface with a queue length of 1, so that it would basically drop all the excess packets once the rate is exceeding the limit.
