pppoe rate limit mechanism

Wed Dec 01, 2010 9:57 pm

hi all
i want to know what mechanism or algorithm is used in pppoe sessions in order to limit bandwidth.
and does mikrotik as BRAS loss bits in order to police or shape bandwidth on pppoe sessions?
if so it means that clients can send data with maximum line capacity and while data arriving to BRAS it shape and police it?

By default there is no rate limit, if a rate limit is defined it is implemented as a simple queue (see link) that is dynamically created on login and torn down on log off specific to the client IP address. It is possible to override that with queue trees.
