Interface rate limiting while on bridge

Mon Oct 22, 2012 5:50 pm

I am trying to set up rate limiting on an Ethernet port that is on a bridge. I want to use a device to aggrigate everyones traffic while restricting a single port to 30Mbps. I have the device set up with a single bridge that all ports are assiciated to. I then set a simple queue on one of the Ethernet ports but it doesn't work. The simple queue works if it is on a port that isn't part of the bridge but not when its part of the bridge.

Due to my IP limitations I have to have the device bridging all of the ports. Is there a way to limit a spacific Ethernet port that is part of the bridge?

My mikrotik accepted this config.
/queue simple
add max-limit=5M/5M name=queue1 target=bridge1
Haven't tested it yet but I think it will limit traffic of interface bridge1 with 5Mbps for upload and download.

EDIT: Sorry I read it again you want to rate-limit a port that is a member of a bridge?
/queue simple
add max-limit=2M/2M name=queue1 target=port5
In this case port5 is a member of bridge1 and a simple queue can rate-limit the port.
