Aruba 5406zl2, cannot configure rate limit bcast on trunk ports or trunk member ports

Hello,

I'm trying to implement bcast limit on downlinks/uplinks and cross-building interconnects but I'm receiving message that this feature is not enabled on trunk or trunk member ports. Is there any plan to enable this feature?


Aruba5406(eth-Trk1)# rate-limit bcast in kbps 200
Trk1: Option cannot be set on a trunk.

Aruba5406(eth-1/51)# rate-limit bcast in kbps 200
1/51: Operation is not allowed for a trunked port.

My OS is : KB.16.07.0003

Thank you

Hi Adam_Kmet,

 

I have done some research and it seems that the rate limit feature is not configurable on aggregated trunks (trunks).

https://support.hpe.com/hpsc/doc/public/display?docId=emr_na-c01978920

 

Also in the config guide the below is written for ICMP but it applies for all kinds of rate limiting:

 

Operating notes for ICMP rate-limiting (Page 224):

Interface support: ICMP rate-limiting is available on all types of ports (other than trunk ports or mesh ports),and at all port speeds configurable for the switch”
