max bandwidth for a single port

Hi,
I got some 5406zl switches. Now I need on some switchports a traffic restriction with 4MBit.

is that possible and how can I do that?

Re: max bandwidth for a single port

Yes, you with 54xx can do any type of rate limiting on a per-port basis, such as icmp limit, ip, broadcast, mcast or all traffic limits.

For ex.
sw(config)# int a1 rate all out kbps 4000
sw(config)# int a1 rate all in kbps 4000

You can also use ip access-lists to fine tune your limits. Take a look at the man pages for details.
