Converting QoS EOS understanding to EXOS, which is causing me a little confusion.....
My understanding between the difference of rate limiting and rate shaping is the former simply sets a red line, so anything above it can be dropped. Whereas the later is more smooth and buffered.
Could someone please give me an example configuration of the two in EXOS to help me understand this?
Also a practical use for each. So for example, I might use traffic shaping for voice or video, and rate limiting for say backup traffic. The reason is the voice and video wouldn't be so tolerant to packet drops then say backup traffic, so I would want to buffer voice where I can rather than drop - would that be an accurate analogy?
Many thanks in advance.
