I have a query regarding traffic shaping on the Cisco 3850-XS for a particular scenario. We have a 10Gbps connection between two locations and we need to establish a logical trunk over this to separate different traffic from one another.
We plan to use VLANs and VRFs for this. Between the two locations for each VLAN we will use a /30, SVI. I would like to restrict the amount of traffic egressing out of each VLAN either side of the connection. There will be no hosts within the VLAN, the VLAN and SVI will simply be a transit Vlan.
I was thinking I would enable traffic shaping and shape the traffic to a configured amount of the 10Gbps. The switch appears to take the commands but I’m not sure if this is the right way to achieve the objective or I should consider something else? I can’t use a native routed connection between the sites as there is a requirement for potentially several separate routing tables, hence the trunk and SVIs.
