i need for my client to have rate limiting rules on my icx 6430;
for single links it's easy with the rate limiting parameter.
for some clients i need to enable LACP to produce a secure double link (for failover and High Availability reasons etc... )
AND Rate Limiting doesn't work on LACP ports.
Is there any way to rate limite on VLAN ?
I get client's VLAN from a Trunk and i detagg with my delivery port to my client's network.

FYI....Depending on the kind of traffic on the link (for example, Windows folder redirection), it's possible to get unexpected results with FastIron rate limiting. Pushing a 10 Mbit limit on a gigabit port means that the port will pass all traffic for the first 1/100 of a second, and then drop all packets for the remaining 99% of the second, until the next second begins. To some systems this will look like an intermittent connection. Which it basically is!

thanks for your answer,
then i should use adaptive rate limiting ? to get better (softer) shaping.
this is a internet delivery switch behind a router, so my clients use this link to put their servers on internet. and i used to have other vendor where i had rate-limiting egress and ingress on each port.
