The Problem

We have a multicast server with a 10Gbit/s interface, but our clients can't handle more than 100Mbit/s. Either we need to use a separate interface at 100Mbit/s for all multicast traffic, or we need to limit the bandwidth the multicast service uses on a shared interface. This section investigates the use of bandwidth limiting on a shared interface.
