When category max rate percentage is configured with a low value, for example, a lower value relative to the policy max user rate, some packets might be dropped.


The packets in flows using the bwc policy and category may be dropped, the flows mapped to the category might not be able to pass packets.


The bwc policy is configured as dynamic, with categories. And the category max rate is configured to low value when the policy is being provisioned and mapped to traffic flows.


Configure category rate in absolute value and higher value relative to policy max user rate.

Fix Information

Category max rate percentage is now configured to ensure valid settings.
