The burst function improves packet buffering and forwarding performance in the following scenarios:
Dense broadcast or multicast traffic and massive burst traffic are present.
High-speed traffic is forwarded over a low-speed link or traffic received from multiple interfaces at
the same speed is forwarded through an interface at the same speed.
By enabling the burst function on your device, you can improve the processing performance of the device
operating in these scenarios to reduce packet loss.
Make sure that you are fully aware of the impacts when enabling the burst function, because the burst
function may affect the QoS performance of your device.
Make sure that the burst function is necessary for addressing your problem.
To enable the burst function:
Enter system view.
Enable the burst function.
Burst configuration example
In the customer network shown in
Ethernet interface. The server sends dense broadcast or multicast traffic to the hosts irregularly. Each host
connects to the switch through a 100 Mbps network adapter.
Configure the switch to process dense traffic from the server to guarantee that packets can reach the
23, a server connects to the switch through a 1000 Mbps
