Abstract

See full text

In one embodiment, a node receives traffic sent from one or more sources toward one or more destinations (e.g., Multipoint-to-Point, MP2P traffic). The node may detect a burst of received traffic based on one or more characteristics of the burst traffic, and, in response, may dynamically apply traffic shaping to the burst traffic. The traffic shaping is adapted to forward burst traffic received below a configurable threshold at a configurable pace and to drop burst traffic received above the configurable threshold. In addition, the node may also store the burst traffic dropped by traffic shaping, and forwards the stored burst traffic toward its destination after a configurable delay.
