traffic policing

Traffic policing is a traffic flow method, similar to traffic shaping

, which monitors network traffic and compliance with agreed network rules and enforces their enforcement with appropriate measures. Unlike traffic shaping, traffic policing destroys non-compliant data packets

and does not cache them.The appropriate components, traffic policers, typically reside at the edge of a DiffServ domain and check the conformity of traffic from other domains

. Data sources that operate under contractual policies can apply traffic shaping to ensure that their traffic is compliant with the contract and does not violate the rules. Non-compliant traffic can be immediately discarded and marked as non-compliant.
