What does the asterisk (*) mean next to the partition size on the Monitor Traffic screen?



On the Monitor Traffic screen, there is an asterisk next to all the partition sizes.

What does this asterisk mean?


If you see an asterisk (*) next to the partition size on the Monitor Traffic screen, you are overcommitting (or oversubscribing) the link.

When this happens, PacketWise will scale back all partition sizes and add the * on the monitor page to indicate that this adjustment has occurred. In this situation, PacketWise will only burst if the partition burst limit has been explicitly set to a value.

So if you are overcommitting the link, your partitions should have a size and a burst limit, for example 2M-2M. If Burstable is selected but no value is entered for Limit, the partition will actually be non-burstable.

The Partition Summary shows additional information about overcommittment.
