Guaranteed minimum bandwidth (GMB)

GMB provides a method for ensuring that each of a given port's outbound traffic priority queues has a specified minimum consideration for sending traffic out on the link to another device. This can prevent a condition where applications generating lower-priority traffic in the network are frequently or continually "starved" by high volumes of higher-priority traffic. You can configure GMB per-port and, in the case of the 2920 and 5400R switches, per static trunk.
