Can traffic policing and traffic shaping be configured on an interface in the outbound direction
Traffic policing (qos car) affects traffic shaping (qos gts). It is recommended that the two commands should be not configured on an interface simultaneously.

Differences between traffic shaping and traffic policing in the QoS function of the USG6000 series
Traffic shaping differs from traffic policing in the following aspects: �?Traffic shaping involves caching packets that exceed the traffic specifications in traffic policing. Cached packets are forwarded when there are sufficient tokens in the token bucket. �?Traffic shaping may increase the delay whereas traffic policing does not.
