Speed limit on network interface using TC

I will give an example of a speed limit of up to 3.3 Gb/s on a network interface on Ubuntu Server 16.04:

/sbin/tc qdisc add dev ens2f0 handle ffff: ingress
/sbin/tc filter add dev ens2f0 parent ffff: protocol ip prio 50 u32 match ip dst police rate 3300mbit burst 330k mtu 30000 drop flowid 1:0
