I’m not certain what your topology is here.  Is the cache inside or outside the point where the router is fitted, or is it within the router, or off to the side on a separate port?

Also, the command shown will apply a limit to *egress* traffic on the given port.  If you need to do *ingress* shaping, there’s a different sequence of commands.
