GD – Graceful Discard

Graceful Discard is a Frame Relay term in which frames above the committed frame rate may be dropped to avoid network congestion. It is termed graceful since this process is agreed between the network provider and network user. The Frame Relay network will support information up to the committed information rate; above this rate, cells may be dropped.
