Bandwidth throttle per website.

Is there a way to throttle streaming from specific websites?  We have set QOS on specific applications like HULU but are wanting to allow limited bandwidth to specific flash streaming sites while allowing full bandwidth to other sites.

Re: Bandwidth throttle per website.

Hello and thank you for this question.

This is a feature we are frequently asked at this time of the year because of March madness.

The problem with crafting rules around a FQDN is that they must remain static in order for it to work.

For instance you could create a policy based forward rule that would redirect all traffic destine for a given ip address through a dedicated interface and then QOS all traffic from that egress interface. In this scenario it would require you identify all ip’s you might hit at Hulu and that they not change.

Otherwise unless you want to QOS a given app we really don’t have a canned method to suit your request.
