Internet Traffic

Hi Community,


This is my first message and hope I am in the right place. I am tasked with taking our single internet connection (4Gbps) and carve in two lanes.  One lane will service normal traffic; internet, vpn, remote access, telephony, etc. The second lane would be dedicated to send backups data to the cloud.  I'd like to take a 75/25 approach where 75% of the bandwidth is dedicated to normal traffic and 25% to backup traffic to the cloud.  I have some ideas in mind but was hoping to get pointed in the right direction. 


Thanks in advance,

Hello @DarylMaurice, assuming I'm understanding your question correctly a setting up QoS would be your best bet. You could set up a QoS profile and set a class to a max of 25% (lets say class 3 for this example). With a QoS profile, any traffic not specified will be class 4.


Under Network>QoS, click create and attach to your egress interface. In your case the Egress max would be 4000. Attach the QoS profile you just created to the clear text and/or tunnel interface. 



You will also need to create a QoS rule to say what traffic you designate for what class. Under policies>QoS, select create. Say for example you create a rule with a destination of your cloud backup (we'll say And under other settings select the class you want it to apply to (in this example, class 3).


You can do this with other traffic you want identified, and again remember anything not specified by a qos rule will default to class 4. 


Let me know if this helps!
