Traffic Shaping requirement

Our customer wants to shape the traffic to 40 mbps user.

 

I can see they have a QOS rule for all Traffic, class 4 is in use, does it mean the current shaping is 400 mbps?

 

Is it per client or overall? How do we achieve customer request (traffic shaping per user)?

Hi @FarzanaMustafa ,

 

Your screenshot shows a qos profile ... it does nothing by itself.

 

In your screenshot, the QoS profile limits Class 4 traffic to a maximum bandwidth of 400Mbps and without any guaranteed bandwith.

Note that class 4 is somewhat special.  Unless otherwise configured, traffic that does not match a QoS class is assigned a class of 4.

 

You'll need to configure qos rules to match a class and assign qos profiles to an interface.

Re: Traffic Shaping requirement

Thank you @kiwi for the response.

 

My question was how to use QoS for each user.

I have checked the link below and I think it is bandwidth guarantee for a single user, means we need to create one policy for each user? In the example, only the CEO is in the policy, he will get at least 50mbps, what if we add another user in this policy, will they have to share 50 or 50 for each?

Hi @FarzanaMustafa ,

 

If you put multiple users to the same policy they will share the 50.
