Hi every one, today I would like to share experiences how to create a effective traffic policy
Traffic Shaping (QoS) is a method to guarantee a bandwidth between individual applications or protocols, you can do this at the application level, web category level, user/group level or firewall rule level.
But first at all, you need to decide on your strategy for shaping traffic.
Step 1: Total Available WAN Bandwidth
Step 2: Create Traffic Shaping Policy
First Look, we see a lot of pre-built templates
Option: Add Schedule wise Traffic Shaping Policy Details to override default Traffic Shaping Policy Details
Step 3: Apply Traffic Shaping Policy
- User/Group based
Go to Groups what be created manually or synchronized from AD.
Create a Firewall Rule for this group
- Rule based
User’s traffic shaping policy will be applied automatically if Match known users is selected.You need to select traffic shaping policy for the rule if Match known users is not selected.
- Application & Web based
