The FortiGate LAN extension controller can push a bandwidth limit to the FortiExtender Thin Edge. The limit is enforced on the FortiExtender using traffic shaping.
On the FortiGate, create a LAN extension profile with bandwidth control enabled and a bandwidth limit configured (in Mbps):
config extender-controller extender-profile edit "FX200F-lanext-default" set model FX200F set extension lan-extension set enforce-bandwidth enable set bandwidth-limit 20 next end
Add a FortiExtender in LAN extension mode and apply the profile to it:
config extender-controller extender edit "FX0035919000000" set id "FX200F5919000000" set authorized enable set extension-type lan-extension
set profile "FX200F-lanext-default" next end
On the FortiExtender, confirm that the bandwidth configuration has been pushed to it:
config firewall shaper config traffic-shaper edit le-traffic-shaper set max-bandwidth 20 set bandwidth-unit mbps next end end config firewall shaping-policy edit le-shaping-policy set status enable set dstintf le-agg-link set traffic-shaper le-traffic-shaper next end
If bandwidth enforcement is disabled on the FortiGate, the configuration that was pushed to the FortiExtender will be removed.
