  1. Browse the Internet using a PC on your internal network to generate daily web traffic and also generate FTP traffic.

    The FTP sessions should occur slowly.

  2. Generate SIP traffic.
  3. Go to FortiView > Traffic Shaping and check the three traffic shapers.

    If the standard traffic volume is high enough, it will top out at the maximum bandwidth defined by each shaper.

    The high-priority VoIP (SIP) policy should show no dropped bytes. Either of the other two policies might show dropped bytes if the set bandwidth is maxed out.

    This allows normal voice quality on VoIP calls even with daily traffic and FTP downloads.

  4. Select the graph icon to switch to bubble graph view.

    Sort by Bandwidth and hover over a shaper to view details.

    Double-click to drill down for more details.
