Creating two traffic shaping policies

  1. Go to Policy & Objects > Traffic Shaping Policy and click Create New to create a shaping policy to set regular traffic to high priority.

    Under Matching Criteria, set Source, Destination, and Service to match your Internet access policy.

    Under Apply shaper, set the Outgoing Interface to match your Internet access policy and enable Shared Shaper and Reverse Shaper. Shared shapers affect upload speeds and reverse shapers affect download speeds. Set both shapers to high-priority.

  2. Click Create New to create a second traffic shaping policy to control the IP address you want to limit.

    Under Matching Criteria, set Source to limited_bandwidth. Set Destination and Service to ALL. Apply the shaper to the same Outgoing Interface. Enable Shared Shaper and Reverse Shaper and set both shapers to limited_bandwidth.

  3. Order your traffic shaping policies so that your more granular limited_bandwidth policy is above your general high-priority Internet access policy.
