Configuring a traffic shaper to limit bandwidth

  1. Go to Policy & Objects > Traffic Shapers and select Create New to define a new shared Traffic Shaper profile.

    Set Type to Shared.

    Enter a Name (in this example, limited_bandwidth) and set the Traffic Priority to Medium.

    Set Max Bandwidth to 200 Kbps.

    If you want to set a Guaranteed Bandwidth, make sure the rate is lower than the Max Bandwidth.

    Apply your changes.

  2. By default, shared shapers apply shaping by evenly distributing the bandwidth to all policies using it. You can enable per policy shaping to apply shaping individually to each policy. Right-click your limited_bandwidth shaper and select Edit in CLI from the drop down menu.

    Enter the following CLI command:

    set per-policy enable

    end

  3. With per policy shaping enabled, edit your limited_bandwidth shaper and verify that Apply shaper is set to Per policy.
