Bandwidth limits on the FortiExtender Thin Edge 7.0.2

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.

To configure a bandwidth limit:
  1. 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
  2. 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
  3. 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.
