Interface-based traffic shaping profile

A traffic shaping policy can be used for interface-based traffic shaping by organizing traffic into 30 class IDs. The shaping profile defines the percentage of the interface bandwidth that is allocated to each class. Each traffic class ID is shaped to the assigned speed according to the outgoing bandwidth limit configured to the interface.

Traffic classification

A shaping policy classifies traffic and organizes it into different class IDs, based on matching criteria. For traffic matching a criteria, you can choose to put it into 30 different shaping classes, identified by class ID 2 to 31.

You must select an outgoing interface for the traffic. The shaping policy is only applied when the traffic goes to one of the selected outgoing interfaces.




  • Address: match the source address of the traffic to the selected address or address group.
  • User: use the user credentials of the traffic to match the selected user or user group. At least one address, address group, or internet service must also be selected.
  • Internet service: match the traffic to the selected internet service. Internet services cannot be used if addresses or address or groups are used.
