    Bandwith control

    dcorrea Visitor

      Hello Guys,


      Good afternoon, I'm writing you for ask about a possibility of apply a bandwidth control on a LAN. The situation is this:


      I have a main router (NV3458) which receives a 30Mbps Ethernet link, and for the LAN I'm using a NV1234 switch which connects 4 applications servers which receive connections from remote sites. Now my client wants to install another server but he wants to be able to limit the use of bandwidth (no more than 4Mbps, for download/upload).


      So I want to ask if I could achieve this!?


      Thanks in advance,

          dcorrea - Yes, you should be able to do this using QoS maps on the NetVanta 3458. The summary below explains at a high level what will need to be configured on the NetVanta 3458:


          You will need to create a QoS map that will match traffic being sourced from the server. The QoS map will then shape the matching traffic to the 4Mbps throughput the customer desires. This QoS map will need to be applied to the Ethernet WAN interface so that the traffic throughput is restricted for the server.


          Further details on QoS and an example similar to what I explained above can be found in the link provided below. Example #4 should be the closest implementation to what you are looking to do.
