    QOS map for clients on a vlan

    nativepdx New Member

      Wondering if I should be able to create a QOS map that sets a rate limit for each client on a particular vlan. The idea is to prevent any one user from grabbing all the available bandwidth.

          nativepdx - I need some more information before I can provide any suggestions regarding how to set this up.

           

          1. How many clients are you wanting to set this up for?

          2. Could you provide a configuration for us to look at? (Please remember to edit any information that may be sensitive to your network)

           

          Based on your description, you may find the 'multi-tenant' config example helpful (Example #4). This example can be found in the following document:

           

          Configuring QoS in AOS

           

          This will give you the ability to limit the rate of outbound traffic for each client. However, you face a limitation as to how many shapers you can configure. The limit currently is 5 per QoS map.

           

          Please let us know if you have any further questions.

           

          Thanks,

          Noor

              Noor,

               

                  this is a hotel.  what were trying to do is rate limit each guest because the available bandwidth is so limited. Certainly more than five concurrent users. this feature is supported on a very low end competitors router that were trying to replace.

                  Mark,

                   

                  With the AOS product you have, I would suggest grouping your users and applying a QoS policy for those users accordingly. For example, you could have users grouped as the following: Guests, Management, Executive Guests. For each of these groups, you could specify how much bandwidth they would be allowed to use and this would prevent one group or user from grabbing all of the available bandwidth.

                   

                  It may be possible that the NetVanta UTM product can provide the functionality you are looking for. However, I would suggest you contact Adtran's Application Engineers and run the application by them. You can contact them in several ways:

                   

                  1. Create a webticket at the following link: Create a Service Request

                  2. Email support@adtran.com

                  3. Call 1-888-4ADTRAN

                   

                  Let us know if you have any questions.

                   

                  Thanks,

                  Noor

                      Noor,

                       

                        I don’t thinking grouping would help.  The idea is to restrict a single guest from being able to confiscate all available bandwidth. If I understand your approach I could create a  group labeled “guests” and limit the bandwidth to the group as a whole. But any one individual in the group would still be able to grab all the bandwidth assigned to the group.

                       

                      I will open a new ticket and ask for  application engineering support

                       

                      Thanks,  as always your help is much appreciated
