About Traffic Management

In Fireware v11.9 and higher:

  • There are three Traffic Management Action types:
    • All Policies — Action settings apply to the combined bandwidth of all policies that use the action.
    • Per Policy — Action settings apply individually to each policy that uses the action.
    • Per IP Address — Action settings apply individually to each source IP address for any policy that uses the action.
  • Traffic Management Actions are not restricted to a specific Firebox interface.
  • You can assign separate Traffic Management Actions for forward and reverse traffic managed by a policy.
  • You can apply Traffic Management Actions to applications and application categories, in addition to policies.
  • The Traffic Manager tab in Firebox System Manager shows detailed traffic management statistics.
  • The Traffic Management System Status page in Fireware Web UI shows detailed traffic management statistics.

The maximum number of configurable Traffic Management Actions depends on the device model:

  • Firebox T10, T30, and M200: 100
  • XTMv, FireboxV, Firebox M300, Firebox T50, and Firebox T70: 300
  • XTM 800 Series and higher, Firebox M400, M440, M500: 500
