Add a Traffic Management Action to a Policy

    The Traffic Management page appears.
  2. In the Traffic Management Policies list, select one or more policies.

  1. In the Select action drop-down list, select the traffic management action to apply to the selected policies.
  2. Click Save.

You can also set connection rate limits for a policy on the Advanced tab. For more information, see Set Connection Rate Limits.

If you have a multi-WAN configuration, bandwidth limits are applied separately to each interface.

Add a Traffic Management Action to Multiple Policies

When the same traffic management action is added to multiple policies, the maximum and minimum bandwidth apply to each interface in your configuration. If two policies share an action that has a maximum bandwidth of 100 kbps on a single interface, then all traffic on that interface that matches those policies is limited to 100 kbps total.

If you have limited bandwidth on an interface used for several applications, each with unique ports, you might need all the high priority connections to share one traffic management action. If you have lots of bandwidth to spare, you could create separate traffic management actions for each application.
