Use Traffic Shaping Settings page to configure default Traffic Shaping settings. All the bandwidth related data are displayed only with unit KBps (Kilo bytes per second).
Below are the screen elements with their description:
Total Available WAN Bandwidth
Specify maximum bandwidth limit in KB. It is generally a sum of all WAN links maximum limits.
Default - 100000 KB
Acceptable Range (KB) - 1 to 2560000
Optimize for Real-Time (VoIP)
Enable to give priority to real time traffic like VOIP over all other traffic.
If disabled, priority will be applicable only for excess bandwidth i.e. bandwidth remaining after guaranteed bandwidth allocation.
Enforce Guaranteed Bandwidth
