MX Group Policy BW Limit Impacts

I've set up a group policy on the MX100 for 10Mbps up and down bandwidth, assigned it to a VLAN and assigned the VLAN to a port on the MX.  

 

By setting up bandwidth limits on the VLAN, does that have an impact on the other VLANs?  In other words, if the total Internet pipe is 200Mbps and I create a group policy for 10Mbps up and down bandwidth, does that restrict the rest of the network to 190Mbps?

OK.  Thanks for the response...that is what I thought.  In order to guarantee 10Mbps on the one VLAN, I will need to throttle bandwidth on the other VLANs.

Kind of a big deal

Re: MX Group Policy BW Limit Impacts

No it does not.

 

It only limits the maximum bandwidth on that one VLAN.  If no traffic is on that VLAN the other users will be able to use the full 200Mb/s.

Re: MX Group Policy BW Limit Impacts

If your looking to guarantee 10mbps on one VLAN it might be more practical to limit the rest of your vlans to 190mbps(assuming you have a dedicated 200mbps circuit), then unlimited on the VLAN your looking to guarantee BW.
